Not great, but fairly entertaining

John Hancock is a superhero. A superhero who's also an alcoholic and let himself go somewhat. He's now quite unpopular as his issues have lead to him destroying millions of dollars of property. Then a PR man decides to help him rebuild his image...

Entertaining, and original in that this superhero is quite flawed. Quite funny at times too (it has Jason Bateman in it, remember).

First half was good, and moved along at a brisk pace. Writer and director tried to be too clever and emotional in the latter half of the movie, resulting in the fizz disappearing.

Not great, but worth a watch.

Not Loved Enough

Hancock I feel was unjustly criticized because the trailers marketed it as a goofy superhero comedy when in reality, it takes dramatic turns to show the dark side of being the only being with superpowers. However, I feel like it balances tones very evenly. The dramatic parts are very well done, and the comedic parts are hilarious. Hancock is a prime example of why you shouldn't judge a movie based on the marketing.

9/10

Falling Short Of Heroic

What would you call someone who is bad-mannered, foul-mouthed, destructive, homophobic, unreasonable, and drunken who is a liar and an asshole? Probably not a superhero. Will Smith plays Hancock, a slacker with all those attributes who also has supernatural powers. Maybe you could call him a superzero--someone with the potential to be spectacular who falls far short.

He's a reluctant hero for sure, who usually rises above his crassness only when forced to, and then leaves careless destruction in the wake of his heroics.

He meets Ray (Jason Bateman), an optimistic PR man who thinks Hancock should change his image. Ray's wife, Mary (Charlize Theron), seems unconvinced.

What follows is an unpredictable story about love and possible redemption. There are bad guys, of course, who complicate matters, but the resolution of this story feels messy and contrived. By the end of the film, viewers may feel like it was all just an origin story that served no purpose except to be the foundation for other real stories to follow. But who would want to emotionally invest in a hero that still feels less than realized, a temporary patchwork of questionable values?

One feels that an opportunity has been missed. Imperfect heroes can be quite interesting if their story makes them lovable or compelling. Hancock strains to achieve either.
