* SpecialEffectsFailure: The Hulk himself is accused of being this because of his skin color. The Hulk Dogs on the other hand never had a chance. The 2008 film addressed the skin color problem, but as consequence made him shiny in some shots.

* VindicatedByHistory: A unique example. Hulk's still got a bad rating in IMDB (usually only around 6), but many hardcore comic book fans and amateur movie critics has started to praising the movie's good quality aside the score (such as the movie's analogy on Hulk's virtually unlimited strength in the last action scene, where [[spoiler: Bruce defeated his father by released a very large ammount of gamma energy, turned him into a large bubble]]). The movement has been there since at least [[http://forums.superherohype.com/archive/index.php/t-239245.html 2006]]

***The aforementioned fighter jet attack. It comes from nowhere, it is never mentioned again and almost doesn't contribute nothing to the movie. Either it is BigLippedAlligatorMoment or Padding.

* BrokenBase: The film did alright with critics but was ultimately a box office bust. It broke even and had a [[{{Film/TheIncredibleHulk}} "sequel"/reboot]] made five years later. It was (in)famous for the InternetBackdraft that accompanied its release, especially when a full cut was leaked for download to much nerd rage. Surprisingly, despite the reboot taking the opposite track both films did almost exactly the same [[http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hulk/ with]] [[http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_incredible_hulk/ critics]] and [[http://boxofficemojo.com/showdowns/chart/?id=hulkvs.htm financially]] (though the reboot has a far higher Imdb rating), which may be a measure of how popular the character is in the mainstream. Nonetheless, the 2003 film is slowly becoming something of a CultClassic in certain circles; whatever else you can say about it, it's certainly not a film people feel neutral about.

** While making the movie, Eric Bana would often note that the whole movie felt too dramatic and a bit too gloomy. [[{{Wangst}} Now take a guess at what the main complaint that most people had with the movie was!]]

** The "puny human" scene where the Hulk bursts out of Bruce's mirror made for a great teaser trailer, and makes sense as broad symbolism of the conflict between Bruce's fears and psychoses (the Hulk). It was included in the movie... in the middle of a fall off a fighter plane. Bruce was dreaming it, but it makes no sense in the context of the fighter jet attack.
