Synopsis / Plot

Director Danny Pang’s Seven 2 One earned some buzz prior to release – though not for entirely positive reasons. Six members of the film’s young cast also appeared in Herman Yau’s Split Second Murders, which was shot after but released before Seven 2 One, with Seven’s producers claiming that Murders ripped off their film’s ending. In another controversy, the poster for Seven 2 One took its inspiration from the 2008 Hollywood thriller Vantage Point, with the image concept constituting a direct swipe. With all these accusations of “who copied who” flying around, does anyone remember that there’s an actual movie to discuss? Hopefully they do, because Seven 2 One is a slick, if unsubstantial thriller that consistently entertains.Seven 2 One’s Englishlanguage title refers to its seven separate stories, and how they ultimately converge into a single event: a convenience store robbery. After beginning, the film moves quickly to the robbery, where a masked thief demands the store’s cash from the counter girl (Chrissie Chau) before getting into a fight with a loan shark (William Chan). While the counter girl and two customers (Carolyn Chan and Wylie Chiu) witness the event, the loan shark is stabbed and the thief flees.
