Hancock (2008)

Ending / spoiler

(8 votes)

Hancock (Will Smith) stops a robbery at a store and is shot by one of the thieves. Since he was recently close by to Mary (Charlize Theron), he loses his powers and becomes mortal (the closer they are to one another, the weaker they get). He's rushed to the hospital, Mary visits him and explains that they've been together and apart since many thousands of years ago. 80 years ago, when they lived together in Miami, they went to see Frankenstein at a movie theater and they were attacked. Since they were together and he had no powers, he was injured severely (with a strong blow on the head he got amnesia). Mary left Hancock at the hospital and as soon as she went away, he got his powers and immortality back; she realized that they had to be apart so that he could have his powers and be a hero. Ray (Jason Bateman) and his son also visit Hancock and suddenly the lead crook from the hostage situation at the bank and two other convicts attack. Both Mary and Hancock are severely wounded and the lead crook almost kills Hancock but Ray helps out right in time and cuts off the crook's other hand. Hancock speeds away from the hospital so that Mary can regain her immortality. One month later, Ray and Mary are still together. Hancock continues to fight crime and he draws Ray's All Heart logo on the moon. During the end credits, Hancock responds to a hostage situation and it's suggested that he beats the crap out of the perpetrator because he calls Hancock an asshole...

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Mary visits Hancock for the first time at his house, she arrives from the air and crashes down on the ground, after a discussion inside they both walk outside together and Mary is shown getting into a car. In the next shot shown from above the house the car has disappeared and they both fly into the air.

Suggested correction: No, we see her drive up in the car, not fly in. But you are right that when we see them take off the car is missing.

You must have seen a different version of the movie I saw her land there, it's on Netflix.

You're right. I just saw the version on Netflix and she flies in, while the version from disc I have shows her drive up with a minute of dialog between them next to the car that is not in the Netflix version. I find it very surprising that there are two versions with that major of a difference.

An extended cut was released on DVD and Blu-Ray which has a couple extra scenes as well as modified scenes (including Mary driving to Hancock's). Netflix would have shown the theatrical cut version. (Or if I had to venture a guess, the UK release version as Netflix has a tendency to use those versions for some reason).

Question: I'm not sure if I was seeing things but during the fight between Hancock and Mary, when it goes all windy and stormy, at one point it cuts to some people who are screaming and running away. I thought I saw a figure that appears to be made out of rocks or similar material and about 10 foot tall, it wasn't our hero or heroine as they were not in that scene so what on earth was it?

Answer: I saw it, too, and wondered. He's a street performer in L.A. that just happened to be around during filming. See: http://io9.com/5023487/hancock-giant-robot-mystery-++-solved
