Academy Award nominee Edward Norton stars as scientist Bruce Banner, a man who has been living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote to the unbridled force of rage within him: the Hulk. But when the military masterminds who dream of exploiting his powers force him back to civilization, he finds himself coming face to face with his most formidable foe: the Abomination – a nightmarish beast of pure aggression whose powers match the Hulk’s own! Also starring Liv Tyler, Oscar nominee Tim Roth, and Oscar winner William Hurt, The Incredible Hulk is "steeped in action and spectacular special effects" (Claudia Puig, USA TODAY) and delivers a mind-blowing final showdown that can only be summed up with one word...INCREDIBLE!

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.
