Unit 7 delivers a good realistic cop-thriller
16 July 2013 | by OJTSee all my reviews

In Unit 7, we get an exciting and realistically told police-thriller about a narc police unit made to fight drug traffic in the mid to late eighties, when Sevilla is preparing to host the World exhibition, Expo 1992. Unit 7 is the best group in years, getting big results. We meet a young cop, which clashes with an older, more experienced one.

The young cop Angel, played by Mario Casas seems to be the main person here, though he plays against some more experienced Spanish actors. They all do a great job. Casas is charming and believable as a young copper, and holds up the film as a leading actor.

Nothing fancy, just plain old police work like it really would happen. However, they use all tricks, and not all of then are written in the police handbook. Young Angelo steals 200 grams of heroin at a bust, so that they can use I to portion it up and plant it on some of those tending to get away. The whole unit are so close to the drug environment, that it is a trust problem on many accounts. Even media starts doubting the reason for the good number of busts they are doing.

The film work is good. Exciting to follow, and there's a certain nerve that is catching. I like the action scenes, and the flight scenes, which are effective and raw stuff. The movie is filmed in both colorful moments, as gritty dark bleak moments, depending on what situation we are in.

Undoubtedly one of the best Spanish films I've seen!
