And if you're still not willing to forgive Hancock, and least there is the scene where he shoves a guy's head up another guy's butt.

Hancock is what happens when you have talented people working on quality material: it's really a no-brainer that it works so well.

This is a different take on the superhero genre with an interesting, offbeat twist.

A relatively satisfying ending that leaves just enough of an opening to warrant a sequel if the box office receipts are right.

Smith and Bateman are great, and the first half of the movie is terrific. The second half...well, you'll either go with it or you won't.

The fourth of July will not be the only day for fireworks, July 2nd will definitely heat up at your local theatre when Hancock is released. Be sure to check it out.

While the film never quite reaches an Alan Moore-level deconstruction of the superhero mythos, it has a fun time offering up all the joy of a big-budget action movie without taking things too seriously.

The most adult of the new wave of superhero dramas.

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

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.

Less like a complete movie, Hancock plays out more like the first two episodes of a television series shown back to back.

(...) 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.
