    ★★★ Rewatched by Tasha Robinson 27 Sep, 2014

    Rewatched out of curiosity after reading Nathan Rabin's Dissolve writeup talking about how it was the fourth-highest-grossing film of its year, but then was nearly forgotten. I think it plays better on a second viewing, with a sense of what's coming. The massive coincidences are hard to ignore, and so is Will Smith's one-note performance, which goes from pained scowl to happy scowl over the course of the film. And the massive mid-film shift to a different story and a…

    Yep, it holds up. An interesting concept executed pretty well. Really only a short period after the Theron reveal is anything other than very good.

    The concept of an alcohol-addicted or semi-addicted superhero is great, but Hancock has one of the shittiest endings I've seen.

    With a movie that feels like it has been rewritten and compromised so many times in battles between the writers trying to make an original superhero movie and the studios who wanted a marketable summer blockbuster, it couldn't help but be the amorphic, shapeless piece of cinematic crap it is. What could have been an insightful, dramatic study of a washed-up superhero trying to regain his image in society, or at least a brainless romp following the exploits of a…

    An interesting superhero movie with some serious structural flaws, and a major shift in tone, but ultimately has moments that are fun and exciting enough.

    Superhero Hancock (Smith) is a super-powered malcontent who often causes more trouble than he repairs. He is woefully unpopular, so a p.r. man (Bateman) decides to set up a publicity campaign for him.

    All this is very fantasy-meets-reality territory, and is fascinating in its taking lofty concepts and grounding them in gritty (often with hand-held…

    Will Smith plays Hancock, a superhero with a twist. He's basically Superman. He can fly, he has super strength and is invincible. Only difference is he doesn't wear a cape, doesn't indulge in a latex suit, and spends his time passed out on public benches after drinking. When he stops criminals in their tracks he invariably causes millions of dollars of damage. And he doesn't care.

    It's a cool concept, and it plays out as you would expect. Jason Bateman…

    Parten de una idea interesante y va decayendo. El final pierde intensidad, aunque es donde más tiros hay. Un superhéroe con resaca. Tiene su punto (a ratos).

    Started well, then everything outside the first 15 minutes happened and ruined everything.

    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.
