Movie Talk – Will Smith as Hancock

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.

  1. I’ll probably see Hancock when it comes on DVD. The 18mth won’t sit long enough for a movie, so I’m waiting patiently.

    Loved I am Legend, I bought the DVD. The alternate ending is worth the DVD. Watch it again.

  2. I saw Hancock the other weekend. I’m a Will Smith fan too and Hancock was really good! The twist in the middle – that was pretty cool! I like the storyline overall.

  3. I went to see Hancock on this past Friday(18th).. I thought it was a very good movie. We were warned before hand about the twist in the storyline, the transition was not the smoothest, but after you got through that part – it was cool.
