5.0 out of 5 stars 70's scenario. 27 Jun 2008
There are a few overlooked movies from the 70s. This is one. Produced by the same producer behind french connection, this has some of the same structure, for example a great car chase. The 70s atmosphere, Roy Scheiders part, the clothing, the setting in the streets of new york & generally the feeling that they don't make movies like this anymore, gives this movie an edge. Great stuff in my humble opinion. If you like this, checkout french connection 1 +2 & bullitt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent French Connection follow-up 22 July 2010
A taut and uncompromising crime thriller with Roy Scheider in the lead role as tough NYC cop Buddy Manucci who leads a small unit of officers known as The Seven-Ups because they can put away villains for seven years or over. However, their integrity is brought into doubt when they are accused of robbing the city's Mafiosi, so Manucci and his buddies use strong-arm tactics to hunt down the real culprits. There are some very powerful scenes such as Manucci "interrogating" an injured mobster inside a hospital and him and his partners breaking into another gangster's house. Special mention must also go to Richard Lynch and stunt driver Bill Hickman as the two main bad guys Moon and Bo. Watch out for Stallone regular Joe Spinell, too.

Of course, this has a fantastic car chase and an exciting final showdown. All in all, this is an intensely satisfying cross between Dirty Harry and The French Connection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty 70s Cop Film, with a great car chase! 6 July 2011
By A. McGrath TOP 1000 REVIEWER
So what makes this film five stars? In a nutshell, 'the ten minute car chase!'. The cars involved are a 73 Pontiac Grand Ville and a 73 Pontiac Ventura Sprint, they both look great as they speed through Uptown New York across the GWB and into the beyond. The bonus is that you'll see all the other period vehicles, including the Plymouth Fury police cars (tricolour livery) and if you look carefully a Hillman Hunter (Sunbeam Vogue/Arrow?) sneaks in! It's certainly as good as the chases in 'Bullitt ', 'The French Connection', 'Ronin', 'Robbery', and any other film you care to mention, with two exceptions 1. 'Dirty Mary Crazy Larry' and 2. The Blues Brothers [DVD] [1980], which surely must be the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Seven Ups german Blu -Ray 22 Nov 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Let's review the blu ray the disc is viewable in german and english language.
The blu ray transfer is sharp and clear but their is heavy grain present throughout the film.

Sound wise the disc is dts-hd master audio 2.0.

If you are a fan of bullitt and the french connection this film won't disapoint you.

This movie has a great car chase scene which fans of 70's cinema won't want to miss.

The disc is region b-locked so won't play outside of europe unless you own a multi-region blu-ray player.

The Seven Ups is a great movie. Think New York, think gritty and downbeat, think cops, think the mob, add a great script wonderful actors and a believable plot and you have the Seven Ups.

Roy Scheider is just.... well delicious in this film.
Its great that though the movie is filmed in New York City we don't see any tourist traps, instead we see the side of the city that the tourist board don't want you to see. Ok its more cleaned up now but you get my drift.

This is great entertainment and an essential purchase if you like these types of films.

And you're jaw will literaly hit the floor at the 10 minute car chase, its so good.

Great movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Seven Ups 28 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With elements of the French Connection and Bullitt films, the Seven Ups is a good standalone product of its own.

Bill Medley, the stunt driver from the Bullitt car chase has a speaking role in this film, Roy Scheider is a good lead too. The real location scenes from New York are really worth looking at, some great places, from grimy back streets to swanky apartments.

There is some violence but this is a high power early 1970's film and the Police are dealing with the top hard criminals here, the criminals have no fear about killing people. Keep an eye out for Ken Kercheval, later to star in Dallas in a role in the film.

An enjoyable film and you'll take to it if you're into Police dramas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you like a good car chase? 11 Jun 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an under rated car chase movie, great performances from the cast and cars. Possibly the greatest car chase movie in film history and it stars Roy Scheider, it's a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Kidnap Connection 18 Feb 2014
Obsessed by bringing down the city's top faces of the criminal fraternity, Scheider's cop is oblivious of an unorthodox kidnapping scam involving members of the underworld, that is until it results in the death of one of his own elite '7up' team.
His superiors believing that the '7ups' being potentially responsible for the crimes, remove the team from service, pending an enquiry. Leaving Scheider and his outfit no option but to go outside the law in order to get themselves revenge...

I enjoyed this little Saturday night special. The cast is really great, including everyone from the (always excellent) support cast, like Spinell and Lo Bianco, right through to the top name in Scheider. Not to mention of course Lynch and Hickman playing the bad guys. The story from Grosso (one of the original officers in the actual French Connection case) is different, and keeps you interested, with a sound focus on the seedier side of crime and punishment, with strong dialogue to boot. Excelling itself in both the atmosphere it creates and it's tense action set pieces, the highlight of which being a fantastic edge of the seat car chase.
Ultimately given it's cast, vibe and score, one will inevitably draw conclusions to The French Connection, to which this is undoubtedly a poor man's version of. But I don't say that lightly, in fact I say that with the utmost respect for both films, and anyone who is a fan of 1970s crime thrillers really needs to see this underrated entry.

The dvd print is widescreen and of a good standard.
