Eric and I both have very strong feelings about the movie Seven Pounds. To him, this movie brought out a deep rooted passion about the storyline and for me . . .my emotions were deep but more in the “I totally disliked” this movie!! I found this movie to leave a bad taste in my mouth! I really did not like the subject matter and half way through the movie I figured out the storyline. I thought the reason why Will Smith’s character was doing what he was doing was wrong!! I disagreed with his intent and his “purpose” in life and I thought it relayed a poor message. It’s hard not to give away the plot but let’s just say . . .it takes a very deep, twisted, and dark turn. What he thinks will “redeem” his soul only leads to more destruction and pain. The “gift” that he feel he needs to give, to me, is selfish and egotistical and it made me mad that he would choose that way. He had all the resources to do what he felt he needed to do . . . but yet . . .he lacked the heart and hope of which should’ve been instilled in him for a higher purpose. This movie just left me cold and angry.
