Personally, I think this just skates by with a 3 out of 4 stars. The CGI was better than I expected, but the drama and storyline was ultimately unconvincing. I was not moved by Bruce Banners struggle to cope with his issue. It simply was not that convincing, even in light of the fact that this is, after all, a comic book made into a feature length film.

After the very slow start (at least the first 45 minutes) there can be no doubt that Lee is trying to give us a little more in this movie than Hulking green CGI eye candy. But at the point that the action begins, all that I wanted for the remainder of the film WAS eye candy. Yet there was still some of that storyline interspersed that had never really moved me in the first place.

I wasn't expecting much from this latest comic book film, and it didn't disappoint me.

The Hulk character was very well done, my hat is off to the folks at ILM for another bang-up job!

Jennifer Connelly put in a great performance and her radiance gives you something to pay attention to even when the storyline dragged a little.

Except for the sudden braking action the movie does near the end, it's a well-done film for what it is. The scene transitions and split-screen camera angles are interesting, and in keeping with the comic-book genre.

If this type of movie interests you, it shouldn't be a disappointment for you either.

The director really messed up on this one. It is a movie based off of a comic for gosh sakes. Spider man nailed that concept, the Hulk did not. It was if the director was purposely trying to come up with some award winning drama based off of storyline alone. Unfortunately this did not only lead to a slow start and inadequet action but the story was not all that impressive either.

They should have renamed the movie "The Hulk's Father and His Poorly Written Character." This becomes quite evident in the first ten minutes of the movie wasted on photos of his scientific journals. They could have picked a better away to display the opening credits without putting the audience to sleep.

Awesome "hulk effects", but a confused plot hurt the film.

With all the hype this movie had gotten prior to its release i expected it to be the 2nd coming of the first "Star Wars" I rate this movie close to the movie magic that was created with that Leonardo classic " The Beach" or the stellar movie bout the cheer leader bank robbers.

This movie was HORRID, dont waste your money or your time, stay home and watch " This Old House" reruns and eat really bad food, because u would have saved yourself the agony of this movie.

Not an excellent movie, but at least enjoyable. Some unbelievable but then again, it's "Science Fiction" so anything is possible, right.

The worst movie that ever got adapted from a comic book. I read the hulk comic book as a kid and seeing the feature film version of the comic has let me down. there's plenty of talk and little action as we see Bruce Banner turned into the Hulk. there are two villians and both of them are uncredible.
