Enjoyed 7Lives
27 October 2011 | by knitflickSee all my reviews

Hi, I really enjoyed 7Lives. Looks great, not like a low budget, 1st film. Loved the cast. I am only familiar with Danny Dyer, Kate Ashfield, and Martin Compston. I have seen the Doctor before but I can't place him just yet (I'll check IMDb). All of the other actors were good. I liked the story because it was smart and I couldn't predict what was going to happen, how refreshing. Some movies are unpredictable because the story doesn't make sense or too convoluted but that wasn't the case in this film.

I am disappointed that the DVD didn't have a director's audio commentary. I buy/rent dvds of movies I really like and I learn so much from the commentary. Especially how much problem solving is involved in film-making: changing plans due to budget constraints, actors dropping out, limited time to shoot scenes, not being able to use certain equipment, etc.

My compliments to you and the cast and crew. I am looking forward to your future work.
