Hancock was an alcoholic, but he has superpowers. he used his powers to stop crimes for the city but his actions indirectly caused million of damages to the properties. he was often scoffed by everyone because of that, but he continued his doing n ignored everything else. Ray happened to just finished an unsuccessful meeting, trapped on the railway with an incoming train. Hancock saved him but again, caused the train to derail n almost hit another driver. Ray was one of the first man to thank Hancock for his effort. he offered to improve Hancock's public image, which Hancock hesitantly accepted. he first started out by asking Hancock to allow himself to be jailed for a certain period of time. when the city crime rate rose, the Chief of Police came n contact Hancock himself. with a new costume, Hancock stopped a bank robbery n was applauded later. he became a popular celebrity in the city. Hancock later met with Ray's wife, whom he discovered to be a superhuman as well. she claimed that they were the last of their kind, he had to find out if that's the truth.
Hancock wasn't like any typical superhero film, but it started out strong, having us completely following the story instead of criticizing its abnormality. the down side of the film was not having a main villain to create its climax, giving us a feeling that something was missing, that we were still hoping for something to come out n fight. but it was truly wonder what Will Smith can do for the film. no matter how awful his character started out to be, his charm n likability never did reduce throughout the film. instead, we found ourselves laughing hard n enjoying the humor!
