    8 / 10
    I cannot emphasize enough just how many expectation I`ve had from "Seven". I think the entire world agreed that this is, in fact, a masterpiece.
    Well, having watched the movie for the very first time, one word comes to mind - overrated.
    The movie itself is a good thriller, I`ll give it that, but none of the so-called "cult" elements that I was expecting were actually there.
    The video transfer is very good. The colors are nicely saturated and there are no visible compression signs.
    The DTS (6.1) and DD 5.1 are both very good, too. The surrounds are constantly used and help create a very claustrophobic atmosphere.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include 4 (!) commentaries, 5 multiple angles scenes, 9 deleted scenes (including 2 alternate endings), several storyboards, a picture gallery, a behind the scenes featurette and explanations about the special effects.
    Bottom line - a good thriller and an excellent disc to match, but still - overrated.
