movies at a glance: “The Incredible Hulk” June 18, 2008

Posted by patrick.klepek in movies.

The Incredible Hulk: I should probably preface this with the idea that I actually did enjoy Ang Lee‘s Hulk from a years back. Without any real knowledge of Hulk as a character, I thought it worked brilliantly (barring the mutant dogs) until the bizarre ending sequence. But I knew that serious encapsulation of the character could never last.

People want to see “Hulk smash!”And I don’t blame them; The Incredible Hulk is spectacularly enjoyable as a monster fest. The story is shallow and Edward Norton seems bored through most of the flick (hardcore fans seem to be describing his perfmance as “weighted,” but I didn’t see it), but the “Hulk smash!” factor is through the roof, and it’s worthwhile for that alone. It’s truly a movie that benefits from seeing it on the big screen and watching the downtown destruction ensue.

Just check your brain at the door.
