THIRTEEN ( MA)
Stars: Jason Statham, Ray Winstone Director: Gela Babluani Available: Wednesday on DVD and BD
Director Gela Babluani remakes his sadistic crime thriller for the English language market here, but sadly some of the magic that made the first so gripping is missing. The action and drama centres on a young man who is in such a desperate need of money he gets mixed up in an underworld gambling game of Russian roulette. And in these games the winner gets rich and the losers get dead. None of the big-name actors really have much to do in this and while the death scenes are certainly thrilling, everything in between tends to drag.
