* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: People seem to agree: The game tie-in for this movie, while not perfect, is a fun and entertaining beat-em-up game with some awesome moments.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: People seem to agree: The game TheProblemWithLicensedGames[=/=]NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Whichever category the tie-in for this movie, while not perfect, is a fun and entertaining beat-em-up game with some awesome moments.falls into depends on who you ask. Points towards the former include weak segments as Banner, mostly corridor-based level design, and and a somewhat disjointed storyline. Points toward the latter include the very comic book-esque look, challenging levels, simple-but-fun gameplay, and the CatharsisFactor.
