Seven Pounds truly was a failure of a motion picture. Although Will Smith does a fine job in the lead role nothing else in the film worked for me. First of all the plot in general was flawed and just not good. The plot is very ambiguous, so I don’t want to give too much away, but it is about a man, Ben Thomas (Will Smith), who is a very unstable character that seems to be doing random acts of kindness to random people. Thomas throughout the movie travels to see the different people he might help especially one women named Emily Posa (Rosario Dawson) and the two of them fall in love. At the end of the movie all the loose ends tie up and the story of the movie is cleared up. The beginning was boring the middle was decent and the end was okay besides the fact that parts of it were stupid and didn’t make much sense. Right after the movie finishes you might think that it might have been a decent movie but then after any thought you realize that it wasn’t good at all. The director tries to take the Will Smith’s emotional performance in The Pursuit of Happyness and inject it into Seven pounds but the film just isn’t emotional enough. The only positives were pretty good acting and a half decent story.
