Hancock was a bit of a surprise. It’s a story about a superhero who’s down on his luck and is looking for redemption. It was a genuinely funny movie that only descended into cornball cheese a couple of times. I knew nothing about the story before I went to the movie, so there were a couple of very unexpected bits.
It’s not the best story in the world, but it works pretty well for a dumbass blockbuster movie. I hope they don’t try to make it into a franchise because I don’t think we need another Superman. Come to think of it, I don’t think we need Superman at all. 🙂
