Top Serial Killer Movie
Somerset, (Morgan Freeman) a deeply Intellectual Detective, with barely
a week left until his retirement and Mills, (Brad Pitt) the new cop in
town, who is a pretty weak detective, are thrown together to
investigate what at first appears to be another Homicide.
After a second Victim is found, Somerset realises that this is no open
and shut case, and requests that he is relieved, in light of his
impending retirement. Mills gladly takes over the case and plunges
himself in way over his head.
As the work of a Crimally insane genius continues, Mills grows more and
more erratic, and Somerset simply has to remain, to guide his young
partner through the case, which ultimately leads to one of the finest
climax's in movie history.
With Wonderful Performances from both Freeman and Pitt and a really
dark and morbid direction from David Fincher, the movie is crammed with
suspense, intrigue and Excitement.
My Favourite scene is John Doe (Kevin Spacey) tearing into Mills in the
car, driving towards the Climax, the acting is simply perfect as Pitt's
character is torn apart by the genius of the Criminally insane, and
Freeman interjects with insightful rationality, demonstrating his
superior mind. The Scene Carries such intensity, and at the same time
encapsulates the primary characters basic elements. Most actors can't
achieve this level of character depth, but these are three of the
finest actors of our time. 9/10
