Default Hulk v.s. Incredible Hulk

Ang Lee's Hulk is one of my all-time favorite comic book films. In fact, I liked it much better than the reboot Incredible Hulk, and I think it's a very underrated and misunderstood film.

My question is which Hulk movie did you prefer, and why?

It's so misunderstood, it's not even funny.

Not to mention in terms of pure aesthetics, it has one of the coolest looks to a superhero movie.

Usually everything is urban sprawl and takes place in a major metropolis. I loved the unique and sometimes creepy desert / military setting.

Actually they both are pretty low on the radar as far as comic movies go. But since they have Paul <I Was The Voice Of Spider-Man>Soles in Incredible Hulk I'll give that one the nod.

Neither, as said before. Ang Lee's version had great character developement along with an atmosphere not seen in many comic book adaptations, let alone the majority of Hollywood films. We also can't forget the beautiful cinematography used in that film. Sadly, that was all the film had, which for a comic book adapation-- depending on the material, isn't enough. The idea of having the Hulk be larger than needed, while that was present in some comic book incarnations of the character, was just straight out silly and lame. The action was weak and the inclusion of the terribly animated, redicilously unneeded poodles just threw the movie completely off course. That, with a lackluster, cliche ending destroyed the majority of the great things built with the tone and characters.

The Incredible Hulk switched the table and went all out and did the action right... but gave us much, much more than needed. The characters all followed some form of stereotypical action character. Not even Edward Norton could bring the version of Bruce Banner that was written for that film.

As of today, there hasn't been a perfect or great film incarnation of the Hulk.

Incredible Hulk.

Hulk's use of the comic book panels was overused and unnecessary.

Lee's had better character development but the story was slow and the comic book scenes were god awful.

Nortons was good in the beginning but then sank into blandness.
