Seven Crosses is a 2008 independent action-thriller film directed by Peter Stylianou and starring Suzanne Kendall, Paul Cassidy, and Jon-Paul Gates. The film tells the story of a heiress who is kidnapped by a group of mercenaries in order to extort her immense wealth from her father. The film primarily revolves around her father's attempt to retrieve her safely, as well as the various obstacles he faces in order to do so.

The premise of the film is relatively straightforward: after the wealthy heiress is kidnapped, her father is left to deal with a group of mercenaries who are determined to leverage her father's wealth for their own gain. The father, played by Paul Cassidy, is an ex-military man who uses his training to fight back against the kidnappers and retrieve his daughter, played by Suzanne Kendall. Part of the intrigue of the film comes from the fact that the father is not only forced to grapple with the kidnappers themselves, but also with the ethical quandaries that arise as a result of his daughter's abduction. He must decide whether or not to pay the ransom or to take action against the kidnappers, knowing that either decision could have lasting consequences for his family.

The film's central conflict is further complicated by the addition of Jon-Paul Gates' character, who plays a detective tasked with investigating the kidnapping. His investigation brings to light a number of unsavory details about the kidnappers and the wealthy family at the center of the story, adding an additional layer of tension to an already fraught situation. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the stakes are much higher than they initially seemed, and that the father's efforts to save his daughter may come at a much greater cost than he ever anticipated.

One of the strengths of Seven Crosses is its ability to balance action-packed sequences with moments of genuine emotional weight. The film's plot is propelled by both the high-stakes action scenes and the nuanced character motivations that drive them. Kendall and Cassidy in particular deliver standout performances, bringing a depth and complexity to their respective characters that helps to elevate the film beyond the trappings of a typical action movie.

Though Seven Crosses is not without its flaws, it succeeds in delivering a tense and entertaining story that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Stylianou's direction is strong throughout, and he manages to dovetail the various plot threads into a satisfying conclusion that will leave audiences satisfied. While the film may not reinvent the wheel when it comes to the action-thriller genre, it is a well-executed and enjoyable entry into the canon that is well worth checking out for fans of the genre.

Seven Crosses is a 2014 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.9.
