So there was much rejoicing when the franchise got rebooted five years later with "The Incredible Hulk." This is what a movie about a giant green rage-monster should be -- a lean, muscular action movie with a thread of bittersweet romance, and solid performances by William Hurt, Edward Norton and Liv Tyler.
A few years ago, Bruce Banner was exposed to gamma radiation in a failed military experiment, which turned him into a giant green berserker. Ever since then, the cruel General Ross (Hurt) has been mercilessly pursuing him, so they can create giant green soldiers.
And after a few years hiding in Brazil, Banner is finally found by the military... only to end up on the run after he Hulks his way out of the confrontation. He may be able to get a cure, but only if he gets the original data from the experiment, which means sneaking back into the US to see his ex-girlfriend Betty (Tyler). Betty is also Ross's daughter. Awkward.
And after the military attacks him again, Banner ends up hulking out, then goes on the run with Betty to find a cure. But he doesn't know that Ross has taken special measures to capture him, by dosing elite soldier Neil Blonsky (Tim Roth) with a supersoldier serum -- which unleashes a monster far worse than the Hulk.
"The Incredible Hulk" gave audiences everything that Ang Lee's movie was missing. It has pretty much everything you can ask from a movie about a giant green id-monster -- lots of explosions, gunfire, chases, and a core story about a man whose life is destroyed by the ambitious people who want to use the Hulk's power.Read more ›
Another Hulk movie you say? You're probably wondering if this movie is similar to Ang Lee's 2003 movie "Hulk." Surprisingly, it's not. It's better! How can this be? Oh, it be!
This movie is not a sequel to 2003's "Hulk" but rather is a reinvention that establishes a new back-story where Dr. Bruce Banner (Edward Norton, who rewrote some of the script) becomes the Hulk as a pawn in a military scheme to reinvigorate a "super soldier" program through gamma radiation. (Why and how Banner becomes the Hulk is established in the movie's opening credits.)
On the run, Banner attempts to cure himself of the Hulk before he's captured by General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross (William Hurt). The General's worst fears are realized when power-hungry soldier (Tim Roth) becomes a similar but more Hulk-like creature (called the "Abomination").
This movie has it all: action, drama, humour, (dare I say) incredible special effects, and good acting (with one exception).
I missed Jennifer Connelly who played Dr. Elizabeth "Betty" Ross in the 2003 movie. Here she's replaced by Liv Tyler who's rather bland.
The CGI creation of the Hulk was quite good. This movie did not over rely on special effects but let the actors do their jobs. It was only at the end where (as you can probably guess) there's a confrontation between the Hulk and the Abomination that the movie becomes cartoon-like.
Be sure to look for a few cameo appearances. Do not miss, especially, Lou Ferrigno (who played the Hulk in the late 1970's television series). He voiced the words said by the CGI Hulk in this movie. (Lou...what a guy!!)
I also liked the "Days without Incident" meter. I thought this was a nice touch.Read more ›
Dr. Bruce Banner. Scientist. Researcher. Genius.
Victim of a Gamma Ray experiment gone horribly wrong.
Dr. Bruce Banner. Hulk.
And the military knows it. They were there. They saw what he became--a hulking, big green behemoth made of pure muscle, rage and power--and the damage he caused.
Bruce (Edward Norton) has been on the run from them ever since, keeping a low profile and doing everything within his power to find a cure for the gamma poisoning that created the beast caged inside him. And now he thinks he has one, so he ventures back to the States to meet a scientist codenamed "Mr. Blue" whom he's been chatting with over a secure internet line to work up a cure. He also accidentally runs into the love of his life, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), and the two are now on the run from Betty's hotheaded military father, General Thaddeus "Thunerbolt" Ross (William Hurt), who wants to turn the Hulk into a weapon.
They evade him for the most part until General Ross decides to supe-up his special soldier, Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), and, once that super soldier proves not enough of a threat to the Hulk, Emil takes it on himself to make himself a greater match and forces Dr. Blue, aka Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake Nelson), to turn him into something else--an Abomination.
Now only the Hulk can stop this new mammoth creature and the two wage a crazy, awe-inspiring war through the streets of New York.
It's time for Hulk to smash.
I admit when I first heard about this movie I was leery. It was only five years before that Ang Lee's Hulk came out and I knew that The Incredible Hulk was meant to be a reboot, so I wasn't sure what to expect and, really, a reboot after only five years was just plain silly.Read more ›
