Call me crazy, but I just don't think Will Smith is that great an actor. I mean, I like him in movies like this and Men in Black, but I don't like his dramatic roles and I think he's just trying to grub for Oscars. I hated him in the Pursuit of Happyness, I hated him in Seven Pounds, but I love him in this because this is exactly the type of movie he's good at. Hancock is a very good entertaining movie and Will Smith's second best movie (first being Men in Black). It was fairly …

The movie was a good watch and humorous in general. Will Smith was awesome as always, and the other actors were pretty great too. The plot actually felt flowed pretty well, and I really enjoyed the kick plot twist. The wholesome idea of the movie, but the coordination of scenes and progression of events was somewhat hard to follow. Also, the plot about the guys trying to kill hancock was undercut way to much for its significance in the final scene. The camerawork was the horrible. It really was …

A constantly drunk and slovenly superhero was a refreshing take on superhero movies. Will Smith and Charlize Theron both had very strong performances. I personally liked the surprise twist.

I loved thhis movie and enjoyed it very much. It was very interesting, and kept me entertained 100% of the time. I liked ow it was about a bad-superhero, and it changed your view of a superhero. You dont really think of Hancock as a villian, he just doesnt save the world as someone would imagine. I like how very unexpectedly there happens to be another of his kind. And, that you find out that this "on-off" relationship between them is constant and has been going on for millions of years. …

It's really sad because the first 35 minutes of this film are witty and charming, then it just goes downhill from there with plot twists and, well, just a disaster.

Hey H'wood: just because Will Smith's movies make money doesn't mean they're any good. Give it a rest.

A good non generic super hero movie. I suggest watching it.

Hancock takes a daring approach to the Super Hero mythos.  Where as most superheroes are actually quite heroic, doing what it takes to save those in danger and be all around good role models for kids... John Hancock throws all that out the window and instead opts for a surly, mean and careless superhero who has no charisma whatsoever.  Did I mention he's played by The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?        Yes, Will Smith plays the drunk, rude and quick to anger …

I liked the second half the best. Too bad they never made a series out of it.
