I’m going to admit this publicly: I am a BIG Will Smith fan. I mean really big. I mean Fresh Prince of Bel-Air big. I see him as a big kid. You probably think I’m crazy, right? Well, I’m not. I’m talking about Will Smith, the actor, the guy I see on screen. I have no clue how he handles his business or his personal life, and to be honest, I don’t want to know. Let’s just keep Will on the screen for now.
That said, I saw his new movie, Hancock, on Monday. After I am Legend, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I am Legend just didn’t work for me. What’s this about an actor doing a movie with no other people. Strikes me as a bit ego-centric but I’m getting off topic here.
Anyway, Hancock was wonderful! I enjoyed it a lot. The movie got mixed reviews, and lot of the major reviewers made not-so-nice comments about the second half of the movie. Well, the second-half made the movie for me. Hancock is the perfect date movie–something for him, something for her. After you watch it, and I recommend that you do, you’ll see what I mean.
Hancock is rated PG-13 “for some intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, and language.” Hancock’s language is atrocious, I have to admit, and unnecessarily so. I don’t think it added to his characterization in any way.
If you go see it, let me know what you think.
