    An awful concept. Executed well. Will Smith is great. Starts okay, dies a little, ends with grace. Nice enough soundtrack.

    55/100 - Mediocre

    Wasn't too keen on this the first time around but it certainly works better on a second viewing. Smith actually gives quite a strong performance as the super-hero battling his own inner demons.

    It's let down somewhat by some ropey CGI, especially in the flying sequences, but overall it's not actually that bad.

    Absolutely loved this ante-hero flick. Smith is awesomely funny as always, and is complimented by Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman (who's acting is aging like wine). A story about 'Hancock,' a superhero who is battling his own personal demons as well as his reception from others.

    This movie was released at the wrong time. The summer of 08 was big for superhero movies like dark knight (best superhero movie of all time), iron man, hellboy 2, and the Incredible Hulk. So Hancock didn't really get the respect it deserved from critics.
    While the directing is not the best with its shaky cam. the performance given by will smith is one of his best, showing a transformation from loser to good guy. This is a different kind of superhero movie and for the most part I liked. It

    I haven't seen this since the cinema, but boy it looks dated so much for a recent(ish) film.

    I've just been reminded (now that i'm older) its like a warped Arrested Development episode in regards to Bateman and Theron.

    A funny and original movie, as well as a good superhero movie. Will Smith plays a Hero? (Again) What better could we ask for.

    I'm going to get some hate for this. But damn it I love this movie. I don't know if this is because it's about superpowers or because it has Will Smith but I think this film is awesome. The whole hospital scene gets me every time. Great movie.

    Great idea not very well executed with the story being all over the place while the film at times seems to have no idea what it wants to be. Story starts off strong but once hints at Hancock's backstory are laid out it never gets going again and ends up far too dull. The actions fine and berg does a good job with that but never seems to get anything from his cast, especially smith who seems a bit off.

    There's a few decent laughs here and some cool sequences and ideas but sadly Hancock's too much of a mess to be anything truly memorable.

    So much promise... and then it becomes a very typical action movie. Peter Berg does what he does well, but this could have been a great film with a more interesting director.
