Homicide detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) has just seven days left to retirement when he is paired with his brash replacement David Mills (Brad Pitt). The pair investigate the murder of a man who has been force-fed until he burst, then that of a rich lawyer made to cut a pound of flesh from his own body and consequently bled to death. The fact that the word 'greed' is written in blood on the carpet leads Somerset to speculate that they are dealing with a serial killer who is using the seven deadly sins as a blueprint.
The most viscerally frightening and disturbing homicidal maniac picture since The Silence of the Lambs, Seven is based on an idea that's both gruesome and ingenious. A serial killer forces each of his victims to die by acting out one of the seven deadly sins. The murder scene is then artfully arranged into a grotesque tableau, a graphic illustration of each mortal vice. From the jittery opening credits to the horrifying (and seemingly inescapable) concluding twist, director David Fincher immerses us in a murky urban twilight where everything seems to be rotting, rusting, or moulding; the air is cold and heavy with dread. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are the detectives who skillfully track down the killer--all the while unaware that he has been closing in on them, as well. Gwyneth Paltrow and Kevin Spacey are also featured, but it is director Fincher and the ominous, overwhelmingly oppressive atmosphere of doom that he creates that are the real stars of the film. It's a terrific date movie--for vampires. --Jim Emerson, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

This 'two disc set' is in my eyes a major disappointment for a film of Seven's magnitude. The special features are awkwardly displayed and takes a bit of getting used to. The deleted scenes are OK but like most films, it is obvious why they were not included in the final cut. I always look for a comprehensive documentary in such an edition, but sadly it does not arrive. Plus-points are the picture and sound transfer is top notch; you will think it is raining outside! This does not compensate however for a two disc set which is nowhere near as good as it could have been.
Seven is one of the most chilling and exciting films to grace the screen, and for this it deserves to be part of any DVD collection out there. Along with Fight Club, it ranks as David Fincher's greatest achievement. I have gave it five stars for the film itself, not for the package. You could almost fit the entire features and the film itself into a solitary disc.
We are presented with a vision of a city that is so bleak and cruel that no one ever mentions its name. Two detectives--the cynical older detective (Freeman) and the ambitious young detective (Pitt)--are investigating the vilest series of murders that a cinema-going public can cope with. Each murder is based on one of the seven deadly sins everything from greed to, tragically at the climax of the film, wrath. Be thankful for one thing--that these murders were never shown to us; all we see is the bloody aftermath of these violent and unthinkable crimes. This is the master stroke of the film, for it catapults it from a gory slasher flick into cinematic art. It is a bleak, terrifying vision of the world we live in, and leaves you thinking, even hoping, that this is entirely a tale of fiction and such a place does not exist.
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.

Confronting the 'seven deadly sins' serial killer, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman give superb performances as the two detectives at opposite ends of their life journeys. Pitt is the idealistic, testosterone-charged young man who believes his actions can make a difference. Freeman brilliantly captures the world-weary fatigue and disillusionment of a similar man, 30 years down the line. But it's the chilling character of John Doe, the killer (and the actor who plays him) which will stay with you for years. JD appears on screen for the shortest of time, yet he's the quiet, psychopathic driving force behind it all.
Director David Fincher crafts a superb mystery, some genuinely ghastly moments and a massive emotional wallop.
Gripping, disturbing and effective - still a film worth every minute.

A film deserving of the term 'classic' and arguable one of the best serial killer thrillers ever made. The last 10 minutes are some of the most tense of any I can remember.Published 22 days ago by doc down under
