confronts them but the hero always comes out on top, gets the girl, and leads a normal life.
I've been drinking, bitch!
Hancock puts an end to the "same old, same old" routine of superheroes. Will Smith plays a seemingly homeless bedraggled Superman like character who seems to put the "super" in everything BUT "hero": Superdrunk, superdirty, supermean. This is the first superhero movie where the cost of wrecking a city to save the people is actually realized, and the city hates him for his high costs. When he saves the life of a PR man, however, his life is destined to change. There is obvious tension between the PR guy's wife and Hancock, and halfway through the movie the secret is revealed (telling you here will ruin the entire movie).
Hancock was delightfully funny and a refreshing change from the superhero movies we're used to. I thoroughly enjoyed it and Will Smith really gave Hancock substance. Even the ending was just how I like it to be (but I won't divulge how that was either). It is definitely worth the $8.50 at the movies and a spot at the very top of my list of favorite super hero movies. Keep 'em coming, Will Smith.
