Road to Infinity War Review: The Incredible Hulk

No comments

The Incredible Hulk is the MCU’s introduction to the green guy after the failure of Ang Lee’s Hulk Movie. The Incredible Hulk learned many lessons from that first attempt but it also repeats some of the mistakes while making all new ones.

The movie follows Bruce Banner who is on the run from the US government after a failed science experiment turned him into the Hulk. Eventually General Ross accidentally creates a monster to help capture Banner who goes off the rails and forces Banner to embrace the Hulk and become a hero. The story seems simple enough and that’s because it is. This is the kind of movie that doesn’t change the status quo at all. In many ways the characters all end in the same place that they started in. The movie as a whole lacks purpose and feels ultimately forgettable.

That’s not to say there’s not good things in it. The hulk transformations are the best out of all the hulk movies. Edward Norton also makes for a great Banner,one that’s constantly afraid of losing control. William Hurt looks like he’s having a blast in every scene he’s in. The action is also pretty fun to look at despite some dated CGI and the final battle looking like a video game cut scene. The Incredible Hulk May not be the movie the character deserves but it’s a fun ride that’s worth the watch.
