|Gluttony, greed, sloth, envy, wrath, pride, and lust--these are the seven deadly sins that are being punished with unimaginable cruelty and calculation by an enigmatic killer in David Fincher's bleak thriller SEVEN. Set in a perpetually gloomy unnamed city, the film follows Somerset (Morgan Freeman), a retiring police detective, as he experiences his final week on the job, reluctantly working with assertive newcomer Mills (Brad Pitt). When an obese man is found brutally murdered in his home, the seasoned Somerset realizes this is no ordinary killing--someone tortured him because of his appetite. Slayings that reflect the sins of greed and sloth soon follow, leading Somerset and Mills on a desperate search to find the mysterious John Doe, who is responsible for these methodical murders. As the case builds to a startling conclusion, both Somerset and Mills become more involved than they ever could have imagined.After a brief opening scene, SEVEN immediately cuts to a highly stylized title sequence. An intricate collage of books and photos, scissors and razors, and blood and skin eerily captures the dark, graphic tone of Fincher's intriguing mystery. The film cleverly avoids depicting most acts of violence onscreen, focusing instead on the cryptic remains of the crimes, allowing viewers to investigate along with the detectives. An example of nearly flawless filmmaking, the movie features a meticulously crafted screenplay, brilliant photography and design, sure-handed direction, and excellent performances from the entire cast. All of these elements combine to amazing effect in the film's unforgettably stunning finale.|

Long is the way, and hard, that out of hell leads up to light ... [John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book II. Line 432] "Seven deadly sins, seven ways to die" is the tagline for this intense psychological thriller directed by David Fincher: ~ Detective Sergeant Mills [Brad Pitt] is set to replace Detective Lieutenant Somerset [Morgan Freeman], a world-weary cop retiring after years on the force. Somerset can see no end to the harrowing crimes he has witnessed, the sickness that is the City. Dealing with murder, rape, abuse, and poverty has become the Lieutenant's life and he now hopes for some small shred of peace. Mills, on the other hand, is new to the city; he is arrogant and brash, having little time for Somerset's thoughtful and analytical techniques. As retirement beckons, so a new spate of killings begin. Like it or not, Somerset is given the investigation by the Captain [R Lee Ermey] while Mills is put on a different case. The murders are soon linked to the same killer - a twisted genius who chooses his victims based on the seven deadly sins in Dante Alighieri's 'The Divine Comedy' - and Mills and Somerset are paired together once more. Despite their clash of personalities Mills and Somerset strike up a good partnership, Somerset's introspectiveness and Mills's self-confidence turning out to be a useful combination. Each one learns a lot from the other; indeed, Mills's wife [Gwyneth Paltrow] thinks Somerset is a good influence on the husband she is rapidly growing concerned about. It soon becomes apparent that the 'sins' killer is playing a deadly cat-and-mouse game with the detectives, enjoying watching them either stumble or succeed at every turn in the case ... while he continues to kill according to the seven deadly sins: gluttony, greed, sloth, envy, wrath, pride, lust. They must stop him before he can finish his murder spree and most probably disappear forever ~ Se7en is not only the most accomplished film by David Fincher [Zodiac] but almost certainly - from a writing and directing viewpoint - the best psychological thriller in the history of film and television. There are none of the stereotypical clichés found in countless thrillers of violence, no room for the predictable, for the viewer is kept constantly in the dark until the very end. And the climax is both ferocious and awe-striking ... for once Hollywood kept the outcome a secret until the day of release, not an easy thing to do. Whatever vision Andrew Kevin Walker had before he took his script to screenwriter David Koepp [Secret Window] was ultimately realized once in the hands of David Fincher. Fincher's dark and rain-driven sewer, his city of sins, has yet to be matched on film. His choice of cast was spot-on. Se7en is a true classic, crossing genres like crime, horror, thriller and police procedural ... dark and moody, harrowing and painful, Se7en will appeal to the darker side within us all. Co-stars John C McGinley as California. Ghost BookFiends.
Seven (DVD, 2000)
Morgan Freeman is Detective Somerset, and he is retiring in just a week. He is tasked with handing off current investigations to newcomer, Detective Mills (Brad Pitt). While investigating the gruesome murder of a morbidly obese man, it is soon obvious that the killer is just getting started. Other murders are discovered and it is soon evident that the killer was committing murders reflecting the seven deadly sins, gluttony, greed, sloth, envy, wrath, pride, and lust. Somerset and Mills embark on a desperate search to find the mysterious John Doe, who is responsible for these methodical murders. As the case builds to a startling conclusion, both Somerset and Mills become more involved than they ever could have imagined. This film features a meticulously crafted plot. Most of the violence and gore is avoided on screen, instead focusing on the cryptic remains of the crimes. This is a real psychological thriller that you just won't want to put down.
This is a terrific thriller. Morgan Freeman is excellent as the jaded, cynical, soon-to-be-retired cop who wants desperately to nab the serial killer before he must retire. Brad Pitt is the young, angry, impetuous replacement for Freeman, who lets his emotions drive his relentless hunt for the killer. Kevin Spacey personifies the cool, calculating killer with a twisted mind that recalls images of Hannibal Lecter. A great procedural as the good guys piece together clues while they wrestle with their own internal demons. A surprise ending that you probably won't see coming.
Great 2-disc deluxe set of a classic dark thriller.
Excellent 2-disc set - if you love this movie (and I do), it's a no-brainer that you buy this. Se7en is a classic creepy thriller/horror film by legendary director David Fincher ("The Social Network", "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") and shows all the hallmarks of Fincher's trademark style: rich, chiaroscuro lighting and composition, smart dialog, moral complexity, and fascinating, dark characters. The Platinum set has multiple film commentaries and a second disc full of fun extras that highlight the amazing amount of detail put into the making of the film. Definitely worth a watch or two (or, in my case, many more times than just two)!
Don't Be A Sinner You'll Live Longer!
This is a fun thrill ride of a movie stars Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey..Film begins with a murder being investigated by a soon to retire Cop played by Freeman..when his replacement arrives he decides to hand over his duties as quickly as possible, but something tugs at his conscince and he secretly begins helping the young Dectective played by Pitt, btw Gweneth Paltrow plays Pitts young pretty Wife, she makes a positive impression on her Hubbys temporary Partner..as the two work together they begin to unravel the mystery of the sadistic killer played by Spacey (Viewers will see a hint of Hannibal Lector in Spaceys performance) who uses the seven deadly sins to choose his victims..as they draw closer to the killer all hell breaks loose and someone gets hurt..caution Film is filled with grotesque images and foul langauge..film may begin with murder being the name of the game, but it quickly turns into a game of vengeance..who will win the game?? Watch and see, this movie wont disappoint and viewers be aware you wont see it coming!! I give this film 5 out of 5 bars!!
