Seven Pounds

3

Will Smith does his best to save seven strangers to redeem himself

“[Director] Gabriele Muccino is the most emotional person I’ve met,” gushes Rosario Dawson on the solid extras package.

No bad thing in these ironic times, and the sincerity of the performances of Will Smith and Dawson at the heart of this mysterious drama keep sentiment at bay. Just.

Less stable is the script, telegraphing in the opening minutes the big ‘reveal’ as to why Smith’s IRS agent is trying to aid seven lost souls.
