    While the writing team's effort to create a mythology from scratch is commendable, this is an ill-conceived concept.

    Mr. Berg can't stage a proper action scene and going from extreme silliness to extreme melodrama doesn't do favor to either part.

    It's incoherent, and swings from superior superhero satire to mediocre superhero soap opera, but I liked it, certainly the first funnier, satirical half. Big Willie gives one of his best perfs ever as the alcoholic, depressive (but still oh-so-cool) asshole of a superdude, without any tangible connection to humanity. And I dig the inherent drama in the concept: it's lonely at the top. Theron does a fine job too, but she has the misfortune to be riding a curveball of…

    I only lasted five minutes. Everything about this is irritating: Will Smith, the music, the effects, the tone... everything.

    It's like watching an amateur home video made by a hilarious dad messing about with his new special effects package on his ZX Spectrum accompanied by a soundtrack that he thought sounded hip because he'd heard it on the hit parade.

    I won't rate it because I didn't manage to get through it. It may have got better, but any film that annoys me this much at the very start doesn't warrant me spending any more time on it.

    Surprisingly interesting!

    Did not expect or hope for more than a somewhat bizarre attempt at the superhero genre. This turned out to have a quite creative approach on an original angle. The first half is very interesting, then it gets a bit unfocused with the twist about one hour into the film. The ending is a bit messy too, in my opinion. The action sequences are, as usual, the least interesting part of the film, but not too boring. The…

    A new spin on the superhero role. I rather liked it. Theron was looking real good and a bad-ass in this, and Smith was still on my good side.

    Confession Bear: I would be first in line for a Hancock 2.

    Hancock is right up my wheelhouse. I can still remember the elation I felt seeing the trailer for this the first time - back when I learned a movie existed by seeing the trailer in the theater - as superheroes are my great pop culture love. And as an eighth grader, this film was everything I wanted out of a movie. And today, it's still pretty darn good.…

    I think Hancock was an excellent movie. I think it may gain more recognition later on, it was released the same year as the Dark Knight and took a bit of a back seat to it despite the box office success. I find the movie very underrated. The whole cast is strong. Will Smith is always doing something cool and different and this may even be my favorite film he's done so far. Charlize Theron is also very good and…

    Hancock is a really fun action film with an awesome concept and Will Smith is hilarious.
