i just saw the movie, and i'm surprised the direction got such bad reviews. I totally loved Ang Lee's use of split screens and all those wierd cut-scenes..
Hope it's repeated in the sequel, if they have one..

Yea, I loved the cinematography of the Hulk. The use of split-screen panels and colors really created that whole comic-book look and feel.
I loved the storyline, and really don't understand why it got such horrible reviews either. I think this was one of the best comic book-films. I think the problem was that the average fan knows next to nothing about the Hulk comic and just wanted to see the Hulk rampage. On the other side, the comic book fanboys were pissed off because they deviated from the comic book source material.
The storyline was really well-constructed and the characters were well-developed, as oppossed to Daredevilor LXG.......

To the person who said that the average person knows next to nothing about Hulk, you were right. I mean, most people (I was one of them for years) belive that Hulk is just a big green guy who smashes stuff. But he is a living engine of destruction with the heart of a child.
Anyway, the direction was great. I was surprised that they picked Ang Lee, but hey, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was awesome, and so was the Hulk.

I have a feeling this film will "hold up" better through the years than some of its contemporaries.
My issue with this movie was always the Hulk itself, especially in daylight.

The movie definetely had a very unique style to it, unlike say Daredevil, which seemed dark and gritty just for the sake of being dark and gritty...
