So I saw Will Smith's newest movie, Seven Pounds, and I must say it turned out to be a great movie. It was really nice to see Will Smith play a serious role in a movie like this, without it being Sci-Psy related [Men In Black, I-Robot, I Am Legend...the list goes on!]. I actually also liked this movie better than The Pursuit Of Happyness. And yes I do know that was based on a true story. That movie was just kind of what you'd expect to happen, did happen.
My advice for this movie, is to not judge the movie by it's title. And also not try guessing what it is for/about by it. You will find out by the end of the movie, well sort of what the title signifies. Well I actually had to Wikipedia it, after seeing it because I didn't fully understand why. But I suppose it does make sense.
In conclusion, I would recommend people to see this movie, but maybe not on Christmas day, because it does have some sad parts in it. But if you want to see a well performed movie with an interesting story line, Seven Pounds is a movie that can fulfil that need of yours.
Oh, and as a side note, I saw a preview of the movie on TV where they played Ashanti's song, "Shine," near the end. Though it isn't in the movie, they really could have used it where they had the children singing in the choir (since in the album version of the song, there is a section of children singing).
