... the ending just raised another question: what the hell was that?

I've rarely seen a film so sure of its own seriousness and profundity.
October 21, 2014
I've never seen such a bad film so well made.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
July 14, 2011
An overwrought, improbable drama that's as frustrating as it is morbid.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Proof that no black actor, regardless of acclaim or popularity, can ever truly transcend the Mythical Black Man motif. Milquetoast dweebishness robs Will Smith of his natural forcefulness, and "Seven Pounds" has easily the worst ending of the last decade.

Reactions to the movie will largely depend on whether or not viewers decide this time that the divine Mr. Smith has overreached. I say he has -- but I can't tell you why.

El ritmo de la cinta es algo lento en un inicio pero después mejora, aunque hay que decirlo, se siente la mano manipuladora del director que parece haber estado más concentrado en pensar si el público se sentiría conmovido que en hacer un filme memorable.

Seven Pounds may be the most spiritual picture of the holiday season; this story of redemption is a gift for moviegoers.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
August 30, 2009
The ending will divide viewers. Some will shed tears, others will be outraged. It's a bold artistic choice, but one of questionable morality.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The creepiest version yet of the Magical Negro routine
July 30, 2009
Takes immense pleasure in letting its audience in on nothing.

The good, Will Smith is a brilliant actor. The bad, Seven Pounds isn't nearly as brilliant as Will Smith.

April 23, 2009
Will Smith's previous film with director Gabriele Muccino, The Pursuit of Happyness, was a tale well told. Their new one is a gimmicky tale annoyingly told.

March 10, 2009
A clumsily melodramatic movie that tells us too much too soon and forces us to sit through endless morose vacuousness.

Más allá de lo caprichoso de la historia, e incluso de lo fragmentario del relato -a lo 21 Gramos- es innegable la capacidad que exhibe Muccino para atrapar la atención del espectador.

February 27, 2009
Not a bad tearjerker for the holiday season and as Smith's in it, it'll probably make a mint.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
February 25, 2009
...packs one hell of an emotional punch as it approaches its affecting and flat-out devastating conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
February 1, 2009
Seven Pounds is an unexpected holiday powerhouse. Will Smith shakes off his familiar, comfortable persona, and cuts to the unsettled heart of humanity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/5
January 31, 2009
A contrived, thrill-less thriller that's more concerned about its inane gimmicks than about keeping you truly riveted, engrossed or enlightened.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
January 16, 2009
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.
