I've always wondered that if superheroes were portrayed real in the movies, how come they always get away from the collateral damages they make during their crime-fighting scenes? I mean shouldn't the people, the mayor or the president be furious about the properties that were destroyed in the process of heroism? It's no fun to see everybody shout "hurray" after the messianic did. Didn't at least one of them think "WTF happened to my car? Damn you, whoever superhero you are!" LOL.
Okay, fine, they risk their lives but don't they also risk the financial standing of individuals negatively affected by their superheroism. I mean com'on! A fight between the hero and villain always include buildings crashing, debris falling or cars being squashed.
This film really made my day by giving me the picture of what may be the reality if heroes were real; that they can also be a menace to the society. I've always believed in the saying, "there is no such thing as perfect". Therefore, I was glad to see in this movie that superheroes ain't always perfect, ain't always good. They too have the tendencies of being the villain. Moreover, it has pointed out the fact that in love, sacrifices are made. The movie really stirred strong conflicting emotions in me. I was awed by the last part where Hancock had to go far from the one he loves just to save her from dying. Oh, and I never got to know what Hancock's real name was. That added to the thrill. Maybe there'll be a sequel.:) I think it's an honest superhero film.
