“Hancock” is fresh take on the super hero genre. Will Smith plays a drunken, swearing super hero who has really fallen out of favour with the public. He saves people, but he causes massive devastation and millions in property damage at the same time. Worst of all, he doesn’t care in the slightest.
One day he saves a public relations specialist played by Jason Bateman, and gets an offer to help clean up his image. Smith is great in this role and has some real comedic chemistry with Bateman. The story gets a tad murky in the last half of the film, but there is enough laughs, and creative action scenes to make this a fun trip to the movies.
