' Hancock'

After lots of buildup, "Iron Man" and " The Dark Knight" were expected to be good. "Hancock," though, went under the radar. Hard to be under the radar with Will Smith as your lead, but the film did not receive the attention of other superhero releases. The Charlize Theron twist was well kept and added a zing to an already solid movie. Metacritic compiled middle-of-the-road reviews, with most liking the film right up until the twist. Didn't bother us.
