**** WARNING: Big Fat Spoilers Ahead! ****

After the opening few minutes I thought The Last Seven would be something truly special. Sure, the deserted post-apocalyptic London backdrop owed more than a little to 28 Days Later, but this film seemed to be developing a creepy atmosphere all of its own. That is, until the rather heavy-handed direction and laboured script threatened to swamp things. The characters were all rather cliché'd, from the salt-of-the Earth squaddie geezer, the little girl lost, the reluctant captain, the mysterious foreign girl, the religious nutter, the terminally hammy posh guy and our podgy and bewildered hero. Oh and the least said about Danny Dyer as the most laboured metaphor for the Angel of Death ever seen, the better.

OK, onto the plot. So I'm sure most of us will have surmised that this is no dirty bomb aftermath and something supernatural is going on (well London can be purgatory at times, n'est-ce pas?) and things seem to fall into place with the flashbacks revealing that Isaac (Ronan Vibert of Borgias fame) turned suicide-bomber to revenge a government cover-up over the bodged rescue attempt of his hostage daughter. So far so good and it's all reasonably compelling and intriguing for most of the film, but wtf did that ending mean? Are they all in limbo? Why did only Chloe survive? (Or did she?). Sorry, but that Triangle-like time loop tacked on to the end just struck me as a twist too far and which made no sense whatsoever.

At least posh but sinister government honcho Henry (John Mawson) gets to utter the great one-liner "A simple allons-y would have sufficed".

As for the Blu-ray presentation, well it's not that great. Picture quality is generally grainy and little appreciable use is made of surround sound.

O.k. this is my review so be gentle. I have read some of the bad reviews on here and to be honest I can see where they are coming from. The film is never going to be nominated for oscars. However, what it does have is a pretty good plot line, which moves along at a reasonable pace after a slow start. The characters that you are meant to feel sympathy with you do and vice versa. I kept watching just because I wanted to know what was going on and why. As I say no oscar winner but I did enjoy it. I would say the review that amazon give is somewhat misleading as to the actual storyline though. Also not really sure that the character Danny Dyer plays could not have been played by an unknown equally well.

It starts off promising, continues interesting, but as the end approaches, it goes downhill precipitately and falls right off the edge, into complete, meaningless piffle. An awful mishmash of a film that makes no sense. I don't know what the director was drinking and/or smoking at the time, but he should stop it at once.

The Last Seven is a 2010 low-budget, seemingly post-apocalyptic British horror helmed by Imran Naqvi and starring Tamer Hassan and the perenially awful Danny Dyer. I don't want to ruin it for you, after all, this is a review and not a spoilerfest! The Last Seven is very much a character-driven flick punctuated with moments of fairly graphic horror.

Initially, I had suspected that I was going to be watching some kind of bastard offspring of 28 Days Later and any generic serial killer flick. This was most definitely not the case. The Last Seven, despite its reported budget of 1.2 million, does not feel like a low-budget movie. Centring on and developing the seven characters of the title among the abandoned streets of London allows the viewer to become more immersed in the story than your average horror flick and I felt that the mechanics behind the plot resembled that of the ever-popular An Inspector Calls.

Tamer Hassan is convincing as military man Sgt Jack Mason and I am of the opinion that it will only be a matter of time before this man moves on to much bigger and better things. Strong as the rest of the cast are, they are effectively dwarfed by Hassan's turn as Mason. In fairness to the remaining six of the seven of the title, they all put in solid performances as amnesiac survivors, trying to piece together what has happened to them and make sense of the situation they find themselves in.

The Last Seven fits nicely into its 84 minute running time and at no point does it feel laboured or conversely, rushed. There is a lack of soundtrack generally but I would suggest that this simply adds to the overall feel of the movie and the bleak tone set from the beginning.

so... arh.... what can say about this one... I was gripped by the
cinema photography.... the shots of a deserted London, are
amazing... It's like a 1980s arty-farty student film.... but a good student
movie... it is a strange one this... but it all makes sense at the end...

Danny Dryer, is hardly in it... but has an important role... I don't
want to give the plot away... because it is quite a good idea...
This is a movie, you want to watch late at night, as it is slow paced.
I could tell you it's bad points, but, I enjoyed the film too much for that.
Look... this movie isn't as bad, as most British films like this... but I have
to have a moan about the "so-called" British Film Industry... this
movie has over 30 PRODUCERS! 30! In one capacity or another... and.
32 PRODUCTION ASSISTANTS! ... 32! I counted them... that is 32
people doing what?... working for free that's what... a film is never
gonna make money, with 30 producers...
