For nearly every movie about a sadistic criminal that would come after, some part of us recalls the words of Detective Somerset, who may be one of the first men in mainstream cinema that dares to ask why we easily dismiss serial killers as lunatics.

Cria um mundo opressivo, cinza e angustiante que parece determinado a constantemente lembrar seus ocupantes de que a vida Ú cruel, injusta e sem sentido.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
March 12, 2015
After 20 years and countless copycats, hasn't lost any of its unnerving, devastating nihilistic power.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
March 25, 2014
Although the story isn't original, it's powerfully directed by David Fincher, and Morgan Freeman gives another of his superbly understated performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 25, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 25, 2014
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.

March 25, 2014
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.
March 25, 2014
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.

March 25, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
March 25, 2014
The odd thing about Seven, however, is that except for its facile, familiar and ridiculously gimmicky plot, it's a pretty involving murder mystery.
March 25, 2014
As with all the best chillers, the real horror is left unseen and to the viewers' imagination.

March 25, 2014
For all of the portentous atmosphere, Seven runs on a routine cop-show plot.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 24, 2013
The movie is riveting in a gut-twisting way, but I, myself, would not call it "entertaining."
July 24, 2013
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.
October 24, 2012
... An unrelenting examination of the evil that may or may not be festering inside every one of us.

February 23, 2012
An intensely claustrophobic, gut-wrenching thriller.
January 1, 2011
Grim, slick, shocking thriller. Older teens only.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 30, 2010
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.
