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.

Not a bad tearjerker for the holiday season and as Smith's in it, it'll probably make a mint.

Seven Pounds feels like having Love Story and Beaches burnt onto your retinas in the style of A Clockwork Orange. But hang on for the finale...

It is a complex movie, but also an absorbing and moving one - and in truth Will Smith does bring an extra dose of class that helps it succeed.

... the toll of self-imposed guilt and responsibility is a tangible thing... no more of a stretch than a man who ages backwards or a billionaire dressed like a giant bat.

I think it's just kind of average but Rosario Dawson is great and worthy of some type of recognition throughout this award show season.

That big twist at the end... if you go back and analyze it -- I'm not sure it holds up, but I don't think it really matters all that much.

As the intricate plotting slowly gives way to the deeply felt, expertly played romance between Ben and Emily, the movie finds its heart.

To say that Seven Pounds is an odd film is an understatement--it's often downright bizarre. What's even crazier is that the damned thing kinda sorta works
