The hero's an asshole...

I got around to seeing Hancock last night. OK, it's not the greatest movie ever made, but it has some qualities going for it. Firstly, the hero is an anti-hero - he drinks, has no consideration for others and taunts the bad guys something fierce. He leaves a wake of destruction everywhere he goes. But he's lonely. He's the only one of his kind and has no idea who he is or where he came from. A PR man tries to improve Hancock's image and does a decent job. Then everything hits the fan.

I give it a 4 out of 5 stars for having a sense of humour and actually having something of a plot.
