#54: Seven

Staring a young and sexy Morgan Freeman, “Seven” follows a veteran detective and his forgettable partner Brad Pitt as they hunt down a serial killer in a city that is always experiencing rain.

From IMDB: “Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives.” Isn’t that what I just said?
