Hancock

I just saw the Will Smith featured, July 4th weekend, midweek opening night show of the 4th superhero movie of the summer. Here's my short review:

Flaws, twists, comedy, drama and great special effects in an enjoyable summer film of Biblical proportions!

Here's a little more:

  • Will Smith plays the character of Hancock as well or better than any of the superhero movies I've seen this summer.
  • Charlize Theron is really versatile!
  • Superheroes aren't just the physically invincible ones.
  • Pay attention and you'll find 'Ogre' from Revenge of the Nerds
  • Read Genesis 6:1-4 after you get home from this film.
  • I loved the ending -- it went well with the whole film
Hancock 2? Probably not, but maybe . . .

This is quite an interesting review of the movie! :-)
I however have not watched this one yet, but I would like to.
I'm especially intrigued by your suggestion to read Genesis 6:1-4, about the nephilim; Certainly Has my curiosity perked!

Whoa -- you're up late like I am -- I just posted this a few minutes ago. Enjoy the film when you see it!

Okay, I was thinking about seeing this film - mainly because I LOVE Will Smith, but now I will go for sure. Thanks for the review, Kirk!

We love to go to the movies, but there hasn't been much to see in recent weeks. However, we are preparing for a great girl-party weekend on July 18 for the premiere of Mamma Mia. I'm flying my daughter Kathryn home from Orlando because it's a special show to us. Hope mothers and daughters everywhere see it together.

I hope you like the film -- I think I'm going to see Mamma Mia too -- saw the stage production. Cassie is a huge ABBA fan . . .
