Had Thirteen on the PS2, thought it was a good game, might give the film a watch.

Dude, I loved XIII on my PS2. Those graphics and comic book style game play was awesome.

I had this game on the original Xbox. It's a shame how quickly the online community died for it though. I used to play it constantly. Loved the style, story, and multiplayer.

Lets hope for another game for the 360!

As for the movie, I didn't even hear about this. I'll definitely have to check it out. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

It's a actually a TV mini series, and being a fan of the game, I found it to be very poor. I'm not a huge Val Kilmer fan so that put me off a little. I wouldn't waste your time if you like the game.

Running Time : October 6, 2008 October 13, 2008

The terrible image:


Man, this looks like a huge pile of dogshit. Nevermind, I will not be checking it out.

It's a mini-series. Not a movie. He failed to mention that in the original post.

It's only 2 parts long and it's not awful, but it is slow-paced. Val Kilmer looks/is fat and cannot act and Stephen Dorf is just moody looking throughout (at least he tries to act).

Otherwise it ain't too bad really... I think it's worth a watch as it's a decent homage to the game/comic.
