To be honest, I thought I was going to have another bitching session with this movie after Wanted. With bad reviews from La Faghag and other not so good review for it. None the less, I always keep a zero expectation policy so that I can enjoy the movie and have a rather unbiased judgement.


So why the almost bitching session for this movie?

The movie started off looking very cheesy and cartoon-ish with all that childish flinging of the car actions. But that soon turned out to be part of Hancock's character development. Will Smith acted the part of Hancock pretty well. There's a distinct difference from being the childish and attention seeking Hancock to a mature and heroic Hancock.

Free tickets!

One thing for sure, this isn't your typical superhero movie. Hancock gets indicted for public property damages through his reckless heroic behaviours. Sure he rescued people but he just couldn't give a rat's ass to do it with minimal damage. Massive destruction to public properties and heedless theatrical stunts.

Then came along Ray Embrey and things changed for the better. Hancock became the hero that the city of Los Angeles needed. Yep, heart warming fuzzy wazzy.

Overall it was an enjoyable movie. Light and easy watch with funny humours here and there. Not the best movie of the year but just a nice chill out movie to have a relaxing time.

You know you love me.
