Hancock (2008) Film Review - Will Smith, Charlize Theron

Plot Summary - Action-packed film starring Will Smith as Hancock, L.A. based superhero/immortal with a bad rep. He's surly, drunken, and does a lot of damage when he saves people and stops criminals. One day he saves a PR guy (Jason Bateman) about to get hit by a train - the guy decides to help Hancock improve his image and turn him into the beloved superhero he should be. Hancock goes to prison, and gets mixed up with the PR guy's wife (Charlize Theron) who has a secret of her own.

Review - This was fun, *extremely* light entertainment, a bit predictable - loaded up with some really well done special effects, I must say. It included a bit of humor, which helped - I am liking Jason Bateman more and more these days, I've seen him in several films over the last couple years, he's got a kind of real subtle comedic style I like. Nothing great as far as the film as a whole - but was good enough to hold my interest for it's hour and a half length. Rating - 7/10 stars
