Hulk: Your thoughts?

Jun. 13, 2008by: Mike Sampson

You've read our reviews of THE INCREDIBLE HULK here and here. I'm probably sitting in the early show screening as you read this (I just have to see movies like this in a theater on opening day). So now comes your turn to share your thoughts on THE INCREDIBLE HULK. No one really gave this movie a shot but by all accounts, the filmmakers seemed to have succeeded. What did they do right that 2002's THE HULK did so wrong? Are you already excited about a INCREDIBLE HULK 2? What the hell would they call INCREDIBLE HULK 2? Where you one of the lone dissenters and you just don't see what all the fuss is about? Are you still wondering what the f*ck happened to that Captain America cameo everyone was yammering about? Here's your chance. The Strike Backs are wide open for you to post your own thoughts on THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Let it all hang out and engage in some friendly geek chat with your fellow schmoes. And if you're so inclined and have enough money to drop on two movies this weekend, you can share your thoughts on THE HAPPENING over here. I'm guessing that will be an entirely different discussion...

Great stuff...

...over all.

******** SPOILERS **** SPOILERS ********
The only disappointing moment for me was when we finally heard "HULK SMASH!", and he hit the ground to make Abomination trip. Could have been used to better effect elsewhere. Loved the action scenes, especially Hulk using stuff as weapons and defense.

As for the sequel, well I'm stumped on where they can go from here that will be good. Good luck to them though as I'm all for another Hulk movie.

Lastly, and a little nitpicky,

Lastly, and a little nitpicky, too bad they didn't give Abomination ears like in the comics. Maybe not as big, but if you can suspend disbelief enough to see two grown men turn into green goliaths, then Abomination having big ears as part of the side effects is not much of a stretch. It would have balanced his look a little better.

Keep up the great work Marvel Studios!!!

P.S. To anyone complaining the trailers showed too much of the movie: YOU HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT YOURSELVES. Look away next time.

Overall, I liked this movie, but had some issues with it.

As an animator, I loved the CGI (especially the ones that most people don't catch), but I can understand the criticism that some people have with it. The Hulk hhad a "realistic" feel to him, without going cartoony like the first one, but I wish they would have kept his long leaps in it rather than short hops.

As far as the acting, I felt that Norton did an admirable job, but Tyler and Hurt should have been replaced with their

As far as the acting, I felt that Norton did an admirable job, but Tyler and Hurt should have been replaced with their counterparts from Ang Lee's version. Both actors seemed to have mailed it in IMO, plus Sam Elliot is a friggin badass no matter what he's in.

The story was solid, but I felt that they misconstrued what caused the change. It seemed like whenever his heart rate got too high, rather than anger or rage triggering the change. The almost sex scene and simply running away causing his heart rate to skyrocket should have no effect on his becoming the Hulk.

And for all of you piling on to JH's Corpse and DaForce, you have to remember that this is a public forum for discussion and they are entitled to their opinions. Calling them morons and whatnot for not agreeing with you only makes you look bad, not them.

That said, I'd give the movie an 8 out of 10.

Before going to see this movie I re-watched Ang Lee's Hulk, and I liked it. I respect how he tried to do something different in a comic book movie, and it made it interesting to watch. That being said, I can understand why people don't like it since it differs in mood from normal comic books. I never really got into the Hulk comics or t.v. show, so I didn't mind.

That being said, this new Hulk was a great action film. The story was good, I liked the acting(although I think Sam Elliot looks more like Gen. Ross), and it definitely delivered on the action. I had the same problem with this movie as I did with Iron Man and Indy, they give away too much in the previews and t.v. spots. I hope they release an extended edition DVD with the cut scenes reinstated into the film.

film was too standart, i cant beleive how ppl loved it, Ang Lee's Hulk was too serious and had a fantastic cinematography, shots were comic style and acting was fantastic, but hell new Hulk is complete bollocks tbh.

Hulk= Love!

wow Daforce and JH's corpse. while I value your opinion, they differ from mine greatly. If you have issues with seeing a girl work in a factory, I don't know what to say. It obviously wasn't a love interest, it was needed to set up the first showing of the hulk. The Brazilian bad guys needed to transform Banner into the hulk, plain and simple. Don't look for things that aren't there. Secondly, Liv Tyler (while nowhere as hot as Jennifer Connolly) character was spot on. Bruce and Betty Share a

Don't look for things that aren't there. Secondly, Liv Tyler (while nowhere as hot as Jennifer Connolly) character was spot on. Bruce and Betty Share a love for one another that goes beyond a physical boundary. Even when he's the hulk, you can see that she cares for him deeply. And the thing with Stan Lee, he obviously died from radiation poisoning. If you didn't get the fact that the hulk was radioactive, you didn't look at the movie carefully. Anyway, great flick in my opinion. peace!

daforce a bit harsh in his criticism i feel but still made valiantly. i didn't like the film either for one of the reasons he said but not all of them. i liked some of the acting and the cgi passed my requirements but he's right in saying that it was basically hollow. There was no emotion and he was right again about that blood thing... it did bother me. i mean did stan lee turn into a hulk thingy or what? i didn't get that bit. that wold have been funny just a little bit where there's a guy in

it felt like they were insultign our intelligence too when they put in that pointless hot girl at the start. what was that for? to curb our testosterone until the next pointless action sequence?

anyways if all you can do is call daforce a moron then leave this forum now because unlike him you're obviously not able to express an opinion with facts and argument like he is. if you want to call him a moron then come up with counterpoints to his reasoned argument. just cause he has a different pov doesn't make him an idiot and i for one dont' think he is because the movie jsut flet like i'd watsed my time.

it felt really forced and was nowhere near as fluid as iron man where everything flowed accordingly and wasn't just an event leading to the next poorly choreographed fight scene.

Also bring back Jennifer connolly. liv sucks and she's nowhere near as hot!

I had flasbacks of ghostrider half way through this and the much hyped abomination battle was bland.

I wouldn't pay to see it twice and I think it was like RDJ's felt tip marker moustache. Half assed and rushed.

I enjoyed the movie. I'm not jizzing in the front of my skivvies the way a lot of other people are, and do agree that Iron Man was the superior film.

The acting was good enough (Norton was great, but the supporting cast wasn't spectacular. Roth really didn't do it for me. Neither did Tyler or Hurt.) The special effects were really poor at parts and decent at others. The story was good, I especially liked the fact that Bruce Banner was in South America learning breathing techniques to curb

The story was good, I especially liked the fact that Bruce Banner was in South America learning breathing techniques to curb his anger. Overall, it was entertaining and decent. The cameo by Robert Downey Jr. takes it from a 6/10 to a 7 for me, simply because I love the crap out of RDJr.

And leave DaForce alone. If his critique of the film had been simply "it sucked" or littered with misspellings and grammatical errors, I would have joined in with the bashing, but he made his points intelligently. I actually found myself agreeing with some of them. So leave the guy alone, his post is the most intelligent thing that anyone here has said yet. He just happened to dislike the film. Everyone else just sounds like they're orally polishing Louis Leterrier's balls.

Loved it!

I absolutely loved this movie! It was far better and entertaining than Ang Lee's Hulk. Listen, I respect Lee as a director but when I saw Hulk back in 2003, the fanboy inside of me was raging and I just wanted to pimp-slap him! I loved this version more because it stayed true to the franchise, there was emotion and humanity in all the characters especially the Green Goliath. Plus, the nuggets of other franchises seeping into this movie was entertaining. Seeing Nick Fury's name and the Stark

Seeing Nick Fury's name and the Stark Industries logo in the opening credits as well as a reference to Captain America all got my approval rating for this film higher.

BOTTOME LINE: THIS FILM ROCKED!!!

I went in with very low expectations and just hoped that it would be 1% better then ang lees version. After watching it i was surprised that it was way better then 1%. I thought it was great. For a hard character like the hulk to be put on the big screen i was very happy about this movie. i enjoyed every minute of it. Loved the first fight when Hulk was shrouded in darkness making it feel new during the second big battle when u get your first glimpse of the Big Green. My only problem with it

HULK SMASSSSSH

I loved it. Defo Fugitive meets Super Hero. Good story and great effects. Love to see the extended version but am sure it was kept out so that people will not be comparing it Ang Lee's version.
I love the action in this film. I wish the producers redo Hulk to look like this film. Hurah!

Anything But Angry This Time

The Hulk has been one of my favourite charaters for a long time. This new movie depicts the Hulk and Bruce in a more accurate light. I loved the look, colour, texture, face, hair of the Hulk. Edward Norton did a stellar job. The cinematography in Brazil & Toronto were awesome and far better than a certain 2003 film by Ang Lee. The Hulk has made a triumphant return to form, as Batman did in 2005.

Do you really need that much space?

Everyone has an opinion but...Way to be real jerk by taking up a HUGE chunk of real estate in the comments section, pushing down other people's own opinions for your own rant, which you purposely divided up with MUCH more than the necessary amount of spacing.

Horrible. Honestly, I'd have to say that Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull Fuck was slightly more entertaining than this exercise in tedium.

Really, REALLY bad CGI with no weight or physics given to the characters. The two big action scenes could have been scenes from a videogame, that's how boring they were. Not to mention that all the 'action' scenes (all three of them) are all shot in darkness (even the one that takes place out in the open, in the middle of a sunny day) to hide the bad

Not to mention that all the 'action' scenes (all three of them) are all shot in darkness (even the one that takes place out in the open, in the middle of a sunny day) to hide the bad FX done by Rhythm & Hues.

Ed Norton as Banner was Ed Norton grimacing and trying to look sad a lot through the whole movie. Probably his worst performance yet. Liv Tyler is supposed to be a scientist working at a university, but comes off as a stoned college student...complete with the same emotional range one would find in a stoned college student. Tim Roth.....wow...just wow. Look, I'm sneering, see? That sneer tells you I'm supposed to be the bad guy. No reason given as to why he wants to turn into the Abomination and rampage through the city. No character development AT ALL.

William Hurt. At least he showed more emotional range than the rest of the cast put together. Still, no character development, no sense of what's pushing him, what's driving him. Very much like the rest of the movie, hollow. Empty.

The one small, shining star in this crapfest? Tim Blake Nelson as Samuel Sterns. And he's in the movie for about 10 minutes. Even the much balleyhooed cameo in this flick sucked and was present just to push another Marvel franchise.

People give the Ang Lee version crap for being too psychological, but this turd that just came out falls on the complete other end of the scale and just winds up being dumb and forgettable. Save your money for The Dark Knight which comes out next month. Or, if you really need to see a comic book related flick, go see Iron Man again to see how something can be done right.

Oh, and in case you're still on the fence about wasting your money on this thing, I've got one more reason why it sucks.

This movie was based off of the 70's tv series. It didn't evolve much past the plot of the 70's tv series, and is about as exciting as the 70's tv series. Especially since it looks like anyone even being exposed to Banner's blood can become a hulk, and frankly that premise is just plain stupid.

Laudable effort...

... instead of the laughable, self serious predecessor.

I too am interested in the so called seventy minutes extra Letterier spoke of earlier in the week.

Very much like The Fugitive feel he was going for.

Kudos, read for a sequel.

Surprisingly good

I went in to the Hulk with somewhat low expectations.. but I was very surprised with how good it was. It wasn't really deep or complex, but relied on the action to capture our interests. It did. The cgi wasn't great, but it was good eneough. Edward Norton is the man, and played a good Bruce Banner. The Hulk was entertaining from start to finish, and ended with a kickass fight scene. Oh.. and the little cameo at the end didnt bother me either :)

The Incredible Hulk may not quite be incredible, but it is certainly very good. The first 45 minutes of the film are a tad bit slow, and the climax seems slightly rushed, but this movie is everything that a Hulk movie should be. It is an adrenaline-soaked roller coaster ride with heart. In between the action sequences we see characters that are nicely fleshed out and developed, which is rare for these types of films. The Incredible Hulk is the best movie of the summer season so far. Don't miss

Hulk Smashed...but lost some of his abilities??

I went and saw the movie today, and I loved it. I only had 3 flaws with the movie..1. The Hulk is supposed to be able to VERY long distances...yet he had to make several jumps, back and forth from buildings, just to get to the rooftops. 2. Hulk has a really fast healing factor, yet in this film, he is always cut up after all his battles, and it never shows his wounds healing. 3. Did anybody else notice that when, as the Hulk, he wipes the tear off Betty's face, the tear is insanely huge on

Other than that, I completely loved this movie, and will definitely see it again.

Hulk was good but not as good as Iron Man. Like some have said, Tony Stark is just a more interesting character. Definitely Roth was a great addition to this movie and the super soldier parts were among the best like his first confrontation with the Hulk. A few less close-ups of Hulk's face would have been better just because it looked a little less realistic and I could have done without the big Hulk screams to the sky. They just seemed a little too strong.

This was so awesome. Ed Norton was great as Bruce and I loved Liv Tyler, she brought a much needed warmth to the movie.

One of the best final battle scenes ever. Better action than Iron Man..but still liked Iron Man a little more.

HULK SMASH DOUBTS!

I came in hoping it could at least top the terror that was Ang Lee's 2004 Hulk. I can safely say it did and then some. I think it's right up there with Iron Man in competing for Best Sumer Movie (To which I think Dark knight will com in to take later) The pacing, settings, action and dialogue was all fantastic. Norton does a great job as a very tired and frustrated Bruce Banner. Roth, Tyler and Hurt also do their parts pretty well here as well. The opening for the Leader (Aka Samuel Sterns) was

People in my theatre laughed and wooed quite a bit when Stark showed up on screen.

Everything about this movie was just right for what I was hoping in a Hulk movie and even more so.

8.5/10

Stark

For all you guys that think the Stark cameo in the TV Spot was a spoiler...you have no idea what you're talking about ! Watch the movie. The spoiler would have been if they would have implemented the whole discussion between Ross and Stark. Trust me !

HULK SMASH, MOTHAFU**AZ!!!

I was so skeptical about seeing this, and to my surprise it turned out to be everything a Hulk movie should be. Go see it, NOW!

SICK

I had only seen parts of the original film, and I was turned off. So we can pretty much forget about Ang Lee's failure. Don't worry, he made up for it with that cowboy movie. This movie was awesome. Marvel is pumping out these movies and hey are either on par or better than each other. So where can it go to..? The Avengers, hopefully. Oh, I also heard that The Happening sucked balls, so go see The Incredible Hulk.

It was a VERY entertaining movie but does lack the drama and dimension of the first one. This time around instead of just adding or making a strong sequel they go and make an uninteresting version of origin and add a touch of camp. The CG was good on it's own, but never sold as really trying to fit in the movie it's self. The body and extreme close ups were great, but not the face as much. Suprisingly Norton didn't do so much a superior job than bana did back in the day cause bana had a

Suprisingly Norton didn't do so much a superior job than bana did back in the day cause bana had a more demanding role. I didn't feel the torment of Banner in this movie AT ALL but more so his anxiety. The script was like a comic book rather than a movie which many will love but for me I haver some reserves. The last battle was waaay too over hyped and did not fulfill because it didn't really have anything as in filming or stylization to capture me as it should. The acting was mediocre over all or nothing to really connect to besides Norton in his on and off screen time and Roth who has never failed. Everything else was mediocre. I

Seems that they are starting to stray slightly back into camp and make the movie for the average person and not the smart person. Ironman was GREAT but not too smart.

Well Hulk remains a very good installment into the summer forte, but has no true soul like the Ang Lee one did tho it was a brainless action flick and if that's what you're going to watch then you will be obsessed, but if you did take something positive from the original Ang Lee dramatic version then there is a HUGE hole not fulfilled for that camp.

This movie really has no depth whatsoever. Great pop corn flick tho and for the visuals alone...great

Mild spoiler alert

OK, the movie is very good as an action movie, but lacks drama first Hulk movie had. Things I didn't like: 1. William Hurt's general Ross - far away from comic, bring back Sam Elliot, 2. Banner turning to Hulk even if he's not angry - come on, a bit too much 3. Hulk origin at the start of the movie - no comment, to lame 4.Liv Tyler - she plays a doctor???? 5. Too short appearences od Doc Samson and Samuel Sterns 6. Avengers reference - in Iron Man it was ok, but now it's starting to annoy

Tim Roth - badass, 3. Super soldier/ Cap America reference - nice touch 4. Ed Norton - gave Banner a new tragic dimension 5. Score of the movie 6. Hulk using car as boxing gloves So far, best action movie of the year. Definitely a must see.

I liked it

Yes I liked it quite a bit. And nearly every review I've read have been positive as well, and they also say how much better it is than the Ang Lee version. I honestly have never understood the Lee version hate.

Villain comparison - Nolte vs Roth. I gotta go with Nolte cause he was just so much fun to watch.

Norton and Bana played it almost exactly the same.

In the action department, I think Lee's big battle near the end with the army, was better than all of the action sequences in

Finally, when compared to Iron Man, what makes Iron Man so much better is that when Iron Man isn't in action, the movie is still interesting.

Bruce Banner is boring as hell. Tony Stark is a fun guy to be around, and he gets even better when he puts on the suit. Hulk's a hard character cause his alter ego is so damn uninteresting, and his girlfriend has no personality at all. But new Hulk was a lot better in the action department than Iron Man, due to a better action director.

not bad at all

Well, this hulk is a good movie, not great, but definitely entertaining.

finally, i dont mind the marvel movies being inter-related, but it might be appealing to a restricted fan base, as lots of people will know the character but not get the connections with, say, tony stark

overall definitely not dissapointing.

Marvel is really onto something

Last night as I sat down for my provate screening of this film I was thinking about the Ang Lee version and I realized this cant be any worse. As the movie opened to the montage I realized hey, Marvel deciding to do things in house is turning out to be a good idea. Ironman is still my favorite movie of the year thus far, but I tell you what, this film comes in at a close second. My only problem was the CGI on the hulk, at some points he looked like he was a guy in a rubber suit. Though at

My only problem was the CGI on the hulk, at some points he looked like he was a guy in a rubber suit. Though at other points he looked amazing with the cgi. It was just too inconsitent for me. Yet, in the end it panned out because the final fight scene was more epic than I could of ever imagined it would of been, but that wasnt the end of the movie and it only got better from there...
The Tony Stark cameo literally sent chills through my body and has me all hot and bothered for The Avengers. All and all I have to give this a 8.5/10. SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!

Alright... Good Even... Not Incredible

The Incredible Hulk is okay. Waaay better than the last one, but also far short of Iron Man.

Slight Spoiler:
Tony Stark cameo was my favorite part. Guess that shows I would have rather seen Iron Man II than this movie...

Have I seen this movie somewhere?

Seriously though, as I was watching the film during a midnight screening I couldn't help but where I've seen this movie before. Oh that's right! THE EFFIN' PREVIEWS!!! When the first trailer hit us online last year I was totally psyched but equally disappointed that they were practically giving us the movie. If they had cut several key scenes from earlier footage and ESPECIALLY the Stark Spoiler from a TV Spot ( A TV SPOT FOR GOD SAKES) I would've been bouncing all over the walls at the end.

But alas, I just didn't get that overwhelming experience that I waited for. Regardless, this film rocked. I'm surprised that the mediums the they borrowed from (TV Show, comic, and even the game "Ultimate Destruction") had blended so well with each other. The CGI, the fight scenes, the score, everything was awesome. I really liked A-Bomb's new look. He was terrifying and evil to the very core and seeing the two titans pummel each other into a pulp had even myself raging about. Amazing experience! It was actually a very emotional experience, to me especially since I was a fan since point blank, and to see and HEAR the hulk was something I've been waited for to be done right for a long time. 8/10. Go Hulk!

Mr. Blue

While The Leader is a nice teaser there, I was really hoping Mr. Blue would turn out to be Hank Pym, especially after you get a sense of that Dr.'s personality in the lab scene. He just screams "inpet, genius Ant Man" to me... especially fitting to an Edgar Wright take on the upcoming film.

Hulk thoughts

I def thought this Hulk was 100000 times better then the last, even the smallest stuff like making his pants rip off so he had to hold them on....i mean i know its a comic book movie and you need to stretch your imagination but come on his shoes explode off, his shirt, but his pants stay normal, give me a break.....this hulk touched on that and it was important, also did anyone notice how the "public" in this movie shit bricks when they saw the hulk and abomination....yet in ang lees version,

HULK IS back!!

This film was outstanding! it was awsome! I just felt like they gave the whole movie away in the clips and tv spots, all of the major scenes were clips that they had showed so I already knew what to expect, but still the film was amazing! I like how they left it open to a sequel and a new Villan (The Leader) or (Mr. Blue) and the Tony Stark cameo was pretty cool as well as the whole super soldier plot, I can't wait to see more of Hulk and yes it has officially whiped out Ang Lee's version.

Great

The crowd I saw HULK with last night thoroughly enjoyed it, especially all the nods to Captain America.

Going into this film I did not know what to really expect besides immense amounts of CGI and some gnarly fight sequences. I left thoroughly impressed with Norton's take on Bruce Banner and I hope they continue this franchise in some form down the road.

When HULK finally emerges out of the crosswalk at Culver University (SP?) and lands on the ground roaring, that was enough to seal the deal on the Incredible Hulk for me.

I wouldn't think it was any action sequences, since most of the budget went towards that...And if most of it was character, then it could have made the whole movie more uneven, but who knows?

There was a Captain America Cameo. You just had to be looking real hard. Emil and Ross are having a conversation and they mention the super soldier serum. Emil when he fights the hulk in the field is moving a super human speed. You see him running at what looks like 60mph. Then he fights the hulk, and well he just reminded me of cap. :)

The Incredible Hulk was amazing. Simple a phenomenal effort and it's everything the Hulk should have been from the start. There's nothing bad I have for it, it was just an amazing movie, and I'm definately going to watch it again soon.

Overall, it was good, though it felt uneven. There's a few scenes from the trailers that were absent from the cut, like Banner's conversation with the psychiatrist and the long shot of someone walking in the snow. You can tell there's a longer cut, so hopefully for the DVD.
I can't say it's stronger than Ang Lee's version (which I didn't have a problem except it was too light on action and took itself too seriously), but they both kind of compliment each other in a weird way, one focusing on

I do think they could have worked on the the love dialogue between Norton and Taylor a little better. I was so tempted to scream out Hulk Smash when he was about to fuck.

Other then that the movie was awesome.
The final fight scene was the best comic book fight scene next to Spiderman/Ock train scene.

The Leader introduction was great.
And nothing is after the credits so just giving everyone the heads up.
