All Critics (219) | Top Critics (45)

The climax is a bit of a yawn, but most of what precedes it is vigorous and sharp.

A more satisfactory adaptation of the spirit of Stan Lee's Marvel character.

It won't change your life but you'll walk away smiling.

There's not an excess of exposition, and the pricey CGI Hulk at his disposal is more angrily expressive than the mute one employed by Lee.

Top Critic

Rather than go to the trouble of crafting a dramatically satisfying conclusion, The Incredible Hulk" blows the audience off and takes the air out of its previous solid work by ending with what is essentially a shameless trailer for the next Marvel movie.

Before his initial transformation inside the bottling plant where he works, Banner warns, "Something bad is about to happen." He's right.

Audience Reviews for The Incredible Hulk

Ed Norton comes through and as always love Tim Roth. Liv Tyler does well also. Overall this movie did a good job of rejumping the hulk franchise and continues to set the table for Avengers.

John Manard

Super Reviewer

The acting is rather bland, no-one gives an outstanding performance and the plot is too stereotypical to have much depth. Stereotypical it may be, but nothing incredible about this Hulk. The same plot devices one must have seen in quite a lot of superhero movies already, with hardly any new/appealing elements to watch out for. All the same, kids MAY find it enjoyable.

1/10 for a couple of credible moments.

Ang Lee's attempt at Hulk didn't turn out too well, but THIS one is plain terrible.
