Hammerman Ikon

Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Director: David Fincher
Cast: Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey, R. Lee Ermey, John C. McGinley, Richard Roundtree

David Fincher's second feature is a brilliant thriller about two L.A. detectives who try to capture a serial killer who punishes his victims for seven deadly sins. The film is dark, scary, and atmospherically shot. The subversive and uncompromising script by Andrew Kevin Walker turns the genre on its head, and in the end it's not about the manhunt at all. Morgan Freeman is awesome as the older detective who is looking forward to his retirement.
