Having misplaced his confidence and swing it appears that evidently Junnah is destined to disappoint however when a myserious man referred to as Bagger Vance turns up providing to caddy for him it appears that evidently issues are turning round for Junnah.
I’ve to say that while I take pleasure in “The Legend of Bagger Vance” it needs to be stated between the mysticism of the character Bagger Vance and lots of zen like golf sequences it’s all a bit too fairytale like. However then Will Smith delivers an enthralling, enjoyable, intriguing character in Bagger Vance making a lot of what’s actually plenty of nonsense into an entertaining film.
9) Males in Black (1997)
While giving chase to a felony, James Darrel Edwards III discovers that he is up towards somebody who isn’t human bringing him to the eye of Agent Kay who introduces him to the highest secret company MiB whose job is to regulate all of the aliens who reside on the planet undetected. Having satisfied Edward’s to hitch this particular company, turning into Agent Jay within the act, they discover themselves within the thick of issues because the planet is dealing with destruction until they will uncover an Alien terrorist in search of ambassador’s from different planets.
While the sequel wasn’t as much as a lot the primary “Males in Black” was a enjoyable film which not solely gave Will Smith a field workplace success but in addition a chart topping music. It is very a lot the type of efficiency we like from Smith, delivering loads of humour combined in with motion and with the shock pairing of Smith and Tommy Lee Jones working so properly it is a film which is enjoyable from begin to end.
eight) Hancock (2008)
John Hancock is a troubled man, on one hand he has tremendous powers and tries to make use of them to do goo, however he additionally loves his drink typically main his good intentions ending up with disastrous consequnces and a traile of destruction. However while making an attempt to do an excellent flip by saving PR man Ray Embrey from being hit by a practice he inadvertently will get himself a brand new greatest pal who units about enhancing Hancock’s public picture. All of which is nicely and good however for some purpose Ray’s spouse is to not glad to see Hancock being welcomed into their house and never simply due to his accident susceptible methods.
Proper the very first thing is that “Hancock” the film shouldn’t be nice, it is like two films slapped into one and the mix simply feels utterly worng. However fortunately Will Smith as John Hancock does, with Smith making a memorable dangerous ass hero and delivering a couple of moments of comedy with plenty of motion. However just like the film Smith’s efficiency suffers with the primary half being nice while the second lower than nice.
7) I, Robotic (2004)

However Spooner and his technophobic angle leads him to suspect that Lanning’s demise was not suicide however was homicide, dedicated by a robotic who someway managed to kill regardless of guidelines stopping him.
To place it merely “I, Robotic” is a Will Smith film, a futuristic critical one but in addition an motion film. So what we get is Will Smith delivering a pumped up efficiency in additional methods than one with him displaying off his spectacular physique as he works out while additionally delivering excessive paced motion sequences all of which has a contact of humour to them, because of Smith’s supply of sarcastic dialogue. While a type of critical film, it is arduous to take it utterly significantly however Smith delivers a powerful efficiency.
6) Dangerous Boys (1995)

When a sizeable quantity of medicine is audaciously stolen from the police protected home Burnett and Lowrey have simply seventy two hours to retrieve the stolen medicine and catch the criminals. Not that straightforward when a confussion results in them having to fake to be one another to ensure that a witness to return forth.
Though Will Smith had already proven his skills on the large display you might say that “Dangerous Boy’s” was his first main film the place he was one of many major stars. It is one other a type of films the place he delivers precisely what individuals like, so we get motion, we get comedy and Smith making a clean operator in Minke Lowery. However it’s as a lot to do with Martin Lawrence’s efficiency as Will Smith’s as to why the film works making a memorable cop partnership for a brand new period.
5) I Am Legend (2007)
Within the yr 2012, New York has been deserted after a miracle remedy for most cancers mutates and leaves those that have been handled with it into flesh consuming zombie like beings. The one individual left in New York is Robert Neville who is decided to find the remedy for this mutant virus even when it means he’s confronted with a day by day battle to guard himself from these zombie like beings who roam the streets at night time.
It needs to be stated that “I’m Legend” is a film which has ended up splitting audiences. Some have been wowed by this type of horror story while others felt it a weak adaptation of Richard Matheson’s unique novel. Whether or not you just like the film or not what’s for positive it is a robust efficiency from Will Smith who not solely is the one character in it for a lot of the time but in addition delivers that sense of worry and loneliness of the final survivor in a as soon as bustling metropolis.
four) Ali (2001)
Overlaying the yers between 1964 and 1974 “Ali” is the story of boxer Muhammad Ali.

And naturally it covers his boxin profession and his battle to be allowed to field once more after refusing to hitch the US Army.
“Ali” is one other considered one of Will Smith’s film which splits audiences as a result of for a lot of it cowl such a small a part of the legendary boxer’s life but in addition as a result of director Michael Mann has such a stylistic strategy to films that it typically does not really feel like a mainstream film. Whether or not you prefer it or not it is exhausting to disregard the spectacular efficiency of Will Smith as Muhammad Ali. Firstly the bulking up he did to bodily resemblance Ali is beautiful however he picks up all of the little mannerisms, the fast ft, the best way he pronounced phrases just about the whole lot is spot on and it is such a disgrace that the film itself finally ends up splitting audiences as a result of it is certainly one of Smith’s greatest performances.
three) Six Levels of Separation (1993)

However when the Kittredge’s insist he stays the night time they’re in for a shock as not the whole lot is as what it appears and develop into decided to find the reality surrounding this younger man.
Contemplating that again in 1993 Will Smith was recognized extra as for his comedy and particularly “The Recent Prince of Bel-Air” watching him tackle a critical position in a film whose roots have been on the stage could be very spectacular. In truth Smith’s efficiency because the charming and eloquent younger man in “Six Levels of Separation” is what makes it work as a film and his supply of some considerate monologues makes for highly effective stuff.
2) Seven Kilos (2008)
Haunted by a tragic secret, Ben Thomas appears to assist 7 deserving individuals within the hope of discovering redemption via his acts. However when Ben places his plans to assist into movement nothing can cease them, besides the did not keep in mind for falling for a type of he chooses to assist who finally ends up reworking his life.
Even earlier than I say anthing concerning the sensible efficiency from Will Smith as Ben Thomas you must say that “Seven Kilos” is a powerful, emotional and touching film full cease which is courageous and totally different out of your regular mainstream fare. However a lot of what makes it so good is the highest efficiency from Will Smith who takes on a troublesome, virtually mysterious character and makes us love him, champion him and when he feels emotion so can we.
1) The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
Based mostly upon the true story of Chris Gardner who through the 80s not solely discovered himself just about penniless but in addition a single dad when his spouse left him. Typically pressured to reside tough, sleeping in bogs and queue up with others for a room in a hostel he manages to get himself on an internship to turn out to be a inventory dealer within the hope of creating a greater, safer future for his son.
There’s a lot that I can empathise with in Chris Gardner’s story and as such it is a very touching and highly effective storyline, made all of the extra higher by a efficiency from Will Smith which ought to have gained him an Oscar. He actually will get into the thoughts of somebody who hasn’t any cash and exhibits the emotional aspect of not figuring out the place the subsequent meal is to return from and the entire desperation of it. However on the similar time it is an inspiring efficiency and storyline making “The Pursuit of Happyness” my no 1 Will Smith film.
