The following things failed to save Hancock from being a lame movie:

Will Smith
My Favorite Retard
Delightful music by John Lee Hooker
Writers who obviously read "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex"

I mean, seriously. How could you put so many good things together and get such an OK movie? It wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. The effects were good, the acting was pretty good, the plot wasn't bad. It's hard to put my finger on what was missing. Maybe somebody who's seen it can help me out. All in all, I'm thinking B- range for this one.

We're waiting to pick it up from the library. I'll let you know once we've seen it.

Ummm... that was me, commenting from my wife's account. That's what happens when I use her laptop and I'm not careful.

Yeah, I wanted to love this movie. And I did like it. But I didn't love it.

I think part of the reason is that it doesn't have a consistent tone-- sometimes it's gritty and serious, sometimes self-aware and funny, sometimes over the top and dramatic. Makes it a little disorienting.
