The special effects were awesome, with the Hulk himself being well filmed. The only way they could really pull off a 15' tall green muscle bound 'Hulk'. Particularly good was the special effects of the bullets hitting the Hulk and the stippling on his skin from them, this looked really good and gives the Hulk character that much more solidity.
Even with the slow opening I think this film was very good entertainment, and deserves 4 out of 5 for script and acting as well as the special effects, and I hope they write a sequel soon.
