Product Description

Gluttony. Greed. Sloth. Wrath. Pride. Lust. Envy. Two cops (Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman) track a brilliant and elusive killer who orchestrates a string of horrific murders, each kill targeting a practitioner of one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Gwyneth Paltrow also stars in this acclaimed thriller set in a dour, drizzly city sick with pain and blight. David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) guides the action - physical, mental and spiritual - with a sure understanding of what terrifies us, right up to a stunning denouement that will rip the scar tissue off the most hardened soul.

"Se7en" can clearly be counted among the tops in the murder/mystery thriller type movies of all time as it is an extremely intense film that frightens the soul and fills the entertainment need for such movies. Fair warning to the faint of heart as the graphics of this film are just as intense as the script itself. Much of this film is based on the script being as intense as it as the two primary characters are trying to figure out who the killer is before he/she makes it all the way through the seven deadly sins; what I find difficult to believe when watching the film though is that the screenwriter felt it was necessary to resort to excessive bouts of cursing as opposed to reasonably intelligent verbiage. I'm far from being a prude of any sort however, a thing can be taken too far and the language of this film was taken too far too often.
Performance wise, what else can be expected of Morgan Freeman other than another marvelous performance! There are very few films in which he's starred that one could say weren't good films and parts for him; he continues to be one of the top actors in the industry. Brad Pitt gives another great performance in this film despite his part being the one in which the screenwriter overindulged in a lack of intelligent writing. Kevin Spacey's actual screen time is very limited in this film but his performance is extremely powerful. Gwyneth Paltrow, such the beauty that she is, has a limited role in the film but leaves an impression nonetheless.
Director David Fincher who is probably best known for such films as the more recent "Fight Club" and "Panic Room" shows an exceptional stylistic flair in "Seven" that carries over to his other films.

Seven is, arguably, the most gruesome movie I've ever seen. I only saw the Tv version, which cut out a lot of the gore, and I had the unfortunate luck to see the ending first. Yet still, I rate the movie as one of the best I've seen.
The movie has only four core cast members, consisting of Detective Somerset (Morgan Freeman) a veteran, retiring detective that is both a realist and a wiseman, Detective Mills (Brad Pitt), a young cop that is eager to solve the case, Mills' wife, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, and the serial killer, Kevin Spacey in a role that I can relate to and one that I can abhor.
As you already know, the serial killer, who is named as John Doe throughout the film, murders his victims gruesomely via the seven deadly sins (Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Greed, Gluttony, Lust, and Pride, not in that order.) It's both interesting and horrifying as to the way Doe murders his victims, and believe me, you won't guess at least two of them.
Director David Fincher manages a very bleak and despairing atmosphere, where he shows the true ugliness of humanity. Sex, obesity, all of them disgustingly illustrated and updated by the murders. No scene that I recall is without darkness, rain, or street garbage. Ironically, though, the climax, the most eye-opening scene of the movie, is shot in broad daylight, which itself is dulled by cinematography.
As said by the amazon review, the serial killer is in fact focusing on Mills and Somerset, especially Mills. It all becomes clear in the final scene, but to truly enjoy the film you must watch it with undivided attention and several buckets of popcorn.

First off, the good: This movie set a cinematographic standard for urban gothic-thrillers. The film presents its metropolis as a grity Daedalian labrynth in which around each dark corner some human vice is manifesting itself in macabre excess. It is grity, claustrophobic, and dark. Lights pulsate a sickly yellow, tight focus keeps the dark a mystery and the constant darkness implies a godless world were hedonistic lifestyles lead to extremes of degradation. Humanity is slitting its wrists. The movie's production design and cinematography are interesting, intimidating and perfect for the theme.
Now, the bad: That is all Se7en is! Se7en's best points are its darkness, its credits and the clever use of "7" in place of "v"! All other elements of the movie fall under "the bad"; The plot, the characters, the atempts at tenstion, the dialogue and the direction.
The Plot: A clearly extremely deranged man is going around killing people in graphic parodies of The Seven Deadly Sins. The end! That's it! The police investigation into his murders is superficial and reveals no methods the police might use to identify the killer. Furthermore the several instances where Morgan Freeman suggests exploring literary sources for
clues as to what the murderer's goals might be or who he will kill next never reveal any new information to the viewer, and they seem not to convey information to the characters either. The only "revelation"(excuse the Biblicality of this wording) made by the detectives is that the killer is killing in ways relating to the Seven Deadly Sins, and we can understand that from the title!
The plot of the police investigation merely serves as a frame story to reveal each gruesome set peice of the murders.
