The Thirteenth Floor...should I buy it?

I know it's not in the league of the Matrix, but I was wondering if this is a good disc to pick up. It's only $9.44 at Target. I read some reviews but I want your guys opinion, thanks!

it's been a while since I've seen it, but I did enjoy it a lot. For that price I would definitely pick it up if I didn't have it already.

It's not in the league of The Matrix only in terms of the size of its budget. In terms of its story, it is at least as good, maybe better. Pick it up, especially at that price.

The Thirteenth floor is an excellent movie and at that price you have to buy it. I really like the scenes of 1930's LosAngeles in the movie. I originally saw the movie on HBO a couple years ago. A few months ago I decided to buy the movie through Columbia House.

I haven't seen it............But for the price you can't go wrong. It would cost you more to go to a movie you haven't seen before.

That's a good price, so you might as well pick it up. Even though I didn't care for it (don't flame me, since I'm the minority on this one).

I really liked this movie. At first I enjoyed it more than the Matrix, but the replay value is not nearly as strong as the Matrix. You'll really like it the first time you see it. If I wasn't committed to getting the new Rambo set for $40-50, I'd spend $10 and get it too.

I saw it theatres when I snuck in to see it before Entrapment and honestly I couldn't tell you which one was worse.

"I know it's not in the league of the Matrix"

You're right! It's much better than The Matrix, although not as good as Dark City!

I'm gonna have to join Geofferson on this one. This movie stank. There are worse ways to spend $10 though.

I thought this was a good movie. I was pleasantly suprised the first time I saw it and for that price I would get it (if I did not have it already).
