  • In my opinion, Ang Lee must be green with envy (pun intended) over Leterrier's version of The Incredible Hulk
  • I recommend this movie to any comic book fan and anyone who felt robbed by the 2003 version

      The Incredible Hulk (2008) is an action film by Louis Leterrier and is rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action violence, some frightening sci-fi images, and brief suggestive content.

      The Incredible Hulk picks up with Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) living in Brazil where he’s ran to hide out from General Ross (William Hurt) who wants his body to dissect it for scientific purposes so he can use the gamma radiation for war. General Ross sends a team, led by Emile Blonsky (Tim Roth), to Brazil to capture him and bring him back to the US. After Blonsky fails and Banner escapes back to the US, General

      Ross starts giving Blonsky gamma radiation to make it a more fair fight between him and Banner. Of course Blonsky becomes power hungry and gets an overdose of the gamma and becomes The Abomination. The Hulk and The Abomination end up doing battle in the streets of the city to see who’s the strongest.

      Louis Leterrier’s, best known for The Transporter series, The Incredible Hulk blew the 2003 Ang Lee version out of the water. This one stuck more true to the comic books and focused more on the action than the psychological part, which is where Lee’s version failed for me. All or ...

      • the CGI was perfect and the action sequences were very satisfying. The final battle between the Hulk and the Abomination was awesome, especially when the Hulk breaks a car into two halves and grabs them by the axels to use them as shields. Edward Norton was a much better choice as Bruce Banner than Eric Bana was, and he does a great job. Also, Tim Roth did a fine job as the antagonist. I didn’t like William Hurt’s performance too much. It didn’t feel like he was putting all he had into the role, and the only thing that was better in
        Lee’s version was Jennifer Connelly as Betty Ross instead of Liv Tyler in the newer version. She just isn’t a convincing actress to me, ever.

        In my opinion, Ang Lee must be green with envy (pun intended) over Leterrier’s version of The Incredible Hulk. It was all around a better film and didn’t try to be more than a comic book movie. It wasn’t better than Iron Man, but it’s still better than most of the comic book movies that come out once a month. I recommend this movie to any comic book fan and anyone who felt robbed by the 2003 version.
