Here's a gritty, grimy action thriller starring Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt as detectives Somerset and Mills, a veteran and a rookie chasing a serial killer whose victims tie to the seven deadly sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride).
It's a dark and analytical chase, with a few intense bursts of action, and plenty of crime scene footage. The scenes are brutal, the plot delves into the darkest parts of the human psyche and brings out a batter of that substance and bleeds a trail, in lack of clues, towards the not very uplifting ending of the movie.
I've seen this one before too. Can't remember if I thought the same then as I do now, but it was good. Not good as in pleasant or inspiring, but as in authentic, and captivating. You can't let go of the red thread once you pick this one up, and it's a heavy ride all the way till the end.
