Seven Pounds

I went and saw Seven Pounds at the dollar theater with some friends last weekend. It was really interesting. The set up of the movie kept me confused and guessing all the way through especially since sometimes it was really hard to tell when a flashback was being shown of when it was Will Smith in the present.
As the end of the movie got closer, I started putting a couple things together and yet I still after the movie ended I wasn't sure how I felt about Will Smith's choice. I did however really like finding out the meaning of the title which was something that has bugged me since I first saw the movie trailer. I also thought Will Smith's acting was great and the director did a great job putting the film together. The clues were all there and I've really enjoyed thinking about the movie and seeing where all the little hints were placed. I guess that's one reason I liked Seven Pounds because it left me with lots to think about and piece together even after the movie was over. I love movies, books or performances that you can enjoy thinking about after the event is over. I am however very glad that I waited to go to the dollar theater to go see it. I would give this movie 3 and a half stars.
