We all have seen the concept of a group of people are dedicated to preserving the law, but becoming corrupt themselves a dozen or so times. The Spanish crime drama Grupo 7 (Unit 7) benefits from having tight writing and great performances that makes it worth sitting through regardless how many times the premise been used.

Grupo 7 (Unit 7) follows four team members, �ngel (Mario Casas), Rafael (Antonio de la Torre), Mateo (Joaquín Núñez), and Miguel (Josà (C) Manuel Poga), as an elite group of narcotics officers with a mandate to wipe out drug trafficking by any legal or illegal means. We have the usual rookie vs. veteran, family man vs. womanizer dynamic that are cliche character arc. What makes it material work is how in depth it examine the characters and delve into their past. It makes us question if it is worth stopping crime if it means doing it by unjust used. Another plus is how it manage to capture the realism these crimes have on the real world. Although, the ending will leave something to be desire as it does come abruptly without much examination of happens afterward to our elite team members. It does lose momentum in the second half, but good productions values helps it overcome it flaws. The performances from our cast keep us engage. Each of the main actors gave a heartfelt performance and demonstrated great chemistry that will have your eyes glue to the screen. The film direction is spot on always capturing the emotion of a scene to strong effect. It is superbly filmed using lighting to showcase the tensity of a conversation or the dark region of our character mind.

Grupo 7 (Unit 7) is a well written Spanish crime drama with heartfelt performances and good production values. It's tense and captures the realism of it story to make for an engaging viewing of law enforcers stopping drug trafficking.

Shiny boy Mario Casas did not quite convince me in this otherwise solid police thriller on the rise and fall of a supposedly hardcore unit determined to clean the city of Seville and make it safe before the expo cames to town.

Nothing interesting to see in this movie. Boring plot, conventional actors, and unintelligible lines. Avoid this film

Bien... bien, correcta cinta de detectives con sus metodos en un entorno de drogas creible, personajes, direccion, todo bien claro (quiza demasiado drama personal), pero convencional, ya que el tema es que este tipo de cine deberiamos haberlo superado hace tiempo, y deberiamos estar en otros lares en el panorama nacional, pero eso no quita que sea disfrutable y de muy buena factura, y si hay que empezar a hacer cine tipico de decadas pasadas para ponernos al dia, si esta tan bien hecho, bienvenido sea.

Peli española de policías en acción (no piensen en Torrente) que viene a demostrar que todavía se puede hacer cine de ese género, y bien. Muy bien. Excelentemente diría yo. Lo primero que deja en claro (en una primera persecución en que uno de los protagonistas se queda con merca) es que son corruptos. Lo segundo es que están ahí para hacer su trabajo, y por cualquier medio necesario (por ejemplo pegar martillazos en la cabeza en una interrogación). Y lo tercero es el contexto: suburbia de Sevilla que reacciona a este escuadrón prepotente que se cree mil. La peli encarrila en una escalada de furia y violencia que pensé que tenía que terminar en fatalidad. Pero en vez de eso, al final desacelera, disuelve, tira alguna pincelada final sobre los personajes y se va a los títulos. No es el mejor final, pero sí uno propio, y que no empaña todo lo anterior: hora y media de cine puro, potente, y mucho más vivo que cualquier Hollywoodeada que haya visto recientemente.

Fuerte, dura, sencilla pero le falta algo para salir del molde a este pelicula de policias antinarcoticos andaluces a los cuales es tan dificil entenderles el castellano, seria mejor con subtitulos. Es un buen ejercico pero parece copia de las clasicas: el policia rudo y el policia novato y suave que la pelicula lo convierte en otro patan mas.
