Critic Reviews of "13 Minutes"Hollywood ReporterJuly 22, 2015
The movie is well acted and mostly absorbing, but it spells out everything so painstakingly that there's zero room for subtext.VarietyJuly 22, 2015
As with countless films set in the period, the absence of subtlety combined with predictable dollops of sentimentalism once again trivialize events in the name of making them understandable.Time OutJuly 13, 2015
An important story, of course, but only mildly engaging as cinema.Movie NationFebruary 06, 2017
Straightforward and fortuitously timed bio-drama of a nearly forgotten German who tried to assassinate his country's fascist dictator at the beginning of World War II.South China Morning PostDecember 04, 2016
As a testament to a forgotten wartime hero, it's a credible, well-crafted portrait.Cinema em CenaNovember 05, 2016
The movie is an effective and frightening study of how a country can collapse morally and socially without its citizens realizing what is happening. [Full review in Portuguese.]New Zealand HeraldMay 04, 2016
History robs the film of suspense potential, of course... What remains reads like a noble, but slightly worthy, attempt to disinter the reputation of a man largely forgotten in Germany until the publication of a 1999 biography.The PlaylistApril 17, 2016
13 Minutes is an elegant, expensive-looking, respectful history lesson that finds just enough interesting texture ... to save it from becoming dryLittle White LiesMarch 17, 2016
As a first step back into polite cinematic society after a long run of duffers, Hirschbiegel's film has a certain value to it.The Film StageFebruary 23, 2016
13 Minutes presents a redundant historical "what if" that leaves itself open to charges of relativization.Rip It UpJanuary 01, 2016
Jumping around in time just a shade too much in the midsection, Hirschbiegel's film nevertheless proves a compelling historical drama.Daily Telegraph (Australia)December 21, 2015
The narrative keeps up the intrigue, with Elser's eventual fate being not quite as clear-cut as you might expect.
