Filmographi Review – Will Smith | 23 Films

Average People Score for Will Smith Films: 74%

Films with perfect people scores:

  • Seven Pounds
  • I, Robot

ACTING: 65%

This score surprised me. I don’t think there’s any doubt that the Man can act, as he usually impresses me in whatever role he picks, so this score must represent the other actor’s sharing the screen. If they aren’t as impressive in the film, then this score naturally goes down.

Films with perfect acting scores:

  • Concussion
  • Seven Pounds
  • I Am Legend
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • I, Robot
  • Ali
  • Enemy of the State

CHARACTERS: 74%

This isn’t as much of a surprise. Sometimes Will Smith has seriously memorable characters, sometimes not so much, and for me, I always look for 3 main things for characters – a certain look, a certain sound or lack thereof, and a physical limitation/quirk/ability. Think of Darth Vader. If only one character has all three qualities, I award the film with perfect scores. The only other way to get a perfect score is if all the main characters in the film have at least 1 out of 3 characteristics.

Films with perfect character scores:

  • Seven Pounds
  • I, Robot
  • Collateral Beauty
  • Suicide Squad
  • After Earth
  • Men in Black 3
  • Hancock
  • Shark Tale
  • Men in Black II
  • Wild Wild West
  • Men in Black

CASTING: 72%

Now, as much of a fan of Will Smith that I am, I have to admit a couple of things, first, casting him in a role doesn’t always mean success for a film because sometimes he’s not always the best choice. Another thing to realize is maybe he IS the best choice for the role, but that doesn’t mean anybody else is. These things can lower a score.

Films with perfect casting score:

  • Men in Black 3
  • Seven Pounds
  • I Am Legend
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • Hitch
  • I, Robot
  • Men in Black II
  • Wild Wild West
  • Men in Black
  • Independence Day
  • Bad Boys

IMPORTANCE: 76%

While still an average score, 76% is on the higher side of average, and for something like the importance of people and their roles in the movie points you at the idea that Will Smith likes films that don’t contain two-dimensional and flat characters. He prefers to accept roles in films where a good majority of characters play a vital role in the direction of the plot, and that’s a good thing.

Films with perfect importance scores:

  • Bright
  • Collateral Beauty
  • Concussion
  • After Earth
  • Seven Pounds
  • I Am Legend
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • I, Robot
  • Wild Wild West
  • Enemy of the State
  • Men in Black
  • Independence Day

CHEMISTRY: 85%

Here we go. If there’s one thing you all should know about the artist formerly known as the Fresh Prince or Big Willy, is that he has charisma, and he works really well with pretty much everyone he plays in films with.

Films with perfect chemistry scores:

  • Collateral Beauty
  • Suicide Squad
  • After Earth
  • Seven Pounds
  • I Am Legend
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • Hitch
  • I, Robot
  • Bad Boys II
  • Men in Black II
  • Ali
  • Legend of Bagger Vance, The
  • Wild Wild West
  • Enemy of the State
  • Men in Black
  • Independence Day
  • Bad Boys

Average Writing Score for Will Smith Films: 73%

Films with perfect writing scores:

  • The Pursuit of Happyness
  • Collateral Beauty

DIALOGUE: 76%

Another slightly above score, for dialogue. This has to do with the fact that you have a lot of snarky things said by Will Smith as well as motivational speeches that are kind of memorable. Even if it’s not always memorable, if dialogue is important to the way a movie is made and perceived, you know they focused on it being done right, and that deserves praise, too.

Films with perfect dialogue scores:

  • Collateral Beauty
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • Hitch
  • I, Robot
  • Shark Tale
  • Bad Boys II
  • Men in Black II
  • Ali
  • Legend of Bagger Vance, The
  • Wild Wild West
  • Men in Black
  • Independence Day
  • Bad Boys

BALANCE: 72%

I don’t understand how a lot of movies in general get so mixed up with convoluted stories when really, the best way to make a movie, sometimes, is by testing the less is more theory. For me, balance is when you can tell somebody in 30 seconds what a movie is about. Hint* Saying stuff that happens isn’t what a movie is about, that’s just plot points. Think about what the characters are trying to do. For example – a plot point explanation: Frodo and Sam go on an adventure with a bunch of people called a Fellowship. Actual plot: The Fellowship of the Ring go on a journey TO destroy an evil ring.

Films with perfect balance scores:

  • Collateral Beauty
  • After Earth
  • Men in Black 3
  • Seven Pounds
  • I Am Legend
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • I, Robot
  • Legend of Bagger Vance, The
  • Wild Wild West
  • Enemy of the State
  • Men in Black
  • Bad Boys

STORY DEPTH: 59%

Say, what’s the problem with having an actor that plays primarily in blockbusters? They end up having movies that are more fun than deep. You can love Will Smith’s acting all you want, but getting deep on a storytelling perspective isn’t always what they’re trying to do with these films – hence this is one of the weakest categories for Will Smith.

Films with perfect story depth scores:

  • Collateral Beauty
  • Concussion
  • Seven Pounds
  • Hancock
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • Hitch
  • Shark Tale
  • Legend of Bagger Vance, The

ORIGINALITY: 70%

Yes, yes, originality may be less than average, but it’s Hollywood, so what else is new?

Films with perfect originality scores:

  • Collateral Beauty
  • Concussion
  • Suicide Squad
  • Focus
  • Seven Pounds
  • Hancock
  • I Am Legend
  • Pursuit of Happyness, The
  • Ali
  • Legend of Bagger Vance, The
  • Wild Wild West
  • Men in Black

INTERESTING: 87%

When I ask if a film is interesting or not, I first mean interesting enough to watch in the first place, and if it continues to hold your interest without. Without a doubt, Will Smith knows how to make an interesting film.

Films with perfect interesting scores:

  • Bright
  • Collateral Beauty
  • Suicide Squad
  • After Earth

Average BTS Score for Will Smith Films: 73%

Films with perfect BTS scores:

  • Suicide Squad
  • I, Robot

VISUALS: 59%

Behind the scenes is kind of a special category. So, while 59% may seem low, it just means that not all of his films are visually stunning. 50% in this case is absolutely average, so visuals in his movies are above average.

Films with perfect visuals scores:

  • Suicide Squad
  • After Earth
  • Hancock
  • I, Robot
  • Wild Wild West
  • Independence Day

CINEMATOGRAPHY: 67%

Cinematography can make or break any film, and 67% is actually a pretty good score for an average for this many films, it means it’s often a big focus.

Films with perfect cinematography scores:

  • Suicide Squad
  • I Am Legend
  • I, Robot
  • Bad Boys II
  • Legend of Bagger Vance, The
  • Enemy of the State
  • Men in Black
  • Independence Day

EDITING: 72%

Editing is one of those things that doesn’t always need to be noticeably great in a film in order for it to work well, but if it happens to have great editing that sticks out, then it makes it that much more memorable in the long run, and 72% for editing? That’s actually really good.

Films with perfect editing scores:

  • Suicide Squad
  • Focus
  • Hancock
  • I Am Legend
  • I, Robot
  • Bad Boys II
  • Wild Wild West
  • Enemy of the State
  • Independence Day
  • Bad Boys

ADVERTISING: 96%

I won’t go through the list of films that aren’t as advertised because there’s really only one, and it’s a big problem with false advertisement, and that’s Collateral Beauty. Which is unfortunate because the movie is actually pretty decent if you can look past the marketing issue. Everything else was as advertised.

MUSIC/SOUND: 70%

It is becoming increasingly difficult to find films with musical scores that are actually memorable and something you’d want to listen to again on an album… but Will Smith is an exception because not only does he sometimes provide theme music for his films, but there’s honestly memorable musical scores in general as well.

Films with perfect music and sound scores:

  • Suicide Squad
  • I Am Legend
  • Hitch
  • I, Robot
  • Shark Tale
  • Men in Black II
  • Wild Wild West
  • Men in Black
  • Bad Boys

Average Entertainment Score for Will Smith: 59%

Films with perfect Entertainment scores:

  • Independence Day
  • Men in Black
  • I Am Legend

REWATCHABILITY: 70%

The categories in Entertainment are similar to BTS in that they’re a bit misleading. A score of 50% overall is perfectly entertaining, and the higher that gets, the more mind-blowing and epic the Entertainment category ultimately is. First up is rewatchability, which if Will Smith is anything, he is rewatchable. His stuff is just…fun.

Films with perfect rewatchability scores:

  • Collateral Beauty
  • Men in Black 3
  • Hancock
  • Seven Pounds
  • I Am Legend
