Unfortunately, the movie's clammy design, glum cinematography, and lugubrious pace try to persuade us that what we're watching isn't an ingenious, silly piece of pulp but a serious meditation on the nature of evil.

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

It is very tiresome peering through the gloom trying to catch a glimpse of something interesting, then having to avert one's eyes when it turns out to be just another brutally tormented body.

Once homicide detectives Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt catch on to his modus operandi, there's little left in the movie to think about except, gee, wonder how the murderous maniac will do Sloth or Envy?

Unfortunately, most of the scenes in Seven are unlikely, which means that by the end of the movie the duo is battling not just an insane killer but an off-the-wall screenwriter.

Were it not for the gravity and thoughtfulness of Morgan Freeman's performance as a retiring policeman, and the third-act appearance of its bizarre villain, Seven would be unendurable.

Eventually, with its irrationally downbeat ending, Seven even drags the viewer down into the abyss.

The trouble with Seven is that while the premise is intriguing, the movie is gluey, bumbling and singularly un-thrilling.

Noticeable skill has gone into the making of Seven, but it's hard to take much pleasure in that.

The crime scenes are rendered in sickening detail, and the whole film has a murky, madly pretentious tone.

So chic, studied and murky it resembles a cross between a Nike commercial and a bad Polish art film.

For all of the portentous atmosphere, Seven runs on a routine cop-show plot.

Rod Dreher
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The two actors misfire here: Freeman is so low-key he's almost drowsy, and Pitt jumps around like a chihuahua to no effect. It doesn't help that the sound mix is so murky that much of their dialogue sinks into the murk.

There's none of the humor that takes the sting out of slasher movies, and certainly none of the psychology and depth that made The Silence of the Lambs such an intellectual thriller.

Grim, slick, shocking thriller. Older teens only.

Good as it is, it misses greatness by not quite finding the right way to end.

Seven is unnecessarily gory and runs for a little too long, but neither of these elements detracts much from the film's enjoyability (unless you have a weak stomach).

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

A harrowingly bleak vision that haunted me in the theatres and made my flesh slick with fear even on this recent re-viewing.

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.
