Very Very Predictable from the onset


but it was good seeing Will Smiths acting skills.. you really believed he was that character

Rosario DAwson was quite surprising

the joy in this film is the acting, the story is so very obvious that there's no point in watching it for that

I've seen all three and in my opinion:

Bejamin Button>Yesman>Seven Pounds

On another note, you may also want to consider Frost vs Nixon. Very good movie even if you dunno jack about American political history. If you liked the Queen, you'd like this one.

Good movie... Very moving. Not as good as Benjamin Button, but still good!

Great insight. I heard Frost Nixon is a very a good movie. Very educational for guys like our age who has no idea who Nixon is and what the whole scandal is all about. I'm going to see it for sure.

I was forced to watch 'the Queen' on the plane and yeah, with no expectations at all, i found the acting being top notch. Same for 7 pounds, with no expectations, i found it wonderfully well done.

I was never a fan of Rosario in MIB 2 and i did not like her in this movie cause she wasn't the typical pretty girl. then again, the female lead needed a girl that wasn't uber pretty so her ugliness grew on me and i enjoyed her on screen.

I went in with no expectation so I really enjoyed it. Will Smith has the 'i got something stuck in my ass look' and the puzzling fact of story kept me watching more. Ending was sort of predictable but you just wanted to watch it till the end. The last scene with the hug and tears coming down was....touching.

i'm in the philippines right now and i picked up the movie cu'z it was cheap and expecting it to be shit quality but then i watched it and it was dvd quality and 5.1 lol

i thought it was a pretty good movie i don't think any other actor could've carried it as good as will smith did.

That's probably the best explanation. It's what I thought of first after I understood what was going on.
