The Official "I Just Watched Hulk 08" Thread
 
Well well, it looks like Marvel managed to pull it off...again. It seems Marvel really took a hard look at Ang Lees' Hulk, realised what a bit of a fuck up it was (even though I still enjoyed it) and made a very noble attempt to give us the Hulk movie most of us really wanted.

First of all I just want to get this out of the way, The Incredible Hulk is not as good as Iron Man. It's not really the movies fault per say, it's just that Bruce Banner is no Tony Stark so he lacks the certain charisma that made Robert Downey Jr in the role so enjoyable to watch. This is not to say that Edward Norton did not put in a good performance, on the contrary he was is brilliant, giving the character the intensity that was needed, you could feel the sense of desperation as Banner desparately tries to find a cure for his condition only to be met with failure again and again. Tim Roth as Emil Blonski (Abomination) gave a good menacing performance although far from his best and I did feel his role was a little underwritten, I just never fully understood his reasons for decisions he made but it was an otherwise interesting character.
William Hurt as General (Thunderbolt) Ross was great, his reasons for wanting the Hulk may have been obvious but his real motivation was alot more personal giving him a lot more layers which I think people will discover in time with repeated viewings.

The sfx in this movie in my opinion were fantastic, Hulk looks twice as good as he did in the previous film, some may argue that he still looked fake or whatever but I was truly immersed in this Marvel universe....Thats right Marvel Universe. There are loads of geek refrences for you to spot along with a surprise visit by a now well known character.

The story was pretty straight forward, it simply moved from point A to point B and it worked, the movie never gets bogged down with exposition, it just gets on with it to a very satisfying conclusion.

Overall this was a great film with good characters and plenty of top action, Marvel has easily made amends from the last film and I would rank this one in the top ten best superhero movies, solid all the way.

This is for everyone by the way, drop your comments and your own reviews too.

But still I dont get it. How can they just act like the first one never existed. I went to the first one at the cinema, paid my money, and they want me to go do that again, just because? nah. thats some BS. The OG one wasnt more than a few years ago, it wasnt amazing, but it was acceptable. Why should I trust this one wil be any different.

When I first saw the ads for this it was like Groundhog Day for REAL. When it was clear it wasnt a sequel, but still by Marvel, I was looking around me at other people like hold on, didnt we just have this film?

Hollywodd is getting lazier and lazier.

They don't completely ignore the previous flick, if you remember that one ended with Banner in South America, this movie opens in Brazil. It's not a re-do but it isn't a sequel either.

I personally liked the other flick myself but I'm sure this version will be done better. I might peep it tomorrow and then give my review.

oDoUoSoKo 06-12-2008 09:44 PM

HANZO 06-13-2008 05:04 PM

I heard Ironman & The Hulk are gonna have a big fight... some comic boy told me

LuckyTheWonderDog 06-13-2008 05:42 PM

Pissed I'm on nights so can't go see this til next week.

I don't think the original was a bad film, but it wasn't the film they should have made. A film about The Incredible Hulk shouldn't be handled by an arthouse director. He's great at what he does, but was totally wrong to be in charge of a Hulk film.

I'm looking forward to this one, although from the footage I've watched the Hulk doesn't look particularly convincing. That's not really a comment on this film, but more that CGI still hasn't really pulled off making human or humanoids look believable facially.

Definately gonna go see it next week though and I love the fact they're linking them all together in order to set the scene for The Avengers film.

I think that's gonna happen in the Avengers film.

watched it on the plane this afternoon via chinese bootleg.

i like how this one was true to the tv series down to the lonely piano sndtk.

the intro was an updated tv intro.

they even addressed my "how does he keep his pants?" question.

the ang lee version had better action sequences esp hulk vs the military scene but this one was much better in terms of a viable script and fuller char dev.

cap america...?

avengers is gonna be crazy!

thor is an avenger too right?

smh....this is gonna be epic.

I'm going to go see the movie tomorrow, but I must ask, I am 18 so I really don't know everything, is Antman in the avengers too? and who's dropping next, are they gonna do a Thor movie or just jump straight to the avengers flick?
