Movie reviews for Hancock

2014-04-15  Niels Risgaard Hansen: 7 out of 10

Refreshing new take on being a superhero – a bit thin story though.

I really like the way that the plot starts out with a superhero not being content with his life and feeling depressed. In a way you sympathise for him and kind of feel where he gets it from, but as the story evolves, I got a bit let down but the background. It is still quite good, but just a bit too thin for my liking.

Will Smith does a really good job playing Hancock. I might get flogged for this, but his performance here might have inspired him for his role in Seven Pounds. What I mean is that you really feel his pain and sympathize for the poor fellow.
Despite the cool name, I have never really liked Jason Bateman. His does a good job in this movie however. I just have a hard time imagining him playing a different role than the whiny husband – as he does here.
Charlize Theron is a classic beauty and she does a good job as well. I am not fully convinced about her character though.

The effects are crazy and wild as they should be in a superhero action movie like this. I think my favourite part is right at the beginning when Hancock crashes into a high-way road sign. You might argument that things are a bit over the top, but what did you expect?

In general a good superhero movie, which surprisingly is not based on a novel or comic book. If you like superhero movies in general, I would recommend this. Despite of some flaws and let-downs it does have quite a few good moments as well.
