Default 'Hancock' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter has reviewed 'Hancock.' Like many, he says the film is a disappointing
hodgepodge (the film has a 38% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes). This Blu-ray sports fine video and audio, but pretty weak extras. Give it a rent.

As I said before, the right Director would've completely turned it around, Peter Berg (The Kingdom) wasn't right for this. I did expect at least 4.5's on A&V.

I did enjoy and will pick it up. Thank God, I got one of those free Hancock BD Preview from Best Buy.

I still can't believe they went with this Cover. The WORST cover I've ever seen.

Will Smith jumped the shark with this movie.

I agree, that is an awful looking cover.

Jumped the shark with Hancock? How quickly we’ve forgotten Wild Wild West.

Do you really think another director would have made this any better? The story just didn't work, and there were numerous characters that were outright mis-cast.

The director is basically in charge of getting performances out of the actors and setting up shots. I don't think improvements in either area would have made up for the disappointing narrative.

The first half of this movie was really entertaining (certainly blew my low expectations out of the water), however the last half sucked balls. Its a pity too, cause Smith, Theron and Bateman are all great actors and the idea for this movie was pretty cool and original.
