It's too long for kids, it's too slow for teens, it's too light for adults. It's too deep for those who don't like to think about their movies, it's too on-the-nose for those who do, and it's completely lacking in memorable action moments for those who ar

Overblown adaptation of Marvel Comics monster saga is a lumbering, ponderous failure that trips over its misguided, touchy-feely aspirations.

Since Lee has gone out of his way to make something of great significance, he has actually called too much attention to the effort.

If Lee wanted to do Michael Bay and the Bruckheimer cigar-chompers out of a living, he could, but he must know there are better ways to "think big".

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 is an abomination in oh-so-many ways.
