SUPER=18-"Seven"/New Line Cinema; :
RUNS=:08
OUT Q=is totally insane.


They're NOT exactly Friday and Gannon.
Morgan Freeman is Somerset, the old timer who is literate, intelligent, and burned out.
Pitt is Detective Mills, his replacement. He's new to the force that patrols these mean streets.
Gyneth Paltrow plays Mill's sensitive wife...not exactly a tough role.
In "Seven", a grossly fat man is found murdered. Somerset catches on early that a serial killer is at work basing his grisly crimes on Milton's list of the seven deadly sins.
The clinical way the movie shows the murder scenes makes them all the more horrible.
'Seven's suspense is relentless. The cinematography is great and Kevin Spacey is the scariest psychopath since Hannibel Lechter.
This harrowing and stunning film gets an "A-". But it's not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach.
