Genre: Action, Comics

Summary: Marvel movies rock, but The Incredible Hulk (2008) wasn’t perfect.

What I liked: The cgi and computer graphics continued to wow me in this version of Hulk. They just keep getting better and better with each Marvel movie. This movie was definitely better than the 2003 movie. I was surprised to see some really good actors in this movie, like Ed Norton and Tim Roth. And some of the ones that were more low key turned out to be pretty good. I like the fact that they included Tony Stark in this movie. He said something about making a force with other people like him and the Hulk, so I’m anticipating the next Marvel movie to be Ultimate Alliance. I hope.

It was also cool that they gave cameo tribute to the original tv Bruce Banner and Hulk actors. In fact Lou Ferrigno did the voice of the Hulk this time too.

Didn’t like: The idea of this whole movie is really cool, a buff green man that loses control and smashes things, what more could you ask for? Honestly though, I don’t mean to be a sourpuss, but it’s so unbelievable. Just the thought of a man growing triple his size, green, and being able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and then have all of his bones and skin return to normal is ludicrous.

Aside from that, I noticed something that Iron man and this movie had in common that I didn’t like. They both ended up fighting something that was almost exactly what they were. Where’s the creativity? I wanted to see some cool new villains with new special powers, and instead I ended up seeing double.

One last thing that bugged me was how they didn’t explain some of the stuff that happened. For instance, some of Bruce’s blood fell into a cut on the scientist’s head, causing it to ripple and grow. But they didn’t show anything after that. [I’ve been told that the scientist was supposed to be Hulk villain The Leader, though in the comic books the Leader started as a janitor. I smell sequel.]

Recommend for: 8 – 18. Acting fans will love Ed Norton, who always earns his pay.
