one of my absolute favorites!
Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .
One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
This film was initially received with lukewarm review is now considered one of the greatest film ever. This film is so dark at its core that it will make you grip on your sit. SUMMARY: This film is about a serial killer who kills people based on the Seven Deadly Sins and Detective Somerset (played by Morgan Freeman) and Detective Mills (played by Brad Pitt) must investigate to catch the killer. Se7en is a very gloomy film, so gloomy that I consider the ending of this film as one of the most tragic ending ever in cinematic history and also one of the greatest ending in history. But this film is not really about a serial killer on a killing spree and the protagonists trying to catch them, it's about how this "city" is affecting the characters in this film. This is one great example of exploiting the settings to affect the characters. There are small moments in this film that shows that they are in fact humans and not just some random film character. Speaking of characters, all actors/actresses in this film is great especially by Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt. This is still one of my most favorite film ever.
This is my first IMDb review and I had this account for more than 10 years.Morgon Freeman, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey - all great actors couldn't have pulled this masterpiece any better.This movie keeps you on your toes till the end. I was watching this movie very late in the night and was pretty much tired, but the movie just woke me up; especially the ending throws you upside down.This is dark at its finest but will also keep your mind hanging in the air questioning how sinister life can be.Simply a great movie !
I can't believe it's been 23 years since this movie came out. An absolute classic. Before the Saw franchise there was Se7en. A crime thriller about a self-righteous messianic wannabe that decided to kill (or set up to be killed) seven people who'd committed one of the seven deadly sins.23 years later this movie still holds its own proving that it wasn't just a movie for that era. Set in Metro it could have been any city. The setting was perpetually rainy, dreary, filthy and crime-ridden. It could've been Gotham, Metropolis, Sin City, etc. It was the perfect setting for the crimes that unfolded. The performances were great but no one could outdo the psycho. Considering that there may be some out there that have been under a rock for the last 23 years I don't want to say who the psycho was. But his ability to convey pure smug moralism after having been responsible for multiple deaths was just eerie and even rage-inducing.Se7en is a must see for psychological crime thriller enthusiasts.
*SPOILERS AHEAD* The movie se7en, directed by David Fincher and released in 1995 stars Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. Pitt, is a young detective taking place of Freeman, who is an old, grizzled, detective who thinks he has seen it all, that is until this case. The goal of our heroes is to catch a new serial killer on the loose. This new serial killer, because of the unknown identity of the killer is referred to as John Doe. After investigating the first of Doe's crime scenes it is unknown as to why these killings were committed. But, after the second crime scene detectives noticed the word "GREED" written behind a painting. It becomes apparent that John Doe is committing murders based off of the seven deadly sins written by Dante Alighieri. Soon the other killings follow: Gluttony, Sloth, Lust, Pride. After the murder of pride is committed the detectives have hit a dead end. This apparent defeat is short lived when the killer, still known only as John Doe turns himself in. Through negotiations John Doe exchanges a written confession for the detectives to take him out to a field. It is there when a box is delivered to the field with Brad Pitt's wife's head in the box. Before Pitt is made known of it John Doe tells Pitt how much he envies him, thus committing the sixth sin. Pitt, obviously outraged and furious shoots John Doe in the head committing the seventh and final sin: Wrath. The movies with Brad Pitt being carried off to jail and a distraught Morgan Freeman who goes on to retire. se7en has strong Christian undertones and themes. The strongest and most prevalent of these themes are Good v Evil, with evil coming out on top by the end of the movie. Now the problem with evil coming out on top is that it paints Christianity in a bad light. John Doe is a devout Christian and that is why he commits these killings. This battle between good and evil is illustrated by Doe committing killings, with Pitt and Freeman being at least three steps behind. And sadly, the "resolution" of our hero, Brad Pitt is not really present. But, the ending of the movie does give a message that coincides with biblical truth and that's shoving Christianity down people's throats. Doe states in the movie that in order for the love of God to be spread, he must first display to the world what is wrong with it. I'm no expert but that is not the kindest way of letting people know about the love of God. As stated before Christianity is of main prevalence in the movie. Christianity is not portrayed in a positive light with the main villain being a radical Christian committing multiple murders in order to spread the gospel. On the subject of evil being celebrated in the film, one could argue both points. One side would argue that the fact that evil wins is celebrating it. But, the other side would argue that the film depicts not only evil, but the effects it has on people's surroundings and it paints it in a bad light. And lastly, you can only recommend this movie to people with strong stomachs and people that can handle a film taking their religion hostile. All in all, se7en is a masterpiece of David Fincher. It's constant suspense and stomach turning visuals will keep a viewer glued to their seat for the entire runtime.
