Seven Pounds(2008)

My mom has a friend that recommended this movie to her and she watched it and said it was really good and I wanted to see if I would end up liking the movie to and it surprised me that I found the movie to be bad. The movie was confusing as hell with a story that was hard to follow, I was left asking myself a bunch of questions about what was happening and why and the fact that the movie has numerous pointless characters that serve no purpose at all to the plot. I thought Will Smith's performance was solid and nothing remarkable and I thought the ending was thought provoking. The film tries and tries to be a great movie but just fails in the end due to terrible storytelling, pointless characters, and numerous plot holes throughout.
