This movie is slow and meanders in ways that are rather hard to follow. That being said, it comes together very well in the end. The whole thing is well done and the conclusion is very emotional.

agree with another commenter that it was a bit hopeless and depressing. but the guy did his best to pay for the pain he'd caused and that part was pretty touching. still sad, though.

it is surprising, to see an individual who cannot live with consequences and wants to give something back and when you suddenly realize what he is planning on giving, is a total surprise to you!

This should be touching, but somehow it isn't.

Acting was good, story was interesting, but overall very hopeless and depressing!

“Seven Pounds” is a bit predictable but nonetheless a nicely told love story.

Moving story of heartbreaking guilt and selfless atonement. Will Smith upped his game.

Good story, but the heavy down mood was overbearing. Seriously needed a change of pace along the way.

I watched the movie Seven Pounds today and I like it because it was very inspiring and touching. It was a true story and seven people were lost. It starred Will Smith and he is an IRS agent and a tax collector. And in the end he dies then after he donates his heart to this woman named Emily Posa. Emily Posa is a woman who has a heart condition and she also has a job. It is a love story.
