The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
It's intriguing, appalling, savvy, nasty, grossly unsettling -- you may not like what you see, but you'll definitely be affected by the sight.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
A dark, grisly, horrifying and intelligent thriller.
75
This homicide thriller has a tantalizingly morbid atmosphere of unease.

ReelViews
While Seven lacks the cleverness of the superior "Usual Suspects," it's strong enough to hold its own against most other thrillers.

Rolling Stone
It's not the identity of the killer that gives Seven its kick -- it's the way Fincher raises mystery to the level of moral provocation.
63
USA Today
Director David Fincher shovels on more gloom than even the serial killer genre can sustain in the murkily moody, but self-defeating, Seven.
60
Time
It is very tiresome peering through the gloom trying to catch a glimpse of something interesting, then having to avert one's eyes when it turns out to be just another brutally tormented body.

Film.com
Watching Seven is like cracking open a safe, only to find it crawling with eels
50
A style so chic, studied and murky it resembles a cross between a Nike commercial and a bad Polish art film.
30
The New York Times
Not even bags of body parts, a bitten-off tongue or a man forced to cut off a pound of his own flesh keep it from being dull. [22 September 1995, p. C18]
