The story is about a cocky, looser like super hero who has been living under a rock lately finally brings himself back to reality when he starts dating the wife of his publicists. Much like like super man, he has super strength, super flying ability, and super intelligence. What he does not use is his heart. He has no motivation to continue to help the world until a special event happens. This movie started of cool with a drunk superhero but then the movie went soft and that's when it became unfunny.

One of Will Smith's weakest films. By the end the characters were undeveloped and boring.

Very good movie! Well, at first... I didn't like Charlize Theron in this film. I feel as if there could have been someone better to play her part. This is really the only complaint I have with the film itself. I applaud Will Smith's acting in this movie. I also love that Hancock is unlike other super heroes. A completely different twist! Love it.

"Hancock" by Yojimbo

Hancock is a superhero. He's also a bum and a drunk. Until one day he saves the life of a PR guru who sets about helping him change his image. This film is an odd one. The fact that it stars Will Smith and is packed with SFX also belies the fact it has quite a quirky "indie" feel to it, and Jason Bateman's presence certainly adds to this. It's actually a great premise; the whole idea that just because someone has super powers doesn't mean they can't be a waster and the first half of the film has a lot of very funny, inventive moments to the point where I was convinced I was seeing a future favourite. Unfortunately half way through it abandons the original idea and throws in a ridiculous back story and excuse for his existence which to be honest, I didn't really feel it needed. It could've...

Hancock

Hancock is a fun ride, filled with a few good laughs but basically a borrowed story(superman) and plenty of borrowed action scenes. I like peter berg's movies, I like that he knows how to tell a story and delivers good visuals in his films. I like Will Smith, i think he's a good actor, but it bothers me that most of his films rely to much on special effects, judging from his other work (The Pursuit of Happiness, Ali.), he's capable of making good films, I'd like to see more of those. With that said, I think his performance is good and is a lot of fun to watch. Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman are good too. It's the story that leaves a lot to be desired and the ending is highly disappointing. Those two things keep this film from hitting a bullseye. Sadly, It's more of the norm, from the F...

I Knew I Shouldn't Have Watched It!

This movie is pretty terrible and the trailers reflected that. This picture not only suffers from a lack of focus but also a lack of aim and resolution. I feel like the filmmakers were coming up with ideas right on the spot as it went along. With a confusing backstory, it was hard for me to care for the characters. I know that the filmmakers are trying to make a funny superhero movie that doesnít take itself too seriously. I believe they could have made that kind of film with a better script, visual effects, and with just the right balance of tone and pace. Not even the star power of Will Smith, Charlize Theron, and Jason Bateman could save this wreck. Smithís character was annoying and I felt like I didnít know anything about him; Theronís character was moody the whole time; the only cha...
