Seven deadly sins. Seven ways to die.
Two homicide detectives are on a desperate hunt for a serial killer whose crimes are based on the "seven deadly sins" in this dark and haunting film that takes viewers from the tortured remains of one victim to the next. The seasoned Det. Sommerset researches each sin in an effort to get inside the killer's mind, while his novice partner, Mills, scoffs at his efforts to unravel the case.

“Anyone who spends a significant amount of time with me finds me disagreeable.”
He has taken on too much. Det. David Mills (Brad Pitt), deliberately uprooting his wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), from upstate and dragging her to this lurid hellhole, all out of a naïve desire to save the world. So much ambition, he nearly chokes on it. So much chatter, he sucks all the air from the room.
Det. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) long ago saw his passion wither. He is one week from retirement, too exhausted to keep pace with the horrible goings-on around him. Like his spiritual descendant, Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) in No Country for Old Men, he sees…

90% of horror films nowadays get no where near as creepy or lurid as even the credit sequence of Seven.
One of the greatest films of the 90s, without a doubt.
Se7en isn't just another 1990s movie I saw as a teenager, loved and revisted recently...I think it really stands out in a rather lackluster decade of film.
I will never forget my initial reaction to the movie, the dread I felt from each murder to the next and the ending just grabbing my heart and pulling it down into my stomach. After numerous watches in the 90s and early 2000s I had decided it was time for a much needed break. For the past few months I had been on Richard's case, telling him I was in the mood to watch Se7en, I am not even really sure what inspired it but I guess it was just time. With that…
Blazingly original, darkly disturbing, downright shocking, extremely grim, relentlessly brutal, insanely powerful & emotionally devastating, David Fincher's breakthrough feature is an intensely haunting masterpiece which today is widely & rightly counted amongst the greatest thrillers ever made, and is also notable for marking the commencement of an impressive directional career that continues to get stronger with every new film.
Taking place over the course of a week, the story of Se7en concerns two homicide detectives; the soon-to-retire William Somerset & the newly transferred David Mills, who become deeply involved in the recent case of appalling crimes relating to the seven deadly sins and desperately try to hunt down the sadistic serial killer before his mission is accomplished. The plot also covers the detectives'…
I have been thinking long and hard about it and the only flaw I can find in this film is the way the title is written. It makes no sense and is annoying.
The rest? Sheer perfection.
It is always difficult to determine when you are 'allowed' to call a film a classic or a masterpiece. To avoid that discussion let's use a term I think we can all agree on. Masterclass.
Each and every aspect of this film is executed with such a degree of perfection and dedication that it is nigh impossible to call it anything else. This is filmmaking at the highest level, a level that has not been equalled or surpassed often in the genre.
One of the most suspenseful neo-noir thrillers ever made, featuring one of the best endings of all time. Se7en is Fincher at his finest.
this movie was not as disturbing as i herd but never the lest it was a very good movie
I think I hyped myself too much for this film, doesn't mean it wasn't fucking amazing!
With two great lead performances from Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, stylish direction from David Fincher, a shocking ending and some absolutely gorgeous cinematography, "Se7en" is a thrilling and consistently entertaining crime thriller. Also the big actor who shows up in the third act completely steals the show.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Best movie I've seen in just over a week. Wait...a week is 7 days! Honey? HONEY?!
It's David Fincher directing a neo-film noire, need I say more?
Title sequence spookier than the X-Files. I don't know why I avoided this for so long because it's spectacular. I love The David Fincher. Morgan Freebird, K Spacey, and Brad Pitt at their finest. What's in the box? It wasn't a box of tacos.
gluttony is my personal fave if I'm honest.

Task # 11: A film about a serial killer
“Se7en” is a dark, smart thriller by director David Fincher. A serial killer murders people according to the seven deadly sins. We are all guilty of it sometimes, of one of those sins.
We follow detectives William Somerset and David mills. Somerset is about to retire and gets the task, in his last week, to get rookie Mills ready for the job. Their view on the job, and on life in general, is very different. Mills is energetic and aggressive, while Somerset is thoughtful, experienced and well-read. The serial killer they are tracking down chooses his victims based on the…
