Tonight marks the first time I've seen this in about 3-4 years, and it lost absolutely none of the excitement I had when I first saw it. Completely riveting from start to finish and features one of my favorite endings on film.--"The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.' I agree with the second part."
Un bel film. Niente di più, niente di meno. La trama è banale, ma scorre bene ed è raccontata ottimamente, il finale è inaspettato e porta il film sopra la media, insieme al grande senso estetico che pervade la pellicola, un gusto che non viene spalmato sulle scene a caso, ma che si adagia gentilmente e quasi non si nota.
One of the darkest and greatest thrillers I have ever seen: Great acting, an amazing plot that leads to a shocking ending that really creates tension and suspense and above all an extremely original, gruesome and graphic focus on the aftermath of the killer´s murders and his modus operandi based on the Seven Deadly Sins. Check it out, great stuff.

Brilliant Fincher movie. This is one of the movies that you'll like when you first see it but will find absolutely great when you watch it a second time.
i can't bring myself to watch this one again, it really hit a nerve, and whenever i try to watch it the thought of gwen's head deters me.
This is one of those "rite of passage" films. See it when you're good and ready and once it's over, you either love it or hate it. I fall into the former category. Well-written, performed and shot, Seven has a lot going for it. What makes this more effective than something like Saw for instance is its subtlety. It just begins and it just ends and everything in between is an important shard from a complicated canvas.
Not sure how this managed to get 4 stars. Fincher starts off nicely and builds immense expectations that the ending absolutely fails to meet. The last few scenes are extremely unfortunate and disappointing. It is semi-entertaining, but not a very good film overall.
The more I think about, the more I dislike it. Though is quite enjoyable at some moments (the Deadly Sins thing and the crimes scenes really had me), the movie is kinda predictable and it's not as smart as it think it is. Also [spoiler] doesn't make any sense the fact that John Doe visit the library constantly when he had hundreds of books in his apartment. Unlikely. Imho, Seven fails where Zodiac hits.
Good film for the most part. The whole 7 Deadly Sins thing was a little overdone and obvious (you don't have to tell me who Dante and Milton are...). Morgan Freeman steals the show, Spacey is always enjoyable. I personally don't like the way the ending was done: it feels rushed and thinks it is more clever than it actually is.
