ok. but a bit off beam and way out. wouldn't watch it again but ok to check it out and see what it was about.
Hell it was a good watching, End up seeing it 3 times.
Not one of Will's best..... Very slow to start and nearly turned it off...Wife went to sleep... but it did get better. OK not good.
funny,enjoyed the action.
Good movie, though it left me wondering about their true origin since there was no explanation how they came to be.
Good movie one of Will Smith's best.
Nothing out of the ordinary here, but a good, fun, action flick is nice sometimes. Enough funnies to keep me smirking throughout. Leave your brain at the door, sit back and just enjoy the ride. I quite enjoyed this one.
Four stars. Would have been 3, but the ending granted it another.
Movie was okay, i was a bit disappointed in it as I really like Will Smith
Will Smith did an excellent job of portraying a super hero
Down and out superhero undertakes an image remake and lessons in anger management. A movie that delivers less than it promises. Slips into predictability towards the end. 2.5 stars
Performances are OK, but storyline is ridiculous. Would only be one star without Will Smith.
My partner thought it was great .... could have been because of seeing Smith in the nude .... I thought it was medium. YES makes a big change in the story mid way through .... and looses the charm of it.
Really enjoyed the first hour but the rest of the movie was like a different movie entirely. It had heaps of potential but didn't carry through to the end.
Good movie. Would definitely recommend if you are into super hero, super power movies.
The worst movie ever. The plot didn't make sense - it was like two movies squished into one. The first half had some redeeming features and was quite funny - they should have followed it through. But the second half was some random, completely unbelievable love story. Awful Awful Awful movie - what were they thinking?!
Very cute, fun kinda movie. I normally don't go in for films like this but I do like Will Smith. It was worth the watch for sure
An enjoyable twist on a super hero movie. Glad I didn't bother seeing it on the big screen, but definitely an enjoyable Friday night movie.
was just ok. I guessed the main plot early in movie - predicatable. Husband fell aslepp on couch
The premise of this movie - superhero on the skids meets PR man looking for a cause - is,mmm, interesting. Putting aside your disbelief the experience is very enjoyable with Will Smith and Jason Bateman well-cast in their respective roles. Charlize Theron demonstrates again that she is unafraid of the quirky and the kink in the tale is a neat variation on something that could have ended up really cheesy.
Thoroughly enjoyable, unique and far-fetched storyline. Great for people who are bored with superhero/action movies and looking for something fresh and quirky. Suitable for older children too. You might even get a lump in your throat near the end!
Good film. Will Smith was brilliant- as always! Thought the storyline got a little silly but the special effects and soundtrack were awesome!!
Very different type of superhero movie. Thought it was going to be really silly after the opening scene, but there was great character development and a good story line. Really enjoyed watching the movie, even my wife got drawn into watching it after she was initially not that interested.
I thought this movie was great. A bit on the odd side....but definately not your standard super-hero type action movie.
this was a good movie which we enjoyed
Light, funny and different. Great family entertainment and well worth renting.
I was bored senseless with this movie - it seemed pointless and Hancock is just unlikeable. Turned it off after 45 mins. A shame because both Charlize Theoren
Very dissapointed with this film.
i went into this expecting a great Will Smith movie, and i have to say i was let down a little by the at times confusing and generally dissapointing story line. a good enough movie for a thursday night in but i wouldn't go to any special effort
I actually didn't think that much of this film - overall rather disappointing.
Funny in some parts, but not the best role that Will Smith has ever played.
Great movie similar to the supermans etc. but I found its story-line and action better.
This is a terrific movie. A little different to what I expected after seeing the shorts on t.v. when the movie was just out at the cinemas. Definately not your run of the mill super hero.
Again this worked fine and its a great movie thankyou
Completely not what I expected. I found it a very interesting concept and quite funny in bits.
loved it, Always good to see will for a light hearted laugh with a little twist.
I'm just not understanding why this is rated so highly. Just an excuse of Will Smith to strut around looking kinda-cool.
There's plenty of action and special effects but not a lot in terms of decent plot. It will leave more questions than answers - maybe that was the aim - but when you actually think about it the story is a pile of you know what.
At first I was thinking just a modern taken on Superman. Then it descended into some half-baked Watchmen type scenario. Then it just kind of ended.
Overall, I don't think it has much going for it unless you just want a really unthinking 80 minutes in front of the box and then move on.
I always passed this movie over because of the silly DVD cover. Yeah, I know, Don't judge a book by it's cover. I finally borrowed it when I discovered it was Will Smith. I didn't recognise him with those dumb glasses on. It was really good. Lots of laughs, an unexpected plot twist and interesting to see a super hero in a non-stereo typical role. Worth watching.
Very entertaining film with good performances by all. Charlize Theron and Will Smith make a good pairing. Was disappointed that it ended!
O.K. - Not as good as I thought it would be. The plot sort of unraveled towards the end, as if it couldn't make up its mind whether it was a comedy or a drama. It all got a bit messy.
A few funnies but not enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. A little bit too much Hollywood for me.
ok i suppose, a bit boring but still worth watching.
Not as good as I had thought.
a great twist on a clasic genre
Quite a promising movie and a good twist on an old story. It ended with a bit of a whimper though,which was a bit of a shame.
Some good ideas but a little disappointing storyline.
Great story good special effects , Wil Smith didnt do too badly in this one , worth watching
Good movie to pass the time away
well made fun to watch quality film
Interesting new take on a super hero movie. Mildly amusing, and plenty of good action. Has an interesting twist, but it gets a bit crazy, to the point where I didn't really understand what was happening. Weird...
A little far-fetched, but got better as the story line unfolded.
I like the story line it is different and has a nice edge to it. Lotsa fun
Loved the humour at the start. Enjoyable
Worth watching ... but below par among action superhero films. If you are expecting Dark Knight, Spiderman or Ironman, you'll be disapointed. But if you enjoy something more like "My super ex-gf" then you'll probably like this too.
Many unconvincing special effects. It's an action comedy that doesn't have much of either. Still, I suspected I shouldn't expect too much of this film and I wasn't disapointed.
I really enjoyed this movie. A different angle on the super hero genre and Will Smith delivers with his usual consistency
Great movie. Very entertaining. Don't expect anything too deep but great fun. Enjoy the ride.
I liked it alot. Good cast and a ice story but it stressed me out a bit too much in the end because i wasnt expecting such a twist. He's a great superhero, minus the uniform.
Great special effects and thought Smith and Theron really worked. However the storyline was a bit weak - they did their best with what they had to work with.
Actually a lot better than I expected. Well worth watching for just Charlize, she's totally smokin !
Pretty good. Better than I expected with a great twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Great cast and not really like the same old superhero movies.
Really good movie, a lot better than I expected. Will Smith really pulled it off and was very believable his his role. He's the common mans superhero and shows what it could really be like.
Really, funny. Enjoyed it, a lot. I even let my daughter watch it, it is that good!
This film was SO much better than I was expecting. Sometimes it's good to approach a film with pretty low expectations - this one was a really pleasant surprise, and although its' Hollywood and does occasionally dip into schmaltz it doesn't stay there. Excellent premise nicely realised with a neat little twist halfway through. This and Iron Man are probably the most intelligent of the Superhero movies.
AWESOME MOVIE!!!!!! Very original movie with a lot of unsuspected twists. What's not to love about that? Will Smith makes for an awesome bum/superhero. Not a whole lots of laughs but definately one to watch.
Great, a must watch if you like superheroes , just fantastic, will smith rocks in this movie once again!!!!
It's definitely not a film worth watching again. Nothing special about the action nor the story line. Just throw in a super hero with invincible power then make the character know what he knows best in leaving his damage behind and have the influence of someone that wants to help him become a superhero for the public to depend on. If you compare this to Spider-man then you'll understand what I mean.
Come on! This movie turns out to be a BIG joke. I thought of "My super Ex girlfriend" how RIDICULOUS it was. I wonder if Will Smith would have signed for that if he didn't get paid millions. So much $ spent to get such a bring movie. What the...
Probably one of the best action comedies of recent years. Truly showed the versatility of Will Smith.
Excellent movie. If I had of known it would be so good I would have watched it sooner or even at the cinema. Would have liked the movie to be longer. Watch this if you are a Will Smith fan.
This was a lot more serious then i thought it would be, it wasn't what i expected but still got a few laughs. Jason Bateman was brill as always.
was ok but I wouldn't rave about it
Not a good story line but it is funny
great movie. original. great twist. did not see that coming !!!
All was going well for this movie but felt a few of the twists and the ending did not really serve the film well. Will watch it again and like a good stew have a hunch it may be better the second day.
A different superhero movie and it works. Will Smith is great as usual and has Jason Bateman resurrected his career or what? he seems to be in every second movie we watch now. The special effects are second to none, and while the story does get a bit silly, it's lots of fun getting there, plus a good does of drama.
Very different to any other super hero movie. Great movie!
Loved it. Liked it way better than superman or batman.
This is not the kind of movie I have come to expect from Will Smith, but never the less it is still good. Good story, interesting concept and not your super hero type movie. I recommend you give this movie a go and you should enjoy it.
Hancock, crap story line, funny but weird! Not really a Will Smith film. Not really a superhero film either... Very different. Immortal God's that lose their power when they get closer to each other.
Different view of supehero genre.
awesome movie, good for a laugh. interesting ending!
I reckon that this is really cool, a lazy, homeless superhero who does'nt care what others think of him, and he does what he wants. Who's gunner stop him? NO-ONE!!! That's who! Awesome movie, gives another side of what it's like to be a normal person, with power!
