SEVEN is about a team of special agents comprised of seven orphans who take
on the roughest assignments that the regular cops can't handle. They are sent
on a mission to retrieve stolen bank cards and find out that they are not the
only ones after them.
The overall picture is OK. The very first few scenes have occasional flashes
of color in the print. This happens during the beginning of the movie when the
Wonder Seven are apprehending some criminals while riding dirt bikes. It happens
occasionally but isn't too distracting. Most of the rest of the film looks fine
except for one scene that looks a little washed out. It looks like the lens
was dirty when it was filmed. These imperfections are due to the source print
that was used.
DVD has a mono Dolby soundtrack. All the sounds were mixed well and the vocals
were never drowned out by the special effects. It is much better than the 5.1
remixes of some other titles.
I watched the movie in Cantonese with the English subtitles.
The subtitles were in sync although there were some spelling errors at time
that were a little funny.
The movie contained a trailer for WONDER SEVEN as well trailers
for HEROIC TRIO, THE EXECUTIONERS, and YES, MADAM.
is a fairly good movie. There are a lot of action scenes and the movie moves
quickly along. The plot can be a little confusing at times but I am not sure
if that's because of the subtitles or not. To be honest, the movie sounds
like a great premise for a television show. This isn't the greatest movie
ever made, but it was definitely entertaining. If you are looking for a movie
that has a lot of action and doesn't take itself too seriously, you will like
