Storyline Heading
With great power comes great responsibility -- everyone knows that -- everyone, that is, but Hancock. Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock's well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - This is an effects-filled superhero action-adventure, but despite concept and star Will Smith's appeal to young children, parents should be warned about the film's more rough content, such as fairly frequent harsh language and alcohol. Charlize Theron has a much more prominent role than the commercials and trailers make it out to be.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good "Hancock” is a lot of fun, if perhaps a little top-heavy with stuff being destroyed. Smith makes the character more subtle than he has to be, more filled with self-doubt, more willing to learn. Jason Bateman is persuasive and helpful on the PR front, and it turns out Charlize Theron has a great deal to feel odd and penetrating about.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 159 moviegoers:
TEENS:About two-thirds of the teen males loved "Hancock." The other third rated it above average, which is still quite good. The female reviews were only slightly lower. Just over half loved it. Half of the remaining reviews were above average. The rest rated it average. Since no one disliked "Hancock" I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND "HANCOCK."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Over three-quarters of the guys loved "Hancock." The remaining reviews are average, which means no one disliked "Hancock." Recommended.
About three-quarters of the ladies truly enjoyed this movie. Fortunately, most of the remaining reviews are good/average, which is OK. Only a small number rated it below average. Recommended.
ADULTS:The male reviews are good, but not great. A little better than half truly enjoyed "Hancock." Fortunately, the remaining reviews are mostly good/average, with just a few rating it below average. I can recommended it but not highly. The females enjoyed it more than the males. Over three-quarters loved it, rating it "Very Good" or higher. Only a few rated it as low as good/average. Highly Recommended.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
There are heroes... there are superheroes... and then there's Hancock (Will Smith). With great power comes great responsibility -- everyone knows that -- everyone, that is, but Hancock. Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock's well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. The public has finally had enough -- as grateful as they are to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what they ever did to deserve this guy. Hancock isn't the kind of man who cares what other people think -- until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), and the sardonic superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be Hancock's greatest challenge yet -- and a task that may prove impossible as Ray's wife, Mary (Charlize Theron), insists that he's a lost cause.
