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.
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?
I bet Marvel are actually kind of glad that most people don't consider this to be part of the new Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite Robert Downey Jr. having a tiny cameo as Tony Stark. Growing up I was a huge fan of the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno TV series so when the time came for a new big budget Hollywood interpretation I was anxious for it. And believe it or not, I really liked Ang Lee's "Hulk" when it came out. So when I went in to watch this I expected a sequel, but since every actor was replaced and the origin story that was quickly established via flashback didn't match up it was simply confusing. As a reboot to the…
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…
When I first saw this, I fucking hated it. Here's my original review, from my now abandoned blog (I know, a blog, how 2008). On a rewatch, I've mellowed. I've upped my rating by two and half stars. I know. I think I've grown.
Partially, this was down to imagining every scene as if Mark Ruffallo was playing Bruce Banner, which helps a lot. With this in mind, I was having something approaching what the kids call "a blast"... and then Betty Ross turned up, and I remembered why I hated the movie first time round.
I don't normally like criticising particular actors, I'm sure they're all lovely in real life, and actresses…
This is certainly a lot better than Hulk. It's less comic book style but the combination of a more heartfelt story, a nice vein of humour, some far superior animated shorts and a few characters with real depth - put this ahead of the first attempt of the big green angry special effect. It is admittedly the weakest of the Avengers films but still keeps it's feet in the realms of 3 stardom. The fast paced introduction sequence wastes no time getting you fully up to speed and it keeps the audience interested. Although the CGI is better than the first Hulk the film succeeds more when it's Norton on screen and not his CGI alter ego.
It probably wasn't the best idea leaving it so late to watch The Incredible Hulk, as inevitably now I'm tarnished by the character's superb rendition in The Avengers. Taking the Edward Norton incarnation on its own merits... well, I was a little underwhelmed, to tell you the truth. Louie Leterrier's movie is perfectly decent but there's very little going on here we haven't seen done better elsewhere, before or since. Good effects? Sure. Decent cast? Absolutely. Great script, drama and characterisation? Not so much. Not really. It's all very by-the-numbers, and sitting in a very strange place given it's not quite a sequel, yet deliberately avoids telling an origin story for Bruce Banner. As a result, it's a mish-mash of…
"The Incredible Hulk" is no doubt an ideal version of the Hulk saga for those who found Ang Lee's "Hulk" (2003) too talky, or dare I say, too thoughtful. But not for me. It sidesteps the intriguing aspects of Hulkdom and spends way too much time in, dare I say, noisy and mindless action sequences. By the time the Incredible Hulk had completed his hulk-on-hulk showdown with the Incredible Blonsky, I had been using my Timex with the illuminated dial way too often.
Consider the dilemma of creating a story about the Hulk, who is one of the lesser creatures in the Marvel Comics stable. You're dealing with two different characters: Mild-mannered scientist Dr. Bruce Banner, and the rampaging, destructive…
The second batter in the first game of Marvel's Cinematic Universe doesn't have quite as strong a swing as Tony Stark's home run scoring turn, but it's as good as I think we're gonna get to a solo Hulk outing.
I'm not sure why this didn't take quite as well as the others. The big green guy's story is not as grounded as Iron Man, but still not as ridiculous as the other big guy with the hammer. The tone doesn't feel quite as blended as the other MCU players' fun and comic-book like, yet down-to-earth (literally in Thor's case) styles. I think it was just too serious a take on the source material. Norton's reworking of the script made…
While this is nowhere near as introspective or expressively stylized as Ang Lee's aberrative Hulk experiment, Liv Tyler is fabulous in a thankless role, especially considering that she spends much of the film playing against nothing (including Edward "Wet Noodle" Norton), as is the habitually charismatic Tim Roth. And if this ultimately plays like an obligatory and thus superfluous reboot-cum-footnote meant to setup Hulk's appearance in The Avengers, at least Leterrier imbued it with the most kinetic sensibility of any entry in the first phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the "Hulk Smash!" material is vigorously executed. In short, the film is pointless, but I had some unpretentious fun with it.
Three action stops, one of which is kind of impressive cause it takes place in broad daylight without any obstructions, with twenty minutes of bad filler between them. Leterrier's style is to zoom onto every little detail so that it's larger than life, then cut abruptly. Tim Roth has fun as the Russo-Cockney super villain who'd prefer to sit hunched and sweat like a drugged up insomniac than exude arrogance. Norton, on the other hand, runs, pauses for a flummoxed expression, runs some more, punches a guy. Alleged script revisions nowhere to be found.
It's a bit hard to pinpoint where exactly it all goes wrong, but the film never coheres quite the way you would expect it to. Which is a shame because Edward Norton is a very interesting Bruce Banner (he has that whole "tortured scientist" look down to a tee), and I can't help but occasionally wonder how "The Avengers" would have looked like with him (not to take anything away from Mark Ruffalo who is, of course, terrific).
Much better than Ang Lee's Hulk, whatever anyone else says.
(antes de comenzar quiero apuntar que estamos hablando de una película en la que hulk parte una patrulla en dos y usa cada mitad como guante de box para golpear a abominación.)
quizá la mejor del proyecto the avengers: hay lo mismo un interesante desarrollo de personajes --obviamente el principal es banner, que aquí es un hombre torturado-- que logradas escenas de acción. le bajan bastante a los diálogos expositivos, mal de la serie, gracias a una inteligente secuencia de créditos que funciona a manera de "recap" de lo antes sucedido --a mí me parece mejor y más orgánico meter un recap de esa forma que a manera de recuerdo, como en el capi 2--, y el elenco tiene un…
Altought this movie is a huge improvement over ang lee's HULK there is one mayor flaw this movie has and it's in the titel. It's called the INCREDIBLE hulk and nowhere in the movie I see the incredible in the hulk. It's more the amazing hulk rather then Incredible. And hulk being my all time favorite character ever, I want to see incredible and not amazing, that's for spider man.
It's not a bad movie at all, it has good action scenes and a better set up then HUlk, and it has more fan service then HULK. But it still has its flaws, like I said the fact that this hulk is not really incredible in the feats he does. luckily the avengers showed us that hulk can be incredible on the big screen.
