The Thirteenth Floor,in my opinion,is an underrated SCI FI classic. It ranks with Blade Runner, The Matrix & Dark City as Science Fiction with a brain. Not only does it raise philosophical questions around technology , reality and existence it is also an entertaining noir-thriller with a few twists. Visually it is similar to the films mentioned above (dark neon-soaked landscapes) however the contrast between the modern and the 1930's adds another level to the films beauty. The film is well cast (Gretchen Mol looks stunning)and Craig Bierko carries the film well. It's one of those rare films that crosses quite a few genres - intelligent sci fi - murder mystery - film noir - thriller - love story.If you enjoyed Blade Runner and The Matrix you will certainly like this film.

Underrated Sc Fi ClassicReviewed bynatesh-singhVote: 9/10
I am a child of the 50's, and spent my preteen years feasting on allthe classic sifi gems, such as " The day the earth stood still","Forbidden Planet' etc. The 13th floor reminds me of those movies. Thismovie has been compared to the matrix, and that is unfair, Specialeffects are fine, but when they become the focal point of the movie, Ithink film suffers because of it. I liked the 13th floor because itdidn't get caught up in all that technology and reallied on a greatscript, and a wonderful ensemble cast. I would highly recommend thismovie to all, especially if you prefer the old "War of the Worlds" overthe new one.
The film, without an A-list cast, pulls off the plot well. The characters, although not really deep, are well structured, and the plot constructed with subtle complexity. The 1930s scenes are dramatically created. I found myself trying to guess the plot twists, but with little success as they unfolded. It was a good film, and richer in substance than the Matrix, and left you with a thought provoking afterthought about our own existence. Going into a movie, I hope to have avoided any prior information about the plot, and this one was well worth the purchase of the video. This could have made a great 3 hour movie to really develop the characters and the philosophical issues, however, it was reduced down to the 100 minutes time-span. I'd give it 8 out of 10.
