Storyline

In Talbot, Ohio, a father's need for surgeries puts the family in a financial bind. His son Vince, an electrician, overhears a man talking about making a fortune in just a day. When the man overdoses on drugs, Vince finds instructions and a cell phone that the man has received and substitutes himself: taking a train to New York and awaiting contact. He has no idea what it's about. He ends up at a remote house where wealthy men bet on who will survive a complicated game of Russian roulette: he's number 13. In flashbacks we meet other contestants, including a man whose brother takes him out of a mental institution in order to compete. Can Vince be the last one standing? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Babluani Has Made The Same Movie
21 October 2010 | by shiola_7See all my reviews

I've just returned from the premiere screening of 13 in Tbilisi. I want to make parallels between original and remake. I've seen many remakes and their originals, but those remade ones had added something new and fresh. I was watching 13 and I had impression that I've already watched it earlier. It was original one converted in colors. Black & White was one of the main factor that added to original one high tension. 13 has almost every minor nuance that is shown in Tzameti, same actions, places, characters. Dialogues are just translated from French to English. Only difference is that characters of Mickey Rourke and 50 Cent don't appear in Tzameti. I realize that Gela made that movie for Americans and the target audience is the people who haven't seen Tzameti, but for us who were waiting for 2-3 years for that he didn't add anything new to his project.

Despite my disappointing I think that this movie deserves recognition and success. If I haven't watched Tzameti, I'd undoubtedly love 13.

Gela Babluani is one of the most hopeful movie directors nowadays and I hope that he'll gain recognition and will make his new projects successfully. I'll be proud with it.
