This is everything a Hulk movie should be, and it's likely to become the surprise hit of the summer season.

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.

From its tropical anger management to a strictly platonic not so incredible hunk, this heavy on the muscle mass and light on the drama Hulk is not exactly new and improved, but does work its own brand of differently conceived mega-action magic.

This is a broody, moody action movie that never quite gets the blood boiling.

Leterrier has achieved some of the best action sequences ever, but not at a human cost, which is really remarkable in a summer comic book blockbuster like this.

There comes a point when all this action starts to feel a bit mechanical.

The film does stand on it's own two feet, thanks mainly to Norton who should have demanded having Banner run a little more, and Hulk smash a little less.

An improvement over the first Hulk feature, it is still a far cry from the qualify of work achieved with Iron Man.

To sum up, all the deeply ruminative dialogue you need here is: 'Box-office smash!' Still, thanks especially to Norton, this Hulk is credible.

In close-up the Hulk is more cartoonish than scary, but when he's ripping armed vehicles to shreds? Kewl.

[An] enjoyable aspects of the re-boot is that Norton's Bruce Banner seems so physically frail, that when he finally lets his inner beast out, the contrast is striking.

The Hulk is one of Marvel Comics more unsuccessfully developed superheroes. He is more of a scared animal striking out at his tormentors rather than a thinking being that acts with a conscience.

Leterrier's reboot might be a tighter, more coherent movie than Ang Lee's freaky-deaky, artsy-fartsy 2003 Hulk. But it's also way less interesting.

But if you love crap it's what you might well want as you wait for the better movies of this summer to come.

I'm still not too enthusiastic about the character, but the film is fast-paced, well-acted, and captures that elusive 'comic book feel.'

Do we really need another Hulk, following so closely on the very large heels of Ang Lee's 2003 action adventure with the conflicted Marvel comic book superhero. As it turns out, yes, we do.

Yes, this Incredible Hulk gets very angry, and fortunately for comic fans, you'll like him when he's angry.
Steve Persall

We get just about the right amount of science-speak and emotional longing from Banner and Betty between brawls.

Variety wins the day: You might see Hulk fighting in an airy green pasture or a nighttime metropolis, and the villains change and develop throughout the film, rendering it redundancy-free.

The sheer craft directors such as Leterrier lavish on them is awesome to me. I can't imagine how they orchestrate all the little pieces of film they require to build their big set pieces... [But] Why do they bother?
