Bad Behavior. Bad Attitude. Real Hero.
Hancock is a down-and-out superhero who's forced to employ a PR expert to help repair his image when the public grows weary of all the damage he's inflicted during his lifesaving heroics. The agent's idea of imprisoning the antihero to make the world miss him proves successful, but will Hancock stick to his new sense of purpose or slip back into old habits?

Stripped down to its core this is probably the most romantic of all superhero movies. Man and woman immortal and bound together by cosmic fate live through centuries being chased by bad guys, only having each other to protect. But they can't be together or else they become mortal. In order to save his life the woman leaves the man upon learning he won't remember her after waking up from a life threatening injury, which he sustained while protecting her. Many decades he has become Hancock a no-good, booze drinking, alcoholic excuse of a superhero and she is a married housewife with a son. They meet again and the love story that has been going on for thousands of years continues in modern day LA. Now THAT'S original storytelling, Thanks to its unique mythological undertones Hancock is easily one of my top 3 superhero movies of all time.
