Hancock
2008
**½
Director: Peter Berg
Cast: Will Smith, Charlize Theron, Jason Bateman, Eddie Marsan, Jae Head, David Mattey

John Hancock is an alcoholic hobo with superpowers. When his erratic and destructive heroics turn him into a pariah, a struggling PR guy decides to help him rebuild his image. This jumbled action film seems to make up its story as it goes along. It starts as a superhero parody and is at its best in the midsection. Then a plot twist turns it into something darker, but the big dramatic finale fails to make sense or impact.
