Great action film.
22 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film 4 times or so in the last year, and I have to say it is excellent still. The camera work, the music score, the acting, the direction, and the various plots within the main story of detectives trying to clean up the drug traffic in Seville,Spain, make 90 something minutes of film seem like 25. Although I do think the film is a little short, maybe that is what helps make it so good.

This movie reminds me of "The French Connection" of the early 70s. The basic premise of police combating drug traffic was the same, but in that one only 1 or 2 characters were developed. In many ways I think "Grupo 7" is better as the director brings at least several interesting characters to the forefront.

"Grupo 7" is a great film to show to college level Spanish students, as the subtitles are very easy to read, and the film holds their interest very well. It is available on DVD, region 1(USA DVD players and computers).
