Blu-ray Release: The Seven-Ups

Blu-ray Release Date: March 20, 2018
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

In the mode of The French Connection, the crime thriller The Seven-Ups (1973) is directed by the former film’s producer, Philip D’Antoni, and stars Roy Scheider (All That Jazz) as the leader of a crack squad of NYPD detectives bent on busting culprits whose offenses guarantee seven years or up in prison.  In this sleazy world, the cops are nearly as out of line as the crooks, a dangerous bunch of miscreants connected to the mob.

Featuring one of the most famous cinematic car chases ever, designed by the great Bill Hickman (The French Connection, Bullitt), The Seven-Ups stands up as a solid, Seventies cop flick.
