Will Smith and Jason Bateman in Sony Pictures' Hancock - 2008

by Garrett Godwin

Will Smith is back this summer to save the world once again in Hancock, in which he played a foul-mouthed, boozing, unlikable homeless reluctant superhero. Hancock doesn't know who he is, where he came from, or why he's on Earth. As the poster said, he's not your typical superhero. Even though he fights crime and saves people, Hancock isn't popular with the public -- for he leaves destruction in his wake, costing the state of California billions of dollars.

Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, The Kingdom) co-stars as Ray, an idealistic public relations representative who tries to help Hancock clean up his act -- whether Hancock likes it or not. Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster, The Italian Job) portrays Ray's wife, who is connected to Hancock somehow -- but you have to see the film for yourself to find out what the connection is.

Unlike the handsome and suave action heroes Will Smith has portrayed in Independence Day, the Bad Boys and Men in Black movies, Hancock should very much be like one of the characters in the Marvel Comics Universe. Hancock is an very complex, complicated, anti-superhero that is full of angst, human frailties, inner turmoil and conflict, and sees his powers as a double standard -- both a blessing and a curse. He has the qualities of being either an reluctant hero or anti-hero, which Hancock is a little bit of both. Like Spider-Man Hancock's not interested in doing good at first, but throughout the film, he realize that he has an calling and learns that with great power comes greater responsibility.

Just go to show us that heroes aren't perfect; they're just like you and me.

Hancock continues to rise heroically to theatres now.
