"The Incredible Hulk" is sort of a weak link in the Marvel Universe, but it's also an entertaining ride.

Not Quite Incredible, But.. It’s not a bad film, It’s just this movie really doesn’t have the Story juices but it’s still a decently fun film I guess. Fresh Or Rotten?: Fresh

Louis Leterrier's take on the green hero is a vast improvement on Ang Lee's 2003 travesty, undeniably one of the worst superhero films ever. However, the film still doesn't touch on the vulnerability of its hero and, rather, seems content to continue to use the Hulk as one giant CGI effect, rather than the character he deserves to be. I found Edward Norton a big improvement on Eric Bana from the 2003 film (but, then again, the Incredible Hulk improves on that film in nearly every aspect,) but I found Mark Ruffalo, of the Avengers to be an even more charming and introspective portrayal of Banner. So, I guess, the Incredible Hulk is an entertaining film, but doesn't really touch the upper echelon of hero films, populated by the Nolans and Whedons of today.

Ang Lee's version of The Hulk was met with a lot of criticism but I thought it was a brave if flawed attempt to make a more cerebral superhero film. The fact is, a character whose catchphrase is "Hulk smash!" wasn't the best choice for that approach (although I think Lee would've made a great Daredevil film. Que sera sera...) The studio obviously tried to address the situation by making a much more formulaic action film for the sequel, which is understandable. But they overcompensated. The plot to this film can be summed up by: Evil general sends the troops after Ed. He runs away trying to keep his temper but can't. Hulk smash. He escapes. Evil general sends the troops after Ed. He runs away trying to keep his temper but can't. Hulk smash. Evil general creates another monster to fight …

This is not really better than the other one nor is it worse. It has more action scenes but the story is lacking more. At the same time it does not praddle on as much and Ed Norton is actually slightly better than Eric Bana who over did the anger. Betty Banner was better in the first and Ross is more or less the same. The villains both result in a fight this ones fight is better. This one has the lame comic book in joking which i never like but the other one had that foolish comic book framing visual. The special effects are better in this one but it still looks fake. The story in this one has little to it and it is not compelling. The action scenes are okay though but that is not enough to recommend. Neither is great because Hulk is better as a supporting character. Although I think …
