      Neely Swanson Easy Reader (California) ... this stunning film deserves to be seen by a wide audience. Sep 18, 2017 Full Review Ron Wilkinson Monsters and Critics A little too slick to be a classic, "Unit 7" comes off more as a violent autograph session than a tragic cop drama. Rated: 7/10 May 24, 2012 Full Review Kimberly Gadette Doddle Finally. An action film that's more about the characters than the chase ... even though the chase is damn good, worthy of a Special Mention for cinematographer Alex Catalan. Rated: 9/10 Apr 30, 2012 Full Review Kent Turner Film-Forward.com It also features a major star turn by Mario Casas, a Spanish star who is bound to break out internationally. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 26, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Overall good movie with well developed characters. I should say that this movie kept me watching because of how realistic it was. Awesome action thriller script that worked. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member "Grupo 7" es una propuesta española que nos introduce a una unidad policíaca en Sevilla a finales de los ochentas, encargados de combatir el narcotráfico. Esta no es una tarea fácil y pronto se encontrarán formando parte de la misma corrupción que tratan de resolver. La cinta no es particularmente original (uno puede observar todos los clichés del género policíaco en ella) pero es entretenida, con buenas actuaciones y un interesante contexto social. No esta mal para entretener durante una tarde aburrida. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member in Spanish.Sub titles. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Unit 7 has a tough assignment: to clean the most dangerous drug trafficking networks out of Seville and bring an end to the corrosive power that has taken hold of the streets. A detail of four, the unit is led by Ángel (Mario Casas), a young officer aspiring to detective, and Rafael (Antonio de la Torre), a violent, arrogant yet efficient cop. But unit 7's modus operandi is slipping outside the bounds of the law through their use of violence, coercion, lies and half-truths. For them, anything goes. As they gain ground in their mission, the two officers head in opposite directions. Angel takes de path of ambition and police excesses while Rafael will begin to change as a result of his feelings for a young homeless girl... "Unit 7" ("Grupo 7") is a cliché driven and standard formula cop thriller. Despite the general fact that it´s an ok thriller/action movie set in Seville leading up to Expo 92, I couldn´t shake the fact that the makers of this film seems to have had "Copthrillers for dummies" in their lap when they made this, as "Unit 7" has such an A-Z standard structure with a mishmash of every cop thriller that has come out the US the past 30 years. Thus, I felt that "Unit 7" adds absolutely nothing new in the genre as everything in the movie have been seen and done before. I´m kind of surprised the film was nominated for 16 Goya Awards in 2012. Nah, this is really nothing special as I hoped for. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Intensa y aveces cruda, muy buena calidad sin nada que envidiar a Hollywood. Directo al grano como suelen ser los Españoles sin tanta cursileria jajajajaja. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member (***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Interesting and with a good cast.
