YMMV / The Amazing Bulk

Go To

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The ENTIRE final chase is full of bizarre things, like Bulk running onto a soccer field and Zeus getting in on trying to kill Bulk.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: General Darwin is easily the most memorable character other than the Bulk himself, thanks to being the only actor who looks like he's having any fun with the movie.
  • Fetish Retardant: Lolita Kantlove feeling up the Bulk's crotch in what looks like foreplay.

  • Fight Scene Failure: All the punches between Hank and the robber on the train clearly don't make contact.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: As if the final chase scene wasn't embarrassing enough as is, the cockpit effect that appears behind the fighter pilot is the exact same stock effect that JonTron used in his "Malkovich's Gaming Guilty Pleasures" video, uploaded a year earlier, although in that context, it was intended to look terrible.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "I hate dust!"
    • "Well, it ain't Barney the Purple Dinosaur!"
  • Narm: The infamous chase sequence at the climax. The whole jaw-droppingly and hilariously bizarre thing just has to be seen to be believed.
  • Nightmare Fuel: General Darwin is generally over the top and insane, but there is one moment where he comes off as rather unsettling. He comes with a syringe with a fairly intimidating slasher smile, and the most sinister sounding tone in the movie:
    "What's up... Doc?
    *Evil Laughing*

  • Signature Scene: The final chase simply must be seen to be believed.
  • Serial Numbers Filed Off: In reference to The Incredible Hulk, though in this one, the Bulk is a villain.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The only real appeal of the film.
  • Special Effects Failure: Birdemic looks real compared to this.
    • The stock animations used in the climactic chase scene look better than the rest of the film.
    • The Bulk when attacking the helicopter, is clearly just the actor who played Ray in a purple filter.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: You have a fat, ugly, purple monster man running around in the most awkward looking stroll, in an entirely green screen setting, which includes random things like leprechauns, goblins, pirates, inept detectives, muggers, a diabolical Bond villain, and possibly the most insane military general ever put on screen out to get him. It culminates in a ridiculous climax that is commonly (and sarcastically) referred to as "the best chase scene in cinema history," where the general orders the military and random things to chase and kill the Bulk, while he runs around in the most bizarre CGI settings ever, concluding with an air force pilot dropping a kamikaze communist man riding an atomic bomb on top of the purple marathoner. All set to the "William Tell Overture" and "When Johnny Comes Marching Home."
