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.
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'…
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…
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 have no words but THANKS FINCHER ILY
Liked it a lot.
Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his modus operandi. - IMDB
There should have been something in my life that recorded the amount of times that I've seen films. I wish there really was. I say that because this one would be right up there in the number of views. It's one of those films that I could watch any time.
It's brilliant. Pure brilliance. I looked through Fincher's filmography as I thought there was something that I preferred watching to Se7en. There really isn't. Most of them are great, but non like this. It has everything you want in a thriller. Everything.
On this watch, which I…
You know how they say some films are a experience well this is it. One of the best bread Pitt delivers more than I expected him too.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
David Fincher, Is a very offbeat director. I respect his work. But this movie didn't impress me. Basic element of this film is its story. It was good. Story criticises humans and their sins in very short on screen duration. But at the last quarter of the film, everything becomes so predictable that I lost interest. Mills ' ignoring his wife's calls and killer offering himself for arrest declared the further events.
Screenplay, score and acting was really great. I specially liked starting credits. It was wisely and beautifully designed. And the scene when detectives enters an apartment where they finds a man strapped to bed for almost one year, and while observing his body he suddenly coughs.! OMG.! I literally shouted at that movement. It was more horrifying than many horror movies. Such scenes shows the efficiency of Director
Not worshiping Se7en, is the eighth deadly sin.
I admit that I am a bit conflicted about ranking a film like Seven so highly, and I am actually pleasantly surprised that I still like it as much as I do. Years ago, I got tired of serial killer thrillers, especially after all the serial killer of the week stuff that has followed in its wake, which is also funny considering that Seven was initially living in the shadow of The Silence of the Lambs. I have grown to hate movies that hinge on twist endings, but the difference with this one is that the journey is much more interesting than the destination, whereas with other works of its ilk, one only remembers the twist and thus becomes immediately…
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
