Movie Respect Threads #2: Hancock

No Caption Provided

Short bio:

He woke up in a hospital bed with a fractured skull somewhere in the late 1920's, with no memory of who he is, what happened to him or even what his name is. The nurse tried to put a needle through his arm, and the needle just broke against his skin. His skull healed shortly after that. He took the name Hancock after the nurse asked him for his "John Hancock" (signature). As the years passed, Hancock turned to a homeless alcoholic bum living in a trailer off the coast of LA, performing acts of very questionable heroism on occasion. A public relations specialist named Ray Embrey, whose life Hancock saved from a train crash, decides to pay him back by turning him from a bum who does more harm than good into a true hero.

The movie was directed by Peter Berg, and Hancock was portrayed by the actor Will Smith.

Grabs a boy, flies with him to the sky, leaves him there and gets back down without the other kids being able to see him:

And it took the boy almost 30 seconds to get back down so he went pretty high.
