Slow at times, but worth the time spent. I had not seen it before today and am glad that I had not done any "sneak peeking" as it is one of those movies that only works if you really do not know what to expect until more or less the end.
.
It still holds up as a great flick.
what a good movie, just amazing!
One of my all time favorite movies, almost had me in tears, and i dont think i can say that about more than 3 movies.
Great movie makes me wanna donate all my organs.
Omg, what a good movie. Not too many movie bring me to tears but this one did. Love love love Will Smith.

10/10 So inspirational! Will Smith did it again, just amazing!

Thomas acts as an IRS agent and utilizes his credentials to discover people who need his assistance. One particular case fascinates Mr. Thomas: Emily Posa, who happens to be suffering from a terminal illness. Thomas tries his best to make Emily happy in her dying days.

"There has been a suicide."
"Who's the victim?"
"I am."

Gabriele Muccino, director of The Pursuit of Happiness, A Place in the Sun, One Last Kiss, and Remember Me, delivers Seven Pounds. The storyline for this picture was triumphant and delivered to perfection. This may be the best Will Smith movie I have ever seen. The acting in this film was marvelous and the cast included Will Smith, Rosario Dawson, and Woody Harrelson.

"The blind beef salesman's trying to help me?"

My cousin recommended that I see this movie and I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this masterpiece. This film was brilliant and fascinating from beginning to end. I kept guessing what Will Smith's character would evolve into, and the end was gut wrenching and triumphant. As I stated above, if you were going to watch one Will Smith film in your entire lifetime, this would be the one to see.

"That, my friend, is not a dog. It's a god damn horse."

Grade: A

This was the most interminably long film. The first act is a mess in that it tries to confuse the audience and also set up a thriller which it isn't. The confusion adds up to nothing and then this tact is abandoned in favor of the love story which is a half hour too long. Will Smith Rosaria Dawson and the rest of the cast are charming and the acting is good, but no amount of excellent acting can help this film. The basic idea is good but the execution is a mess. The music is perfect as it underscores all the annoying aspects of the film and in an irritating way.
This is what movie making is all about!
This movie grabs you from the get go, and keeps you captivated and entertained all the way to the end. Beautifully acted and directed with a powerfull message that correctly is not completely revealed untill the end.

Thanks Will Smith for bringing this one to the big screen...

Oh, bring a tissue
Seven Pounds, its a profounding, sentimental piece of work from Gabriele Muccino, that overall triggers your heart and soul to care for its storyline, characters and atmosphere.

A complete mystery throughout the film ti'll the very end, that unravels to what I call one of the better emotional and heartfelt pictures I've seen in a very long time. The characters are deep, and they all resemble something to care for. However, neither did I find anything remarkably Oscar-worthy, not even Smith's character serves up there with his better roles such as the one from The Pursuit of Happyness also directed by Gabriele Muccino.

But there is a lot of hope for this film and it will indeed click with a lot of audiences, they will leave totally moved by what a tragic ending wraps up to be.

I had the opportunity to see it November 17th as a special premiere party and got the chance to meet both Smith and Dawson. Not only did they promote a rather promising picture but they also donated over 30 turkeys before Thanksgiving day.
