Even if there weren't script and performance deficiencies -- and there certainly are -- the big problem with both Hulk movies is that the lead character is an unconvincing CG creation.
Dude... Turn on the Sci-Fi channel and watch the late 70's TV show... No-One questioned the effects back then... look at the transformation scene (its hysterical)...
But what everyone had was an imagination... we didn't stop to think is this real enough... we use to just watch and think what if...
you've got no imagination left my friend. if your not ready to pretend when you go into a movie like this... you have no reason to go.

For its time, the TV series' effects were pretty darn good and what made it intriguing was Bill Bixby's wiry, intelligent, conscionable scientist vs Lou Ferrigno's massive,half-a-brain creation while still maintaining the essence of the man despite the hormone mad haywire. The imagination was easy to play with because it was still a real *punch me I bleed* human - Admittedly, this CG was much better than Ang's was but still leaves room for improvement - the one picture alone of The Hulk in a silent roar looks ridiculously disproportionate (the gaping hole that is supposed to be his mouth infuriates me) - maybe 4 yrs from now someone will finally get it right.

Why do people who know nothing about CG complain about it? The fact of the matter is that a green, 10 ft tall, 1500 lb humanoid will NEVER look completely real.Bonehead....
