Movie Info

A scruffy superhero named Hancock (Will Smith) protects the citizens of Los Angeles but leaves horrendous collateral damage in the wake of every well-intentioned feat. That's OK with Hancock; he doesn't care what people think and is just as likely to be found dozing on a park bench as saving a damsel in distress. However, after saving the life of a PR executive (Jason Bateman) and meeting the man's beautiful wife (Charlize Theron), he realizes that he may have a sensitive side after all.

Audience Reviews for Hancock

  • Feb 02, 2016
    A satirical superhero comedy that bears terrible acting from the entire cast and flimsy plot, extremely disappointed at Charlize Theron. There's nothing to be praised about a pretentious film cashing in on the teenage audience.
    Sylvester K Super Reviewer

    A superhero movie that lacks its potential form of "super". Hancock is a predictable film that has the spark but doesn't have the fire. No doubt, Will Smith, as well as the special effects, is outstanding in every way, but the film's familiar storyline and lackluster twists is just as a bummer and mess as the protagonist himself. 3/5

    I didn't love it nor did I hate it, but the film really suffers from poor pacing and a laggy plot.

    Seems to be alright until the Gemini powers storyline kicks in. Honestly, it just makes this movie weird.
