7 SECONDS

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 96 minutes, Previews

STUDIO: SPHE

RELEASE DATE: 6-28-2005

ANALYSIS: Yep, Wesley Snipes career seems to be taking a dive. 7 SECONDS marks his second direct to DVD title with another one coming in September. He is joining the ranks of other actors who are now stuck in the direct to video action genre like Steven Seagal and Jean Claude Van Damme. If you really care to read further, Wesley plays disgraced ex-Delta Force Captain Jack Tolliver who has this perfect heist set up to rob all these armored cars in Romania and it doesn't quite go right because someone has set him up. Two of his crew end up being taken prisoner by the big cartoonish Russian gangster bad guy (who has a nervous shake) and he wants the priceless Van Gogh painting that Tolliver still has from the heist. Tolliver's ally (or someone looking to take him down) is sexy military police Sgt. Andre who seems to be smarter than the rest of the police and gets out of tight jams quite easily. You have some fight scenes ruined by quick cut editing and a couple of car chases to bookend 7 SECONDS. Also if you look too closely, many plot holes are easily uncovered.  7 SECONDS is a B movie that is entertaining fluff that can be watched once and forgotten about soon after (maybe a better script and more action would have helped it out).  My advice to Wesley is find better movies and parts or find a TV series to revive his career.

VIDEO: 1.85:1 (Anamorphic)

Image detail is fine. Colors, skin tones, and blacks look all good. It is an OK transfer.

AUDIO: English 5.1 DD

Subtitles: English

Dialogue is easy to hear. Music and sound effects pack a punch as they are very loud.

PREVIEWS: FULL THROTTLE, LAYER CAKE (Anamorphic), RESCUE ME, and XXX Director's Cut

FINAL ANALYSIS: Rent 7 SECONDS. 7 SECONDS is an entertaining way to waste 96 minutes, but it could have been much more.
