A hard-drinking lush finds himself thrust into superhero mode in director Peter Berg's unconventional look at the private life of a crime-fighter. Will Smith stars as the embittered do-gooder whose lifestyle is more akin to a rock star than a role model, and who has grown as disillusioned with his once-admiring public as they have of him. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
A truly screwy, deliciously funny movie. What a cornball original plot. Whodathunk? This movie deserves to be watched for the wildly original plot (or maybe I haven't read enuf comic books in the last 50 yrs.). Very entertaining, not unlike "True Lies." Oops, I guess Robin M. and Thad M. would think me a neanderthal. Sigh.
