With every murder more sordid than the previous one, nothing prepares them - or us - for the heart-pulsating shocker at the end, when the contents of that box made John Doe into one of the most notorious on-screen villains

Worth seeing if you can look past the gruesome details.

The stormy, sooty, blackened unnamed city in David Fincher's murder mystery feels a little like hell-infested with cretins, sinners, and pretty boys with a death wish-and that sure makes me think Se7en is one of the foremost horror movies of modern times.

It's about magnitudes of corruptibility and fallibility, how we all fall prey to them and yet, so we hope, press on. Watching as a teenager in 1995, I felt the fear of what could test me. Today, I watch and fear that I've not yet really been tested.

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 é cruel, injusta e sem sentido.

After 20 years and countless copycats, hasn't lost any of its unnerving, devastating nihilistic power.

Although the story isn't original, it's powerfully directed by David Fincher, and Morgan Freeman gives another of his superbly understated performances.
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.
March 25, 2014
Seven is a work of extraordinary style, upsetting power and narrative daring.
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.
July 24, 2013
The movie is riveting in a gut-twisting way, but I, myself, would not call it "entertaining."
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.
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.
November 11, 2008
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.
April 28, 2008
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.
