Editorial Reviews

Seven-ups are those criminals due to serve at least that number of year in jail -- if they get caught. Roy Scheider is a cop who catches them.

Format: VHS Tape
Cult crime film, that's virtually unknown by many film fans, however this gritty 1973 crime thriller is still edgy and captivating viewing over thirty years later, and effectively captures the tense and often violent relations between the NYC detectives and their hoodlum prey. The term "seven ups" was actually coined in the late 1960's in relation to a special squad of detectives operating in New York City who were pursuing high profile felons convictable of prison terms of seven years or more.

Ex-NYC detective Sonny Grosso ( the real life "Cloudy" of "The French Connection" fame ) penned the story for "The Seven Ups" based upon some of his personal experiences and observations in the NYC police department. A steely and youthful Roy Scheider is the lead actor portraying uncompromising detective "Buddy Manucci". Scheider was at that time just breaking through to mainstream cinema, and had recently gained high praise from critics for his role as Gene Hackman's cop buddy in the sensational "The French Connection"...plus, Scheider would soon become a familiar face as "Chief Brody" in 1975's biggest blockbuster "Jaws". Fellow actor from "The French Connection", Tony Lo Bianco appears in "The Seven Ups" as an oily, two faced mob undertaker, manipulating both his criminal cohorts and his friend Buddy via the use of sensitive information on the mob's business dealings. The plot of the film primarily centres around the double crossing activities of Vito ( Lo Bianco ) as he uses his child hood friend Buddy ( Scheider ) to identify potential mob identities that Vito's crooked partners can kidnap and hold for an exhorbitant ransom. Both the cops and the mob are rattled as they struggle to identify the mole betraying the fingered mob bosses for hefty ransom's.

Not a review, but a commentary on filming locations, all in New York, most in the Bronx. The funeral parlor scene (at Hoffman St & E184 St across from St Barnabas Hospital) features footage of the Third Ave El train tracks, demolished soon afterwards. The funeral procession follows along Pelham Pkwy past the White Plains Rd train station. Other Bronx landmarks seen are the Valentine Theater on Fordham Rd, the HighBridge (that supplied drinking water from upstate through the Old Croton Aqueduct over the Harlem River into Manhattan), the Arthur Ave Market, the Botanical Gardens Conservatory, and Tracy Towers on Mosholu Pkwy. The shootout at the end takes place on the Amtrak rails between Co-Op City and Pelham Bay Park. The car chase starts on Manhattan's West Side and (despite driving over the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey) ends with the crash on the Taconic Pkwy in Westchester County. Locations seem to have been chosen for their gritty looks, and the action is rife with geographic incongruity, with rather distant areas represented as being adjacent.

It remains in the shadow of its famous predecessor, 'The French Connection,' but 'The Seven Ups' is required viewing if you're in the mood for a no-nonsense, unglorified NYC police story. There's an incredible end to the car chase, the film's trademark, but watch it for the straightforward acting, jolting plot twists, and unvarnished picture of workaday New York in the '70s. The music lends an eerie mood, and there's plenty of small touches of realism. My favorite is a grim view of a muddy New Jersey wasteland--trains of oblivious commuters roar by the cops and villains on foot. 'The Seven Ups' is a rare breed--it looks like it could have happened the way it was filmed. Unspectacular but rewarding.

Fans of movies like "The French Connection", "Bullitt", "Serpico", and any other great Cop action flicks should definitely enjoy this one. Keep in mind this was made long before "Die Hard" and "Lethal Weapon" came out so they didn't have the special effects, but they did have some incredible stunt people. The casting in this movie was exceptional. The actors do a wonferful job of making you feel they are the person they are portraying. The director did a great job too, and the sets will make you think you are in the heart of the city. I am a fan of Roy Scheider myself, and I think this is one of the best movies he ever made. Most people know Roy Scheider from his part as the main character Martin Brody, the Amity police chief, in the first two "Jaws" movies. "The Seven-Ups" probably has the second best car chase scene you will see in a movie. Like the other top movies I listed they took stock cars you would see on the street and beefed up the suspensions and engines.

I personally rate "Bullitt" first, "French Connection" third, "Ronin" fourth, "Transporter" fifth, and "The Driver" sixth. Second in this group is exceptionally good. The reason I rate Bullitt higher is it was the original greatest car chase, Steve McQueen not only drove the Mustang he did the motorcycle stunt, hotter cars, and the hilly streets of San Francisco are more challenging than New York. I only mention this because someone didn't think second was good enough even though you have most the same people from Bullitt creating this chase scene and they even use the Bullitt soundtrack. The Seven-ups story is about a group of undercover cops taking on the toughest cases against the hardest criminals. You can tell that a great deal is borrowed from real life crime fighting.
