    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Hancock is such a disappointment. It's in no way a terrible movie, just disappointing. It's first two thirds are pretty good, a fresh and different take on the Superhero movie, but yet when it tries to raise the stakes it fails in every way. Exactly 54 minutes into the film where Charlize Theron's character reveals her powers is immediately when the film goes south. The whole backstory of Smith and Theron's characters is way too foggy, far fetched, and it's…

    Screw the haters, I like this movie. This is one of only a few movies where Will Smith drops the cool guy persona and transforms himself into a very vulnerable, self loathing character who although comedically can be off sometimes, still provides for a very entertaining performance. Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman also provide some great supporting work with a heartfelt performance from Theron and and inspiring performance from Bateman.

    I thoroughly enjoyed…

    A bit of a forgotten entry in the superhero genre, Hancock is flawed but still enjoyable. Will Smith's natural star power makes him a good fit for a superhero, albeit one who begins in a dark, drunk and property-destroying place.

    With script contributions from Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan, Hancock is at its best when showcasing the damage Hancock causes whilst saving lives. However, while pairing Hancock with Jason Bateman's PR guru in an effort to boost his profile generates some…

    Analysis: Will Smith's lips in the poster tell us beforehand how much this film sucks.

    I don't know what kind of butchered creative process went on behind the scenes, but it must have been worthy of an NC-17 rating to produce a film as mangled as this - the worst part is that it often shows promise, but then ultimately falls flat

    There's time and place for everything... No, it's not college. What I'm saying is that handheld close-up shots with shallow depth of field should never be overused. Unfortunately, this technique is being abused by young indie-wannabe filmmakers who mistake these shots with art. Bokeh in the background alone does not make your shot artsy. Shaky close-ups of faces don't elevate your story. If anything, these techniques can void the scene of any sense of geography and in a film like…

    A premissa do anti super-herói, meio vagabundo, meio beberrão, é das melhores. Mas o que era pra ser uma simples brincadeira, perde-se num roteiro que se leva muito mais a sério do que o material permitia. Will Smith, de biquinho, está em seus piores dias; Charlize Theron e Jason Bateman, no filme errado. Fuja!"

    She asked for my John Hancock, I though that's who I was

    If Superman had an alcohol addiction, then this is the story that would unfold. This story has happened before in Iron Man, but Hancock recovered much faster, then had different problems to deal with. His weakness, which is ridiculous and hardly explained. Without a good explanation, the problem is handled well, and ended in a grand spectacle.

    This is a really fun movie that I would not mind watching again. If Will Smith puts this effort into another comic book movie than Suicide Squad will be something fantastic.

    I'm not sure how to rate this. It seemed like the plot changed focus about halfway through. I thought it was going to be a story about redemption, but then the train jumped the track and all of a sudden there was another superhero and hints of some complex mythology, which completely wiped away the complete effectiveness of the the first part of the film- namely that Hancock was learning the Spider-Man lesson (you all know which one I mean).…
