VIDEO: The Incredible Hulk (2008)

Joey follows up his review of Ang Lee’s Hulk with this review of the sequel with Edward Norton as Bruce Banner. The movie got much more favorable reviews from critics and fans alike, but does that really mean this is the “good” Hulk movie?

    Nice job, I Actully like Norton’s take. I’m not a big hulk fan, however I liek this take and intro to the MCU,and it led to Mark’s Hulk. I Never really think you can compare or contrast. TASM exist only to be comapred and contrast [when that film is crap.] amazing work Joey.

    I agree with many of your points, both of the films have flaws that keep them from being as good as they could be and both have their merits.
    One thing I’ll add is that, IMO, this movie actually did a better super solider depiction than the Captain America film. Even pre-Abomination it’s obvious that Blonsky is a bouncing CGI doll, however the strength, precision and agility really come off as “super” soldier rather than merely a very strong/fast guy. Captain A only has moments where he does super soldier stuff and through most of the action sequences he appears to have only normal human strength and reflexes.

    Not to be “that guy”, but it’s Tim Blake Nelson… not William.

    Sorry…

  • I saw the Leader’s part in this as a look-what’s-in-store. He wanted to manufacture the Hulk formula and was more of a mad scientist, then he got irradiated blood to infect his mind. That is awesome. It would have made for a strong sequel in my mind.

    Nice thoughts. I agree with a lot, one note though. “The Incredible Hulk” is not actually related to “The Hulk” at all. It’s not a sequel, at all. Thus all the ‘retconning’, which it actually isn’t. It’s a new intro to the way this movie world works for the new iteration.

      I know. I thought I mentioned it was a reboot when I said how “most reboots tend to be flat out origin stories when this decides to put us into the middle of the action.” I just found it interesting that someone could walk into this assuming it left off from the last one with Banner on the run in South America.
