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.

What Hulk smash most? Hulk smash all hope of interesting time in cinema.

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.

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.

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

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?

It's dismaying to think of all the wonderful performances Edward Norton has given in movies nobody ever saw. This one is high-octane slumming that will keep him in Bentleys for years.

In their determination to make a reliable action movie, they forgot to make an interesting one.

A smash-and-slash affair. This probably bodes well for the franchise but ill for those of us who think the world would be a better place with at least one less conflicted comic book antihero glutting the megaplexes.

It moves well for the most part, it delivers a worthy bad guy, and, in Edward Norton, it has a hero constantly on edge and on the run, a more swaggering and modern version of Bill Bixby's Banner from the '70s TV series.

Broad, loud, straight-ahead and raucous, The Incredible Hulk may not be the smoothest or smartest movie ever made, but it sure captures the spirit of its giant green protagonist.

Careful not to repeat the past, The Incredible Hulk does a lot of things Lee's The Hulk didn't: It's lighter and faster-paced, it's funnier and it embraces (instead of ignoring) the 1970s TV series that furthered the character's popularity.

The sad truth is, a movie Hulk is less a force of nature and more a pathetic weakling.

Its familiar genre pleasures are all on the surface.
