Movie Review: The Incredible Hulk

*** MIGTH CONTAIN SPOILERS! ***

Featuring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt

Genre: action, sci fi

Plot: Direct sequel to Hulk.

Comments: I only watched this because it had Edward Norton in it and William Hurt, though I didn’t recognize William Hurt at first. He looks just odd rounder and with white hair. For a sequel it wasn’t bad, in fact it was better than the first one. My main complaint is that like with most comics inspired movies, there's lots of action and not enough plot. Sure, the CGIs are cool, but one cannot stop thinking that Edward Norton is wasted in such a part. He needs more screen time as himself. The appearance of Robert Downey Jr./Stark in the end was a hoot. Better than Iron Man because it was less schematic and more heartfelt.

Rating: 8/10

this new Incredible Hulk is a lot more fun than the first one with Eric Bana; as usual Ed Norton has gravitated to a "split personality" role...
