The Incredible Hulk
You'll like him when he's angry.
Scientist Bruce Banner scours the planet for an antidote to the unbridled force of rage within him: the Hulk. But when the military masterminds who dream of exploiting his powers force him back to civilization, he finds himself coming face to face with a new, deadly foe.
A humble fella has an allergic reaction to gamma gamma gamma; in the MCU movie about the green man you don't want to make angry.
It's easy to see why this one isn't so highly regarded. You watch Iron Man, fall in lust with the MCU, and a month later, this is at your movieplex. What if movie A is really really awesome, and movie B, not so much? I guess the masses need time for their minds to adjust! At least it's better than Ang's version, right?
Norton or Ruffalo? Naw, give me, Bill Bixby. That's the Banner I know. (I loved seeing him on the tube in this.) I swear I could hear the Hulk tv theme during…
Completely ignoring Ang Lee's 2003 feature about the same character as if it never existed, The Incredible Hulk is the second instalment in Marvel Cinematic Universe that marks yet another attempt to bring on screen the fascinating story of Bruce Banner & his alter ego. And while the first attempt was a disaster, the second venture is no jackpot material either.
The Incredible Hulk tells the story of Dr. Bruce Banner; a nuclear physicist who is on the run from US military after an experiment carried out on him goes horribly wrong & transforms him into a green humanoid monster for a brief period of time whenever he's stressed, angry or excited. The plot covers Banner attempting to cure himself of his…
Am I the only one who wonders what The Incredible Hulk's poops look like? Or is he incapable of pooping because pooping makes him relaxed and happy? Inquiring minds want to know...
WHATS THE DEAL WITH THE INCREDIBLE POOPS?
Part sequel, part reboot, Louis Leterrier's "The Incredbile Hulk" is a straightforward and sufficient action film that attempts to relaunch the titular beast in a manner worthy of a self-contained franchise. While Leterrier and company may not have achieved that goal, the film offers a engaging and thrilling experience.
Picking up more or less where Ang Lee's 2003 "Hulk" left off, Leterrier's film finds Edward Norton's Bruce Banner seeking peace and solitude in seclusion. Old and new enemies soon resurface, and Banner is left on the run and trying to conceal his inner, anger-generated monster. The narrative needs not concern itself with an origin story, but tendrils of the Hulk's beginnings weave their way into this film in the form…
Conquering the MCU: Film #2 - The Incredible Hulk
Wow, this one really sucks. Re-watching it after eight years made me realize how awful this Hulk origins movie is. Let me explain:
- I hate how they shot Rio de Janeiro. Yeah, I know Favela of Rocinha is huge, but it's not a city, so don't shoot it like it's the only thing in Rio. This shouldn't have bothered me so much, but it looks like Leterrier doesn't really care how Brazil is portrayed. ALSO, we don't speak like that! Portuguese is not Spanish, our accents are completely different.
- I love Edward Norton, but he's just miscast here. Actually most everybody is, except Hurt (guess that's why he showed…
Road to the Avengers: Part 1
I remember when I first watched it, while I liked it, I was also disappointed. The main reason for that was because leading up to the movie I was bombarded by trailers that mainly featured scenes from the final 15 minutes of the film. If you have a villain or monster in your film that only appears at the very end... do not show said villain or monster in the damn trailer! In fact you shouldn't have ANY big scenes from the last 30 minutes of your…
Proving yet again it's impossible to make a good Hulk movie.
The second half is just so boring and dumb blah.
honestly, who cares
first time watch and I was impressed.
Not amazing but interesting.
Norton is a good Bruce Banner.
Thunderbolt Ross is a budget Amanda Waller.
Abomination was ass.
Far more enjoyable the second time around. I didn't think THE INCREDIBLE HULK was anything special when I first saw it (and I know many people agreed), so I was skeptical going into it again. But I gotta say, this rewatch has shown me that this movie deserves more credit than it was given.
Cleverly identifying itself as a remake AND a sequel (of sorts), it catches us up with a brief montage of everything we need to know about Bruce Banner. Once the credits end, we are smack in the middle of the story and the film hits the ground running. Louis Leterrier, director of silly (but fun) movies like NOW YOU SEE ME, THE TRANSPORTER and the underrated…
The second feature released under the Marvel Studios banner (and the second feature film version of it's famed Incredible Hulk character) finds French action director Louis Leterrier (the Transporter series) at the helm. The curious choice of director says as much about the direction the Marvel wants to take this franchise as it does about how they'd like to distance themselves from Ang Lee's unappreciated version. In fact Leterrier manages to do in this film's title sequence what Lee took nearly three hours to do, tell the Hulk's origin story. However brief it may have been a couple of minutes in, and the film was all set up and off and running. Off and running is actually an apt choice…
liv tyler deserved better
Better actors, better effects, but the filmmakers just didn't know how to make a Hulk film. The secret is to not make the Hulk a hero, but instead something like Godzilla or a tornado.
I wish they would hurry up and insert the Leader into the regular MCU!!!
Didn't hate it, but pretty lackluster and silly. The Bruce Banner character didn't feel fleshed out or interesting enough. That, and Edward Norton is actually pretty bland and forgettable playing the role.
The lizard creature thing that Tim Roth turned into was also pretty silly. The visual effects / CGI was horrible, reminiscent of PS3 graphics.
The story works out okay, with the relationship between Norton and Tyler being the strongest point. I just wish it could've felt more fleshed out in back story and even the relationship between Banner and his enemies could've been elaborated more besides that corny. poorly made opening.
Also, the tone is different here than the few other Marvel films i've seen. I don't know,…
