Quite possibly my favourite director at the moment, Se7en is probably his number 2 for me (Fight Club number 1). An epic movie that spawned a few wannabe's that simply utterly failed. As I watched the BD, I was quite astounded by just how much of the diaglogue has managed to lodge itself permenantly in my brain. I haven't seen it in years, yet I found myself reeling off the script quite happily. I must have seen it too many times! The maverick Pitt, legend of Freeman and Kevin Spacey in his golden era all coming together for one of cinema's greatest finale's.
As many reviewers have already said (referring to the movie itself), it's very dark and in order to create this atmosphere, lots of rain, no sunshine, plenty of close confines shots. This to me suggested that the BD was going to be a very grainy affair possible not worth replacing the DVD for. I was wrong - the grain level is low. Detail level isn't magnificient but very acceptable over the DVD. Audiowise I've always enjoyed the use of surround in Se7en, the VHS using Dolby (remember them?)Pro-Logic was great, Dolby Digital 5.1 on the DVD took it to another level with the rain effects and now the DTS-HD more adds to the DD soundtrack. It's not the same level of leap that DD from PL was but I'll take it all the same.
Overall I'll give the transfer 7.5/10, the product still gets a 5/5 though since it is Se7en which is a masterpiece.
