Hancock

The movie Hancock has an interesting concept of a down and out loser superhero who does his job but is unappreciated by the public and authorities.

It isn't so much an action movie, nor a comedy but tries to be more of a dramatic movie. It tries to pack so much within such a small time (barely 1 1/2 hours) that there is hardly time for many jokes. (You can count them on one hand.)

If you don't know, the movie had to go through additional shooting due to concerns about certain scenes. Therefore the story didn't seem to gel together and it comes out like a patchwork of many things combined together.

I still feel that the concept is good enough for a sequel, but hopefully they will fine tune the direction and editing.

My verdict: 3 stars out of 5 (I expected better from Will Smith after his performance in I Am Legend)
