About the Movie
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: It's not the identity of the killer that gives Seven its kick -- it's the way Fincher raises mystery to the level of moral provocation.
Fresh: An intensely claustrophobic, gut-wrenching thriller.
Fresh: The movie is riveting in a gut-twisting way, but I, myself, would not call it "entertaining."
One of the best movies of all time
Seven was misunderstood when it was first released but is now regarded as a modern classic. Rightfully so, because the acting, direction, and cinematography are all top notch. You are not a movie-lover if you haven't seen this movie.
"What's in the box...?"
This movie is dark, disturbing and twisted. It was thought provoking and well written. You do not see the twist come until it is upon you. All three lead actors are immense in their roles. While not a happy movie, it is an awesome movie. Buy it.
One of the best movies ever!!
I have probably seen this movie dozens of times thru the years, but it never gets old.
Dark, twisted, rainy, scary, well written, top notch acting...
Definitely worth $10, I would personally pay more if need be, it's THAT good.
