4.0 out of 5 stars Mysterious Movie Will Leave You Thinking, April 9, 2009
This review is from: Seven Pounds (DVD)
You spend most of this two-hour film wondering "what's the story
regarding the lead character?"

Will Smith, as a low-key "Ben Thomas" will keep you guessing. The last
20-25 minutes is when you find out, and it's a shocker....but you knew
something dramatic was going to be revealed. Until then, Smith, plays
it mysterious, almost stalking people. You know he has a good reason
for doing it, but it's never really explained, once again, to keep us
guessing until the end.

All of it, including a on again/off again but touching romance with
Rosario Dawkins ("Emily Posa") might make some viewers frustrated or
wanting to quit this film.....but don't because the final long segment
puts all the pieces of this puzzle together.

This is a two-hour film and not the typical action-packed macho Will
Smith film. In fact, the most shocking aspect might be seeing the
drawn, sad face of Smith throughout this story. It almost doesn't even
look like him in a number of shots. He looks like he's lost weight and
is sick. Smith does a great job portraying a man carrying around a lot
of sadness.

Like a good movie will often do, this film will leave you thinking long
after the ending credits.
