Seven (Se7en) Reviews

David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor

Although the story isn't original, it's powerfully directed by David Fincher, and Morgan Freeman gives another of his superbly understated performances.

The reason to see Seven, which is decidedly not for the faint of stomach, is not for the punishment of sin, but the many virtues of Freeman's contribution.

Stephen Hunter
Baltimore Sun

The investigation and the clues that lead to the murderer are well thought out and continually provocative. As a narrative, the film is quite involving.

Seven is a work of extraordinary style, upsetting power and narrative daring.

The odd thing about Seven, however, is that except for its facile, familiar and ridiculously gimmicky plot, it's a pretty involving murder mystery.

As with all the best chillers, the real horror is left unseen and to the viewers' imagination.

The movie is riveting in a gut-twisting way, but I, myself, would not call it "entertaining."

... An unrelenting examination of the evil that may or may not be festering inside every one of us.

An intensely claustrophobic, gut-wrenching thriller.

IGN DVD

Despite some truly fantastic work throughout the '90s and 2000s, Se7en still remains director David Fincher's best film, albeit by a very narrow margin.

David Fincher is at the top of his form with Seven, one of the darkest, creepiest, and most brilliant serial killer pictures in American film history, far more interesting than Silence of the Lambs.

Film4

Fincher and Walker take these hackneyed ingredients, play with them in the context of a brilliantly cohesive plot, and present something consistently fresh -- and very, very dark.

The filmmakers stick to their vision with such dedication and persistence that something indelible comes across -- something ethically and artistically superior to The Silence of the Lambs that refuses to exploit suffering for fun or entertainment.

The situation is formulaic, but director David Fincher contrives a stylish, intentionally ugly look that transcends the pulp narrative.

The real star of Seven, however, is the gloom and doom of the setting: an unidentified blight of a modern city.

If you think you know where the story is going, think again. This movie has an unconventional ending worthy of the anti-hero movies of the Seventies.

Fincher handles the violence with sensitivity, announcing its obscenity in spoken analyses and briefly glimpsed post mortem shots, but never showing the murderous acts themselves.
