Did You Know?


Reshoots a year later caused a few unforeseen problems. One of the main ones was that 'Clifton Collins Jr' had shaved off all his hair and mustache for another role so he had to wear a wig and a false mustache for his redone scenes. See more »


In the scene where Detective R. Rodriguez (Clifton Collins Jr.) is reading "the great day of his wrath has come" from his monitor to Detective A. Breslin (both are seating at their desks), Breslin's monitor is off, yet a few seconds later you can see someone's AIM buddy list on it. See more »

7even goes emo
5 July 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

What is happening to Dennis Quaid? Seriously now, he is playing the role of the distant father more and more and he plays in worse and worse movies. I like the guy! Cast him in something decent!

As for the movie, it kind of sucked. I mean, the mythos behind the killings was shabby, the police-work ridiculous and, worst of all, I could not relate to ANY of the characters except Dennis Quaid's one... part of the time. And the casting just reveals too much.

Bottom line: if you take Seven, you make it a lot less gruesome, you add cardboard policemen and even cardboard villains, you dumb it down considerably, then you get The Horsemen. Gave it a 6 only for Zhang's efforts on speaking English.
