A darker brand of comedy that Will Smith has usually dealt in over the years, and all the better for it.

Bateman, whose name is usually mud when it comes to appearing in good movies, brings out the best in Smith the actor and the action becomes surprisingly fresh and funny.

[At first] Hancock is great fun, quirky and hilarious... Smith especially proves every minute why he's become the best in Hollywood. Then the movie takes an odd turn and goes into a whole other story, with different -- and deeper, I guess -- meanings.

... the tape is an excellent way to have fun, without question. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

I have no problem signing on to recommend this. Get it? Signing on...John Hancock... nevermind.

...an engaging and thoroughly innovative spin on the superhero genre...

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.
July 28, 2008
The most adult of the new wave of superhero dramas.
July 19, 2008
Has plenty of funny, even tender moments until it veers in a different, messy direction an hour in.
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!)
July 14, 2008
It's definitely a mish-mash, but really good performances.
July 12, 2008
Less like a complete movie, Hancock plays out more like the first two episodes of a television series shown back to back.
