Promotional Lines: " Let he who is without sin try to survive."

"Gluttony * Greed * Sloth * Envy * Wrath * Pride * Lust."

"Seven deadly sins. Seven ways to die. Seven ways to kill."

The basic story, a dark masterpiece of modern horror, involves a veteran cop, Detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) who is about to retire. As he breaks-in his replacement, Detective David Mills (Brad Pitt), they both become involved into a grisly, serial killer investigation. This twisted serial killer chooses his victims from people who exemplify one of each of the seven deadly sins, as he sees himself as being the flaming sword of God, dispensing judgment on these sinners.

"Se7en" was written by Andrew Kevin Walker, a "sublime mix of madness and sanity." The screenplay shocks without being TOO gross, as the detectives play a riveting game of cat and mouse with the killer, John doe, and provides some real surprises, particularly towards the film's conclusion. Each tortured, maimed body found by the detectives fills the characters and the audience with a true, overbearing feeling of revulsion, and dread as well; for unless John Doe is caught, more bodies of people, who were horribly tortured to death will be found by our heroes.

Brad Pitt and and Morgan Freeman make a great screen team. The young hunk and the veteran character actor provide a great "union of opposites."

Kevin Spacey is quietly intense as the literate, intelligent killer, John Doe. "Wanting people to listen, you can't just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you'll notice you've got their strict attention." This talented actor brings much to this portrayal of this criminally insane character, who acts out his delusions on his victims.

As Pitt's young wife, Tracy Miller, Gwyneth Paltrow is beautiful and sympathetic, giving a performance that complements Brad Pitt's character.

My favorite scene takes place in and around the killer's apartment building. It's an exciting, pulse pounding, very well edited sequence.

Director of Photography Darius Khondji presents dark and disturbing screen image. The world depicted is frequently somber and bleak, and sometimes nightmarish and hellish.

While Se7en is a modern horror thriller done extremely well, one must have the stomach for it, and may not be suitable for people sensitive to horror, gross scenes, and scripts that aren't uplifting.

If you enjoyed "Se7en" you may like "Silence of the Lambs," "Klute," "Manhunter," "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," "Bullitt", "A River Runs Through It," "Outbreak," "Legends of the Fall," and/or "Unforgiven."
