7 Seconds is a 2005 action thriller movie that stars Wesley Snipes, Tamzin Outhwaite, Deobia Oparei, and Georgina Rylance. The movie follows a group of thieves who rob an armored car and steal tens of millions of dollars in diamonds. However, their escape plan hits a snag when they accidentally kill a police officer and one of their own group members.

The movie is set in an Eastern European city and opens with the thieves, led by Jack Tuliver (Wesley Snipes), executing a plan to rob the diamonds. After they steal the precious gems, they make their getaway in a van. However, during the escape, they hit a police officer and are forced to take him hostage. They plan on using him as a bargaining chip to get past the police checkpoints.

As they make their way through the city, they realize that their plan isn't foolproof, and they are being chased by the police. They decide to hide in an abandoned building and wait for the heat to die down. However, that's when things go from bad to worse. They discover that the diamonds they stole are fake and worth nothing, and they also realize that the police are not the only people chasing them.

In the meantime, a team of corrupt Russian cops, led by Brims (Deobia Oparei), is also after the diamonds. Brims and his team use brutal tactics to extract information about the diamonds from suspects, making them a formidable enemy to the thieves.

The thieves find themselves in a race against time to figure out how to get out of the city alive while Brims and his team close in on them. To add to their problems, Jack's girlfriend, Suza (Tamzin Outhwaite), is kidnapped by Brims, and they use her as leverage to get the diamonds.

The movie follows Jack and his team as they try to navigate the city, evade the police and Brims' team, and find a way to get out with their lives and the diamonds. The stakes are high, and the clock is ticking.

The movie has plenty of action sequences, including shootouts, car chases, and hand-to-hand combat. However, it also has a decent plot that keeps viewers engaged throughout the movie. The movie is not just about the action; it also explores themes of betrayal, loyalty, and the human cost of crime.

Wesley Snipes delivers a solid performance as Jack Tuliver, the leader of the thieves. He portrays Jack as a cool, calm, and collected criminal who always has a backup plan. Tamzin Outhwaite also gives an impressive performance as Jack's girlfriend, Suza. She is not just a damsel in distress but plays an active role in the movie's plot.

Deobia Oparei as Brims is also noteworthy. He plays the role of a ruthless cop with conviction and brings a sense of danger to the character.

Overall, 7 Seconds is an enjoyable action thriller movie that keeps viewers engaged with its plot and action sequences. It's not a masterpiece by any means, but it is worth watching if you're a fan of the genre. The movie is shot well, has good acting, and a decent plot that keeps you guessing until the end.

7 Seconds is a 2005 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 41 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.8.
