This superhero comedy probably has one of the most intriguing premises ever for a superhero film; what would happen if a rude, obnoxious drunk was given superpowers, and everyone expected him to be a hero, but he didn’t want to be? That is a premise that is wide open for comedic potential. Unfortunately, this film only takes advantage of it for the first half. Then, once the film’s midway twist is revealed, the film suddenly becomes the very generic and boring superhero film that it was initially lampooning. It’s a shame, because the first half actually was pretty good, and Will Smith was a great choice for the lead, but it’s biggest sin is that it doesn’t fully capitalize on its fantastic premise.
