Synopsis:
Will Smith explodes into the screen in this action-packed comedy as Hancock, a sarcastic, hard-living and misunderstood superhero who has fallen out of favour with the public. When Hancock grudgingly agrees to an extreme makeover from idealistic publicist Ray Embrey, his life and reputation rise from the ashes and all seems right again- until he meets a woman with similar powers to his and the key to his secret past.

Unusual idea - Hancock review by JD

Spoiler Alert
14/01/2010

The plot is basic but different. It starts with a superhero who is uncouth, destructive and unpopular. You can guess how the plot goes from there and you would be right. Will Smith plays it well but could have spent his time better.

Not bad. - Hancock review by Andy

Spoiler Alert
14/10/2010

The premise of a grumpy, drunk, antagonistic super 'hero' is brilliantly conceived if only adequately realised here. This is a role that is well within Smith's abilities and as such it feels like a bit of a throwaway performance. This may be all that was required however in this nicely paced, humourous action film. It's light on gravitas but breezes effortlessly past, the biggest gripe being the Charlize Theron story thread which occupies the final act and feels almost like an afterthought. Despite the minor grumbles, it's quite good fun. The sort of film the mark of 3 out of 5 was made for.
