The Thirteenth Floor

{3/5} “He made himself a god, and it corrupted him.”

The Thirteenth Floor, released in 1999

Douglas Hall works at a computer software company where they’ve been working on something revolutionary — an artificial world where the characters think they’re real people. His boss, Hannon Fuller, was murdered and Douglas can’t remember what he was doing at that time. Hannon had been going into the simulation even though it wasn’t safe. Douglas goes in himself to find out what’s going on — it’s a simulation of 1937.

Some people think this is a great movie, but I don’t see it. There’s an interesting story within it and the actors do what they can, but it’s far from great.

There’s a twist but you can see it coming a mile away.

If you’re a fan of film noir and have some patience, you might want to check it out.

Stars Craig Bierko, Gretchen Mol, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Dennis Haysbert. Directed by Josef Rusnak (Beyond).
