Dealing with Dark, underexposed footage from Canon 7D in Final Cut or After Effects

So I've got some dark HD footage that was shot with a Canon 7D that I'm stuck working with and I need to pull out the image. I can bring out the images alright using the Levels Filter in Final Cut but its got a lot of video noise etc.

Does anybody have any recommended filter techniques etc? I know there's not that much you can really do but it's a fairly common problem and I'd be interested in any advice.

Thanks.

How about the under-utilized "Smack the DP Upside the Head -'Cause What Was He Thinking?!" filter?

A great filter! Could hurt a bit, if you're your own dp ;)
