Having been transformed into the Hulk, Bruce Banner has escaped to Brazil away from those in the US army desperate to capture him. After months without being detected he is slowly managing to get a grip on controlling the beast within. That is until the Army discover where he is and come looking for him. Still searching for a cure Bruce evades capture but knows his only chance of becoming normal again is to return to the United States despite the real possibility the Army might find him.

There have been so many poor comic book adaptations that until recently you could count the good ones on one hand. In fact even the original Hulk movie was pretty poor but the series has been reinvented under a new director and a new lead actor. These changes have lead to a much better and far more enjoyable movie the second time round and at times it made you forget that there had even been a movie made in 2003 let alone remembering how bad it actually was.

Louis Leterrier who was the man behind the 2nd Transporter movie and is currently working on the forthcoming Clash Of The Titans movie occupies the director's chair for this second instalment. The improvement is significant as the film seems to flow a lot easier and feels a lot more enjoyable than the first movie. The special effects are still stunning and work very well at creating the Hulk as realistically as you can with a giant green monster. Of course whether it be the Hulk himself or the action sequences it seems that Leterrier has really shown what a Hollywood action version of a comic book should be about.

Of course the movie is full of explosions and special effects but it also has a plot which I feel is sadly missing from a lot of these big budget versions.

marvel comics green goliath returns to the cinema screen for another go. is there anyone reading this who has never heard of the character? if so: doctor bruce banner used an experimental ray treatment on himself that as a result turns him into a huge strong rampaging monster every time he gets rather angry. hunted by army general ross, who just happens to want the ray treatment so he can create hulk style soldiers to use as weapons, banner is on the run. ross is also the father of his girlfriend betty.

there was a hulk movie in 2003 that tried to be both comic book action movie and a look at the issues of a man with such intense anger. Directed by ang lee and starring eric bana, it made a lot of money but it rather divided audience opinion. some liked the psychological take but many wanted more action.

marvel comics, who publish the hulk in comic book form, were among the latter. now that they have their own film studio set up they can dow what they like movie wise with their characters, and they wanted another go at the hulk to produce a more exciting movie. this is their attempt.

nigh on all the characters from the first film return, although they're all played by different actors. and whilst this does follow on from that film, it is also a fresh take, and you can watch it if you haven't seen that one without getting confused. it gets through the origin of the character in a quick sequence during the credits. sometimes I wish all superhero films would do that.

this movie tells of banner evading ross whilst trying to find a cure for his condition. at the same time a soldier called emil blonsky, who likes a fight and wants to do it for as long as he can is facing the fact that he's not getting any younger.

As much as I liked Ang Lee's original Hulk movie, especially his getting rid of the annoying Glen Talbot, the story as a whole lacked consistency and I hated the split-screen images.
That can certainly not be said of Louis Leterrier's superb movie which successfully manages to avoid anything other than a brief acknowledgment of the 2003 movie with mention of the 5 year time-gap. He and writer Zak Penn have created an action-packed and well-thought out story that also manages to pay homage to the original TV series as well as to the rich historical goldmine of the Marvel archives.
Edward Norton and Tim Roth are both well cast, Roth's character is an interesting amalgam of 2 great Marvel ideas, the super-soldier serum as well as the Gamma radiation. The first battle between the Hulk and the souped-up Emil Blonsky is a great appetiser for the real main course.
The Hulk and Abomination themselves are great CGI creations, the Hulk himself is what I was personally hoping for, a combination of raw power as well as a child-like innocence and the remnants of Banner's personality lying just below the surface. The Abomination is a complete re-imagining of the character's appearance and it works a treat. The set-piece battle is well worth the money and we get the immortal phrase "Hulk Smash" thrown in. The addition of Samuel Sterns and his contamination with Banner's blood is a nod to what we hope to expect from the next Hulk movie as Hulk's arch nemesis is now lying in wait.
One of the best, and certainly the most moving scene, involves Liv Tyler's Betty Ross and The Hulk sat atop a rocky outcrop during a storm, a scene which the well-stacked extras disc explores in comic form.
