Product Description

Academy Award® nominee Will Smith (2006, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, The Pursuit of Happyness) stars as Ben Thomas, a man at a crossroads searching for a way to redeem his heavy conscience. He discovers he has the power to change the circumstances of seven strangers who deserve a second chance. But when one of them captures his heart, he must decide if he should reveal his secret -- even if it means giving up on his plan. From the creators of The Pursuit of Happyness, SEVEN POUNDS is an "emotionally charged, captivating mystery with a soulful, tender love story and a tearful but joyfully inspiring ending" (MOVIEGUIDE®).

Amazon.com

The mysteriously titled Seven Pounds stars Will Smith as Ben Thomas, who flashes his badge as an IRS agent to gain entrance into the lives of seven strangers in need. To each, he offers something that will reverse their troubles, seeking to atone for a haunting past mistake. But when Ben starts falling in love with a young woman with heart trouble (Rosario Dawson), his carefully laid plans threaten to collapse. To reveal more of the story would diminish it. Smith is an engaging, charismatic presence, but the impact of Seven Pounds comes from Dawson--she has the kind of emotional transparency that shimmers off the screen. Which is crucial, because Seven Pounds requires considerable suspension of disbelief; some scenes push and pull at plausibility, and you may question a few plot turns after the movie is over. But as the story unfolds, the performances can carry you over these bumps. If you surrender to its gently circling rhythms and its luminous images (including the glowing undulations of a poisonous jellyfish), Seven Pounds will pack an emotional wallop, heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. Also featuring Barry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan), Michael Ealy (Sleeper Cell), and Woody Harrelson. --Bret Fetzer

By Craig Connell on April 9, 2009
Format: 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.

Seven Pounds is an outstanding and very UNDER RATED movie. Those who didn't like this movie probably have a limited understanding of what it means to show compassion towards other people. From the special features commentary, that came with the DVD, the movie's concept was mildly based on an actual event. Seven Pounds has to be watched, not from a critical eye as to whether this movie achieved this or that, but, from the point of view of someone who is telling their story and you are the viewer. If you ignore the few negative reviews, and enjoy the movie for the compassionate theme it's portraying, you will have a better appreciation for life that transcends the daily problems we sometimes face. The chemistry between Will Smith and Rosario Dawson was great. The movie flowed well; and, the accompanying music enhanced the essence of the feelings being conveyed. If you haven't seen this movie yet, don't let the trailer (for this movie) mislead you; the movie is not as suspenseful as it is made out to be; Seven Pounds is more about Love and Compassion. I hope you enjoy the movie!!!

I grew up watching Will Smith on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, so he's a familiar face that I enjoy seeing. I truly think he's at his best in the drama category. His has such a soothing quality to him that can speak volumes in a couple words or a look. No one else could have played an IRS agent that doesn't immediately get a door slammed in their face.

For once, the plot was not spoiled before I could watch this movie on DVD. Usually you can't help but hear all about it before you see it. So I went into this knowing nothing, and while it's not completely surprising how it unfolds, it works in an amazing way.

For some, they will have a very large, elephant in the room problem with a film that concerns suicide(don't worry, not spoiling for you...this is the opening scene). This is a movie that develops like a symphony, slowly building before you. It will break your heart, but let you see that some people do have the best of intentions. They're willing to sacrifice more then you'd think.

Others have complained its "slow" or "boring". I believe 'seven pounds' is for those who like subtlety and things to think about. They don't give you all the information to figure out the story immediately.

I watched slumdog millionaire right before this, and honestly, thought this was stunningly better and I'm really shocked it wasn't nominated for an oscar. This would have been my personal choice for best film of the year.

Also, as I will always mention - finally, some good special features!! I love behind the scenes stuff, or the writers talking about how the story came to them. There is all that and more.

If you live in the safety of a 6 sided box, preferring to view the world only as you want it be, leave this one on the shelf. Many of the poor reviews are by morally constrained people who refuse to accept that humanity exists beyond their own perceptions. 7 pounds pokes into dark corners that people normally would not willingly consider looking at. Will Smith displayed diversity in a mature roll delivering a strong performance. There are a few typical Hollywood inaccuracies but what story doesn't have them; 90% of viewers wouldn't recognize them anyway.

I gave this movie 5 stars because it was delivered well and challenged me mentally and emotionally.

I will not lie..this movie is really freaking sad. If you are already depressed, this is not the movie you want to see. But, If you are the kind of person that likes good to watch good performances this movie is one to see. Now first people have to understand that this movie is not really about suicide. This movie is about more than that. It is about the toll guilt can take on a person and the power of love that can lead to redemption. Will Smith and Rosario Dawson have great chemestry together. They take you on a journey from guilt to redemption. Great performances by great actors.
