- Andrew O'Hehir,, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Rotten: Thirteenth Floor tries to be complex but is merely confusing.

- Barbara Shulgasser, Chicago Tribune, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Rotten: This is fascinating stuff and would be more so if the actors brought more energy to it.

The Thirteenth Floor, what was I thinking when I watched this Movie at first? There is really no point in the Movie. This is weird.

The Thirteenth Floor is a very different plot. A man is found dead whom created this virtual world that transports people back to the 1930's. The problem is there becomes different worlds and the people change throughout...a friend in one might be an enemy in another...very good twist and turns.

Cool murder-mystery twisted reality cinema-noir thriller. The twists were a bit confusing at times, but it had a nice payoff.
