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.

Despite the profusion of computer-generated effects, which rousingly bring the green guy to life, I often felt, for better and for worse, that I was watching a comic-book movie reconceived as a piece of serious mythmaking.

Unlike your average comic-book blockbuster, The Hulk isn't a bad cartoon. It's a bad modern Greek tragedy.

Are comic books art? Maybe, but this leaden, pretentious flick about Marvel Comics' big green id, from the overrated Ang Lee, is just schlock art for the NPR set.

Lee tries to spruce it all up with heavy use of split-screen, which is sometimes clever and sometimes distracting. But nothing can distract us from the overriding reality that too much of Hulk is a sulk.

This messy, disappointing, self-important and utterly humorless version of the Marvel comic book character may be the toughest flick with a green protagonist to sit through since The Grinch.

The filmmakers said it was going to be smart -- really smart -- like all of Lee's movies. Instead, it's big, dumb and fun.

Schamus and his fellow screenwriters have taken the most pompous elements of superhero comics -- the humorless archetypes, the italicized declamations -- and inflated them until they nearly burst with the strain.

The Hulk is a seriously repressed movie, and like its hero-victim, Bruce Banner, it doesn't know what it wants to be: serious and thoughtful, or big green money-making machine.

I can't say that The Hulk is my favorite comic-book movie or that it moved me, but I admired Lee's inventiveness, even when his movie wasn't as much fun as I expected it to be.

Ang Lee has boldly taken the broad outlines of a comic book story and transformed them to his own purposes; this is a comic book movie for people who wouldn't be caught dead at a comic book movie.

A dark and serious psychological drama cum sci-fi spectacle, The Hulk is incredible for what it attempts rather than what it achieves. For some viewers, that will be enough.

Ang Lee's interpretation of the Marvel Comics hero is a sci-fi/action thriller art film that tries valiantly to re-create the graphic- novel experience, but lacks a certain insanity.
