'7 Cases'
(Steven Berkoff, Dave Vincent Phillips, Paul Cooper, et al / DVD / R / 2015 / Revolver Entertainment)

Overview: After serving 15 years in jail for killing a family during a bank robbery getaway, Floyd and Mitchell are struggling to survive in the 21st century. When a new job opportunity surfaces, they reluctantly agree to finish this one last heist.

DVD Verdict: I'll be honest, any movie that contains both the acting "skills" of both Samantha Fox and Saffron Sprackling deserves to get a top rating in my book! Also, for those trying to recall the lead actors name, Steven Berkoff has had some riveting performances in classics such as the Bond movie, 'Octopussy,' and also 'A Clockwork Orange,' of course.

Still looking as timeless as ever, Berkoff is the best thing about this movie, one that as it unveils itself you (wrongly) get the feeling you've stumbled into some half=ass C-movie affair! It gets better, and quickly and soon has you invested in the lives of these "bad guys".

Basically, two retired bank robbers agree to one last job. A face from their past steals their proceeds and divides the cash into, well, yup, 7 Cases! Each one is left with someone they know. If they take a case, the victim dies. If they don't get there in time the victim dies! If they tamper with the traps ... they all die!

Their day goes from bad to worse as they encounter all the faces from their past and have to make some heartbreaking decisions. The aforementioned Berkoff plays the vindictive 'Lawson' who is playing with the protagonists. The action is solid regardless, but it's worth watching simply for that performance, trust me! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1:78.1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
