Re: Hancock - Grading & Discussion

An interesting but not great movie. Very odd structure. The twist happens about ten minutes too soon and the X-Files writers' influence of "less exposition=better product" is definitely there. But in this case weakens the storyline.

Act Three got pretty disjointed for awhile and the whole thing about proximity was very inconsistent. Likewise, the origin explanation was pretty shaky and unsatisfying. Think: the explanation of who or what was behind Project Quantum Leap.

Still, it was above average, a good cast, some terrific effects, and the fight in the hospital was pretty damn amazing.

Out of curiosity, did the two people who voted "below average" and "poor" post their reasons? Or see the movie?
