ldh's review

After Seven, which left most of its audience reeling with an ending that functioned as a punch to the gut, David Fincher followed with a much more subdued affair. What it lacks in blood and guts however, it gained in finesse because the ending here is equally punchy and emotional, without the visceral effect of gore. Michael Douglas should have won an Oscar for this role as it anchors the film so perfectly: it's him, combined with flawless writing, that builds the film up until its marvelous ending.
