Will Smith stars as an embittered superhero who leaps tall buildings in a
single bound while cursing and slugging down bourbon. After he rescues
good-hearted PR man Jason Bateman from an oncoming freight train, Bateman
offers to return the favor by giving him an image makeover. As popcorn
movies go, this is fleet, funny, and even thoughtful: its central question,
nicely underplayed by director Peter Berg, is why power and altruism never
seem to intersect. With Charlize Theron (92 min.).
