We were invited to the premiere of Hancock the movie in Singapore on Monday night. It was held at Vivocity, and screened on 9PM.
There, we saw familiar TV faces like Randall Tan, alongside with wife Melody Chen, and the Power 98 DJs Jensen, Harry and our mentor Mario Ocampo Lajarca Jr. (quite a mouthful).
We bumped into CTV’s Daniel and Mr. Foo (so quiet nowadays) too.
In a nutshell, Hancock is not your average superhero who saves the world and the neighbourhood and well-liked by the people. On the contrary, the citizens hates him for his cockiness and arrogance that the Goverment decided to put him behind bars. On an occasion where Hancock saves a (useless) PR man from a train accident, he decided to help Hancock – to change his entire image.
It turns out that the PR’s wife was Hancock’s ex wife and they are of the same kind of species with special power. The story ends with a twist, where Hancock learns humility and let his ex wife be together with the PR man.
Throughout the movie you will get to see Will Smith signature pout, as well as his funny “good job” that will bound to crack you up.
I give Hancock a 3.5 out of 5.
