Hancock: Emphasis on the Cock

 

I have just done you a MASSIVE favour! Now you don't need to watch this massive pile of donkey shite. You have just seen all the good bits and to be honest I just fell asleep watching it.

The film struck me as an extended “what if Mr Bean was a Superhero” comedy sketch. When Hancock stops being an Asshole (yes the trailer is “sanitised”) he is still a completely unlikeable nobhead. The film also never really explains why he bothered being a supe in the first place? Why not just slip away into society?

The twist relies on a coincidence of absolutely herculean proportions. To be in the right place for this to occur he has to save a random man from being hit by a train in a queue of traffic. Good job it wasn't the guy behind or the film would have been a lot shorter. Damnit maybe it should have been him after all.

Additionally if you dislike handheld amateurish zooms and camera jerkiness then I'm afraid you have even more to hate. The film made me seasick. Buy some bloody steady cams!

You may sense a little animosity from me in this review. Well sorry about that but I am sick to death of Hollywoods laziness with these things.

I am in the habit of posting an Amazon link on these reviews but please do yourself a favour and really DONT BOTHER.
