There are heroes... there are superheroes... and then there's Hancock. With great power comes great
responsibility — everyone knows that — everyone, that is, but Hancock. Disgruntled, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock's well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. The public has finally had enough — as grateful as they are to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what they did to deserve this guy. Hancock isn't a man who cares what people think — until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey, and the unpopular superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all.
