    "We'll see if this leads to a spate of "Leave the comic book movies to comic book people" stories"I certainly hope not. There are always going to be hits and misses. That doesn't mean that people should stop trying.If people gave up so easily just because of bad reviews or movies, then nothing would be made period.

      I hope you're right, but I could see comic book folks taking a bad outing from Hancock and using it as ammunition for a little turf war.

    Based on what I've been reading, the thing that turned me off was the whole "lost love" subplot (which I'll not go into detail on) that makes the film turn on a dime. If it had STAYED about a bum superhero who tries to redeem himself, it probably would work better.But it's Will Smith, so I don't forsee a bad first week. The man's got enough charisma to carry about anything.I want him to play Raffles. Or any sort of Gentleman Thief in the "It takes a thief" mold. He would just kill.He was supposed to be in the Charade remake with Thandie Newton. Oh god what a missed opportunity.
