I belong to the people who thought Ang Lee's "Hulk" was actually pretty decent. This film doesn't reboot the franchise but begins more or less were the 2003 film ended, explaining the creation of the Hulk merely in the opening credits. The cast is well picked, Norton makes for a great Banner and has a good chemistry with Liv Tyler. Hurt is perfect as General Ross and Roth is a wonderfully creepy hunter. All those aren't the problem of the film. The action is rather well filmed too, the movie never gets boring. The main problem is simply that the computer animated Hulk still does not look convincing, in some aspects even less so than the one from 2003. To give him a similar opponent who doesn't look much better makes for a showdown that feels like looking at a computer game sequence and leaves the audience somewhat unimpressed. Considering the amount of talents being involved in this film, that has to be a major disappointment. At least the last minute cameo that sets up the Avengers film got a smile on my face again. They better make sure The Hulk looks okay until then.

I'm just glad I finished it. There's little wrong with this movie if I were to judge it based on its peers, but I abandoned it for a Yankee game and fell asleep before I finally completed it. It's very basic SFX-laden, violent-lovers' porn. As is the case in all of his movies, William Hurt gives a strong performance. He tries to make his co-stars look good, but the script simply won't co-operate.
