so i finally got a chance to check out the latest adaptation of marvel comics' 'the hulk'. i noticed that people have been trashing the film but i feel the need to ask why? i too went in skeptical after the fluffy previews. but in defense of the work, the hulk in the comics WAS indeed obnoxiously big and strong, so in a sense ang lee's version was a very accurate depiction of the character. the film moved like a comic book... with frames splitting the screen on and off (a nice touch). the story was not as strong as translation to film always means some form of compromise... but overall, i thought it was a strong comic-book movie, following the similar strengths and successes of spiderman and the xmen franchises.
