Detectives Somerset, who’s only days away from retirement, and the new to the force, hot headed, Mills, are trying to track down a serial killer. As the grisly death toll rises, the killer, who bases each murder victim based on one of the seven deadly sins, always seems to be one calculated step ahead of them. As they slowly begin to unravel the mystery, they’ll learn that they’re part of the killer’s ultimate plan. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for in “Se7en”.

· The Police Captain walks into Somerset’s office. The close-up of the door as George is scraping off the name shows “Detective Some” is still visible on glass as he’s working on the “R”. As the door opens, the lettering has changed with more letters to Somerset’s name.

· Somerset gets in the cab on the way to the library. The driver asks where he’s headed, and the close-up of Somerset shows his shirt is striped. He arrives at the library and after he takes off his coat, Somerset’s shirt is complete white, with no stripes.

· Mills walks into his new office, carrying a box. He sets the box at the corner of the desk. The phone is in front of the box, straight on the desk. Mills put the cliff notes in the drawer and, in the close-up view as he starts to sit, the phone is angles toward the left. It cuts to a view of Somerset and back to Mills, and the phone is angled toward the right. The phone changes position again, toward the left, when it starts to ring. Mill positions it when he picks up the receiver. It’s straight again when Somerset starts to talk to Tracy.

· Somerset and Mills return to the Greed victim’s office. Somerset climbs on the table and starts dusting the wall for fingerprints. The close-up of the glove covered hand with the brush shows he’s using his right hand. It cuts to a farther view and Somerset is using his left hand.

“Se7en” (1995) stars Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow, R. Lee Ermey, John c. McGinley, and Kevin Spacey. It runs 127 minutes and is rated R for grisly afterviews of horrific and bizarre killings, and for strong language.
