Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

There are times when this movie feels like little more than a seemingly endless series of violent and/or demonic images. There's a story in this mess somewhere, but there are so many side stories that it's hard for anyone but the most die-hard fans to keep everything straight. Furthermore, the hilariously awful dialogue, especially from Dr. Strange, is so parodic, it sounds like something Will Farrell would exclaim in Elf ("Great Odin's beard!").

Even the overarching message in Marvel's Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell -- that it's ok to be different -- has been done so many times in the X-Men franchise alone, and done so much better. The only remotely interesting side story concerns the Hulk's battle with his alter-ego Bruce Banner. But one side story out of four or five, in addition to the main story, hardly sustains interest over the course of a 75-minute feature. The end result is a jumbled mess of tangled storylines and demonic imagery.
