I actually enjoyed Hancock. Probably because I'm a big fan of Will Smith. Haha.

... Will Smith was good, the character he played was original and cool....

... and then Charlize showed up, and the whole movie just collapsed. Also, it was lacking a proper memorable villain.

BTW, Condorman seems to be missing from IGN's list.

Plus there was a nice movie called Sky High which focussed on future superheroes and sidekicks going to a special school together...

I've never met anyone that didn't like Hancock after seeing it more than once. I wasn't digging it at first either, then I watched it again and now I love it. I knew a few people that hated it too, and I said just watch it again and now they all think its a good movie. I don't know what it is, but give it a second shot and you might change your mind.

Other than Robocop I don't really care about the other ones. They left out "Superhero Movie" and some others like that are whats going to kill the genre. Leave comic book heroes to the comic book makers. They don't become icons for no reason.

It's not a terrible movie, but...can we stop it with the "one word sets the guy off" thing? That's SOOOO old.

Well, I liked Darkman and RoboCop. The others I could have done without. Well....the tv show "The Cape" could have been really good...I think they needed to work on a little bit and some of the characters just weren't right but the story line was good. Sometimes it just takes someone that know what to do with the story once you get your hands on it.
