Critic Review - Washington Post

Unfortunately, screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker's finale, in addition to its grossness, feels like an act of treachery against the viewer.

You simply didn't get it. This was better than 95% of the crap you endorsed.

You, idiot!!!! The finale is fine, the gruesome is nothing (unless you are a pussy, and YOU are one) and you don't even do your homework, do you? This was the director's finale, Walker's wanted another one... You suck, mate... You suck a lot...

I disagree as I felt that the grossness of the bodies and etc. added to the film's allure. I totally agree, however, that the film's ending left much to be desired. I still don't understand how you labeled it "rotten," however.

The ending of this film is consistent with the tone of the direction: doom-laden and gloomy. It's a movie that wants you to feel unsettled and Fincher, in what may be considered his masterpiece, even after nearly 2 decades of film-making, has yet to match it. The unbearable ending is not meant to make you feel better. The average horror flick asks you be sickened by grisly violence while, at the same time, satisfying the blood-lust for more and more grisly "kills." SEVEN asks you to be sickened by its violence and by leaving all the violence offscreen achieves its goal.
