Whatever problems it has as a story, at least Hulk tried, honestly and desperately, to push the comic book move into new places emotionally and stylistically.
| Original Score: 6/10
The Hulk lacks personality; not a great movie.
| Original Score: 2/5
The best comic book adaptation I've seen so far with an excellent cast and top notch special effects...
A turgid, CGI-Frankenstein reject
The spectacular special effects and Lee's use of split screens provide some relief in a nonetheless tedious tale in which Nick Nolte (looking much like his recent mug shot) provides several unintentional laughs as Banner's father.
The film almost matches the inner conflict of its titular character, intermittently bogged down even as it soars to seemingly impossible heights.
| Original Score: A-
Lee and Schamus try on film genres like The Silence of the Lambs' Buffalo Bill tries on human skin.
The only Ang Lee film where he shows even a modicum of originality in his direction or any real personality or interesting visual flair.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
What a strange and fascinating contraption Hulk is.
| Original Score: 4/5
The way Lee orchestrates the film is closer to painting than directing. At times, it feels as though a graphic novel is being laid out on screen.
| Original Score: 3/4
[An] enjoyable summer behemoth.
A talented director wasted on a poorly plotted and weakly acted film. Not even the visual effects are salvagable
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Nice as it would be to report that Ang and his co-writer/producer James Schamus had regenerated the summer blockbuster, we gotta poop the party.
The Hulk, like its lead character, is just too big.
| Original Score: 2/4
It still looks and feels like a superhero movie, even if it didn't turn out exactly the way we wanted it to.
| Original Score: 3/5
Audiences expecting to turn off their brains and sit back for another blast of mere eye candy may stagger out of this 138-minute epic wondering what hit them.
| Original Score: B-
I cannot recall seeing a tank being lobbed at a copter with such finesse.
| Original Score: C
Hulk se distingue de la masse par son caractère humain et par les thèmes qu'il aborde.
| Original Score: B+
Rent it, fast forward through the first forty minutes, and enjoy the rest. Well, except the last ten minutes... okay, maybe give it a miss.
It is not a must-see in my book, but at least it has a story... and that's more than a lot of this year's big budget effects flicks can say.
| Original Score: 8/10
