A- from viewers.

B- from critics.

Even if it doesn't do well at the box office, this makes me feel alot better.. I was hoping for a quality outing to offset Ang Lee's horrible mess.

Awesome, I was going to check it out after two weeks when it becomes eligible for the Kerasotes $5 club(anyone else use/heard of this?), but this makes me feel much better about it. I might even pay full price now, but I doubt it. :wink:

Having seen the movie already, I'd say it's definitely worth your time and money. It's entertaining as hell. Even the non-Hulk scenes are enjoyable.

This movie does indeed kick Ang Lee's ass.

I liked the movie a lot. Much better than the Ang Lee effort.

it was OK, but the Hulk dogs were lame (sorry, other than the Inhumans mini, anything ever written/created by Jenkins is overrated crapola of the highest level), and it COMPLETELY went off the rails when hobo-Jack Cates became the Absorbing Dad.

One of my best friends just stopped by work jright after seeing the film, just to tell me how unbelievably awesome he thought it was...... in his words, it was every bit as good as Iron Man.......

Strong words indeed....

The hulk dogs were no lamer than 90 percent of the other thing hulk has fought over the years, including his recurring villians.....

It suffered from the same problem Superman Returns had.

They tried to make a movie that strayed too far from it's roots.

You expect action from a movie called Superman, not a movie about a peeping tom who has all of two points in the movie when he's interesting, and they're at the beginning and the end to make you suffer through the horrible middle..

In that same fashion, you expect action from The Hulk. You expect smashing. Lots of smashing. And action. Did I say action?

I mean.. these are superhero movies here.. Ang Lee tried to be too psychological about it.

I did too. I actually thought it was more faithful to most of PAD's run, which made the Hulk all about his psychological issues, than most people would like to admit.

I can understand why people don't like it, and the dogs *were* stupid, no argument there, but it wasn't terrible.

I don't know if I'd go as far as saying it was better than Ang Lee's movie, but it certainly wasn't any worse.

That's something, I guess.
