    The concept of Hanc*ck was really good and really interesting, its just a massive shame the delivery wasn't half as good as the concept...

    Also the secret 3rd God, well is literally the voice of God...

    Charlize Theron again, why? She was awful in the first one. There was no chemistry between Smith and Theron.

    Okay. Alot of people are very indifferent about this Hanc*ck. Some like it, some don't. Here's my outlook. Berg is learning. Everyone who turns to directing is learning. I don't care who you are or who you is. EVERYONE. 2nd, Hanc*ck had some flaws, but the movie was overall great. Will Smith Is amazing. Nuff said about him. And the whole villian thing, yes, he does need to fight a bad ass villian. Charlize was interesting. You all have to admit, it was different. Granted not everything is good, this really was an interesting plot twist. But overall, if this one is going to work, there needs to be a new bad ass villain with Will being bad ass now, which we already know he will be.

    p.s. I agree, just cause Tom and Will are friends means nothing.

    Although Hanc*ck wasn't good, I can see that Peter Berg is growing in his directing career. Speaking of Berg, Shocker is one of my all time favorite films.

    Damn what's wrong with some of you? Hanc*ck is the Best damn superhero movie i've seen in some time. Will Smith's characters are always really well portrayed. I'm looking forward to it :D

    Dang it! I really did NOT want Charlize back. I like her, but her character was irritating. Anyways heres hoping this is much better.

    the new hero will probably be tom cruise, because him and will smith are buddies.

    sequel to this film has to really be interesting because with the first we all wanted to see Will play a bad ass, smart ass superhero and who fights him, so we already know what he was like so we wont get that attitude from him in this one

    dude i know this movie took a lot of heat from you moviewebbers but i actually enjoyed to concept. I think that given a sequel it will have already had the first one to develop its characters and will actually be pretty damn good. Plus...who here wouldnt want to see charlize theron jumpin around again?
