More Info:
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    "Iron Man" has more wit and style, but Hulk is a neat thrill ride with an intelligent script by Zak Penn and smart, well-paced direction by the French director of "The Transporter" series, Louis Leterrier.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Five years after Ang Lee attempted a stylistically and narratively daring reimagining of what a comic-book movie could be (an example that tanked disastrously at the box office), the big green gamma-guy returns to the screen in a purer, more unadulterated, vastly more entertaining form.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Until the last 20 minutes, which stumble around in an attempt to set up a sequel, The Incredible Hulk keeps slamming everything forward, satisfyingly.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Embraces its identity as a sci-fi-summer-action-blockbuster extravaganza. Along the way, it actually comes close to finding the balance that Lee was looking for.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    The dialogue is minimal but sharp, the pace swift and the action sequences suitably loud and brutal.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The Incredible Hulk is a more traditional superhero movie than its predecessor and should please those who want their not-so-jolly green giant served with helpings of action. This film provides less talk and more smashing.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    By handing the directorial reigns to Louis Leterrier, the Parisian filmmaker responsible for the breathless "Transporter" films, Universal reveals its desire to emphasize spectacle over story.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Edward Norton's a more evocative actor than Eric Bana, and he supplies all the emotions required by Leterrier and writer Zak Penn.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Loses something when it depends on its computer-generated creatures to carry the story. The effects are a mile above the previous Hulk film, but there's still a certain awkwardness to some movements, and an odd lack of definition to the massive muscles that makes them seem like gelatinous sacks of meat.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Luckily, the new The Incredible Hulk is more like those 80-page special issues that comic-book publishers sold in the early 1960s for a quarter, packed with old, favorite story lines.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The Incredible Hulk is weightless--as disposable as an Xbox game. It's also fairly entertaining: swift, playful without pitching into camp, and acted with high spirits.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A straightforward actioner that delivers the goods with no unnecessary frills or digressions.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The result is a classic comic-book hero quest that, while not entirely novel, hews to its own rules and conventions with dignity and artfulness.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    There's enough adrenaline pulsating throughout this bang-up Marvel Comics adaptation to erase 2003's Hulk from memory (Ang who?).

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The Incredible Hulk is just a luridly reductive and violent B movie -- one that clears a bar that hadn't been set very high.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Arnold

    It may be that the Hulk role was not made for sensitive method actors like Norton or Bana. When '70s TV-"Hulk" Lou Ferrigno made his obligatory cameo, a palpable wave of affection swept through the Seattle preview audience.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    The Hulk himself looks more steroidal than superheroic, as if the expressive beast from the first film had been replaced by a WWE star.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The final confrontation between the Hulk and Blonsky, now the roaring Abomination, is like the clash of Downey and Bridges in "Iron Man," only not as exciting.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    By the time the Incredible Hulk had completed his hulk-on-hulk showdown with the Incredible Blonsky, I had been using my Timex with the illuminated dial way too often.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Closer in spirit and tone to the comic books that spawned it.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Like its monstrous hero, The Incredible Hulk gets the job done with minimal artistry and a lot of noise.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Don't run off before the credits start to roll, though: The Incredible Hulk ends with a jokey cameo by a certain movie star with his own newfound superhero franchise.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This Hulk is more viscerally angry and packs a bigger wallop than Ang Lee's talkier, more introspective version. But it's hardly the best superhero movie around. "Iron Man" was wittier and more fun.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    There's a certain pleasure to be had in some of the physical blowouts.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Zack Haddad

    In the end, don't go see this if you are looking for an intellectual film. If you're into seeing some fun, mindless action in a faithful Marvel comic adaptation for a couple hours, then go see the Hulk smash some stuff.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Simon Crook

    A franchise rebooted with efficiency, energy and sporadic invention, although Hulk 2.0 hardly smashes it out of the park.

    Empire Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Cheers to lower expectations, then, because The Incredible Hulk is The Pretty Good Hulk. All things considered, of course.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    The result is solid and efficient, if unadventurous, illustrating both the lure and the limitations of comic book extravaganzas.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Denby

    It's nothing we haven't seen done better before (by Paul Greengrass in the recent "Bourne Ultimatum," for instance), but it's good enough as kinetic entertainment.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Do we really need another Hulk movie? I was one of the few critics who actually liked Ang Lee's 2003 "Hulk," but it didn't exactly ring the cash registers or clamor for a continuation.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Playing characters familiar to the fans, we have William Hurt as a blustering general, Tim Blake Nelson as a kooky scientist and Tim Roth as an evil soldier who morphs into a monster. All of them seem to be directing themselves.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The Incredible Hulk suggests only that we've bottomed out on special effects: They're not necessarily getting better -- they're just getting bigger. Technically, Leterrier's Hulk is as realistic-looking as a rampaging green giant could be. But that doesn't make him credible. Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    A middling superhero movie! I wish I could say that was incredible.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    For me, there's a problem with The Hulk, always has been, though it hasn't seemed to bother the tale's legions of fans. When the sensitive, physically unprepossessing Banner/Norton turns into the gargantuan, muscle-bound, growling Hulk, there's a total disconnect.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Why remake a crappy movie five years later if it's only going to be marginally less crappy?

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Schickel

    One has to admit that enormous moviemaking skill goes into the creation of pictures like The Incredible Hulk. The sheer craft directors such as Leterrier lavish on them is awesome to me. I can't imagine how they orchestrate -- or even remember -- all the little pieces of film they require to build their big set pieces. That thought, however, is nearly always followed by this question: Why do they bother?

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Once again, though, the film is defined by the strengths and weaknesses of the source material. While Bruce is working on anger management, you may find yourself working on boredom management, and matching his rate of success.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Roth and Hurt glower semi-engagingly, and while Norton's scrawniness works, he seems intellectually disengaged, despite his helping to craft Zak Penn's script.
