New York Times:
A tense, paranoid nightmare with a chilly metaphysical overview has been trampled into a blustering, bad cartoon.
Aside from some character-defining flashbacks, a godawful score and sweat-enhancing color photography, it's the same movie as before -- a divertingly tense yet superficial time-waster.
Making a film about the cutthroat world of Russian Roulette is a little like making a gambling thriller about the card game War.
Gela Babluani's English-language remake of his French debut loses the source's gritty, mysterious gloom.
New York Post:
"13'' is Gela Babluani's American remake of his successful 2005 Georgian-language film "13 Tzameti.'' He should have left well enough alone.
A starry cast and glossier production values simply work against the black-and-white original's strengths in this stillborn thriller.
[A] half-hearted redundancy, which often looks and sounds like something Charles Bronson paid bills with in 1979.
