The Hulk is now in theatres. Has any one seen it.
Is it worth the money, to see. Or should I wait for video/DVD to see?

I have read a lot of Marvel comic books when I was younger. I saw Spider-Man, X-Men, boot leg X-Men 2 Blade, and Dare Devil. I like all except for Dare Devil. Did not care to see Blade II. I Think they should of cast some one else to play the Dare Devil role. I really enjoyed the Iron Man comic books, so I am hoping they make a movie of it. The Punisher I just don't know. The Hulk television series was okay, so I hope the movie is much better.

I saw it, and it wasn't so great. The special effects were cool, but it was way to long for the amount of story involved.

I would probably recommend it for the directing, but the acting wasn't so great.

The cool part about it, was that they went for a "comic" like effect. So the screen gets segmented like as if you were reading a comic, which was pretty cool.

A lot of cool transition effects as well.

I would give it a 6 of 10, maybe 7 if I just looked at the effects.

ya, it was good. there was too much story. i know the whole hulk story is based on internal conflict, but they could have cut at least 30 mins out and you would still understand the story.

How close did they stay to the original story line? In the original story Banner was exposed to a Gamma bomb exploxing. Some of the move change the story line, like in Spider-Man (genericly altered spider vs. radio active spider).
