What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Rebekah Kendal While you may initially be a little confused by the sequence of events and the lack of any kind of explanation, the pieces quickly fall into place and very few will be surprised by the inevitable conclusion.
Leon van Nierop It is a flimsy chapter in the action star's career that will not supply the testosterone fix that Smith junkies require.
Ivan Sadler Even though it is far from flawless, Seven Pounds is an entertaining movie, designed to tug at the heartstrings with all its might. So don't forget to bring the tissues.

Roger Ebert Some people will find it emotionally manipulative. Some people like to be emotionally manipulated. I do, when it's done well.
Adam Nayman Smith eschews his usual cockiness for a kind of nervous melancholy, and allows himself to look older and more worn than ever before, but he can only carry this unwieldy tear-jerking contraption so far. At which point, there’s nothing to do but to send in the jellyfish.
C. Fuchs In the end, and despite my socks never being in danger, I found this to be a flawed, but emotionally affecting drama designed in an easy to swallow fashion with Smith as the pill, if you will -- about making amends and coming to peace with guilt and past trauma.
Tomatometer Grim and morose, Seven Pounds is also undone by an illogical plot.
