Has plenty of funny, even tender moments until it veers in a different, messy direction an hour in.

Matthew Turner

It's let down by a disappointingly uneven plot, painfully underwritten characters and dodgy effects.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 17, 2008
Smart enough to use the CGI madness in service to the story, rather than just ending and scene or conflict with a big effecty showdown. (I'm looking at you, Transformers!)

It's definitely a mish-mash, but really good performances.

Squeezing every bit of originality out of its concept, Hancock fails on so many levels that it's surprising the film isn't a bigger success with audiences.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Less like a complete movie, Hancock plays out more like the first two episodes of a television series shown back to back.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4.0

(...) Una buena idea no hace necesariamente una gran película, y Hancock está lejos de ser perfecta. Aún así vale la pena y Will Smith está perfecto en su rol titular.

Most of Hancock's faults can be forgiven because Will Smith creates a quintessentially American hero: flawed, frayed, but always sacrificing for the sake of others.

"Hancock" is two films jammed together. The first part, deserves an "A" (Kudos to Jason Bateman), but the second part is clearly a B movie. I'll average only to a B .

Hancock suggests the Colin Powell 'Pottery Barn' argument, but before it gets really interesting, veers wildly off course.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Hancock is a movie that tosses the genre cookie cutter under the bus.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Hancock isn't by any means a dead loss, but it could have been a lot better.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

July 9, 2008
It's a pointless, plodding and just plain ugly effort which fails on just about every level.
| Original Score: 1/5
Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
July 9, 2008
The phony mythos turns into equally spurious pathos that plays like bathos because not one iota of the sentiment or sympathy has been earned.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Rob Vaux
Flipside Movie Emporium

Hancock endures by finding the right rhythm to match its star, and by lashing enough amusing moments together to provide a trim 92 minutes of entertainment.

'What are those jammin' sounds? Is it a musical jetstream of crunk?''No, it's Hancock on approach! Use runway Six Left, Hancock! All jiggy for landing!'
Full Review | Original Score: C

Smith's invincibilty at the box office may come down, for this film is a mess. Not even his charm and personality can save this train wreck.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Christopher Smith

There are more problems afoot than just its misleading rating, beginning with the story itself.

David Cornelius
July 7, 2008
The structure of Hancock is a bold risk that supplies more storytelling ambition than your more typical summer popcorn blockbuster.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Christian Toto

Hancock tries to reinvent the superhero movie - until it loses interest in its own story.
