The best Hulk movie ever! There is nothing in this Incredible Hulk that I don't like. I love Ed Norton as Hulk, love Liv Taylor as Betty. Their acting are incredible. In my opinion, Ed's version of Hulk is one million times better than the avengers' Mark Ruffalo. Ed is much more convincing and you'd feel the pain, sorrow and sympathy for him and he'd make you like him.
Not seen this film in over 5 years but I remember it being an under rated film at the time. This was made around the start of the MCU, shortly after Iron man started it all off. I bought this recently on 4K and it looks stunning. One of the MCU's better films and even more impressive in 4K. A perfect 4K transfer and looks like it was made last year. If, like me, you liked this film when it was released, you will love it now. Very impressive. Even though I have seen it a couple of times a good few years ago and can remember the whole story, I was still gripped from start to finish. In fact I like it more now than I did then. I hope Marvel/Disney start re-releasing all of the MCU films in 4K on a regular basis. Very pleased with the purchase. Tim Roth is excellent.
Coming right after the great Iron Man intro movie, this one is a bit of a letdown. Edward Norton lacks the screen chemistry necessary to endear an audience to the character. The beginning of the movie is promising enough, giving us a much too brief history of the character. Once the movie leaves Brasil to come to Los angeles, and it goes into the relationship with Liv Tyler's character the movie sort of loses momentum. Tim Roth and William Hurt are far more watchable and interesting in the movie than its lead is, which is a problem when you're trying to center a movie around him. There are a few nice nods to the comic, the cave rainy scene for example, that are done quite nicely here. Stan Lee has one of his best cameos. Ty Burrell shows up for 5 minutes to play the thankless role of the cuckolded husband of Betty Ross, and the CG fight scenes in NY at the end are quite nice to watch. I'm glad they recast this role going into Avengers, this clearly didn't work as well
