Movie Summary

Released:

Rating:
PG
The Seven-Ups is the 1973 cult action crime drama from producer-turned-director Philip D'Antoni (The French Connection, Bullitt). Buddy Manucci (Roy Scheider, Jaws) leads a covert undercover police unit dubbed the Seven-Ups whose methods don't exactly adhere to due process. They get the job done in their own way without anything being leaked to the press, and this gives them a freedom to expand their means of getting to the criminals most working detectives and policeman just cannot nab. Buddy has a pal from childhood named Vito (Tony Lo Bianco) who swaps information with him regarding mob types and shysters working the streets in NYC. What Buddy doesn't know is that Vito is hatching a scheme using names from Buddy's check list - he has this book open taking down notes provided by Vito, but doesn't know that his friend has copied those very names written within his mind to set up mob families in a series of mob kidnappings eliciting cash thanks to two cop-posers, Moon (the always-villainous Richard Lynch) and Bo (Bill Hickman) working with him. When this scheme goes awry, with one of the Seven-Ups being killed, Vito becomes fearful because he knows how Buddy can be when he's doggedly after someone - especially when one of his own is murdered.moreless
