"Hancock" is the only film I've ever seen go from great, as in, actually awesome, to dogshit all within the same movie.
Seriously, people give this movie crap, but the first half was phenomenal. It was original and creative, the characters were interesting and unique, and the acting from Will Smith and Jason Bateman was great.
Then they did the plot twist with Charlize Theron and it made the movie fucking awful.
God the wasted potential pisses me off so much. I think this could have actually been one of the best superhero movies ever made if they didn't fuck it up.
It was the Will Smith curse of the first decade.
The stupidity didn't end once it started
Fuck, man what a great concept, superhero that doesn't give a shit saves some beta loser and they try to reclaim his image
They even had fucking femcock use his stupid line but with a different trigger word
god was i pissed
honestly people normally hate remakes but I REALLY wish they would remake Hancock with the same actors and everything, just fix the second half. Hell they haven't aged that much you wouldn't even have to reshoot the beginning.
How can one man star in so many movies with great concepts but shit executions?
I honestly dont know
I think Will Smith is a really good actor but fuck its hard to keep defending him when so many of his movies are shit. Like you said, his movies have cool premises, its almost as if he hears the movie pitch and signs on without reading the script.
Or he signs on because he wants to put his braindead son in a movie
Is there a reason she did an Eartha Kitt impression? It seemed weird to me.
well yeah but I don't think Jaden did a bad job. For what they were going for he did fine. I cant speak for his later work but I cant fault him for karate kid.
Yea, that first half was fucking amazing.
It was like a black version of One Punch Man, except Hancock was actually interesting, and I wanted to know more about him.
Then.. its like the writer had a fucking stroke or something, and the rest of the script was just made up on the spot by the first capeshit fanboy they could find on the set
>then suddenly... she's a superhero too!
>and.. and.. she's stronger than him!
>oh oh yea! she can also control the weather!
Fuck that shit.
It could've been something special, but its like they were too afraid to not have some sort of bullshit superhero fight in a superhero movie.
