The Thirteenth Floor is a 1999 science fiction thriller directed by Josef Rusnak. The film follows Douglas Hall (Craig Bierko), an up-and-coming computer scientist who works for famed multi-billionaire entrepreneur Hannon Fuller (Armin Mueller-Stahl). Fuller and Hall are working on a full-blown computer simulation of 1937 Los Angeles when, just prior to testing the system, Fuller is murdered. Hall is suspected of the crime. Unfortunately, Hall has no recollection of where he was the evening Fuller was murdered. All he has is a bloody shirt and a mysterious letter left to him by Fuller in the virtual world of 1937 Los Angeles. During his police interrogation, Hall meets Jane Fuller (Gretchen Mol), Hannon Fuller's estranged daughter. Attracted to one another, the two soon fall into a romance. Hall soon learns that Jane is intent on closing down the 1937 Los Angeles simulation. Confused, Hall ventures deep into the simulation in search of an explanation. What he finds will change his life forever.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Comes too late, far surpassed by similar and more visually stunning devices in "The Matrix," and even by the mind-bending realities of "eXistenZ."

    The New York Times Lawrence Van Gelder

    Repackaged as cyberthriller, the old time-travel adventure returns in this stylish but overplotted and ultimately illogical combination of science fiction, mystery and romance.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    For all the soaring visual splendor of its past, present and future, it's hobbled by a murky plot that proves to be not all that original once it starts unraveling.
