Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – The powerful superhero John Hancock has become a joke because of his alcoholism and clumsiness. He has also become the most hated man in Los Angeles. Though he has saved many lives, he also destroyed a lot of property, costing the city millions every time he goes into action. When he saves the life of PR expert Ray Embrey from an oncoming train, the executive is thankful and believes he can restore Hancock’s image as a true superhero. He brings the anti-hero home for dinner and introduces him to his son Aaron, a big fan, and to his wife, Mary. But for some mysterious reason Mary doesn’t want Hancock anywhere near her or her family.
Plot: Hancock is a down-and-out superhero who’s forced to employ a PR expert to help repair his image when the public grows weary of all the damage he’s inflicted during his lifesaving heroics. The agent’s idea of imprisoning the antihero to make the world miss him proves successful, but will Hancock stick to his new sense of purpose or slip back into old habits?

Reviews:

Classic case of great idea, mediocre execution. Strong performances are marred by weak CGI and a lack of a central villain.
Will Smith. That’s all you’ve got to say, and you’re guaranteed a big opening at the box office. Well, from the looks of it, Smith also guarantees you at least a mildly entertaining film, which is what we get in his latest movie, Hancock. In the hands of any other leading star, Hancock would probably end up being a below average film. It’s Smith’s charisma, charm, and unwavering likability that ultimately save the film. He can make you laugh, cheer, cry, and even root for his character (who is a total ass, as he is reminded a number of times throughout the movie) no matter what kind of shenanigans he may cause.

Hancock is not the generic superhero film and is probably one of the more ingenious ideas to come across a producer’s desk in quite some time. To me, what it seems like is that the writers of the film loved the idea, started off extremely strong, and then began to realize that how hard it is to sustain a simplistic idea over the course of a full length motion picture (and it is because of this that Hancock is relatively short). The writers’ plan to solve this problem is to throw in a totally unnecessary and badly handled plot twist to keep the audience guessing. The lack of a central villain also hurts the movie a lot. The character that serves as Hancock’s enemy in the finale isn’t even well acted. The person is laughable.

This is an action movie, so it should come as no surprise to see well done and original action in the movie. However, I felt the effects could have used a few more weeks of polishing in the editing room. The camera is also quite crampy. I also have problems with the film’s score, as it does not add an epic feeling to the film like it should have. I felt like something was missing in the climax of the film (which is not the end). The action scenes, while entertaining and original, were not long enough to engage the audience like say, The Incredible Hulk, nor were they as jaw dropping as those in Wanted.

The film’s strength rides on its three stars. Action veterans Will Smith and Charlize Theron both deliver winning performances as usual, and that should come as no surprise. Smith’s charisma is enough to make anyone happy, and it’s so easy to see why so many people love him. Theron is always a sight to behold (except in Monster, lol), and this film is no different. I enjoyed her performance the most, especially in the second act and the beginning of the third. Jason Bateman, who seems to be the bridge connecting the performances of Smith and Theron, is great as usual, and likable, marking a change from his recent turn in “Juno”. There really isn’t another performance to note, and part of Hancock’s weakness is that there are really only three main engaging characters. It should also be noted that the kid who played Bateman’s son was absolutely adorable.

Hancock is the classic case of great idea, and mediocre execution. I can see this idea being remade years from now, and pulled off even better. It’s not a fault of Peter Berg, the film’s director, as the real weakness is in the screenplay, which falters after an excellent and wonderful opening act. It’s not a bad film by any means, nor is it great. It’s in between “okay” and “good”.

A different kind of superhero film.
Hancock is set in Los Angeles where John Hancock (Will Smith) lives as a powerful superhero fighting crime, he can fly & is invincible to all injury. However the residents of LOs Angeles dislike Hancock because of the vast amounts of damage he causes & lack of modesty, feeling alone, unwanted & unappreciated Hancock has slipped into alcoholism & depression. Hanacock saves public relations man Ray Emrey (Jason Bateman) from being hit by an oncoming train & as thanks Ray invites Hancock to his home for dinner, Hancock agrees & meets Ray’s wife Mary (Charlize Theron). Ray suggests to Hancock that he needs an image makeover to make him more appealing to the public & when Hancock is branded a public menace & an arrest warrant is issued Ray feels it would be a perfect opportunity to turn Hancock’s lowly image around by giving himself up in order for the authorities & public to realise how much they need him when he is not there…

Directed by Peter Berg this romantic fantasy film is an alternative on the recent spate of superhero/comic book hero films that been released over the past few years, while a few of the ideas & set-pieces in Hancock are fun & as a whole it’s a watchable film I wouldn’t call it anything other than watchable. Available in both it’s original theatrical version & an extended ‘Unrated’ cut that runs about nine minutes longer I will be basing my comments on this shorter theatrical version. The one thing about Hancock that puzzles is the uneven tone as it can’t quite decide what it wants to be, does it want to be an all out slapstick comedy or a serious superhero film that deals with real issues or a tragic romance? Aspects of all three are here all mixed together in a very uncertain manner, the first half of Hancock is far more enjoyable than the second with Hancock a depressed hard drinking superhero who gets a rough ride from those he seeks to protect while the second half of the film introduces this huge twist that comes from nowhere. I didn’t think the twist worked that well to be honest & it just gets sillier & sillier in this sort of fantasy romance that turns to tragedy that as expected gets a nice happy Hollywood ending anyway. While amusing at tims Hancock is never that funny with the gags & jokes feeling flat, while some of the action scenes are cool it never excites that much because of the silly tone & the romance between Hancock & his sibling has no emotional impact & feels like it’s there to stretch the running time out a bit. The lack of any significant enemy or super-villain for Hancock doesn’t help either & the film feels a bit empty as a result. No explanation is given for Hancock’s origin & any serious issue the script tries to raise like prejudice & racism have little impact. At about 90 minutes long at least it’s fairly short, the pace is good & Hancock certainly isn’t boring but as I said, it just sort of passes the time rather than enthrals or really engages.

As expected from such a big budget Hollywood blockbuster there are loads of CGI computer effects sequences here, from car chases to tornado’s to people flying to general mayhem & destruction. The effects are good, you can see that they are just CGI effects but they look alright & obviously a lot of money was spent on them. Apparently conceived as a much darker film the tone was made much lighter for a family summer release which maybe explains the uneven mix of silliness & seriousness.

With a supposed budget of about $150,000,000 this has to be one of the biggest budget films ever made, there are plenty of effects for sure & lots of visual trickery I suppose. The acting is alright but it’s odd seeing Will Smith as a rude & rather ordinary person rather the quick fire one-line spouting charmer her usually is.

Hancock is a decent enough film, sure the tone is uneven & I am unsure about the giant twist but it entertains & is quite fun in it’s own absurd way. You could do a lot worse that’s far sure, worth a watch if nothing else.
