Todd McCarthy‘s review of the 92 minute-long Hancock, posted today at 4:10 pm, is pretty much a flat-out pan. He calls it “an intriguing high concept undermined by low-grade dramaturgy,” adding that “this misguided attempt to wring a novel twist on the superhero genre has a certain whiff of Last Action Hero about it, with Will Smith playing an indestructible crime-buster in a pointedly real-world context. Although it will inevitably open very large, this odd and perplexing aspiring tentpole will provide a real test of Smith’s box office invincibility.”
