Never again will I watch this man's films. Never.
We went to Hancock this evening and I had to leave the theater about an hour into the film because I was so motion sick and nauseated that I thought I was going to throw up. Almost the entire film is shot in "shaky-cam," the exceptions being a few set-up shots.
If this is artistic license, then feh on his artistic taste. There is no story-related reason for this film to be shot as if the camera man were being tossed on wild ocean waves--and frankly I don't think the technique added that much to the stories (Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, for example) where it made sense within the context of the film (in both cases, the conceit was that the films were shot by a video-camera operated by one of the characters).
Avoid this film. Not only did the story suck, but you'll be hard pressed to tell because of the horrible camera work.
