Director: Phil D'Antoni, Roy Scheider, Victor Arnold, Jerry Leon

Fox has issued a decent disc for a midrange price with this DVD edition of The Seven-Ups. Viewers are given the choice of a pan-and-scan or letterboxed transfer; both look fine, but the widescreen version is the obvious winner, capturing the film's gritty look and earthy color palette with plenty of crisp detail.

Overview

Fox has issued a decent disc for a midrange price with this DVD edition of The Seven-Ups. Viewers are given the choice of a pan-and-scan or letterboxed transfer; both look fine, but the widescreen version is the obvious winner, capturing the film's gritty look and earthy color palette with plenty of crisp detail. Stereo and mono mixes are offered on the disc and both produce a solid, distortion-free soundtrack for the viewer. In terms of extras, the disc offers "Anatomy of a Chase," a vintage featurette that details how the film's chase centerpiece was staged and also offers some interesting behind-the-scenes footage. Surprisingly, the disc lacks a trailer. Fans of the film might have wanted a few more extras, but overall this is a fine disc for the price tag. As a result, The Seven-Ups can easily be recommended to fans of vintage cop movies.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The Seven-Ups is often remembered for its car-chase sequence but there's much more to this film than just automotive thrills. Indeed, The Seven-Ups is just as interesting when it isn't concentrating on action; the script draws the viewer in by letting them figure out the personas and events driving the story instead of spelling it all out, and Philip D'Antoni directs the film in a confident style, giving it a gritty yet stylish look and underplaying the dramatic moments to give them greater effect. The Seven-Ups is also boosted by solid, naturalistic performances from a quality cast: Roy Scheider and Tony Lo Bianco are both effortlessly convincing as men who approach their respective ambitions with a single-minded, streetwise mentality, and Richard Lynch is creepy as an amoral crook who is ruled by his lust for money. Finally, the action lives up to the tough nature of the storyline (the central car chase is truly breathtaking) and the unexpected ending finishes the film on a haunting note. All in all, The Seven-Ups is one of Hollywood's best police-oriented thrillers from the 1970s and a must for those fond of this subgenre.
