Hancock : Academy Award nominee Will Smith (Best Actor, The Pursuit of Happyness, 2006) stars in this action-packed comedy as Hancock, a sarcastic, hard-living and misunderstood superhero who has fallen out of favor with the public. When Hancock grudgingly agrees to an extreme makeover from idealistic publicist Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman, Juno), his life and reputation rise from the ashes and all seems right again--until he meets a woman (2003 Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, Best Actress, Monster) with similar powers to his and the key to his secret past.
Music Soundtrack B.S.O Hancock

    The first half of this movie is an absoloute masterpiece. Hilarious. The second half is rather confusing though, thanks to the plot twist. Still, you should watch it.
  • Hancock (Unrated Version) Where is it?

    By Tah'B
    This movie is (alittle) different (in a good way) and funny, but the unrated version with the additional scenes is better, that being said(or in this case, written), where is the unrated version??? Bring it back. Thanks. The extra footage adds more flavor and entertainment to the movie.

  • A Strong (no pun intended) Will Smith Film

    By J. Gregory
    It took me a while to see this movie, and I didn't quite know what to expect from the reviews and ratings it received. I was also wary of the supposed plot twist that ruined the movie for quite a few people. I'm a big fan of superhero movies, and judging from the trailers, it didn't look like any superhero movie I've seen before. So, how did it turn out in the end? Actually, pretty well. I liked the interesting angle that the film took when looking at superhero movies. Like in Iron Man (one of my favorite movies of all time), the hero doesn't start out as the heroic type. However, Will Smith prefers to play his character with a more bitter and depressed edge to him, rather than Downey's confident and cool style. Both approaches work well, and Smith gives Hancock a surprising amount of depth, when others might have made him shallow. The plot twist in the third act was undeniably strange. I mean, of all the superhero origin stories, this one is probably the weirdest. Also, it is just plain hard to follow. Does this would break the movie, then? Actually, no. The story doesn't require that you know every detail of its twist to keep moving forward with the story. And from there, one of my greatest compliments to the movie sees us through: the performances of Smith, Theron, and Bateman. All of them react to the twist in very relatable and well-acted ways. Without those actors in their roles, the twist would have failed miserably. One of my bigger problems with the film is that its villain is weak. He was kind of shoe-horned into the movie, and I come to expect more from superhero villains than what was given. Also, there were some moments that I thought were too wrong for the movie. They added to the irreverence of Smith's character, but I didn't like them personally. In the end, it's the performances of Will Smith, Charlize Theron, and Jason Bateman that keep this movie out of mediocrity. The movie is worth seeing for their acting alone. Not to say that's the only good thing about it, though. It's funny, it's unique, and it is well worth at least one viewing. Four stars for Hancock, and here's to the sequel that is soon to come!

  • HANCOCK!!!!!

    By Heath Ledger's Brother
    This is one of the best movies of 2008!!!! Will Smith has once again proven to us that he is a great actor.
  • He DoEs It AgAiN ;0

    I had watched this movie the 1st day it had came out a plethora of action with a jaw dropping twist, I can give it credit for that but, if you're looking for a Spiderman, X-men type of movie it's not 4 u.
  • First half was good, second half... not so much.

    By madkow
    The twist that occurred about half way in the movie killed it. The movie had some real potential with it's first half. It was funny and filled with action. Then "the secret" is revealed and then nothing makes sense or of any logic. A completely random thing is pulled out of nowhere from the desperate director to make things "edgy". Well, it ruins the plot and destroys the movie.
  • Awsome!!!

    By Zman7878
    This movie is awsome!!! Don't listen to the others, any movie with Will Smith is good. Best actor and movie i've seen besides i am legand.
  • This one was...

    By NJ
    Paricularly, I love Will Smith, and a majority of his movies. This movie, taking a side trip from the regular cliche superhero, exposes the flaws of the character, introducing to the audience a rarely seen side of the superhero genre. In general, this movie was....okay. Good enough to watch, but not necessary to purchase. I'd suggest renting this before hand, it does have some clever comical moments, but in parts the plot seemed to lack. Overall, I enjoyed it, but I felt empty handed once it ended.
  • HANCOCK!1 of the best movies ever!

    By clayface111
    During the summer, while I was in Virginia, my sister and I saw Hancock, and it was hilarious! Hancock is not just a action movie, but it's also a comedy. So, BUY IT!

    By Black Phantom
    the whole plot of this movie was lame. Everything happened waaay too fast with waaaay too many twists and turns. Will Smith was great, but the movie was less than good.
