About the Movie

Academy Award nominee Will Smith (Best Actor, The Pursuit of Happyness, 2006) stars in this action-packed comedy as Hancock, a sarcastic, hard-living and misunderstood superhero who has fallen out of favor with the public. When Hancock grudgingly agrees to an extreme makeover from idealistic publicist Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman, Juno), his life and reputation rise from the ashes and all seems right again--until he meets a woman (2003 Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, Best Actress, Monster) with similar powers to his and the key to his secret past.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Hancock makes for one unexpectedly satisfying and kinky addition to Hollywood's superhero chronicles. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: It doesn't take itself as seriously as it should, and undercuts a final act that should have and so could have packed a mighty emotional wallop. – Robert Wilonsky, Village Voice, Sep 19, 2008

Rotten: Train wrecks are intrinsically spectacular, and Will Smith's new movie offers a doozy. Two of them, in fact. – Tom Charity,, Dec 17, 2008

Fresh: As popcorn movies go, this is fleet, funny, and even thoughtful: its central question, nicely underplayed by director Peter Berg, is why power and altruism never seem to intersect. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

This is one of the best movies of 2008!!!! Will Smith has once again proven to us that he is a great actor.

He DoEs It AgAiN ;0

I had watched this movie the 1st day it had came out a plethora of action with a jaw dropping twist, I can give it credit for that but, if you're looking for a Spiderman, X-men type of movie it's not 4 u.

HANCOCK!1 of the best movies ever!

During the summer, while I was in Virginia, my sister and I saw Hancock, and it was hilarious! Hancock is not just a action movie, but it's also a comedy. So, BUY IT!
