7 Seconds (2005)

Ex-Delta Force dude Jack Tuliver has become a master thief (it’s the law or something) and his latest target is a $20 million casino cash heist but it’s complicated by the presence of a $65 million Van Gogh in the loot meaning the stakes are even bigger than he thought. Because, you know, no-one cares about $20 million in cash.

3/10

It’s vaguely exciting and never loses the interest but star Wesley Snipes is probably the weakest link in the movie as he disdainfully trudges his way through his lines and action. His half-heartedness (look at his face on the DVD cover) is made more obvious because he occasionally remembers he is actually a highly capable actor but his talent only comes through in snippets. Co-star Tamzin Outhwaite is much more interesting on-screen and strides around with rather more purpose and charisma until she is sidelined for Snipes’ action climax. Outhwaite’s the reason I rented and she is fine but is capable of being great in something much better.

This movie contains strong adult dialogue, sexual swear words and extreme and graphic violence, extremely unpleasant scenes and sex scene, female nudity.

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.
