A police unit formed by four members is assigned to clean Sevilla about to celebrate the 1992 Universal Expo, 27 January 2013
Author: ma-cortes

Gripping and stirring picture inspired by actual deeds , in which there's a fine line between genre conventions and outright clichés . It is a crime thriller set in the lead-up to Expo 92 in Seville and the massive 'cleanup' of the streets that occurred leading up to the event . Unit 7 has a tough mission : to clean the most dangerous drug trafficking networks out of the city 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 cop aspiring to detective , and Rafael (Antonio De la Torre), a tough , relentless yet efficient cop along with Mateo (Joaquin Nuñez) . The four team members go after nasty delinquents , druggies and drug dealers . They track down dangerous smugglers but abusing the outlaws' civil rights. But UNIT 7s modus operandi is proceeded by violent methods . For them, anything goes . Rule-breaking Unit 7 strides grimly throughout slums and streets in pursuit the hoodlums , pimps , and junkies , including some exciting action scenes . As they gain ground in their mission, the two officers head in opposite directions . Angel who is a family man married to Elena (Imma Cuesta) takes path of ambition and police excesses while Rafael will begin to change as a result of his feelings for beautiful, enigmatic Lucia (Lucia Guerrero).

Formula thriller plenty of gritty action , crisply edition , tension, suspenseful and lots of violence . Interesting theme about a group of cops who carry out their objectives by whatever means , including violence , slipping outside the bounds of the law through their use of force , coercion , lies and half-truths ; however this issue has been previously treated in many other films , especially American ones . It has emotional or aesthetic resonance , even comforting in some ways, and partly because is just more attuned to nuanced variations on what might appear to be mere formula . This moving motion picture contains stylistic boldness and energy, its evocation of a particular time and place , Seville of 20+ years ago . Good acting by Antonio De La Torre as an arrogant , tough officer as well as sensitive man and Mario Casas as a youth but very violent cop . Appropriate and atmospheric musical score by Julio De Rosa . Colorful as well as dark cinematography by Alex Catalan . The latest from the director of ¨7 Virgins , El Traje , Factor Pilgrim¨ , this Grupo 7 or Unit 7 was well directed by Alberto Rodriguez. To an outsider, someone who's not a fan of a particular genre, anything that looks somewhat familiar can be grounds for dialing the cliché police , but I think results to be an entertaining film with several scenes that'll have you on the edge of your seat.
