Seven Pounds (2008)

  • Conclusion: Will Smith has been on a tear of leading in movies of late--even for his busy schedule. Like many of his attempts at serious roles, Seven Pounds falls flat for me, but it's not Smith's fault.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'Seven Pounds' is a frustrating and often overbearing drama. I like Will Smith, and I like the idea of the story, but the movie veers into such maudlin, heavy-handed and sometimes just plain unbelievable territory it can't escape the whiff of major disappointment.

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Will Smith has earned box office capital, and he intends to spend it. The last movie star in America, the only one reliably capable of opening a movie at #1, has taken on increasingly odd projects in the last year, as if he's testing the limits of his own starpower.

  • Excerpt: There isn't an actor in Hollywood more image-conscious than Will Smith, and that number-crunching calculation has made him both the world's biggest star and one of its more elusive.

  • Summary: The first act of Seven Pounds is a riddling hodgepodge of non-linear narrative that attempts to create a sense of mystery. It’s also something of a first - how often is it that a film reviewer can sit through the first thirty minutes of a mainstream movie and not understand what’s happening?

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: A collage of strong scenes, dull bits, good filmmaking and a dissatisfying emotional payoff. A laudable attempt to tackle heavyweight subject-matter that ends up just being heavy weather.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
8 January 2009
  • Excerpt: "Seven Pounds" is an average movie that could have been better with a heavier hand from the editing department and a lighter touch from the director. The story, while powerful and engaging, evolves slowly, and there are too many lingering shots of the main character's pained face.
