Excellent ending to the series,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Death of the Incredible Hulk [VHS] (VHS Tape)
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!

Actually the title doesn't necessarily mean the Hulk dies. A lot of films have titles that swerve viewers. And you know it. You just wanted to toss out a massive spoiler. Congrats, mission accomplished.

You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding, because if you aren't then you're a massive dimwit. How is the title of the movie not a spoiler? Or, in fact, how is Brian's review a spoiler if he says exactly the same thing as the title of the movie? Had the title been "The End of the Incredible Hulk" or something like that then yes, he'd be spoiling, but guess what? The title is actually very specific and leaves nothing to the imagination. So don't be a smartass.

In actuality there was a sequel planned but when Bill Bixby was diagnosed with prostate cancer they put the project on hold. He died in 1993 thus no sequel.

I've read that the person who wrote this flick and was going to create the fourth movie said that Mr. Bixby wasn't struggling at the time. The project was canceled due to bad TV ratings.
"Nowhere Man" is one of the greatest mind-messing shows, by the way.
