    I can describe "Hancock", in two words: Very Odd.

    Hancock is a superhero who lives here on Earth and looks like a regular person. But he acts like a bum and is mean to everybody and even when he saves people he causes so much trouble that no one likes him. One day he saves Ray, played a Jason Bateman, from being killed by a train. Ray does like Hancock and decides he can change Hancock's image and make him…

    An alternative to Marvel & DC classic superhero movies, where the hero follows the rules. I liked the first part of the movie, when the character is introduced, a lot of action and comedy, but in the second part with all the drama the level comes down a little.

    A soaringly entertaining deconstruction of the superhero myth made when the current yearly onslaught of superhero films was jus beginning, Peter Berg's "Hancock" is smart, thrilling, and fun. Starring Will Smith as an immortal man with immeasurable strengths, the film effectively balances wit with seriousness and depth with spectacle. It is a muscular action film seasoned with involving drama and engaging cleverness.

    Smith plays Hancock, a token superhero who spends his days drunk and disorderly, destroying property as he saves…

    Will Smith is a rude, crude, alcoholic super-being who's in dire need of an image overhaul, and Jason Bateman is a P.R. executive who wants to help him turn his life around in this action/comedy/drama. The first half is very funny stuff, then it gets unexpectedly dark 'n' gritty in the second half, but it's a fun flick all around.

    Hancock

    Such a mess of a movie that has studio tampering written all over it. I do like the performances here from Smith, Theron and Bateman but man they just did not know what kind of movie they wanted to make, is it an edgy comedy or a super serious action film, it tries to be both and feels insanely uneven for it. Worth a watch if you enjoy the cast but keep expectations low.

    "People should be happy you have arrived."

    Will Smith is really good at playing as ass. I've always gotten the sense that in real life he's a pretty nice guy, but I guess I don't know for sure. In any case, he does a great job portraying the reluctant superhero, Hancock. This film is definitely entertaining. It's got some great action sequences and some good comedy, but unfortunately these good sections only come in spurts and can't carry the film…

    I'm not really sure what to think of this.

    On the one hand, it's blatantly atonal, forgoing normal plot developments and a consistent mood in favour of its bizarre third act turn. On the other, it's something totally unlike what's seen in superhero movies nowadays, and I really appreciated it for that reason.

    I thought the third act was a lot better in execution than in concept, because this idea on paper is rather ridiculous. I thought they pulled it…

    Here's my simple 1, 2, 3-review.

    1. Hancock is such a weird movie, that you'll instantly feel left out of the loop. The end revelation is too late and misses desired momentum.

    2. Overall, it's a decent action flick but it could have been a lot better. Will Smith and Charlize Theron form an excellent dynamic on-screen duo and I would definitely want to see more of that.

    3. This needs a sequel, ASAP.
