Will Smith did a knockout job in the emotional film "The Pursuit of Happyness" and now he's starring in another heart-tugging film just in time for the holidays.
In "Seven Pounds," he portrays a mysterious man (Ben Thomas) who survived a horrific crash that killed seven people. He spends the rest of the film attempting to atone for his involvement in the crash by helping to save the lives of others. It seems a bit gloomy doesn't it? Is this a film we'll want to watch during the holidays? So much for holiday cheer!
Newsday's Rafer Guzman offers his take on the film:
"As Ben doles out salvation, choosing the righteous from the undeserving, he presumptuously plays God. He sees bravery in suicide, rather than in sticking around to do the hard work of living. And his seven victims are never humanized; they're mere abstractions, seven pounds of flesh that allow Ben to play the martyr and jerk our tears."
