“’Seven Pounds’ is simple but perfect, so classically structured that…it's like a redemption fable handed down from the ancients.”
- Kyle Smith, New York Post

"A life changing motion picture you will not easily forget. Will Smith is at his best.
One from the heart and good for the soul."
- Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com
