Computer scientist Hannon Fuller (Armin Mueller-Stahl) finds something extremely important. Knowing that he's marked for assassination, he leaves a message in the virtual reality world he's designed, hoping it will be found by colleague Douglas Hall (Craig Bierko). Hall is a suspect in Fuller's murder and indeed finds a bloody shirt in his house, with no recollection of what he did the night before. Hall plunges headlong into Fuller's world (a re-creation of l937 Los Angeles) to try to unravel the slaying and is soon knee-deep in confusion and trouble. What this film lacks in character depth and plot cohesiveness it makes up for in special effects and high concept. Fans of films like Blade Runner, Dark City, eXistenZ, and even the game Sim City should find this appealing. Of course, there's the question of letting the computers do all the heavy lifting in films while the humans walk through the plot (an all-too-familiar scenario in 1999), but the re-creation of '30s Los Angeles is certainly something to see, pallid script and acting or not. The Thirteenth Floor is a stylish modern-day noir that raises questions about technology versus reality, all the while wrapped up in a murder-mystery story line. --Jerry Renshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This got overshadowed by the similarly-themed MATRIX which came out at about the same time...but it deserves to be seen. It's a VERY good movie.Published on Aug. 12 2013 by Michael Milley
A must see movie. Could be a soul or spirit jump between lives, who is the creator? Something to think about.Published on Sept. 17 2011 by Raz
Great thriller, which will keep you guessing until the last frame. The last twist makes you question what reality is. Read morePublished on Nov. 24 2007 by Aeneas
Why do people keep saying this is a MATRIX ripoff? This movie is based on the novel SIMULCRON-3 that was written in 1962!!
I think that predates the MATRIX by a few years. Read more

I saw the Matrix and Reloaded before viewing this movie (just to clear the air). I liked it but it was very predictable. Read morePublished on Oct. 21 2003 by Manta
