At the center of The Incredible Hulk is an ambitious attempt to marry the two most popular and conflicting visions of the character. The film borrows many elements from the fondly remembered 1970s television series but also incorporates many of the more important elements from the comic book. It's a tough balancing act, but the film makes the disparate elements mix together in a way that makes complete sense and (I believe), leaves fans of both series feeling satisfied. The origin and characterization come largely from the TV series (though, thankfully, it's Dr. BRUCE Banner this time), but the more memorable supporting characters and conflicts from the comic are worked in as well (though Rick Jones was quite fortunately forgotten). Additionally, the enemy is a highly logical choice from the comic book series. Finally, the bad memories of a mutated Nick Nolte are beginning to subside.
The film also incorporates minor elements from the TV movies, the previous film (which is neither acknowledged nor completely contradicted), and even the previous Hulk video game. Of course there are also many wonderful nods to fans of each of the Hulk incarnations. The flashing danger light, the appearance of student reporter "Jack McGee," and Stan Lee's cameo proved to be my personal favorites.Read more ›
Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) is hiding out somewhere in South America, looking for a cure for his gamma-induced affliction, trying to keep his temper in check, keeping a low profile and avoiding a certain General Ross (William Hurt) who intends to make an army of super-soldiers from his own D.N.A.. After being pursued by a team led by Emil Blonsky (Eli Roth), Banner returns to America to pursue a cure and asks longtime love Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) for her help in finding a man named "Mr. Blue" who may be able to cure him of his gamma-powered alter-ego. Blonsky is hot on their trail and asks Ross to experiment further with the workings of gamma radiation and cellular manipulation with him as the guinea pig. Blonsky is a man who wants power--at any cost.

This film never acknowledges the earlier version in any way that I could pick up on; it just acts like that film never existed. There is no father role here for David Banner, but we still have the military's involvement in Banner's gone wrong experiment. There isn't a lot of plot here and many of us already know the story behind the hulk's creation and Banner's attempt to rid himself of the violent alter ego that he transforms into whenever he is either overly excited or angered.
Ed Norton, who contributed to the script, is the perfect David Banner and even reminds one of Bill Bixby who played him on TV (and has a humorous cameo in this film even though he's been dead for many years now). Lou Ferrigno who played the actual Hulk on the TV series also has a cameo as does a young version of the reporter who chased after him on the series. In fact, the light script has numerous references to the old TV series and the comic book as well. The film is serious enough, but has enough wisdom to remember that this is only a film based off of a comic book and not Shakespeare or something as Ang Lee seemed to think he was dealing with in his version of the Hulk which while not a bad film itself, was just not what Marvel fans wanted. This film is much more what Stan Lee and Hulk fans had in mind.
A plot synopsis of this film is rather a waste of time I think as it is fairly true to the comic book and TV series, so I'll just move along to my hits and misses approach:
(1) A much lighter version than the last one. This one is FUN!Read more ›

One of the best movies that I actually enjoyed watching! Happy to have made the right choice.Published 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
I was actually surprised at how good it was. A lot better than the first Hulk movie starring Eric Bana. I think it stayed true to the rest of the Avengers movies.Published 3 days ago by Rebecca L. Lejeune
