The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk second release under the new Marvel Studios banner is a lot bolder and better than the first movie.

It's packed with fast action and well-paced tons of fun adventure.

The basic premise is the same, just as it should be, to find a cure for the gamma radiation that poisoned his body, causing him to transform into a raging not-so-jolly green giant.

This should please all the green movie-goers that were turned off by the first film.

Less artsy than the Ang Lee version and more to the comic book point of view, this Hulk relies heavily on CGI to convince us of the monster's immense power.

Edward Norton practically sleepwalks through his performance, making his alter-ego seem more like the real actor.

Yes, he's a mean, green smashing machine, but they still haven't got it right.

When the movie begins, the new do-over Incredible Hulk is already hiding out in Brazil, trying to find a cure for the gamma-ray exposure that turns him into a violent monster when he gets mad.

Before long, his whereabouts are uncovered, and the film turns into an extended chase as the Hulk tries to cure himself, while eluding the U.S. government, who wants to weaponize the Hulk technology and figure out the science behind what's happening to him, so as to create other Hulks and use them as weapons of mass destruction for the military.

This is a fun comic book flick that is staged for maximum destructive excitement, in my view.
