Seven is in my opinion the greatest thriller of the 90's, a disturbingly dark film which captivates its audiences and draws them into a world of evil and sin. The cast are all superb, especially the two detectives Mills and Summerset, played by the uncanny ability of Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. One a tempermental rookie, the other an aged retirement-bound cop, together they try to solve a case where a man is cruelly murdering his victims based on the seven deadly sins. This leads us to an unforgettable conclusion where all the themes of the films are intervined and drawn out with devastating power.
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.

After Legends of the Fall, Brad Pitt has been rumoured to have thrown a bit of a wobbler, wanting to be taken seriously as an actor and not just be seen as a teenage heart-throb. He cut off his blond locks and, for his next film, chose a much darker and sinister detective story that the teenage girls would have trouble getting into the cinema to see. What followed this decision is a cinematic masterpiece, a truly nightmarish tale that at times is hard to watch.

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.

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.

Watched a second time around after a two decade gap, Se7en had lost some of its original impact - but that just goes to show what a huge impression it made the first time, because many of its powerful moments sear themselves indelibly onto your memory. It's a masterful psychological thriller, bordering on horror; one which paved the way for later developments of the genre, like Hannibal and True Detective.
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.
8/10
