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.

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.
(PLOT SPOILER) For example: at the end of the film, essentially ... wins, by luring Pitt into the final sin, humanity is lost in despair, and we all go home and kill ourselves. No, sorry, I would like to believe that there is a greater power that we can tap, than that of Sin (7 or otherwise) and evil, that is Love. That is why I think the film should have ended thus:
Pitt is shocked in the final moments of the film, and Freeman thus realizing what is happening, makes a choice in Love - turning and killing the killer, before Pitt can react. Voice over as Freeman turns and holds Pitt back - "Sometimes we must make a choice to lay down our own lives, careers or otherwise, for the sake of our friends . . ." Or something like that. Wouldn't that be much more inspiring? Hope in the midst of all that evil and death. All the blood and gore, and disturbing imagery in the end lack any need, being devices to evoke emotion, and in the face of the final message - No redeeming value, whatsoever.
Sorry. Try "Shawshank Redemption."
The added bonuses, however, fail to live up to expectations. The commentaries are inane at best. When talking about scenes that were cut down or cut out, the director's comments are "We decided to cut this scene. I like the lighting, though." Nothing about why they cut the scene, or why they decided to change it, or anything that might have been interesting. When talking about the opening credits, he says something like "We hand wrote the names. Neat." Not where the inspiration for the pictures came from, just that they made credits. The "additional endings" they promise are a test ending that is basically the same as the final ending, and a storyboard ending that wasn't filmed. Not what I hoped for. The pictures from John Doe film is really dumb, since most of the pictures are badly exposured and have been deteriorated to the point where there's no picture, just blobs. Dumb use of disc space and a waste of time to watch.
I was expecting something more in the commentaries, like why they did what they did, not just that they did it. The movie gets 4 stars, the other stuff gets 2 for an average of 3 stars.

The movie itself is good, however the cd has a lot of scratches on it. Not happy about that.Published 4 months ago by Emily K
