Dark, disturbing and occasionally gory, Seven is a psychological thriller that is among the bleakest films in mainstream cinema history.

Far from your standard thriller, Se7en explores the darkest recesses of humanity and provides elucidating details about morality and vengeance. The film's understated cast does well with the noir material, but its Kevin Spacey's unsettlingly calm villain who steals every scene in the most chilling of ways.

What makes Se7en so brilliant is because at the time of release, no one expecting it to be any good.
In fact, a lot of people were anticipating it to be terrible, and then David Fincher and Andrew Kevin Walker's genius traits did the magic, and every mouth dropped.

A film about solving a gruesome murder using the 7 deadly sins (each victim symbolizes gluttony, greed, pride, sloth, lust, envy, and wrath). The retiring Detective William R. Somerset (Morgan Freeman) teams up with the up and comer cocky cop David Mills (Brad Pitt). Detective Somerset is invited to meet David’s wife Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow) and eventually informs him of plans of having an abortion. William consoles Tracy by doing the best thing by not informing her husband, and to “soil the child every chance you get” if she decides to keep it. John Doe, the criminal mastermind, eventually surrenders himself at a police station. Great lines from the picture: William Somerset – “Ernest Hemingway once wrote: "The world is a fine place, and worth fighting for." I agree with the second …
