Although this is portrayed often as a horror film, this thriller kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire movie. I don’t often consider Brad Pitt to be a highly skilled dramatic actor but in this masterwork he almost overshadows the great Morgan Freeman.
An oldie, but a goldie. The film has a cast of many well-known actors and actresses such as Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacy and Gweneth Paltrow. The film is filled with suspense from start to finish and follows the murders of 7 people who the killer deems 'sinful' by the 7 deadly sins. It is one of the best police dramas and is rather gruesome, so I wouldn't recommend watching if you're slightly squeamish. However, if you don't mind this, the film is extremely clever and doesn't have a conventional ending as well, which I love.
