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 --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.
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 alternate Blu-ray edition.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.
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.
There are a lot of clichés in this film. The old cop near retiring partnered with the young cop, with a thirst for blood; you know something's going to happen to the young couple who look into each others eyes lovingly - especially when the wife can't find the right moment to tell her husband she's pregnant - and the fact it seems to be constantly raining. It always seems to be raining in cop films, which makes the film even darker.
All of the actors do a great job. Morgan Freeman is his usual self, never smiling, although it was great to hear him laughing in this film - I don't think I've ever heard that before. Brad Pitt was looking rather fine in this, especially when he got rained on. Gwyneth Paltrow was pretty and rather underused and there was some unusual chemistry between her and Brad - considering they were dating around this time.
This film isn't for the faint-hearted. I didn't find it as scary second time round, although I had a cushion handy just in case. OK, it's a story about murders based on the seven deadly sins - gluttony, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and wrath. So prepare yourself for the unexpected! Look out for the lust murder, as I found that to be the worst of the seven. Any female out there will be wincing, crossing her legs, and never wanting to let a guy near her again! Ouch to say the least.
This film will leave you guessing right up until the last minute - and at just two hours long, that's a lot of minutes to be guessing who the killer is! It's a good film, although I couldn't watch it more than once. Maybe again in another couple of years, and I haven't been refusing to watch it because of the ending which wasn't what I remembered/imagined it to be!
