Worth seeing if you can look past the gruesome details.
March 25, 2014
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.
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.

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 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.

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

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

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.
February 23, 2012
An intensely claustrophobic, gut-wrenching thriller.
April 28, 2008
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.
