    Some serious third-act-itis, but enjoyable before all that.

    This is a different take on the superhero genre with an interesting, offbeat twist.

    It's pretty astounding how fast this film goes off the rails. Hancock spectacularly manages to go from great to not so great all within the space of a single scene. What starts out as a terrifically unique and refreshing take on the superhero genre, turns into an awkward mess when Charlize Theron's character is revealed to be connected to Hancock.

    I liked Hancock, but the film is just one big missed opportunity.

    I really enjoyed this movie up until the 3rd act!
    It was promising to be a fantastic and interesting movie up until the point where Jason Bateman's character's wife reveals herself to have the same powers was Will Smith's character. It seemed unnecessary, and convoluted. They also used some lines to try to justify this poor choice of storyline.

    This movie could have been so much better if they just focused on improving Hancock's image as a superhero.

    "Hancock" may be many things, but it's certainly not a traditional superhero movie. That's either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your point of view.

    I appreciated the many original ideas swirling around the perimeter of this movie, but it's a shame that no one idea ever fully takes hold. The script feels like the product of a brainstorming session before anyone has had a chance to make sense of the notes. And not only is the…

    Hancock is the Lethal Weapon 4 of superhero movies - it starts out all funny and stuff, but then turns into something quite else. Ironically, the script, as imperfect as it is, has more to say than pretty much any recent Marvel movie (let's not even talk about DC) and if there's one superhero whose origin story I'd love to see, it's this one.

    Hancock es un montón de promesas incumplidas, es un fracaso estrepitoso que ha cerrado un par de puertas cuya pérdida lamentaremos. Junto con Los Increíbles, Hancock es el intento de la industria cinematográfica de aprovechar el creciente interés en el cine de superhéroes sin tener que depender de franquicias ajenas al cine. Tal es el batacazo (de crítica y público, no en taquilla) de Hancock que no veríamos otro intento de este calibre presupuestario hasta 2014, con Lucy...

    There's an interesting film in here but it never manages to get out. Flawed superheroes can make for more exciting explorations of the run-of-the-mill difficulties all of us face but unfortunately in the case of Hancock, the filmmakers can't decide which story they want to explore.

    Detrás de esta película hay otra con mucho potencial y una premisa muy interesante. Desgraciadamente, esa hipotética película está tapada por una de las peores interpretaciones de Will Smith (que ya es decir), una Charlize Theron con muy poquitas ganas de estar haciendo esto, una calificación para todos los públicos para una película que ganaría considerablemente con una R y por los efectos especiales más penosos que he visto desde G.I. Joe.

    Y ese final... ay.
