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…
SuperSam's Quick Thoughts: (MCU Rewatch #2)
I like the movie, but my big issue with it is that nothing happens. The Hulk starts the movie on the run. The government pursues him. He gets away. The Hulk is on the run. The government pursues him. He gets away. The Hulk is on the run. The government pursues him. He gets away. End movie.
It's a good movie, but the Hulk's only character development is at the very last shot of the movie where it's revealed he can change on his own, which we never see Edward Norton do. We've only see Mark Ruffalo do it once so far.
I like The Incredible Hulk well enough, but it's pretty standard with…
Although I could mention a lot of things that irritated me with this outing of the Hulks origin story, the positives outweigh most of the negatives.
The Incredible Hulk is, in fact, a movie about Bruce Banner. The Hulk gets a supporting role. The movie isn't suffering too much because of this, as the story seems well thought through, and actually works rather well. The action sequences seems a little long to me, but I suppose that's a matter of taste rather than a flaw.
Though...fitting in with the other Marvel Universe outings it does not. It's much too dark and brooding for that. No funny one-liners, no real tie-in with the other movies. It's an ok enough movie on its own, but as a part of the Marvel Universe...not so much.
If you like superhero movies...I'm sure you'll like it.
I forgot Liv Tyler was in this movie.
I was expecting the action to be at the level of Ultimate Destruction, that awesome PS2 game. It is an unfair expectation, but still, it's fucking Hulk. Needless to say, I was thoroughly disappointed.
And what's left is a mediocre narrative.

My Ratings: 6 - #Okay
Tagline: You'll like him when he's angry.
The runt of the litter. The bastard love child of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The best thing The Incredible Hulk does is dispense with the origin story straight away. The chase sequence through Brazilian favelas is pretty neat, but dear god, the design of the Hulk is horrendous.
This movie in my opinion is the worst of the MCU.
Though this is a fine film altogether thanks to Edward nortons performance and the action. My main problem with it is that ironically there's not much Hulk. And that kinda stinks
I feel like there was a lot of people working on this movie, and they all wanted it to be something different. There's lots of cool things in here, but overall it's pretty weak honestly.
mutation, assimilation, modification, and the impact of technology, science, and industry on the human body and its form (with some…
