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.
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?
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…
Next up on the Marvel lineup is the one that disappointed many fans the most; The Incredible Hulk, directed by the same guy who gave you the Clash of the Titans remake and the underrated blockbuster Now You See Me. A fresh attempt to make another Hulk movie after the critically panned Ang Lee Hulk film (and one I've not seen, so no real judgment on it), Marvel had to think of another way to place this fan-favorite character into their universe without telling the origin story again. And despite disappointing so many people, and the fact that this truly is the weakest film in the entire MCU, I still found the film mildly entertaining and dare I say... smashing.…
Probably the weakest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe but still a solid film nonetheless. It suffers from an incredibly slow pace, some excruciatingly boring moments and a lack of action and excitement but thanks to a great lead performance from Edward Norton, some fun action sequences with an awesome and cheer worthy climax as well as a fantastic final scene, The Incredible Hulk still has enough positives to warrant a recommendation.
Norton just couldn't bring the softness to the hulk that's needed to understand his personal struggle.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie is really nice to watch, BUT there is so much context missing. How did he get Hulk? Who are the people that obviously know Bruce? Why are people looking for him?...
The second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a rebooted Hulk that pretends the 2003 version directed by Ang Lee never happened. One of the virtues of this attempt is that it doesn't spend much time on Hulk's origin story, mostly dispensing with it in the opening credits montage. I think this is the filmmakers at least acknowledging that, yes, we all saw this story a few years prior and we really don't need much detail. Another virtue is Tim Roth, whose rat-like Emil Blonsky injects some much needed verve into the proceedings, as does Tim Blake Nelson in the smaller role of Samuel Sterns. The rest of the cast is saddled with playing one note each in one-dimensional…
It bothers me more than it should that people keep firing regular bullets at a clearly invincible monster.
This installment of the Hulk franchise has a more interesting story than its predecessor, but the cast is a step backward with one exception (and it kills me to say this) but I think William Hurt was leaps and bounds better than Sam Elliott's General Ross. Elliott's little tantrums always came off as forced, but Hurt brings a more complete character to the table. Edward Norton, however, is no Eric Bana, nor is Liv Tyler a compelling Jennifer Connelly. Both outings had terrific special effects, and the lighting here is a better fit for a real world Hulk adventure. Hulk was maybe a little too colorful for its own good. Overall, they are about even.
where is my she hulk movie
I'm not sure I want to get into "dueling Hulks" (OK, I will say that Ang Lee's version is not as bad as most people claim), nor am I going to compare lead actors (though I think Eric Bana is a more sympathetic Banner than Ed Norton), or leading ladies (Liv may not have Connelly's acting experience but she's appropriately ethereal), or General Rosses (no contest... Hurt makes a better general because Sam Elliot just looks awkward as hell without a cowboy hat).
Let's just say that this version might not merit the "Incredible" in the title, but it's still not a bad superhero film, an adequate placeholder between the good Iron Man film and the not-so-good Iron Man film.…
Holy shit was that cheesy.
Welcome to my second installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe leading up to Captain America: Civil War! So far, I have covered Iron Man last week. If you haven't seen my review of Iron Man, I will put a link at the end of my Incredible Hulk review. So, let's talk about The Incredible Hulk.
When Ang Lee's Hulk movie first came out, a lot of people were vastly disappointed of what they saw back in 2003. They thought that it wasn't the story of the Hulk that everyone was waiting for in terms of the faithful source material from the comics. In fact, when The Incredible Hulk was in production, director Louis Letterier wanted Mark Ruffalo to take part…
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
