I know more about Hulk than I know about Iron Man, with this is mind I thought I can watch Hulk as well. I still don’t know much about Hulk, just that he is a green mean angry giant. About Iron Man, I didn’t know a thing, oh maybe just that he is a man with a Iron suit. I would also like to mention that I haven’t seen Eric Bana starring Hulk which was released in 2003.
The Incredible Hulk is about scientist Dr. Bruce Banner aka Hulk, who during a research project about a super solider, is turned into Hulk due to exposure to gamma radiation. So Bruce Banner is now a fugitive from the United States Army is on the run. He then is tracked by the Army and he eventually manages to escape them and return home where he meets his old colleague Betty (Liv Tyler). And then there is another man who is given the supersoldier serum, who eventually becomes an even bigger and meaner version of Hulk. So Hulk must now fight him and defeat him.
So that was the story, it might sound boring to you, but trust me its not, especially when you see it on the screen with all those superb visual effects. Acting wise Edward Norton did a fantastic job. His acting seems to be very natural and gave a good performance. Liv Tyler plays the love interest of Edward Norton and was pretty good. Tim Roth, who plays Russian-born British special operations expert Emil Blonsky did a great job too. The rest of the actors were good. The CGI work done for Hulk was very good and he looked very real without loosing any of the strong character that Hulk is. He looked mean, strong and big, and ofcourse green. The action scenes of him fighting Emil Blonsky were really good.
So overall, the sound effects were good, locales were great at times, action scenes were well done, visual effects were top notch. All in all a good summer action movie.
