I agree that the 'real world' take is funny, 'cause I know that if an ordinary person were given real powers, they'd be too lazy to use 'em. :lol I laughed so hard when I saw this, it's gonna be great.

They flashed Charlize very quickly a couple of times...

Yeah..When I was in LA in September, they had like a street block of Hollywood Boulevarde (I think that was the name of the street..) , Just outside Graumanns anyway..blocked off for 3-4 days filming a scene with a Big Cement truck smashed in the road, and people fleeing everywhere...Looked cool.

I actually was chosen to be part of a test audience for this movie tonight.

The effects were about 75% done....lots of low res computer parts for a lot of the shots. Pretty neat to see.


SPOILERS BELOW:

I actually LOVED the first half of this movie. It was really good, some nice action scenes, and good comedy (not too much either). Smith was great and I was on the edge of my seat, not knowing what was going to happen next.

Then, about half way through, it starts to go downhill. I did not like the whole Greek thing and Charlize having super powers too and the whole love triangle thing....boring. No real villains either...the main bad guy was really lame.

It would have worked out a lot better if it was more of a "Superman" movie with Hancock going around, saving the planet, etc IMO because I really loved his character! He needed a good villain to battle.

There is one GREAT scene, where the "new" Hancock come into the city, with the Superman "suspense" theme playing (music right before it goes into the main theme). It worked out great but my guess is it was just a temp track. Great sequence though and I REALLY hope they keep that Williams Superman music in place.

It was good and I know what they were trying to do but I would have liked something else better (more of the first half stuff).

Yes, that first look during American Idol is the film I wanted it to be. :)

But, they do not show any of the second and that is where it goes downhill IMO.

That first look was awesome though and pretty much the first half of the movie (part I loved).

Be careful what you wish for because you may get it. Some people are just too naive or plain stupid to gain any sort of knowledge, experience or the perspective that comes with age. They gape at the world with wide eyes and just cannot understand when they cannot win in their 367th attempt at three card montie.

A friend of mine here in Phoenix got a chance to view a test screening of Hancock - she's not really into superhero movies (like, when you ask her how "Iron Man" was, she'll say "It was just OK. Not really my cup of tea.").

She said it was a very interesting take on the superhero genre. She indicated that there were some neat twists and turns - especially involving Charlize's character.

My friend is the type of person who sees a movie once and that's it (she says "What's the use of seeing a movie again that I've already seen."). She said she actually wants to go back and see Hancock again.

I have a couple doubts and will probably watch it on DVD.

Kind of a shame that this movie has to come out during the summer of Iron Man, Hulk and The Dark Knight.

I think it's gonna get its ass stomped.

Damn, jaded much?? After the continued rehashing of really amazing comic books into terrible comic book movies, I do appreciate a litttle bit of a parting with the traditonal.

Personally I think there are very few if any original ideas in the world. The creativity comes in taking old well known ideas, stories, and themes and updating them, changing them, blending them, and shaking them up to get something that appears original. The most modern movies are retellings of the most ancient myths.

Sick Boy 82
06-13-2008, 10:09 AM

When somebody posts that they are looking forward to HANCOCK because they get to see a superhero with real problems and fawns over that..... and when that same person somehow ignores that Stan Lee has been writing an publishing comics for the last 40+ years using exactly that same gimmick ... and when they even fail to see that many other previous films have used that exact same gimmick ... I would say that being able to recognize creativity abounds in many people.

I would say that being able to recognize creativity abounds in many people.

Um yeah, first off, I wasn't the one that posted I wanted to see this movie because they are showing a superhero with a problem. Jesus, read the posts.

And I didn't say the idea of a superhero with problems is a completely new idea and has never been done before, so everone must see this because it will be groundbreaking. Yes, it has been done in comics, but I also wasn't a huge comic book fan anyways. I read what I liked, so I cannot say that this exact synopsis has never been done before.

But Hancock looks really dark and I don't believe I have seen this styling done and it done this darkly. I surely haven't seen a dark, alcoholic Marvel hero character before. So just because they have done comic books about superheros with problems, they should never create a movie about a superhero with problems, even if that is only part of the whole story.

If you are going along that line, then they shouldn't even may comic books into movies, because we have already read them, so what's the use???

But whatever, I want to see this movie because it looks good, it looks interesting and I believe that it will be FUN to see. No alterior motive involved what-so-ever in seeing this movie other than that!

And this is my 2000th post, WOOT!!!

OSCORP
07-02-2008, 10:11 PM
To me this just comes off as Will smith's ego. He sees all these superhero movies coming out in the past years and wants in on the action. But there's really not too many black superheros that are super popular to be made into movies at the moment. So they come up with this idea, An Anti-hero movie, that will be different but will still make willy a superhero.(or he just wants to do it for his kids, but the alcohol thing?) This is just the vibe i'm getting, i could be nuts. :)

Anyways it looks very dumb, my woman and i hated the trailer when we saw it in the theater some months back. I'm betting it bombs overall, sorry Will no big 4th of july smash hit this time.

DarkArtist81
07-02-2008, 10:16 PM
Yeah, I'm really iffy on it. Wanted was good, a decent movie. Jumps around a bit, but was still very entertaining to me.

But Hancock just seems like an attempt to make a superhero movie that isn't tied to any real comic book hero or established storyline. And from the trailers I already have an idea of what the big twist will be, so it just seems like a waste of time to me...

I love Will though, I'm sure he will do fine in this film. I just think the story doesn't do anything revolutionary or have enough depth to really get me hooked. I could be wrong though, I'm interested to see what people here think.

i saw it last night.... its OK. don't go in there expecting it to be Iron Man or Dark Knight quality. i do think they could have picked a better time of the year to release it. with all the summer comic book movies coming out a lot of people are gonna give it bad reviews just because they compare it to iron man, hulk, batman, hellboy.... since they are essentially being released within a 30 day period.

To me this just comes of as Will smith's ego. He sees all these superhero movies coming out in the past years and wants in on the action.
i agree.... seems like he did this movie just to get in on some of the comic book hero action. remember when Nicholas Cage was dying to get in the Superman costume?? then he jumped on the chance for Ghost Rider?? (liked the movie, but it wasn't that great) this movie was pretty funny at some times, but they really failed in explaining some of the stuff.

I heard Hancock was gutted by the studios, who weren't happy with the direction the film was taking - a dark examination of a lout anti-superhero - and of course they intervened. From what I've read and heard, it could have been a great movie and it has signs of it (the film was originally titled "Tonight, He Comes), but like Smith's previous flick "I Am Legend", it was patched up by bigwigs and studio execs.

I'm seeing the movie for myself later this week. I'm sure it'll pull in big bucks. But then again, it has to contend with Wall-E and Wanted, so who knows.

Which is REALLY REALLY SAD. That's one of the reasons why I'm watching more and more independent films these days. These idiotic studio execs seem to feel that dumbing all movies down increases their profit, which is not true.

LA Times article:


Earlier this year, Smith and Pinkett Smith garnered critical props for one of their latest philanthropic efforts: the New Village Academy. The couple poured nearly $1 million of their money into building a new private school in Calabasas that would provide financial assistance for about 80% of its enrollees and laptop computers and organic meals for every student, with the aim of grooming a "citizen of the world."

What came out in the wash last month, however, is that some of its teachers are members of the Church of Scientology and the school will use pedagogical methods called "study technology" developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.


To wit: When production on "Hancock" finished around Christmas time last year, Smith reportedly passed out "wrap presents" to the film's crew members: vouchers good for a personality test at a local Scientology center.

You can see my post on page 2. I saw this movie months ago but it was not the final version.

Did they keep the rape scene in it? The part where Wil Smith ejaculates and it goes through the roof of the motor home? LOL...not joking.
What about Charlize's character? Did she still have the long, boring talk about the Greek Gods with Will Smith? I assume they kept her having super powers?

Just curious how much was changed...I will wait for Blu Ray to watch it again but I did love the first half...before the love triangle happened.

The Superman music was great in the verison I saw. Everyone loved it.

I am not surprised they cut the rape scene and roof scene. LOL

Guess I will check it out when I can.

Can you post in spoilers more details of those scenes.

I blame the fluoride and NWO. Before I started drinking fluoridated water, I was a mild mannered individual. Now I refer to myself in the 3rd person and constantly call myself awesome. Oh yeah, Bannister is awesome.


Bannister is not awesome. Nobody who eats puppies is awesome. :peace

It appears that this film is what Superman Returns should have been.

Man, I'm SO glad that I ignored the reviews. I still hate Peter Berg as a director - his style was so wrong for this film that it's not funny.

But I really, really enjoyed the film. Smith, Theron and Bateman were all fantastic - very nuanced roles and interesting characters. You actually care about them, so the jeopardy and drama is amped up. Sure there are some "convenient" plot points, but it's really more about the characters so I can forgive.

And the superhero/gods/angels backstory seemed kind of tacked on, especially the "we lose our powers when we're together" crap.

But I really enjoyed it - much darker and not as coherent as Iron Man, but I probably liked it as much as Hulk and a little more than Wanted.

But I really want a superhero movie where Angelina and Charlize get into a fight. That would be killer.

I really enjoyed the movie but I liked Wanted more. In my opinion it goes.
Iron Man
Hulk
Wanted
Hancock

I just want to say I love the spoiler thingy.

I read the movie synopsis on Wikipedia (I won't go see the movie, I'd rather see Wall-E, Hulk, and Iron Man [again]). However I can see why the second half of the movie isn't well liked. I'm not sure that its not worth seeing though. If there weren't so many other movies I wanna see, I'd see it (even knowing the second half).

I just bought the Men in Black Blu-ray(on sale at Fry's for $13.99:banana) and it had this e-ticket thingy for Hancock. So I'll probably go watch it either tonight or tomorrow. I haven't heard anything about it since everything has been Dark Knight for me recently:o

I thought it was OK but just to show you how they dropped the ball with the marketing of this movie my wife, who's not in the know about these tyoes of things for the most part, was thinking that it was going to be much more along the lines of a comedy (Men in Black) and that's how the early trailers sold it to the general public. It was only the more recent trailers right at the time of its opening that hinted at maybe a "darker" tone.

Oh well... It was OK...

Would you're wife have paid for a ticket if she knew it wasn't a straight up comedy?

Just got home from it. I did not have any interest in seeing the film but my wife really wanted to see it. I thought the film was entertaining but it was NOT what I was expecting... I too was expecting an action/comedy.

I really liked the movie up until...
Theron just happened to be the long lost super hero wife of Smith who was alos married to the random guy that Smith saved on the train tracks.

Even with this flaw I still thought the film was a fun Saturday flick. I did have a hard time figuring out who the film was geared too. It was not a family movie IMO due to the F-Word and the many a** h*** scenes, but it also did not feel like a 100% adult movie either.

IMO this is how the summer movies are ranked...
1) Iron Man
2) Hulk
3) Narnia
4) Hancock
5) Wanted
6) Get Smart
7) Indiana Jones (worst movie by far)

and did not get a chance to see Panda, Speed Racer, or Sex in the City and I am seeing WALL-E in the morning.

You mean, would I have paid for the ticket if she knew what she was walking into? She thought it was OK-- just not what she was expecting and that in itself was a letdown.

They did a horrific job of "selling"/marketing this movie.

Yeah, but you DID buy tickets, so the marketing did it's job. If you'd known it was dark she might not have wanted to go at all.

I thought that a horrible coincidence too, but I think they addressed it when Angel said that they have to be far away or they're drawn together. Weak, I know, but at least they addressed it.

I just got back from seeing it. It was ok, but yeah I figured out that "twist" from the trailers alone. I did like the scene during the end credits when that thug talks about Hancock's little Wolverine costume:rotfl
