Product Details

Product Description


The most viscerally frightening and disturbing homicidal maniac picture since The Silence of the Lambs, Seven is based on an idea that's both gruesome and ingenious. A serial killer forces each of his victims to die by acting out one of the seven deadly sins. The murder scene is then artfully arranged into a grotesque tableau, a graphic illustration of each mortal vice. From the jittery opening credits to the horrifying (and seemingly inescapable) concluding twist, director David Fincher immerses us in a murky urban twilight where everything seems to be rotting, rusting, or moulding; the air is cold and heavy with dread. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are the detectives who skillfully track down the killer--all the while unaware that he has been closing in on them, as well. Gwyneth Paltrow and Kevin Spacey are also featured, but it is director Fincher and the ominous, overwhelmingly oppressive atmosphere of doom that he creates that are the real stars of the film. It's a terrific date movie--for vampires. --Jim Emerson

Special Features

For fans and filmmakers alike, New Line's Platinum Edition of Seven is one of the most comprehensive DVDs ever released. Four feature-length commentaries accompany the film on Disc 1; perhaps most interesting are the comments of sound designer Ren Klyce and composer Howard Shore, who explain in eloquent detail how their work was created to enhance mood and establish atmosphere to match the visuals. The film's trendsetting title sequence is explored and discussed in exhaustive detail, and a photo gallery demonstrates how meticulous efforts were made to create rich authenticity to the psychology of the film's serial killer. Deleted scenes demonstrate the rigors of the editorial process, and a never-filmed alternate ending is presented in storyboard format. Of particular interest to DVD collectors is a fascinating exploration of the audio remixing and video remastering process, demonstrating the subtleties of digital color and tone manipulation, and proving beyond question that this is the most definitive version of Seven ever released. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Limited Edition blu-ray steelbook is pretty good Jan. 3 2014
By C. Denison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The limited edition blu-ray steelbook of the movie Se7en is pretty good. Not the best steelbook I've ever seen though. The front of it is identical to the original blu-ray release (the black and red cover with the "Seven Deadly Sins" written all over the front of it, except Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman's names are NOT at the top). The back has a picture or Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman from the chest up, holding flashlights, and looking into the direction of the camera. There is no inside artwork. The quality of this steelbook is good. The colour quality of the front is very nice, but I think the back of it could've been slightly better. Would've been nice to have some sort of inner artwork as well. Build quality is solid.

This release only contains the one blu-ray disc which contains the movie and special features. The 1080p picture quality and 7.1 DTS HD-MA audio are exceptional. VERY well done! You won't be disappointed with this release. I also want to point out that this release has Se7en in it's correct aspect ratio of 2.40:1. There are some really neat special features including four audio commentary tracks, deleted scenes, alternate endings, photo gallery featurettes, three different versions of the opening title sequence, etc. The extras are definitely worth checking out.

Like I said, this is a pretty good steelbook. Would've been nice to have some inner artwork, but I got this for a pretty low price here on Amazon, so I'm not going to complain too much. If you can get it for around the $10 mark, or if you're a big fan of Se7en, then it's an easy recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aspect Ratio a let down May 18 2009
I was excited to be able to purchase this fine film on blu-ray and viewed it right away when it arrived. I was upset to see that the origional aspect radio was no intact. As a true movie buff I want to see any movie in the correct aspect ratio how it was meant to be seen. The PQ is far superior to the old school two sided non-anamorphic ws dvd I have owned for years. I must say though that the adjusted aspect ratio is a most unwelcomed change. I will likley purchase a blu-ray copy of this film again when the correct aspect ratio becomes available.

5.0 out of 5 stars There are people............... June 18 2004
............who actually despise unhappy endings. They expect every story wrought with villiany should end with rainbows and kittens. Because we all know that's how the world works, right?
Most people that have seen this movie view it for what it tries to be. Mainly a twisted spiral of darkness and violence increasing in its disturbing imagry until the explosive finale. Then there are those that liked it up until the end. Huh?....the ending is what made it stand out from all the rest of Silence of the Lambs clones. This movie showed real cajones by submitting us to a disturbing and 'un-Hollywood' type ending. People should at least have respect for that. As one reviewer put it, "..this movie sucks you deeper and deeper into an abyss then leaves you there." Yeah, I know....great, huh? Then there are those that think the movie was pretty good...it just went too far. Look, it's rated R for a reason. Besides, some of the most memorable classics like 'The Exorcist' was proclaimed as, "..gone too far."
In case you don't know:
The plot: Mysterious serial killer murders victims based on the seven deadly sins.
-greed, lust, pride, gluttony, sloth, vanity, and wrath.
The characters: Hot-headed rookie detective played by Pitt + Refined, calm, and intelligent veteren detective played by Morgan Freeman.
The killer: Well, it's supposed to be a surprise since his name wasn't even in the opening credits.
Conclusion: I wasn't kidding about the ending. It's not cupcakes and roses. I remember seeing this on the opening night in the theater. As the credits rolled, there was no talking as people exited the theater. Actually most people didn't move for a couple of minuets. Only pale terrified faces across the masses. This is great filmaking BECAUSE it leaves you with such feelings.
Seven is already a classic amongst suspense thrillers and it will always be so. So do yourself a favor and check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven (1995) May 30 2004
Director: David Fincher
Cast: Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow, John C. McGinley, Kevin Spacey.
Running Time: 127 minutes.
Rated R for extreme violence, gore, and language.
One of the most gruesome, yet intriguing mystery/suspense thrillers of the past decade, "Seven" is widely considered one of the best of its kind-and rightfully so. It is a film that will test the stomachs of all its viewers, yet even those who feel queasy throughout the entire picture stay engaged because of the impeccable acting, top-notch direction, and riveting cinematography.
Detective William Somerset (a stupendous, touching performance from the always admirable Morgan Freeman) is looking forward to retirement-he has had it with all the horror, stress, and dead partners that accompany his job. His young protégé, Detective Mills (Brad Pitt), is looking forward to follow in his footsteps, but realizes that his feet are in too deep as a serial killer who calls himself "John Doe" begins to parade around the city-killing each of his victims in a pattern that references to the seven deadly sins. As both detectives uncover more of the truth about the horrific killer, they become entangled in a ghoulish scheme that will shock them. Gwyneth Paltrow gives a fine performance as Mills's distressed wife.
Director David Fincher creates a dark and disturbing film, using Freeman and Pitt well (both give slightly dark, somber performances) to his advantage. The unique camera angles, explosive chase sequences, and vivid crime scenes enhance the picture, making "Seven" an inimitable thriller that is so effective, powerful, and alarming that it will scare your socks right off.

Be prepared to be glued to your screen. Seven delivers an incredible storyline that is eerily believeable and could happen anywhere in this strange world of ours.
