Incredible Hulk


Starring:

Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, Tim Blake Nelson, Ty Burrell

Review:

First, a little score keeping: Ang Lee's thoughtful, Freudian Hulk in 2003 was nowhere near as bad as its rep. And Louis Letterier's proudly pea-brained The Incredible Hulk is nowhere near incredible. In fact, in its rush to deliver a constant rush of action it forgets to think at all. But the latest spin on the Marvel comic-book hero delivers the popcorn goods. I like what Marvel is doing since it took over its franchise business from Hollywood starting with Jon Favreau's smart and splendid Iron Man. The overqualified casting of Robert Downey, Jr., Jeff Bridges, Terrence Howard and Gwyneth Paltrow paid mucho dividends, as it does in The Incredible Hulk. Edward Norton is the ideal live wire to plug into the role of Bruce Banner, the scientist with such a fire inside that his rage takes...

It's just too bad that Norton is refusing to do PR for the new movie and likely will not be back for any sequels (the other principals are under contract but Norton was a one-shot only agreement).
