Figured this would be a good thread to post my thoughts on the Hulk after watching it tonight.
Overall, I think it was a good movie. Not great, but not terrible.
1- Too damn long! You don't even SEE the Hulk the whole first hour! How crazy is that?
2- Visual Style. Granted, this is more of a taste thing. Some people might like it, and in some instances, it was kinda cool, but many times, the screen just felt too busy, and others, it's just darn awful (uh... outline? Need I say more? :p).
3- Non-Hulk FX. The Hulk himself looked great, most of the time, but the OTHER CGI in the film really was lacking, I think... Especially the "blood glob" toward the end, for those who have seen it.
4- Uh... how much does the Hulk weigh? If he was to come sailing down from one of his mile long leaps and hit the ground, I would think he'd make SOME kind of dent in the ground?
5- Cheesy ending.
1- Jennifer Connelly.. 'nuff said!
2- The Hulk. The only instance that the Hulk really didn't look that good was when he physically interacted with live actors.... specifically Nick Nolte and Jen. Then you could really see just how "un-real" the Hulk was in comparison.
3- Action. So, after the inital hour, we finally see Bruce turn into the Hulk and the action sequances are really well done and really edge of your seat sometimes.
4- Great Finale! The ending climax is the cheesy part that I'm referring to above.... when the "bad guy" is disposed of. After that,though, the "epilogue" is quite good, and a good, upbeat to end the show on.
5- Jennifer Connelly - Woo Hoo! One hot momma!
So, good flick. Worth $16? Maybe not. Well... maybe for Jennifer.
