The Movie Man - wrote on 05/13/09
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 Fresh Prince.
