7 Seconds (2005)
Romania / English
"Timing Is Everything.
"When an experienced thief accidentally makes off with a Van Gogh, his partner is kidnapped by gangsters in pursuit of the painting, forcing the criminal to hatch a rescue plan.
I'm surprised Wesley agreed to this.
Out of all the great films I've seen Wesley Snipes do, I decided to
take a shot on Seven seconds and hope for the best. I shouldn't of
bothered, I spent about 8 pounds sterling UK, so I guess I didn't do
that badly, but lets get down to the review.
The storyline was weak, the acting quite poor and the action, lacking.
When you compare 7 seconds to other great films Wesley has done, such
as most notably " Blade " or " Passenger 57 ", my personal favourite "
The Money Train " or " White men can't jump ", you have to wonder why
he'd enter into doing something in which plot and ending was so weak.
The main part of the film, was based around am attempted crime gone
wrong, something that all in all, made little to no real impact on the
film. You'd expect the main storyline to be what grabs you and if that
lacks, the action/acting to be at least half decent. This failed, the
ending especially, weak, the usage of British Actors, if I don't say so
myself was poor and if I were you, I'd stay away from this film,
because if you don't and have any personal thoughts of appreciation of
how great Wesley Snipes is and how he can make most films look amazing,
this may just damper that.
