Summary: Long and dull with a few nice action scenes.
For some godforsaken reason, they tried to make a sensible and complex plot out of the traditional "Incredible Hulk" story. By the time the director has established backstory and four major characters (you can tell he wanted to do a fifth as well), over an hour has passed, and we're left with army chasing the Hulk all over the west. The Hulk takes on all kinds of physical abuse, seemingly impervious to it all, with no good resolution in sight. The story? It sucks. The emotions on the completely computer-generated Hulk? Dull. About the only good parts of this movie are the 50's sets and the nonhulkian special effects. Overall though, I'd have to say the producers fucked this one up... they took a simple story and made it needlessly complicated and boring.

Summary: hmm....
This one confuses me, good plot, action packed, but definetly not as good as spiderman. A good movie but not one I would run out and get right away, Its okay just not like i expected it, like my freind said they butchered the hulk, but i like the ending, although alot of the movie was predicatble and i could have done without the comic stripes during the movie.

Summary: How sad, a boring action movie
Sadly, they took what could be a good action movie and made it boring. Not even someone nice to look at like Jennifer Connelley nor the standard big-budget action sequences could save it. The only thing that could have saved this movie is if it was 1hr 20min instead of 2hr 20min. Perhaps not even then.

Summary: Amazingly boring for a comic/action flick
There wasn't any one thing to point at as the thing that made this movie bad, but there wasn't anything to redeem it either. It just was. After about 10 minutes you give up the hope that it might improve. I think that even fans of the comic will be bored beyond belief. It just was lacking from start to finish. There were one or two cool visuals, but nowhere near enough to justify it existing.

Summary: Not a whole lot going for it
While there's nothing particularily disagreeable in The Hulk, It also has next to no entertainment value. There are moments when you can see the "vision" they were persuing in the film, but it's just not that interesting. No reason to see this unless you're a die-hard comic book fan.
