"We see a deadly sin on every street corner, in every home, and we tolerate it. We tolerate it because it's common. It's trivial. Well not anymore. I'm setting the example." -John Doe
It's a mystery, it's dark, it's disgusting...Seven is one of the most disturbing movies i've ever seen, with a shocking ending and a familiar face ;)
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.
Still to come a serial killer movie better than this one!
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.
it was very hilarious, amusing
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.
Films should be well written, well acted, well written. This film is all three. The fact that it gets all these right is extremely welcome, perhaps even more so now, than when it was received back in 1995.
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.
Excellent thriller. Even if you "know" the ending... you still feel that hole in your stomach watching the last 30 minutes of this movie. One of those movies you need to see.
David Fincher já chegou colocando o pé na mesa e falando "follow this, you bitches". I heart Se7en.
"It's impressive to see a man feeding off his emotions."
Better than I expected, but softer too. A bit too simple to figure out because of a very focused action, but still very enjoyable to watch.

I might have laughed at this movie but the grey mise en scene of this movie is just too great. and I am just a sucker for it.
This is the type of movie that people who argue against the necessity of a good script to create a watchable film would like: direction (and lighting and set design and acting etc.; basically: direction) makes this watchable.
The Sloth victim is the stuff of nightmares.
Not a huge fan, predictable ending with simple acting. Nice added surprise with Kevin Spacey.
This movie probably deserves more than 9/10 (IMHO)
The only thing I can say about this movie: fucking good.
What happened to Fincher...
I'm quite late for this movie but now I see why people love it so much. My hat to you, Fincher!
i think that john doe was on to something.
