As the superhero-packed summer season continues, Kidzworld takes a look at the meanest, greenest kid on the block, The Incredible Hulk!

Marvel-ous

Five years ago, The Hulk took a crack at bringing everyone’s favorite green guy to the big screen with little success. Now, here we are in 2008 and Marvel has its own film studio, and seems intent to bring all of our iconic superheroes into theaters across the world. Iron Man was a huge success, and now The Incredible Hulk tries to keep that momentum going.

In the Army Now

Since almost everyone knows that Bruce Banner was caught in a Gamma Ray explosion and now turns into the Hulk whenever he gets stressed out, this movie doesn’t waste much time on the background story. We find Bruce (Ed Norton) in Rio De Janiero, working for a soda company, celebrating 158 relaxing days without turning into the Hulk, and trying to find an antidote to his new condition. Unfortunately, the army, led by General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross, refuses to forget about Bruce, believing him to be their property. This is a problem.

Fight For Your Right

British Royal Marine Emil Blonsky is recruited to find and capture Banner, but once he sees the Hulk’s awesome power, he wants some of it himself. Thunderbolt is more than happy to help him out, turning the soldier into the Abomination, a creature who rivals the Hulk in freakish strength, and this transformation sets up the city-trashing final fight between the two where only one can be left standing.

The Bottom Line

The first Hulk movie was criticized for being too slow and emotional, so from the beginning chase scenes through the streets of Rio de Janiero, The Incredible Hulk keeps the action coming. When the plot slows down a bit, Liv Tyler plays Banner’s love interest, and these scenes do a nice job of adding some sentiment and even comic relief to the flick. One negative would be that the final battle between the Hulk and the Abomination feels like something we’ve seen before, whether it’s Iron Man fighting Obadiah Stane, or even Spider-man versus Venom. But the CGI smashing stuff is still pretty sweet. The end of the movie also has a bonus scene Marvel fans will be stoked about.
