      I think it's more about finding purpose and fulfillment in life. He always wanted to be a hero and help people. Being a blank slate at the bottom of society, he still followed this aspiration. She, on the other hand, always wanted a simpler life and family. And Ray saved both, helping the first to fit into society and becoming a new family for the second. So here nothing to criticize.

  • @IllisiaAdams
    @IllisiaAdams Před rokem +43

    I actually really liked the third act! I like the twist, and yes, three dudes with a gun against two superpowered beings would *normally* be a sucky showdown, but the fact is that when they are together they become vulnerable, hence the guns actually hurt now. It's a good twist!

    • @Puschit1
      @Puschit1 Před 9 měsíci +2

      Maybe for another run-of-the-mill superhero movie. The problem isn't the twist itself, the problem is that:
      a) It comes out of nowhere
      b) It has absolutely nothing to do with everything that took place in the first 2 acts
      The result is that you have the feeling of watching two different movies stitched together. And since it abandons the original theme, plot and narrative you'll end up with lose ends and an unsatisfying ending. You just got to the point where you enjoy the concept of a grumpy and raunchy superhero that does things his own way and are eager to see where his character arc gets him - and BOOM all of a sudden it's a cheesy love story and Hancock transforms into an ordinary superhero with a slightly different kryptonite. That twist could have worked for a Superman movie but not one that is all about establishing an anti-hero, which, remind you, was a refreshing thing back then in 2008.

For one, he said this to cops that were not doing so well in that particular situation and were far from having the situation under control. Second, he did not really sound like his usual self and sounded awkward. It was almost like someone who was trying to do PR and were looking for something to say. The guy he became friends with did want him to change his image. When looking back, it almost seems like he was kind of bored when he said it. Maybe that could be chalked up to him not being used to the whole noble superhero thing.

      Nope, I liked the idea of these 2 beings stay together but lose their powers or stay separate but remain immortal. That's a dope concept.
      BUT, the way it was used here felt kind of shoehorned in. The whole movie is about how Hancock is a shitty person trying to do good, but just being bad at it. Which means, he's not actually a shitty person. Then, we start to see his growth and willingness to change and actual progression.
      But, once it's revealed that she exist, the whole movie completely switches focus from Hancock's growth and development to him focusing on being with her and their history. It's like the 3rd act was meant for a different movie.

    When I saw this in the theaters, I though it was fun and funny--for about the 1st third of the film. Then I felt like, "OK, we get it. Will Smith is Super Brother." Then the weird stuff with Charlize Theron's character started happening and I was like, "Ah HAL! Now here's a FILM hiding in this MOVIE." Granted there ARE three plots and they ALL could have there own movie.
