Watchable, but a little confusing
9 February 2013 | by sr-paulo-robaloSee all my reviews

I watched this movie yesterday. Not a bad movie at all.

After the first 10 minutes or so, it catches your attention. In fact, you'll be asking yourself 'what is going on?' throughout most of the movie. It is a little confusing, perhaps watching it a second or a third time would answer a few questions. But I think (and most viewers too) I won't spend more time with, it is worth watching once, not more.

Different characters repeat the same phrases in different occasions, I couldn't help but compare this to 'Cloud Atlas', only in a different (much lower) level. Perhaps this adds some interest to the story, I think this makes it a little more confusing. See for yourself.

Overall, '7 Lives' is not a masterpiece, far from it, but it is watchable - if you have 99 minutes to spend.
