How does Hancock compare to past Smith hits, such as Men in Black and Independence Day? Here's the reaction to it by various movie critics...
- Sadly, the bar is set too high and the movie implodes under the weight of its own ambitions... -- The Times UK
- Hancock comes around by the movie's end as one would expect, but the depth to which this hero sinks beforehand is occasionally startling and pretty great... -- ReelzChannel
- This misguided attempt to wring a novel twist on the superhero genre has a certain whiff of The Last Action Hero about it... -- Variety
- Superficially a blockbuster, but for those who like to read into a film a sly allegory about what America is today - and how it is seen by others... -- Kyle Smith
