Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, stars of the late '70s, live-action television series The Incredible Hulk, cap a run of sporadic TV movies based on the old show with Death of the Incredible Hulk. The gloomy title says it all. Bixby's Dr. David Banner, spiritually exhausted after years of rage-induced transformations into a snarling, green monster, takes a last stab at finding a cure by posing as a retarded janitor in a government-funded research laboratory. His secret collaboration with a scientist (Philip Sterling) on "killing" the Hulk's genetic viability goes awry when a gorgeous foreign spy (Barbara Tarbuck) disrupts a crucial procedure and invites the wrath of brutal terrorists, the federal government, and, yes, the big man (Ferrigno) himself. With death chains rattling in the background, various ironies in the story become poignant: After years of isolation, Banner finds friendship and love just in time to risk it all for a lasting peace. --Tom Keogh

"The Death of the Incredible Hulk" has some rather dramatically exciting moments (particularly in the first half, during which Banner's mysterious guiding of the research of the elder scientist is discovered, he reveals his identity, and work begins and nearly ends on curing him of his 12-year curse). Bill Bixby gives perhaps his best performance as Dr. David Banner, aside from the pilot, and all appears in the first act or so to be the makings of perhaps the very best, and final, entry in the series. Supporting players, including Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk, are adaquately covered (despite the weakest of first Hulk-outs in the saga as Banner is mugged in the opening minutes and subsequently changes into the Hulk and throws the muggers around and crashes into some walls). Then, the spy plot enters in and we are forced to watch as once again David Banner's hopes for a cure are ruined and in the rage of which he becomes the Hulk further complicatiung any possibility of his ever getting a second crack at the method. The spy plot subsequently consumes the remainder of the film and thus depreciates the film's overall rating. Banner comes through yet another series of heroic events and saves the day (with the help of course of his 7-foot alter ego). Then, as if the screenwriters remembered that they had to justify the title, Banner gets angry one last time and chases down a plane. The Hulk unintentionally causes the plane to explode and then falls in slow motion to the ground with a thud. Dying, the Hulk changes back into David Banner to survive long enough for Bill Bixby to utter the last words, with tears in his white eyes, "Yasmine, I am free... Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ending to the series May 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Rather than sit and berate the fact that Hulk dies in this movie (sorry if I spoiled that for you, but the title should have been a hint), be thankful that this series gets a treatment that a LOT of others never do: an ending. While "The Fugitive" stands as an exception, most series of this nature usually just fade into oblivion and force you to make up your own ending (anyone remember "Nowhere Man"?). I, for one, thought this movie was excellent, and the storyline was good. Yes, there were some cheesy moments, but it's a TV movie about a comic book, for crying out loud! Give 'em some credit! All in all, this movie has a solid plot, and Banner's last words truly were a perfect ending to it (though the manner of Hulk's death seems sort of haphazardly thrown in at the last minute). Well worth viewing and owning!

Format:DVD
"The Incredible Hulk" ran on CBS from 1978 to 1982, starring Bill Bixby as Dr. David Bruce Banner and body builder Lou Ferrigno as his giant green alter ego. The television series kept Banner on the run, while reporter Jack McGee (Jack Colvin) dogged his heels. Basically it was a set up similar to "The Fugitive," except every week at some point Banner would have to become the Hulk. The key line was so obvious they worked it into the opening credits when Banner warned the reporter: "Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." Fans certainly did, even if they never read the Marvel comic books about ol' greenskin. When the television series went off the air NBC aired an animated version of "The Incredible Hulk" as part of its Saturday morning lineup that run from September 1982 to September 1985.

In 1988, Bixby, Ferrigno and Colvin returned for the first in a series of television movies, "The Incredible Hulk Returns." This was followed the next year by "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk," which ditched the reporter character and replaced him with another Marvel superhero, Daredevil (a.k.a. Matt Murdock). Then in 1989 we have what proved to be the last television movie of the Hulk, which makes sense when you look at the title of the film (there were rumors of a sequel, but Bixby's death in 1993 made that impossible). Bixby directed this television movie, so you have to think this is how he wanted to the series to end.

People think Banner is dead, so he is laying low, calling himself David Bellamy and working as a janitor at a high security research facility. David seems to be a bit slow, always forgetting his thermos and leaving by the wrong exit, but he has been there for several months and the guards are used to his slow ways.

1.0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking? December 28, 2000
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
Before I saw this video,I was lucky enough to see some episodes of the show. Seeing this,I think that Dr. Banner should have had a happy ending to his situation. Killing him and the Hulk didn't solve anything and was really senseless,either in this fictional movie or in real life! It's too bad Mr. Bixby isn't alive to comment,because I think he may not have been too happy with it either. I give this a no-star rating,in fact I think I'll give away my copy!

2.0 out of 5 stars What a Shame October 18, 2005
Format:DVD
I would have to call this a very lackluster finale to what was an otherwise amazing run for the Incredible Hulk. The original TV series seemed to be the standard that none of the later made-for-tv movies could touch. "Trial of.." and "The Return of..." both seemed to lack the production quality of the series - and this movie was even worse in that regard.

The death of such an awe-inspiring character as the Incredible Hulk should have been part of a far better-written and better-developed script. This movie just doesn't do it for me. The acting is below par and the story drags along predictably. Nothing about this will raise your eyebrows...

Pick this movie up if you're trying to collect as much Hulk footage as possible - otherwise, don't bother. You will most likely not watch it more than once.
