The Incredible Hulk Review

The Incredible Hulk

Directed by: Louis Leterrier

Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt

Like a lot of fan boy out there I was not a huge fan of Ang Lee‘s Hulk, it was a little boring and the way that they had it like a comic book was rather annoying. What sets this apart from that Hulk is that it is a straight up movie about the Hulk, he is shown in action and a touch of humanity underneath his green skin. I also have to give credit to Edward Norton for playing this role perfectly, something I can’t say about Eric Bana. The pacing and action flowed a lot better and made sense and he had a villain that was actually a capable foe unlike the Absorbing Man from the first one. Since Iron Man, Marvel has really upped their game when it comes to movie and this one is one of the more satisfying of the bunch with a story and action that suitably does the Hulk justice and ties everything nicely together with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A cure is in reach for the world’s most primal force of fury: THE INCREDIBLE HULK. We find scientist Bruce Banner, living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won’t leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross. Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination — a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk’s own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. One scientist must make an agonizing final choice — accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: THE INCREDIBLE HULK

I was not disappointed when I first watched this movie and I am still satisfied with the results. I would have to recommend this to anyone interested in the character and how he fits into the Marvel Universe.
