A superhero movie with barely a whiff of its superhero. Ang Lee was the worst possible choice of director, almost turning this into an arthouse picture, although he probably wasn't helped with such a poor screenplay.     
This is not a film about the Incredible Hulk... Instead, we're treated to a squelchy story about the distance and loss of love between a father and his son, and when the Hulk finally does show up, he resembles a massive green bogey who throws a couple of tanks about.
Some films are often described as "so bad, they're good." This on the other hand, seems to be so good that it's bad.
This film actually made me angry. You won't like me when I'm angry!
