This review is from: Hancock [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
`Hancock' is a film of 2 halves. The first half is quite funny and amusing and shows real promise and then for the second half the whole tone changes and it feels more serious and struggles with what it initially set out to be. Following Hancock (played superbly by Will Smith) who is a superhero who hasn't got the best people skills, you see how he eventually befriends a marketing consultant and how he turns his life around to be accepted by society. That is the first part of the film and the bit that I enjoyed, the second half then follows a completely different tack (which I won't state here to avoid spoilers) and concludes the film in a whole different way than you were expecting. The acting is pretty good from all involved and Jason Bateman always manages to crack me up. The effects are good but don't carry the film and although the ending lets this film down, this is still a good way to spend 90 minutes and makes for a fairly entertaining film. Don't expect anything too high brow and be prepared for a weak ending and this film should entertain you enough. Worth a viewing.
