Let’s just start with the acting, what a perfect cast ensemble. Edward Norton is a better Bruce Banner than Eric Bana because Edward looks more convincing as a skinny nerd scientist. He embodies the pain and the struggle that his character has to go through. Always running, always hiding, always trying to come up with ways to get rid of the monster in him.
William Hurt and Tim Roth have no problem being the bad guys, having played so many other bad guys in many other movies in the past.
Tim Blake Nelson giving us hints that he’ll become the next arch nemesis The Leader is pretty cool.
Liv Tyler is so damn cute. That girl can melt your heart.
Now to the best part. The category that makes this movie a winner is its awesome CGI visual effects. Bravo to the brains behind this brilliant technological accomplishment.
When Hulk breaks a cop car into half and uses each part as boxing globes, that’s just plain badass!
The images are so much better and more believable,.. the timing could not have been more right to revamp this character.
The storyline helps us understand the characters and their development as they progress but it wastes no time at all on any boring moment.
Magnificent stuntwork as well, especially the chase scene in the small town in Brazil. The whole jumping from one roof to another at high speed with bodies bumping into walls or falling down from a considerable height. I have much respect for the stunt people who broke their bones daily for this movie.
The story has three main long action packed sequences and the last fight scene is just phenomenal. They weren’t kidding when they said that it would last for 26 minutes.
Hulk punches Abomination, Abomination, kicks Hulk, Hulk strangles Abomination, Abomination slams Hulk onto a couple of buildings.. Your inner kid will be happy.
All the elements of this movie have but one purpose only… to entertain your senses to the fullest extent.
Your sight and hearing will be treated with the utmost incredible experience of your lifetime. You will find yourself cheering at how great this movie is.
The cameo by Stan Lee and Lou Ferrigno, who plays Hulk in the old TV series are memorable. The plot also has some punch lines here and there that are silly funny but effective.
I’m glad Lou Ferrigno got to voice the Hulk because I can’t think of anyone else more perfect for the job.
The movie even includes the main theme song from the old TV series starring the late Bill Bixby. What a heartfelt nostalgic tribute.
The teaser at the end when Tony Stark meets Gen. Thunderbolt Ross, that part is a show stopper. Director Louis Leterrier and his crew deserves a standing ovation for successfully making an excellent superhero movie which some people thought was going to be as bad as the first Hulk movie. Well, Louis has proved them wrong.
Summer 2008 may quite possibly be the best summer movie season ever.
