About this movie

"Nothing wrong with a man taking pleasure in his work. I won't deny my own personal desire to turn each sin against the sinner." Gluttony, greed, sloth, envy, wrath, pride, lust - everyone has a sin. For detectives William Somerset and David Mills they live among these sins, everyday, a crumbling city of crime all around them. But nothing can prepare the partners for the killings they are about to experience, all of which begins when they find a morbidly obese man who has died from the forced ingestion of spaghetti. What starts as one bizarre crime turns into a case of serial murders as a predator named John Doe begins to execute victims by paying homage to the "deadly sin" they represent.

Overrated. If not for Morgan Freeman's Somerset, nothing about this movie would have been tolerable. Pitts' character Mills was both insufferable and unbelievable.

Incredible Psychological thriller movie. The action is fun, the drama is high, but the script carries a darkness that gets richer with each rewatch

Long on production design and story concept; short on acting: Pitt and Paltrow miscast. Freeman, superb as usual.
