The Movie: Seven Pounds

The Basics: A man (Will Smith) is who decides to change the lives of seven people. One of those people he decides to help is Emily (Rosario Dawson) who has a heart condition but he also falls in love with her. I should note that I started this movie about 7 minutes in so I don’t know if I missed anything important.

The Good: Will Smith, in my opinion, is just about always great. He’s got this great mixture of dramatic and comedic that seems to always be prevalent. He was charming and just wonderful to watch on screen. His chemistry with Dawson worked extraordinarily well. The movie itself was great, I enjoyed it and wanted to know where it was going, although I had a rought idea pretty early on of the direction it was going. I did however cry like a baby at the end but I always cry.

The Bad: Did this movie thrill me to the bones? No. Did something always feel missing somehow? Yes, but I can’t pinpoint it. Was the ending a little on the dramatic side? Yeah, it was.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

    I read a ton of bad reviews for this movie. It surprises me that you liked it, given the lack of Kevin.

    Rosario Dawson can carry chemistry all by herself. I think she did it in Clerks II. On the other hand, I wonder if Benjamin Bratt is gay. He’s a good actor (great in The Woodsman), but every time he plays a leading man the chemistry is always lacking.

    I also think Will Smith is a great actor, but when I saw the commercials for this movie, I couldn’t figure out what it was about. And for some reason, it didn’t seem all that interesting to me.
