Stripped down to its core this is probably the most romantic of all superhero movies. Man and woman immortal and bound together by cosmic fate live through centuries being chased by bad guys, only having each other to protect. But they can't be together or else they become mortal. In order to save his life the woman leaves the man upon learning he won't remember her after waking up from a life threatening injury, which he sustained while protecting her. Many decades he has become Hancock a no-good, booze drinking, alcoholic excuse of a superhero and she is a married housewife with a son. They meet again and the love story that has been going on for thousands of years continues in modern day LA. Now THAT'S original storytelling, Thanks to its unique mythological undertones Hancock is easily one of my top 3 superhero movies of all time.

Considering the rating this movie was surprisingly good o.O I'd even go so far as to say it was really good. Sure, some may complain about the language, but quite frankly, I'd say it's appropriate ... Some do resort to strong language and violence when otherwise unable to express themselves. And Hancock has obviously some issues, starting with his amnesia and him being overwhelmingly different than anybody else, his drive to help people but his lack of self restrain which causes numerous problems and makes him very unpopular to the point of being hated by everyone - what would you do if you'd tried to be nice and everyone is shouting and cursing at you??? His innate goodness is the reason he still tries to help people, he could just give up and let things happen, but he doesn't. And Ray... well if I ever meet someone like him, I'd count myself lucky.

47 | Hancock's personality would be fit in The Boys series universe. He lazy-drunk guy with a superpower. This film tried to tell us that he is a superhero but he was more like an anti-hero. He was a word that he doesn't like to hear, an asshole. But his persona was fun to watch, thanks to Will Smith's performance. And let's talk about this film's bad writing. The people in this film besides Ray and Hancock should be dumb or something. Let's take an example, all people knew that Hancock was very strong and has a superpower but the government put him in prison with the same security as regular people? Many small details like this are badly written. The power of the film was Hancock himself, even that not been developed in a good way. ••••••••••••••••••••••• Rating: 46.79 Plot P1: 0.8 P2: 0.6 P3: 1 P4: 0.7 Favorite Characters 1.

At the end of the movie Hancock has an eagle. No one explains where the eagle came from. It rules.

Yeah, this stank.

Hancock had character at the start of the film, but that slowly faded away by the second half, that just sort of floundered until it ended.

It lacked the humor that comes with a lot of Will Smith's other outings, and it lacks the charisma that usually seeps out of Smith.

It probably had problems, whether literal or subjective (that most people had a problem with), but nothing stood out to me, and I enjoyed this film. It was fun, lighthearted, and easygoing, which is likely why it did so well at the box office. It a More

**Despite being one of the great films of Will Smith's career, it is a weak and uninteresting film.**

I think almost everyone who has seen superhero movies, especially the bigger budget ones, has wondered how it's possible that those heroes are so destructive: in order to eliminate an enemy or a More
