Wesley Snipes is a whore.

In the years before Nu Image would start handing out several million-dollar paychecks for some of their productions, Hollywood stars stayed in Hollywood. Unless they were doing a favor for a friend, stars did not cross over into direct-to-video cinema. Things are different these days, and Wesley Snipes is embracing the change more than anyone.

Despite the man still being able to get one nice paycheck a year for a theatrical film, unlike Van Damme and Seagal who are stuck here for life, Snipes is going full force into the video market. Likely making $6 million a film, Snipes’ 7 Seconds is being released only seven months after his last, Unstoppable.

It’s another double cross plot, as robber Jack Tuliver (Snipes) and his crew are ambushed by a group of criminals while performing a dangerous heist. At the end of the confrontation, a cop is dead, his girlfriend has been kidnapped, he’s got a locked case containing an incredibly valuable painting, and a NATO military cop with a crushed car is secretly contacting Tulliver. To put it lightly, there’s a lot that needs to be resolved.

7 Seconds suffers quite a bit from Simon Fellows’ directing. It just does not work, as he’s not in anyway an action director. There are a few scenes that make you doubt the crew’s competency as well, with a shot of a shattered glass window looking horrendous. Martin Wheeler’s script isn’t up to par either, with Snipes getting in familiar situations in familiar ways.

Unstoppable was much better than 7 Seconds. While it was no doubt goofy and stupid, it at least delivered some great action with a more compelling plot.

DVD: Barebones.
