The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

13 (2010)



Starring: Sam Riley, Ray Winstone, Mickey Rourke, Jason Stratham, Michael Shannon
Director: Géla Babluani

Premise:
A young man takes the identity of another man and finds himself involved in a high stakes game of life and death...where there is only one winner.

My Take:
I love the original French movie. The remake follows it closely (it has the same director) and has a stellar cast. But somehow the American version loses some of the intense emotional the impact.
Worth watching if you've never seen the original.

Rating: In the middle (with upside)
