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 molding; 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

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.
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.Read more ›
Morgan Freeman is a retiring city detective. He takes Brad Pitt under his wing as a serial killer is on the loose, killing people in theme with the seven deadly sins. Good film with a decent Howard Shore sound track. I did catch a NIN rift during the credits. I thought the ending was predictable. And personally I would have used the alternate note book ending they never filmed, because that was what I expected.
At two hours long, we still don't get to know any history or the mind of the killer. That would have been nice.
Guide: F-bomb, male nudity.

An older movie, well scripted, and equally well acted. The uncredited appearance of James Stacey provided the perfect ending.Published 8 months ago by Howard
