Movie review of Hancock

Hancock - 5.5/10
Directed by Peter Berg
Cast - Will Smith, Jason Bateman, Charlize Theron

Plot Summary
John Hancock (Will Smith) is an unhappy and reluctant superhero who is living in his own world. For some unknown reason, Hancock is depressed and has started drinking very heavily. Always when in the process of saving people from trouble, he tends to damage state property that comes up to millions. Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman) offered to help change the public view of John after saving Ray from being run over by a train.

Review
The 1st part of the show was pretty good, started off well. The 2nd part was when everything went down hill. It somehow or rather it lost it's story.The show was hyped with loads of ideas but failed to deliver.
The execution was poor The acting was above average , the CGI was realistic and editing was alright.

Best Quote
Ray: People don't like you, Hancock
Hancock:Do I look like I care what people think?

Boy at bus stop: [taps a sleeping Hancock] Hancock!
Boy at bus stop: [hits him to wake up]
Boy at bus stop: Hancock!
Hancock: What, boy?
Boy at bus stop: [points to TV screens] Bad guys.
Hancock: What, you want a cookie? Get the hell out my face.
Boy at bus stop: Jackass.
Hancock: What?
Boy at bus stop: You heard me.

Rail road crossing crowd: Your breath smells like alcohol!
Hancock:That's cause I've been drinking bitch!
