Seven Pounds

Video Link

At first, I wasn't quite sure what to think about this movie. It's one of those films where everything comes together at the end - kind of like Memento. It does not follow the traditional formula of how movies are shown - it's kind of unique in a way.

It was a bit slow at first. But, it kept me watching and wanting to find out more - it's very mysterious as you are wondering why Will Smith's character acts the way he does and how the pieces of the puzzle come together. Little by little, things are revealed in the movie. Though, it's not until the end where you find out how everything fits.

The movie is more of a drama, some comedy parts. There's not much action until the end. Though, it tells a very heart warming story.

If you're in the mood for drama and enjoy movies where you have to figure out how the film comes together, this movie is for you.
