Reviews: Hancock

Had many intriguing ideas and I felt that it could have been much better! It's still enjoyable though!

Unlike the previous review I actually enjoyed the concept of Hancock's and Mary's past and I believe that this film would've been a lot better if they found a way to balance out the drama of the third act with the humour of the first act as well as maybe making references to his past in a more subtle way; or maybe instead of film this could be integrated into a sort of mini-series?

Half the movie is worth watching

The first half of this movie is a funny and surprisingly touching story, not only about a superhero cleaning up his act, but a deeply broken man learning how to care again. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, it'll move you.

And then they introduce a second super, and it's all downhill from there. Touching story evaporates for the old, tired cliches.
