    • Hancock was filmed on 35mm and, according to IMDB, it was finished at 4K, presumably the source for this 4K UHD release and, by all comparative indications, the 2008 Blu-ray as well.Hancock is another...

    • Hancock makes its UHD debut with a brand-new Dolby Atmos soundtrack, replacing the standard release's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack. This review is based on a 7.1.4 setup, which is the "traditional" seven-channel...

    • While Hancock contains no new "supplements" on the UHD disc, it does offer a slick new menu system (and presumably the early standard for Sony UHD releases) in which different pages are selected by scrolling...

    • 'Hancock' soars with terrific Atmos sound and tight UHD/HDR visuals. The future is here! Sony has released its first wave of UHD Blu-ray (4K/3840x2160p resolution) discs. We've posted a companion article...

    • Hancock is a fun and creative, and overlooked, Action/Superhero movie that offers a superb performance from Will Smith. Though hardly a classic, it's a good movie and one that will welcome back viewers...

    • Given 'Hancock's $200 million-plus domestic gross, I expected more substantial extras than we get here. There is no commentary, deleted scenes, or the like, which suggests Sony may be planning a double-dip...

    • It's a shame when a film comes along with such a sure-fire concept, only to squander almost all of its opportunities. 'Hancock' is just such a movie. It's got a nifty idea that's ripe for pop culture satire...

    • While 'Hancock' isn't everyone's cup of tea (it certainly wasn't Peter's), it has its moments and was fun to revisit for this review. As an Ultra HD Blu-ray, I loved the visual and aural upgrades -- 'Hancock'...
