Here, our movie starts of with Ed Norton portraying the titular character in Brazil (picking up where the 2003 story left off). He poor, depressed about not being able to go home, maintaining a very low profile to avoid the public eye at all costs; I felt for this version of Bruce Banner. I did his best to stay calm, but when push came to shove and then pushed some more, Hulk pushed back!!! The creators of this film said they wanted their Hulk to have a giant, green linebacker look, and it works! Hulk is intimidating, powerful, above all angry, and I still get chills hearing him speak for the first time from the shadows.
I would have preferred for Ed Norton to continue this role, but alas, Hollywood. The story for the film is not overly complex. It runs like a long episode of the old tv show. Bruce is trying to stay away from the army, he slips up, and they go after him again. The movie is excellent by itself but definitely ties into the early days of the MCU. If you have never seen this film, I highly recommend it!
Lastly, love the steelbook comic book design. Check it out in the photos.
But, looks aside. This story is really done well. I like the way that the movie doesn't spend a lot of time explaining how he became the Hulk. The acting is done well. I like Ed Norton, but he did seem a bit out-of-place in this one. They should've gotten an unknown actor. I didn't think he'd stick around for the Avengers and any other subsequent Hulk movies.
The Blu-Ray edition looks good. Sound is really good as well. Overall, I like this movie. I would've like to seen a better looking Hulk.
For us, personally, we would have liked to have seen the plot begin earlier in the Hulk's history -- to see how he became the Hulk. The beginning credits do a fairly good job of catching the viewer up by showing newspaper headlines and short video clips that depict that story in brief, so someone who had really never seen a Hulk story before wouldn't be totally lost. I think we're just used to the "typical" superhero movie spending more time on the creation story of each main character. I could appreciate by the end of the film why the producers chose not to spend unnecessary time on that aspect -- so this particular episode could bring us farther along in the story without making the film unbearably long. I guess it just felt more like a sequel to us. If you watch it with that idea in mind, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
The story line, acting, and special effects were all good. Again, we really had no complaints. Of course, it's not 100% believable, but I think that's to be expected with this type of film. One watches a superhero movie to be entertained, not educated, and to see good triumph over evil. The Incredible Hulk did not disappoint in any aspect of that formula. I'd say it was a "worth seeing" movie, but not necessarily a "must see" one.
