"13 Days To Die" is a film that fails to grab you from the start, and maintains this lack of grip throughout. At no point does the story, about a stolen necklace whose stones are arranged in such a way as to form a code possibly leading to a long-undiscovered treasure, become even remotely interesting. The film looks good (I watched a surprisingly slick widescreen transfer), and has a lot of Thailand color and atmosphere to it. But it's so dull and flat that I actually had to take a nap in the middle of it and finished it later! Somehow the only memorable scenes feature animals - a tiger attack, a crocodile attack, and a monkey monkeying around. There is also a black bodybuilder who spends the entire second half of the movie with his shirt off, and a sweet-faced (and sweet-dubbed, at least in the English version) Thai girl. * out of 4.
