    Intriguing Movie

    Posted

    I found the movie intriguing regarding the journey Will Smith's character chose to take to make things right after the death of his loved one. I didn't know anything about this movie with the exception of its star so I found myself wanting to know more and more as the story went on. I felt it was a very good movie which started at the end. The movie grew with the character whom I had no clue was impersonating his brother until his brother arrived. The movie evolved with the character finding people he would save as "some form of redemption". The character looked for people to receive "replacement" parts via the IRS records. He got to know the future recipients and he felt they were worthy (unbeknownest to them) of an organ, he would deliver. Some he delivered prior to death and others after death. He also gave a house to a victim of domestic violence. Like most movies, there's a love interest which developed in his quest for redemption. He didn't plan it and it was hard for him knowing his plan. Ironically, his death was via suicide. Afterwards his attorney friend delivered letters to the remaining recipients of his organs. I still can't figure out why the title is Seven Pounds. It was a very good movie that included a little humor to lighten the air of the movie.

    Touching, and heartwrenching

    Seven Pounds is fantastic entry in Will Smiths long resume of great films. Think The Pursuit of Happyness with ten times more drama. This movie was fantastic. It may seem confusing, and I'm not gonna explain it to you because it does better as a movie you know nothing about. After wondering, you figure what hes done. The Plot was well-written and really makes you think about what you can do for others. Reviewers trashed it because it was grim and morose, but its Will Smith and its a drama. What did you expect? The ending will hit you and you won't be able to stop thinking about it for a long time.... As i said its touching and heartwrenching.

    Excellent Movie

    This is one of the better movies I have seen in a long time. A real down to earth story. Very little if any cussing at all. I missed it in the theater but bought the BR disc, and was not disappointed. The transfer to BR is excellent- Colors are true and the sound quality is superb. I don't care about bonus features but this disc had a few interesting ones- The presses and the jelly fish extras are interesting. Overall an excellent movie- One of Will Smiths most memorable performances. Everyone should see this at least once!

    The main idea for the movie was a good one. I liked how he went around helping people. The ending was not a good one. I feel that if this had happened in real life that his girlfriend would of wanted to be dead like he was. If you feel the need to copy this movie in any way do not develope a relationship with the person you are going to kill your self for. Being the daughter of a man that killed himself I know that loving someone that kiles themselves is an extreamly hard thing to deal with and knowing that that person killed themselves so that you could live would make the pain all that more unbarable.

    A very interesting Disappointment in the End

    Posted

    My wife and I watched this the other night. I was expecting another "Pursuit of Happyness" instead I got Will Smith in a roll as a mysterious man trying to make a difference. He is a very compelling character and draws you into the story. You learn more about his motives through flashbacks and blips of memory. In the end the motive that drives Smith's character is completely incompatible with my personal ideology and effectivly ruined the movie for me. Without spoiling it for someone else the quote I'd use is; "The ends don't justify the means." I'll leave it at that.

    From the opening scenes to the dramatic ending, I found this film to be a very humbling and touching cinematic experience. Will Smith and Rosario Dawson are both excellent in this film. Woody Harrelson also has a memorable supporting role. If you are looking for a good drama, this film is it.

    I heard some bad things about Seven Pounds but I thought it was very very good. Will Smith is a very good actor and it shows in this movie. I think the reason most people didn't like this movie was that it was pretty sad and tragic at the end but I still think this is a very good movie.
