Hancock ★★½

The idea behind the movie—an atypical superhero and a different approach to the genre—is pretty interesting and it begins promisingly, but the combination of drama, action, and comedy does not work from beginning to end and the story leads nowhere; the first half is better than the second half. Will Smith is a good choice for the role of John Hancock even though there is nothing remarkable about his, or anyone else’s, performance. "Hancock" is an uneven movie and nothing more than passable entertainment.
