It's a bird! It's a plane! IT'S WILL SMITH!!!

Next to Men in Black and Shark Tale, this is probably Will Smith at his best! This superhero movie is awesome! Like other superhero movies, it has plenty of violence, but what may be a little more surprising is the way Hancock drinks alcoholic beverages. Parents, this will be a great movie for your kids if they're 13 and older! There are also some funny scenes in this movie as well!

a PG-13 and UNRATED family friendly comedy/action movie

this is a funny action movie. funny like the "Rush Hour" movies but some strong language and hancock is a violent superhero. like when people call him the a word he does physical violence on them. this movie comes in both PG-13 and UNRATED versions. but family friendly.

I really like this movie and i think Will Smith does an awesome job. Hancock is an alcojolic with some problems, so i cant really say this has good role models, but later on he does start to do good things. It isnt too violent but there is a ton of violence thrughout the movie. There is a lot of language for a PG-13 movie. Hancock uses the f-word once and the s-word is used in about double digits. The rest of the language is mild, but there is one thing that NEEDS to be noted: characters (including kids) say a-- about 40 times. If you tolerate the language than this movie is fine. I really liked it. Also, when Hancock is in jail he shoves a mans head up another guys butt.

Perfect for tweens and up, not for younger kids.

Good movie, I think just some elements are too racy for younger chidren, may cause nightmares and/or crying for very little kids. I saw it when i was 11 and it was fine but my little brother found it frightening and the language was too much.

Pretty funny, but mostly in offensive ways.

All to be concerned over is the language: A little boy calls Hancock an "a--hole" near the beginning of the film when he says he won't save anyone. Hancock tells everybody that they're "all f--ked up" after he saves a man from a train crash. Hancock yells at a few people in the neighborhood and calls them "pr--ks". The words "a-s", "a--hole", "j--ka-s", and anything else including the word "a-s" are used throughout the entire film, with other words like "s--t", "f--k", "b--ch", and "sl--".

Don't get the unrated version.

In the unrated version, there is one scene where Hancock and some random woman are having sex in a trailer. You don't see anything but you hear it all, with some explicit sexual language. Other than that, it's fine. 10+ for rated version, 13+ for unrated

Hancock

Will Smith is a very funny character. This movie was pumped full of action and humor, along with a great storyline.

Too violent for younger kids but ok for tweens

although the special effects aren't the best, the movie is very good. hancock is a troubled guy but turns into a really nice superhero. the plot may be hard to follow for younger kids, and the violence is probably to intense. people are nearly killed using bombs strapped to their chests, gun fights, stabbing, and shooting. if you are over eleven though, a perfect movie!
