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.
I kept thinking of that Workaholics episode where they say "what's in THE BOX?!" so I kept laughing even though this movie was, like, so fucked up.
Also this isn't classified as a horror film, but I'm considering it a horror film because that shit is too messed up to just be a "crime thriller".
film 5 of 31 for "Halloweiner" Watchlist 2015
Great movie fam 7/7 did ya get the pun ayy
A surprisingly great thriller, with stellar performances by Morgan Freeman and the show stealer Kevin Spacey. Brad Pitt's performance was a bit over the top though. Even after 20 years, the gore and grit still shocks. The last line is killer.
Good visual style, but falls apart without the plot twist at the end
I have asthma so I obviously have an oxygen meter. That oxygen meter also measures my heart beat... My bpm reached 153 during the last 10 minutes of this movie...
Tenth watch of Hoop-Tober 2.0 | three films from two directors: Fincher (first of three). There was a time in which I didn’t think too highly of David Fincher (except for Fight Club) or of this movie in that respect; rewatching his works have done a lot to improve my image of the acclaimed filmmaker and tonight, by having another go at Se7en, I’ve finally come to regard him as simply one of my favourite directors. Se7en must be one of the most cleverly written crime thrillers of all time with especially the third act, featuring the surprise appearance of an incredible Kevin Spacey, as the cherry on top. Everything falls together so neatly and the car ride build-up to…
Increible una total obra de arte.
Aunque hubiese tenido un final mas dramatico, pero de igual manera es una gran pelicula solo tengo una critica muy humilde a la actuación de Brad le falto algo.
Se7en might be Fincher's best film in my opinion. It's a thrilling and very suspenseful movie with incredible direction, performances and it has one of the greatest movie endings ever in cinematic history.
Brad Pitt at his most real. Morgan Freeman just spot-on. Gripping, dark, cynical and often difficult to watch. The 'no happy ending' genre (a la Reservoir Dogs) is now pretty hackneyed, but I really think this one did the best job with it, especially with the grim perfection of the final scene.
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
