Powerhouse names, but not quite a powerhouse film!By zedphelan (84 reviews) from London , 01 Jan 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]A young man assumes the head of the household while his father is badly injured in hospital. In order to pay the hospital bills he needs to find money and fast. While on a job in a private household he overhears his employers talking about a mysterious job which is going to make him rich.
The guy overdoses and the young man assumes the man's identity to carry out this job in his place. Unfortunate for him he finds himself pulled into a dark, violent gang underworld where man gamble in the lives of others.
Why Gela Babluani decided to remake his own film is beyond me and not having seen the original I can not make any comparisons between the two.
Dark, moody and pretty grim throughout this film is full of big names from Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Ray Winstone, 50 Cent and even the lead from the film Control, Sam Riley who plays the naive, miserable young man perfectly.
A fairly decent time filler for those thrill seekers out there.

well worth a watch.By lordofming (1 review) , 09 Jan 2013well worth a watch, best film i have seen in a while, different story line but good. what a game. if you like the gun scene in the Deer Hunter you will love this.
Poor effortBy sillyboyfish (1 review) from Hope Valley , 07 Jan 2013not impressed with this film , no real plot ,slow start expected more considering the top names in the movie.
Predictable ganster flickBy Rhodri80 (9 reviews) , 03 Jan 2013British gangster movie with an American setting. Gritty with a suitably dour ending. A bit formulaic but will appeal to fans of the genre.
Sounds good but a waste!By Hendo61 (1 review) , 31 Dec 2012I will try keep this short and sweet.... 13 has a really slow start, didn't really feel pulled into it and i could have lost focus easily but i didn't. It has a few big names but they weren't in it as much as i hoped they would be. The plot was interesting in some parts but predictable in others which was slightly disappointing. My first review, sorry if it isn't up to high standards but hey either is the film!!
Unusual storylineBy Sueh (13 reviews) , 22 Dec 2012I thought this was a good film. Quite an unusual story. I have read some of the other reviews but it is worth watching it kept me gripped right to the end
