The film title is explained by the subject of the film: it is a thriller about a murderer who wants to better the world by showing mankind that they should pay more attention to their actions in life, for the SEVEN deadly sins, as described in the Bible aren’t paid any attention to at all. The movie as a whole is dark and rainy, clouds hang over the city it all takes place in, it’s a grim and nameless city. There is a lot of blood and other disgusting material on the screen during this movie, sometimes it scared the crap out of me (and it scared the character as well).

When the movie starts we are introduced to detective Summerset (Morgan Freeman) and detective Mills (Brad Pitt), Mills has just been re-assigned to the district were Summerset has been working for a long time. There is a new case for Summerset, a man has been fed to death and his stomach has exploded. The problem is that detective Summerset has just 5 days left at the corps, and Mills is just a rookie, so they both don't get the case. But Summerset is by far the best detective around and he can’t just let go on this one, neither can Mills.

Another body is found, the word “greed” is written in blood on the floor, Mills gets the case, meanwhile Summerset gets some clues on the last body, he finds the word “gluttony” behind the refrigerator and a note containing the sentence “long is the way, and hard, that out of hell leads to light” from the book “paradise lost” written by Millton, it’s about the seven deadly sins, so Summerset tells his boss about the note, and he and Mills get the case after all. So now their out to stop the other 5 murders from happening...

Tension gets high as more victims are found dead, one body is found lying on a bed and at first they think the man is dead, but then he screams out and tries to get up. In fact the man had been tortured by the murderer for exactly one year, he had been beaten, poisoned, starved and more. The man is taken to the hospital and the doctor tells Mills the man had been in more pain then anyone he had ever seen, the man is really a horrible sight...

Then Summerset asks an informant of the FBI for some help finding clues in an illegal way. Officially they can’t ask for it because then they wouldn’t be able to win the case because of evidence that they can’t present. The FBI has a certain list of books witch have special labels on them, if any of those books are rented at a library the information about that person goes directly to the FBI, so now Summerset and Mills get that info for the book "paradise lost" and some other books that have to deal with the seven sins. They find out that a certain man has been reading exactly the right books and he's called John Doe, they go to his apartment and when they knock on his door, a man suddenly starts running at the end of the hallway, they start the pursuit but he eventually escapes anyway.

They enter his apartment, although they know any evidence they find can’t be used for their case against the killer, for if they had worked legally they wouldn't have any information about John Doe in the first place. It’s immediately clear that they are in the right house, books and pictures everywhere about the murders. After a while they get a call, and it’s the killer himself telling Mills that he admires him and Summerset for finding him so quickly.

The next day another murder occurs, the victims crime was “pride”. But soon after the murder happens John Doe, the killer gives himself in. Mills and Summerset can’t believe it because he has just killed 5 people and not 7. John Doe tells them if they come with him he will show them the two other bodies and he will then sign a full confession that he killed all 7 persons.

Mills and Summerset go with Doe, he tells them why he is doing it, he tells them that people will remember him, Mills and Summerset afterwards and he says that what he is doing is just setting an example for the world. He takes them to a place in the middle of nowhere and they walk a little bit. Then Summerset sees a car coming their way, he starts running towards it, telling it to stop. It’s a mail-van that is bringing a package to Doe.

Summerset opens the package and starts yelling and running towards Mills, meanwhile John Doe is talking to Mills, saying how much he admires him AND HIS WIFE, when he says that Mills is angered and starts yelling “WHAT YOU FUCKING SAY?” and he understands that he killed his wife. Doe tells him “i came into your house and tried to live the life of a normal man, it didn’t work out... so i took a souvenir... her pretty little head”. So the in the box Summerset found was the head of Mills’s wife, which is the 6th victim. Also Mills’s wife was pregnant, and he didn’t know. The baby also died, and Doe tells him that, and he starts laughing when he sees in Mills’s face that he didn’t know. Summerset had told Mill's wife that she shouldn't tell him she was pregnant because that would influence his work. Mills then starts to cry but he also wants to shoot Doe in the head. Summerset is trying to calm mills down, telling him this is just what Doe wants to happen, he WANTS to get killed because that would be the 7th sin... “Wrath”. Eventually Mills gives in, shoots John Doe in the head and walks away... So eventually there where 8 murders.

The movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen, the acting is great, Freeman is one of my favourite actors and the same goes for Kevin Spacey and Brad Pitt. Kevin Spacey was definitely the best casting they could do, he can play the sick bastard exactly as he should be played. Freeman of course is a great and nice detective. The dark, rainy and clouded city also gives a very good setting for the murder scene. The ending of the film is VERY surprising and the movie itself is very entertaining and scary, the sometimes horrible pictures are in no way making the movie less attractive.
