The Incredible Hulk Review: By the looks of the ending of Ang Lee’s Hulk (2003) it seemed that there is going to be a sequel. After 5 years we now have The Incredible Hulk which is a reboot like Batman Begins. The reboot was a better idea than a sequel because Hulk (2003) wasn’t a bad movie but wasn’t even great either and was better off as a one film itself. But if the first attempt at a Hulk movie left you feeling a little green, good news. This version has a whole new cast, a whole new mood, and even a whole new retelling of The Hulk’s origin.
The film was outrageously entertaining, fun and a perfect popcorn movie. It is the same director of The Transporter 2 so it is bound to have good action. You can see every penny spent from the $130 million budget. It is roughly (not exactly) the same amount as Hulk (2003) and The Incredible Hulk looks much, much more expensive. The story is about Bruce Banner who is trying to cure is condition that turns him into a monster but is going to use it as his weapon against the Abomination. The plot may seem simple but it is better that way because you can just concentrate on the action and the monsters.
This time the Hulk is more darker and sinister looking and is more muscular than Ang Lee’s Hulk. The Abomination was the icing & cherry on the cake. His name really does match his personality and he is not wearing any underpants, so girls you might want to look away otherwise you might get a fright. Overall The Incredible Hulk is Incredible not an Abomination.
