Format: DVD
SEVEN POUNDS was recommended to me by someone - I mentioned I had been considering seeing it for a while, and they finally pushed me into going ahead and doing it. I am very glad that I did. It is perhaps the first film in a few years which has stayed with me for longer than just the time it takes to watch the credits roll by. But to explain why it has done so may be quite hard to do - at least without giving something away.

The story follows Ben Thomas (Will Smith), a man who is wracked with guilt at things he has done in his past. Realising that he has the ability to change the lives of other people, he decides to make amends by helping seven deserving strangers. However, when he meets Emily his plans become entangled with his own emotions - as he helps her, he falls in love with her. But if he explains what brought him into her life, it could mean jeopardising his whole plan.

That is all I can say about the plot. It took a long time for me to get to grips with this film - perhaps for a good half of it, I really didn't have a clue what was going on. However, as things start to build up for the climax and what has been happening slowly becomes apparent, you understand completely. Everything falls into place, and when it does, your emotions will more than likely go through the whole spectrum that there is to feel. Although you could argue that a lot of poetic justice has had to be used for this plotline, regardless of that, I think the emotions that you experience through watching this film, and connecting with it, will leave you satisfied evn if you start to think, "Yeah, but that couldn't happen..."
An excellent film. Brilliant acting from all. And, yes, Smith truly shines in this role.

`Seven Pounds' is one of those films that is hard to review without giving anything away. It is a modern day weepy with a twist and has excellent performances from all involved. I'm a fan of Will Smith, but even taking that into account he still acts brilliantly in this film. You can work out the plot fairly quickly, but that doesn't stop you from being affected at the end and being mildly shocked by a few extra twists that are thrown in for good measure. In fact it shows how good the film is that you are left affected despite guessing the ending. Even with the overall feeling of sadness that colours this film and leaving you emotionally overwrought at the end, it still has a positive message about life and encourages you to go out and think about your relationships and outlook on things. A top film with superb acting from the whole cast. Well worth checking out.

I bought this blind, only saw the trailers at the cinema and on TV but am I glad I did.

I've read criticisms of this film that its plot line is too obvious.
But my view is those who think that have missed a trick here.

How often in life do we see what's coming for us, our family, children, friends but know we can't interfere but only feel the pain?

This film to me is about those feelings, its about that Tim (Will Smith) has caused his life to discintegrate, caused pain to those related to the 7 lives his actions cost and now feels compelled to make amends by helping 7 strangers.

At first the clues are scattered around the film but before long they become clear and you know what Tim is trying to do but that is the point once you stop working out the ending of the film you start watching the emotions that run through it.

The most telling part in the film comes after Will falls for one of his chosen beneficiaries and then goes to see if there is anyway they can survive without his help, the answer and the look on Smiths face to me is the fulcrum of the film and only serves to make the emotions of those who benefited from Tim's desire to rebalance the world more intense.

This is a bittersweet film helping all of us to see and share those mixed emotions that come from the scenarios that play out in this film.

I've now watched this a few times now and the intensity and feeling grows with each viewing, a strong and emotionally stirring journey to a destination we all reach in time.

As someone who works in a rental store I am regularly subjected to people's opinions of films, and recently this one has been the top whinging point. The general complaints are that it's slow and hard to get through, and that the story line is confusing and cluttered.
I however disagree enormously! It's true that the first half of this film is structured in such a way that it does make it a little difficult to follow and figure out, however do you really think this is an accident? It's built like this to keep you hooked and guessing and when the point comes in the film where everything clicks it's exciting!
The story follows a troubled man, Ben Thomas (Played by Will Smith in possibly his greatest role yet) an IRS officer. From the beginning of this film you are left guessing what kind of a person he is, it starts with him abusing a bling man over the phone, but then being aparently disgusted by his behaviour. We then follow him as he does huge favours for aparently random people in need.
As the story evolves we come to realise, through flashbacks, that Ben was involved in a car accident and feels responsible for the seven deaths it resulted in, and you twig pretty soon that this is why he feels the need to better seven strangers' lives.
Complicating his plans however, Ben falls in love with one of the strangers, Emily (Played by Rosario Dawson) a young woman with a heart condition that without a transplant doesn't give her long to live.
He's left with the decision to stay and love her, but change his plans, or help her an alter their future together hugely.
This is a beautiful but heartbreaking film, which has stayed with me for days.
