The Seven Ups

The Seven Ups is a serviceable dualer about some underground cops who get caught in a series of gangland kidnappings. Produced by debuting director Philip D'Antoni in NY, the film features, at midpoint, a complicated and extravagant car chase which must have taxed the ingenuity of the director and that of stunt coordinator Bill Hickman. Roy Scheider heads an okay cast in a fair script.

Roy Scheider heads an okay cast in a fair script.

Plot finds Scheider, Victor Arnold, Jerry Leon and Ken Kercheval members of a special NYPD unit which operates in unorthodox methods. Tony Lo Bianco plays an informant who uses Scheider’s loan shark list to set up his own kidnap operation.

Scheme backfires with Kercheval’s surprise death. That event sets off Scheider into a spree of lawless law enforcement which on the screen always turns out right.
