  1. A movie likely to rally huge audiences who want to take another roller coaster ride. And though it may disappoint a few of them, it's also a film that gives you something to think and feel sad about. It smashes you -- gently.
  2. Hits on all cylinders -- a smart blend of acting, direction, editing, design, costumes and effects.

    Lee's technique is impeccable, but he's chasing more inner demons than one creature feature can handle. No wonder the audience cheers when TV Hulk Lou Ferrigno shows up for a cameo. It's a reminder of a time when it was easier being green and a Hulk could just get pissed off and bust shit up.
  4. In the end, we don't know what we're watching, an art-house superhero film or a computer-generated "King Kong." By trying to please both sensibilities, the filmmakers have pleased neither.

    The main problem with The Hulk, really, is that there isn't enough Hulk in it.

    To answer your first question: like a cross between Shrek, the Frankenstein monster, and a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robot.
  7. In future Lee can best serve his versatility by never doing anything like this again.

    Ang Lee's take on the Hulk story is clearly the superior cinematic film adaptation over it's remake The Incredible Hulk. This picture takesAng Lee's take on the Hulk story is clearly the superior cinematic film adaptation over it's remake The Incredible Hulk. This picture takes groundbreaking CGI, a very odd and rather refreshing comic-book-esc editing style, and a very well written script and characters in order to create a top notch action film. It really does the colossal badass Hulk a huge justice by showing Banner in his own, more human story and then taking the Hulk himself and putting him into some kick ass action sequences. It's a must see for any fan of superhero and/or action films, or just anyone looking to have a grand old time with a few friends. Expand

    An incredibly underrated and truly inspired comic book movie, Hulk is just as effective as serious drama, and as far removed from ordinaryAn incredibly underrated and truly inspired comic book movie, Hulk is just as effective as serious drama, and as far removed from ordinary comic book blandness as The Dark Knight. Yes the action scenes are spectacular, but Hulk contains true psychological and emotional depth. Lee's direction is amazing, and I'm truly glad that he decided to give the film an engaging story instead of rushing headlong into the clich├ęs and poor characterization usually associated with the genre. The fact that it was criticized by many for not having enough action shows how juvenile their tastes truly are. It's a great accomplishment. Leaps and bounds ahead of the reboot with Edward Norton.

But the film that is the most important is a biggest disaster, the performance of Eric Bana like Hulk is terrible, and this poor intent to do that Hulk looks like a bad and violent guy, really? because is like a Barney's friend.

    Normally I would be able to appreciate a comic book movie for what it is trying to do with the story, trying to go deeper with the character,Normally I would be able to appreciate a comic book movie for what it is trying to do with the story, trying to go deeper with the character, but not with a movie like Hulk, where every other aspect of the film doesn't work at all. The slow moving plot, underwhelming and boring action sequences, and the unconvincing performances from some talented actors makes Hulk the most disappointing movie Marvel has made along with Daredevil and Fantastic 4.
