Planet Hulk is the animation of the Planet Hulk Omnibus - Hulk, tricked into a shuttle by the Avengers, is blasted into space but wrecks his navigation module in the process. Veering through an intergalactic portal, he winds up crashing on Planet Sakaar - ruled by the Red King. Hulk is weakened and fitted with an obedience disk and forced to fight in the gladiatorial arena for his life by the Red King and the imperial guard. Hulk wins his freedom with the help of his newfound friends and looks set to topple the Red King as the people of Sakaar believe him to be their prophet. Will the Hulk manage to rule Sakaar?

For fans of the comic; this is a heavily abridged version of the original - missing No Name of the Brood completely and skimping on back story on almost every character. Miek never finds his queen and becomes a king, they're never tasked with clearing the Wildebots. Instead of the Silver Surfer they use Beta-Ray Bill (why?!) etc etc. Most important to note is that this ends before the event that spurs World War Hulk - so has a happy 'ending'.

Discrepancies aside; this is a great Hulk-saga with a genuinely self-propelling story. Hulk's romance is rather underplayed, but it is good to see the big Green as something other than a force of destruction and the animation is fantastic. Marvel Animation & Lionsgate doing another great job.

Watched this today and have to say was not disappointed but not that impressed either. Hard to judge this simply because it only tells part of the story in the Planet Hulk Saga. The part of the story told was good but I have to say I was rather disappointed that there was no hint as to say there is more to the story or that there would even be a part 2.

As for the movie, it is as you would expect, the hulk smashing his way through and there is a lot of chopping and slicing so, definitely screen this before your younger kids watch it. It is entertaining, the fight scenes are well done but predictable, cinematography is not bad, so overall, it is a worthy effort, no doubt people that have read planet hulk comics will not be that impressed, it definitely could have been better. It gets 4stars simply because I am a fun of the Hulk and for over an hour, I was entertained.

Plant Hulk is quite simply a ripping adventure story, well told and well put together. And I for one am delighted! I grew up as very much a Marvel kid rather than a DC kid. So I'm far from displeased that Marvel has finally come up with something that can hold its own against Bruce Timm's DC Animated Universe.

Planet Hulk is not quite as good as Bruce Timm at his absolute best; as seen in the likes of Batman - Mask of the Phantasm and the Project Cadmus story arc in Justice League Unlimited. But it is good, and there are also plenty of things that Bruce Timm has put his name to over the years that aren't up to the standard of Planet Hulk.

I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I won't say much about the plot. There are just two observations I want to make...

First, the single thing I love most about Planet Hulk is that it's not yet another reboot origin story. We see far too many of those as it is. To me, that's just lazy writing. Damn it, we already know who Wonder Woman is and where she comes from! We already know who Spider Man is and where HE comes from! And we already know who... well, you get the point. Planet Hulk assumes we already know who and what The Hulk is and goes from there. Which is just fine with me.

Second, I want to draw attention to something another reviewer has already observed - that Planet Hulk clearly owes much both to Edgar Rice Burroughs' Carter of Mars novels, and Howard E Carter's Conan the Barbarian stories. On both counts I agree. But Planet Hulk is never merely derivative.

This was an okay effort but no where as entertaining (at least for me) as a number of the other Marvel animated movies that have been released thus far (I own all of them). As far as Hulk goes, his presence in the two Ultimate Avengers movies (the first one more), Hulk Vs and even the Avengers of Tomorrow movie were far more enjoyable on all levels (be it the action, dialogue [well lack of - Hulk talks a lot in this] or the general story line). Planet Hulk's story line was actually kinda boring - think Gladiator with Hulk instead of Maximus Decimus Meridius and that's it (note: I loved Gladiator - have it on DVD). Apart from the Avengers cameo appearance at the start, which sets up the story nicely, nothing else really stood out for me. That said I don't mind having it in my collection and at least it gave us something else to watch as my son keeps watching the same movies over and over again. However, on this occasion, I suspect my son won't be undertaking one of his intense repeat viewing sessions with this effort from Marvel.
