Seven Pounds – Revised

Opens December 19th: Will Smith plays an IRS agent given the opportunity to change the lives of certain individuals to redeem himself. From watching the trailer pre-opening I was actually touched by what I saw so far. However, after seeing it in the theatre I was extremely disappointed with the plot. The movie has a slow start, not making too much sense. It drags on throughout as well, trying to tell a story of a miserable man, who killed his fiance and a van full of people while driving and text messaging. He decides he is going to commit suicide in order to give back to a handful of worthy people his vital organs as a means of redeeming himself. I think I would have preferred it if he was dying of some incurable ailment rather than suicide and what a dreadful death he faced in order to accomplish his task. It was a total disappointment for me to see this movie. It was too much like I am Legend and the acting wasn’t all that convincing. Bypass this movie all together.

  1. This should be one of the biggest movies this winter, why? very simple… we can all relate to it. Just think of the un-intentional impact you have had in the lives of others; Now imagine if you could intentionally do things to change others’ lives for the better. GREAT concept huh? I’m looking forward to seeing this movie, I think it’ll challenge my brain and actually make me think about not only mine but others’ lives also.
