When city police find a murder victim who was somehow forced to die of overeating, it puts veteran Detective William Sommerset and his new, talented but still green partner, Detective David Mills, on a desperate hunt for a serial killer who is making statements by staging his victims as tableaus of the Seven Deadly Sins. The first corpse found was “Gluttony,” and soon the detectives find more: a lawyer killed because of his Greed; an insurance scammer killed for his Sloth; a fashion model killed for her Pride. Each murder scene is elaborately planned, the victims chosen specifically because of who they are, and posed methodically in death. With time running out for the last two possible victims -- Envy and Wrath -- can Sommerset and Mills get ahead of the killer before his final two acts come to deadly fruition? Starring Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, Gwyneth Paltrow and R. Lee Ermey. Directed by Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominee David Fincher.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The crime scenes are rendered in sickening detail, and the whole film has a murky, madly pretentious tone.
Fresh: Seven wants to abrade, not ingratiate.
Fresh: Focus, Freeman and film craft make Seven difficult to dismiss as a stylish exercise, but employing this grisly subject matter for an exercise of any kind is a queasy way to go.
Fresh: An intensely claustrophobic, gut-wrenching thriller.
Why the hell is the climax, the VERY LAST SCENE OF THE MOVIE, the first thing you see on the Se7en iTunes page. Thought that was funny. Good movie. Meh.
Probably not a good idea to have chosen that banner for this page....
I saw this in the theatre with my brother and was blown away. It is Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt at their absolute best. The plot is detailed, but not hard to follow, with a fantastic twist at the end that will leave you totally shocked. I don't buy many movies - i prefer to rent - but this is one that I own. If you like Memento, The Usual Suspects or other intelligent films, this is a must see. Trust me on this one.
