Hancock Revealed

There have been movie reviews that leave you with a thumbs up or thumbs down, but not this one.  This one makes you say, “Hmmmm.”  Looking at the commercials for Hancock familiarizes the unsuspecting audience with the “average” traits of Hancock.  He’s an alcoholic, he curses, he’s homeless, he’s a bum and oh yeah, he’s a black man.  ‘Don’t worry boys and girls, when there is trouble afoot leave it to Super…no not Super anything…Hancock.’  Recognize any stereotypes that parallel a male ethnic group?  Remove your rose-colored shades and read this review.  You’ll feel like you’ve swallowed the “red pill.”  Maybe all movie reviews should be written from this perspective.
