In this film, David Fincher invites his audience to go through with 2 detectives in a murder case with a unique motive. This second film from David Fincher is set places in a Metro city that always happens a criminal case every day. You will feel a sensation of how a mystery movie with a thriller genre that is very tense and full of a puzzle. With a background sound from Howard Shore’s, opening credit course features some disturbing pictures that are very annoying but make it interesting to see. Previously, David Fincher had directed Alien 3 movie from a series called Alien.
“Se7en,” tells Detective Mills (Brad Pitt) was transferred in a case to help Detective Somerset (Morgan Freeman) deal with a serial murder case. In a first murder, a prosecutor was murdered by leaving Greed’s writings. Until the next case, Somerset investigated a house of previous homicide victims and found Gluttony’s writing inside the house. The facts revealed that Somerset believes that this serial killing will continue in the future even though he also always gave up when he got a point that could end the case.
With the cinematography created in this film, the atmosphere of the place in this movie has a very dark impression with combined by a weather that often rains make that looks like a cursed city for its many criminals who always happen. I can say that this movie is not like the movies of the 90s, even this looks like a movie that existed in the year 2010’s. Screenplay written in this movie is also one of why this film is very interesting to watch that take a theme story from Seven Deadly Sins. The audience will be asked how a puzzle that often appears will be so curious when watched.
This film also takes a story material that is always associated with the number 7. In this film, we will often see a concept that often links literature works, books about murder like In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. This is what makes this film reinforces the impression of the existing thriller. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are the actors who build the atmosphere of this movie and getting better. Unexpectedly if they both play together in this movie, nothing is too prominent because they both play a balanced role.
If it is associated with other David Fincher movies, many say that this film is a bit reminiscent of a thriller film titled Gone Girl. Although I have never fully watched Gone Girl, some say that these two films are almost identical let alone the psychopaths that exist in both these movies always make the audience was surprised because of it. Kevin Spacey that play in this movie also great that before he cast some thriller genre film entitled The Usual Suspect.
If you see the ending of this film, Fincher makes the audience tense because it makes the ending so dramatic and the ending which is a plot-twist. Mills will be in a situation where he will win or lose by the game of the psychopath made. It’s a bit hard to explain in detail but this will impact the spoiler for those who haven’t watched it yet. But, I will admit that the ending in this movie is made great and make us admire the ending.
Overall, I just didn’t think that this movie was made in the 90’s. If I watch it again, this movie just looks like the movies now look more fresh and smooth. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are two great actors in this movie. Do you like the movie made by David Fincher? You guys will love this movie. In fact, thriller movie fans also know that this movie is good to watch.
