actor: Will Smith

Seven Pounds

Will Smith has played many dramatic parts lately but none as traumatic and sad as the one he plays here. His character has caused the deaths of seven individuals including his wife and he makes the decision to literally give a "Pound of Flesh" for each one to pay for his self assessed crimes. This [...]


"Hancock" offers fine performances from the three leads, namely Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman. In fact, Bateman's comic timing as he plays a character named Ray is very good. When Hancock saves his life after he is stuck in his car on train tracks with an oncoming locomotive, Ray [...]

I Am Legend

It is a few years from now in human history. Gasoline costs $6.63 a gallon. The streets of New York city are vacant. Set in a bleak environment, this edgy film showcases Dr. Robert Neville (Will Smith), the last survivor of a deadly virus which has left only attacking mutants in its wake. Neville [...]

The Pursuit of Happyness

This film is very good in some respects. Will Smith turns in a stellar performance as Chris Gardner, a down-and-out salesman who hasn't sold anything lately. Due to the financial stress in their lives, his wife finds that she cannot cope and leaves him and their five-year-old son as she believes [...]

Shark Tale – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

This was an awesome movie. Pixar always does a great job with animation, but Shark Tale went way beyond any of their other works I have seen so far. The reef that all of the fish lived in was a coral reef with all of the modern additions of downtown New York. The cast was amazing. Never have I seen [...]


I think Will Smith can now be known as an all-around actor. His great performance in this film is a notch in his belt for romantic comedies. There was a lot that I enjoyed in this movie. “Hitch” hit on almost any experience a guy can encounter when trying to pursue a female interest. I know [...]

Men In Black – Edited

December 22, 2004

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I thought that this was a really good movie. But I felt I had to give it a rating of 12+ because of several factors. The whole premise of this movie is a team of men who fight aliens. And some of the aliens are a little scary. I know if I would have seen this movie when I was younger I would have [...]

Men In Black 2 – Edited

December 22, 2004

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Once again the Men in Black are back to save the world. They kept all of the great special effects and gadgets they had in the first movie, but this time they face a little more formitable opponent. The editing in this movie was well done. There is no inappropriate language, sex or nudity. Still I [...]

I Robot

I, Robot is easily one of the best science-fiction movies in recent years. Will Smith carries the film, adding comic relief and present-day sensibilities to Asimov’s futuristic fantasy world. The story is solid and entertaining but also deals with the interesting issues surrounding computers and [...]
