First of all, if you could handle Tzameti 13 you'll be sorely disappointed in 13.
This Hollywood "rehash" resembles more closely, the Hostel series but with more jump scares, or "Saw", but with guns.
Jason Stratham, Ray Winstone, Mickey Rourke, and David Zayas are wasted and merely have what amounts to brief cameos among a cast of unknowns who do little to move the story along. Sadly, it wasn't the thriller or mind-f*&% film audiences would have hoped for. When the movie is over, it leaves you with a feeling as you just had a meal that wasn't satisfying. Some parts of the dialog were so bad that it made me wince. I had to back it up a bit to see if they actually said what I thought they said and it was even more painful to watch the second time.
I rented it from a Redbox DVD dispensing machine and I still want my dollar back.
