  • I thought “Hancock” was a stunning movie with many chilling surprises. Charlize Theron was brilliant, and her coldness towards Hancock was extremely relevant and played an important part towards the end. Jason Bateman played a fantastic role as a supportive and faithful friend. Will Smith was clearly the star, as he transformed from a rough and hard man, to a kind and brave hero. The script isn’t frequently laugh-out-loud funny but it’s consistently amusing. Also, the action scenes are exciting, and the conclusion of the film is wonderfully bittersweet. Definitely well worth your money!
