Odd, Yet Maybe Amazing?

Will Smith is an incredible multi-talented actor. He had the ability to transform any role into something amazing. With that being said, I much prefer seeing him in the big blockbusters. As far the film itself, it has the ability to be great, but falls short because there are some major things that are left unexplained. It was hard to find the connection between Smith and the other characters. Also, the lie he told everyone throughout the film remained unexplained as well. The movie has a tendency to get boring at times, but its manageable to sit through to the end, especially if you are looking to make sense of some of the confusion that goes on for a good hour and a half. Overall, this isn't the worst film I've seen. I wouldn't recommend it, but I wouldn't tell anyone not to watch it ei...

Seven Pounds worth every penny!

This film was the best I have ever seen Will Smith in. I am disappointed that Will Smith isn't in the nominations for an Oscar.

This film is a masterpiece in cinema, with the same director and production team as Pursuit of happiness Will Smith is breath taking, the plot was genius and the casting perfect.

when I go to the cinema I always crave for a gripping opening sequence and that's what I got with this film. I am very cynical when it comes to actors performances, but the chemistry between Will Smith and Rosairo Dawson spilled from the screen into the audience of the theater I felt a connection with the characters and If you don't shed a tear at this film your a corpse. I looked around after the film had finished and saw 15 stone plus men wiping their eyes with a soggy sleeve....

The saddest thing is

Let me just start off by saying this movie is unexpectedly brilliant. I was definitely enthralled by Will Smithís performance and in my opinion he was undoubtedly at his best. His acting is just so real you kind of become so emotionally attached to his character. I can definitely see an Oscar nod in the near future for how amazingly beautiful this movie has become because of him. Also worth mentioning the chemistry between Will and Rosario, itís like they have this unspoken connection mere words can't describe it. The supporting cast also performed exceptionally well, specially a blind Woody Harrelson. What I didn't worked for me on the other hand was when Iím about 30 minutes into it I still am wondering what the heck is going on. Maybe itís because the style of filming is in reverse and...

Can "Good Deeds" Make Up for Past Mistakes?

(Minor spoilers in the review)

Calling to mind 21 Grams and I Am Legend, this movie is pretty good, but never does it break as much ground as Memento or Pulp Fiction. Overall, pretty good performances by Woody Harrelson, Will Smith, and Rosario Dawson. There are a few "how is that possible" moments in the script which could easily be justified by the screenwriter, such as how did he meet the people he's trying to help or regarding the complication due to the jellyfish infecting its victim.

I would say that the movie is entertaining and that if you can ignore some of these perceived flaws, it would be a great movie to see for the holiday season. The ending is sort of bittersweet and the film itself is not for those who can't handle a non-linear story at all. It's the kind of movi...
