I really enjoyed Hancock. I heard very mixed reviews. The pleasant surprises were the fact that this was not just a comedy (the trailer and ads left that impression on me) and a rather surprising plot twist that suddenly comes jumps up at a really unexpected moment.
There is a sense in which it is formulaic (a gutter to glory redemption story), but the acting is strong, the twist was surprising and fun and the ultimate honoring of selfless love made it enjoyable.
