Fincher creates a creepy mood throughout. However, the movie does have some lighter scenes where we learn more about the main characters and how they got where they are.
As Detective Somerset, Freeman delivers yet another powerful performance. There is not a single moment when he under or over reacts. Somerset tries to remain calm and collected as he attempts to solve the case, but as time passes, he realizes that he and his partner are getting nowhere, and we start to see him losing his cool.
Although this may not be Pitt's best performance, he does make Detective Mills enjoyable to watch. There are moments when you will burst out laughing at what he says or does. He interrupts the grimness of the film, which makes him a welcome addition.
