I Hulk You Not

[@598]

meVicki and I went to see The Hulk yesterday. What a boring movie.
Whomever came up with the idea to turn what could have been a fun movie into a wannabe drama should be fired. The characters are really not that interesting to start with.

It took an hour or so for the Green Giant to come out. Everybody knows the story, there was no need to dwell on it for so long.

The CGI work was impressive at times but too often cartoonish. It really didn't help that some of the fight scenes where ridiculously stupid.

Green thumb down.
