The Incredible Hulk

None June 19th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: B

It's going to gall a lot of people, but it took a French director, Louis Leterrier ("Transporter 2") to make a good movie out of the Hulk comic books.

Edward Norton ("The Illusionist") stars as Bruce Banner, who becomes the angry Hulk when his emotions are aroused, and the CGI department stars as the Hulk. Liv Tyler (" The Strangers") is Banner's girlfriend and protector"”they share a nice King Kong moment on a mountain side in the rain. William Hurt ("Vantage Point") is Gen. Ross, Army villain, and Tim Roth is the assistant Army villain, soon to move into first place. Tim Blake Nelson ("The Astronaut Farmer") is along for semi-comic relief and a hint of things to come.

Adults will enjoy the goofiness and top notch effects, and kids will enjoy what they love in the comics"”a big green kid who's always getting into trouble for being energetic and clumsy and misunderstood. PG-13
