Most helpful review
half of the movie was wasted by screaming HulkBy Picktokyo (54 reviews) from London, England , 19 Jun 2008
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]The last hulk was horrible, this one is slightly better. Well, it is as usual, predictable, very much rely on CGI, and you know what? Hulk's face looks like a cartoon style (more to anime) and it is just off.
CGI is good, but not that good. You can still feel that Liv Tyler is talking to nobody when she talked with Hulk. And I just can't stand Hulk's screaming, it spends a whole damn movie. The storyline of the movie makes you feel asleep, boring action not like Iron man, this is certainly not a very good movie to watch. But since we are all Marvel geek we have to bear the suffering to watch it. This got one star since it shows Tony Stark in the epilogue.

Typical Superhero AdaptationBy HanShotFirst (2 reviews) , 29 Dec 2011An OK watch, but nothing more. Typical Marvel adaptation, if you like Thor, Iron Man etc you will enjoy this, but it can't hold a candle to X-Men or Spiderman. Not much character development, or real reasons given as to why Bruce Banner was prepared to be a human guinea-pig in the first place. On the other hand, it wasn't total rubbish and we weren't disappointed that we rented it.
Brilliant - 10 times better than 2003By CaptainObvious89 (27 reviews) , 12 Dec 2011Brilliant
to be honest i was not expecting much from this especially since the 2003 version was god awful this was surprisingly good.
i love the fact they dont actually go into the back story in that much detail as although, its different from the comic books and previous incarnations, early back stories of well known super heroes always annoy me a bit. with this they get straight into the action pretty.
Could have done with a bit more Ty Burrell in it tho as Dr Samson
Ed Norton gets a thumbs up but the Hulk doesn't look real enough.By CCR (11 reviews) , 08 Dec 2011Ed Norton was great in this film and it had some great Bruce Banner moments, worth watching for Ed and also Robert Downy Jnr as Tony Stark for the last 30 seconds of the film haha. The final scene featuring the hulk is very good to be fair.
The special effects are good but unfortunatly the Hulk doesn't look real enough for me, it should still look like real skin but it doesn't. Maybe cgi can't do that yet.
Hulk, sadBy Bobro (16 reviews) from Blackburn , 17 Nov 2011I dont really like the hulk as a comic book hero but i had to watch this as i am interested in the Avengers movice. Edward Norton is a good actor too... the Hulk as a charicter annoys me, but the film is not bad. if you dont mind the hulk as a charicter and understand comicbook films and the hulks background from the comics then you will not mind this film.
Hulk Smash (well, not exactly)By Robinski (180 reviews) from Glasgow , 13 Nov 2011Much more effective rendition of big green than 'The Hulk', the first act ably captures the feeling of perpetual roaming that is such an important element of the character, emphasising Bruce Banner's humanity through his human contacts. Meaning no disrespect to Eric Bana, but Edward Norton is more believable as the cerebral Banner, and Liv Tyler with her glasses on is sufficiently bookish for Betty Ross. A great cameo by Tim Blake Nelson (with a hint of Simpsons' nutty professor) is just manic enough without being overly comedic. Unfortunately for a Marvel flick I feel that it was let down by the action sequences, but I suppose it could have been worse, I could have been viewing in 3D, good enough in the end, but roll on The Avengers!
