Somehow I had never seen this film, but was really impressed.

I really enjoyed the movie too, even though a lot of peeps hated on it.

I really enjoyed it but hated his "trigger" word.   For broadcast TV they had to replace it with another word (I forget which word).

Asshole.

Hancock would last about 5 seconds driving in New York.  :)

watch it again with this thesis.


This film could be retitled: NEVER DATE A WHITE CHICK.


It looks good but it's actually pretty anti-black.

did you ever read the original script? TONIGHT, HE COMES?  Bears no relation to the final product to me.  Always interesting when the story and characters are changed so much that it becomes new material.

I won't say the movie is anti-black. Hancock looked like a black man but was actually some sort of god. And the reason they couldn't be together had nothing to do with race but with the nature of their powers. Hancock's alcoholism? Not related to him been black but to him having no memory of his past and his inability to have sex without killing women.


PS: Still waiting for the sequel. Don't think it will ever come though.
Don't get fooled by the bombs that I get I'm still I'm still Saddam from Iraq.
