A typically tacky thriller from Merton Park Studios, latter-day home of the British B movie. But the script by sci-fi novelist Charles Eric Maine (later published as The Isotope Man) is quite ingenious, hingeing on a nuclear physicist (Arne) working on a secret project who suffers seven seconds of clinical death when attacked by saboteurs, and thereafter lives seven vital seconds ahead of the plot. Briskly competent direction helps it along nicely, even though the time-slip notion gets rather muffled by routine spy larks involving the inevitable impersonation by a double.
