No real surprises here: this is a pretty by-the-book superhero movie, with the usual trial against adversity culminating in the obligatory big set-piece battle. Having said that it is done well, and is fun to watch. Edward Norton makes for a sympathetic Bruce Banner, and. although initially seeming like an unlikely choice, Tim Roth is suitably nasty as the marine who enthusiastically undergoes Hulkification in order to attempt destruction of the original. But the story feels a bit thin and there's not enough humour. Although far from a failure it still falls short of a complete success, and the green giant certainly deserves better.
first this is not a sequel its a reboot , that aside the CGI of the hulk is just outstanding and even the storyline is well written , the super solider has its introduction to this movie ( for those that dont know what that is , its how captain america was "made") also a nice touch to tie in the avengers movie.
This is NOT a sequel. It is a reboot, so don't bother buying the horrible Ang Lee version. You'd be wasting your time.
This one has much more action, a better story, way cooler villain and an excellent model for the hulk.
You should probably watch Iron man first though.
After the AWFUL Ang Lee Hulk, I was hoping that this was going to be a much more improved attempt at a film interpretation of the iconic character and I was not disappointed.
The film disregards the last film entirely and returns to the roots of the original 60's TV series with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno (who makes a cameo in the film), following Bruce Banner as a fugitive on the run whilst trying to find a cure for the Hulk.
This film is MUCH better than the last film, with better casting, more realistic CGI especially in the case of the Hulk, more action and leaps straight into the story with a brief origin montage in the opening credits. There is no arthouse shots of fungus and no super power battles in the dark, this is how the Hulk should be.
