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

It's disposable fun, best summed up by Banner himself when asked how he feels during his transformation: "There's just too much noise... it's difficult to remember anything at all."

A very standard summer actioner that delivers reasonably well, if straight down the middle, on audience expectations.

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

This high-intensity rage and the resultant property damage are not just interesting metaphors: they're boffo entertainment.

Leterrier is nowhere near Lee as a craftsman, but he's much more comfortable with the demands of lowbrow genre filmmaking.

About halfway through The Incredible Hulk, Ed Norton (Bruce Banner) gets his hair cut. Hair is not the only thing that winds up on the cutting room floor.

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.

Marvel's Hulk reboot delivers plenty of Hulk-based action and several fan-pleasing moments, though it's let down by an underwritten script.

All in all, The Incredible Hulk is a satisfying trip into the green unknown of man's anger.

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

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.

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.

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.
