    I ************ this movie for the very first time. I totally disagree with the critics. While yes, it may depict an overly dramatized way of atoning for one's misgivings & pain, it at the same time portrayed a level selflessness that obviously is far beyond those same critics comprehension. Far fetched? Maybe. Idealistic? Perhaps. But excellent acting is just that & so was both Will Smith's & Rosario Dawson's performances. Instead of even being nominated for an Academy Award, I can see how this movie pales to a psycopathic slaughterer & why that deserved best picture of 2008. NOT !!!! I turned off No Country For Old Men because it seemed like a glorified Natural Born Killers. But then again it is sex & violence that sells in this country. Too bad. Seven Pounds far & away a better film.

    I am wondering why this movie did not win any awards. I think it was wonderful. Now I am against suicide however I feel that every person on this earth needs a wake up call and that is that we should be out there helping those in need. No don't kill yourself to do it but there are many other ways to give of yourself. You need to watch this move all the way through to get that message. You may even need to watch it twice. I did.
