A group of travelers (Kilmer among them) are stranded in a creepy house with a creepy host(Rhames)when a tornado watch forces them off the road. Then the killing starts. Well, I suppose you could say the killing starts. We don't SEE one of the earliest killings and its ALL played off screen (perhaps they ran into issues with how the scene was shot). In films like this it's all about how creative the murder sequences are since that's kind of the purpose of movie.
"7 Below" just meanders from scene-to-scene without much action and what little character development there is in the film is mostly cliched.
Kilmer's character of Bill dies early on perhaps he had the biggest paycheck or a more important gig waiting. Rhames remains the one delight in the film particularly with a clever intentional reference to "Top Gun" involving a scene with Kilmer. Although Rhames KNOWS he's in an awful movie he manages to have fun with his role as Jack.
The transfer looks pretty decent and audio although not outstanding had a decent mix as well.
Special features are limited to a trailer.
I'd avoid this one as there are dozens of better horror flicks out there. Kilmer is slumming and although Vhames has fun with his role, it's not enough to save this flick. Even for a buck this seemed too expensive. "7 Below" reminds us that most flicks that end up going straight to video do so for a very good reason--they just aren't very good.
There is immediate tension between Kilmer and Rhames as it becomes a battle to see who can act the most ostentatious, contrary, and bizarre. As the 100 year storm rages on, the events of the past unfold in the present.
The problem with this film is that it tries so hard to be clever, it isn't. Ving Rhames with his fedora, time piece, and cigar love making creates a lousy character as we see him as "Tony Todd light." Kilmer, likewise had a bad role, one where acting was optional. Overall the characters were fairly drab which made for a dull feature.
F-bomb, opening sex and nudity (Tia Sage)
7 Below is a pathetic failure on all fronts. The script, the acting, the production, the directing, the sound, the lighting, and on and on. I don't even know what a gaffer does, but I would bet my life that the gaffer screwed up royally too.
There's not one thing right with this. Val Kilmer, who is a good actor, can't even steal a scene from the cadavers he's sharing the screen with. But how could he with a script like this? He has nothing to say. None of them do. Their dialogue is written as merely a thing that moves the plot along. Not for one moment are you able to suspend your disbelief and believe that these are real people reacting to real things in real time.
If the acting was good, you might tolerate the unorignal and hackneyed script. If the script was good, you might forgive the lazy, wooden performances. If the director was any good, he might have been able to make this mess somewhat interesting. But no. No one comes and saves the day here. It's doomed. It's like a row of dominoes where each one is placed three yards apart. It never has a chance.
This thing is treading water right out of the gate. The viewer can either walk away, or watch it slowly and painfully drown to death.
I wish I had just walked away.
