One week before his retirement, detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) gets a new case to investigate together with his apprentice David Mills (Brad Pitt). A gruesome serial killer is reigning the streets and each murder he does is inspired by one of the seven deadly sins, meaning that Somerset and Mills will have to catch the killer before he has committed his seven murders.
Sound and Vision:
The Blu-ray transfer RCV provides us is really a good one. The aspect ratio is the one the movie is originally shot with (unlike in some other regions) and although the movie looks a bit grainy, the scenes at the ending show that this is intentionally done and not a problem of the transfer. The contrast and level of detail are as they should and compression errors are completely absent.
The sound comes only in a DTS-HD track so if you don’t have a decoder for that you can just leave this one laying on store shelves. However, if your amplifier can work with DTS it’s definitely a good track.
RCV goes for budget with this release. There are no extras present and even only one audio track. However, what you get is of almost perfect quality (not that Seven is a movie that’s suitable for showing off your TV or home theater system).
The movie is still a classic and if you’ve got DTS capability and got a big flatscreen I can only recommend this release. Especially as you don’t have to pay additional money for extras you’ll just check out once. Good stuff!
