Gamma Radiation is the new viagra!!

You wouldnt like me when Im... Hungry??

Saw the movie on Tuesday at a screening

Fore I start Imma give that spoilers warning even though we all know what happens..

I will say this first..  Any Head on here that hits the comic store or even knows anything about the HULK other then that last piece of shit movie from Ang Lee MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!!  I am not talking about hitting a torrent, or the dude outside the chicken spot for the DVD.. Support this shyt because Comic Heads this is the movie that MARVEL said “we are sorry lets do it right now”

The first 1/3 of the movie plays like an homage to the classic TV series (which isn’t a bad thing), and Edward Norton does his best to channel Bill Bixby. Norton’s Bruce Banner is the Banner that has to be now.. even with the Hulk within you can sense and understand the character’s loneliness and desperation to find a cure.

First rule of Hulk Club... U dont talk about Hulks Club...

Some guys at the end were complaining that this movie is “dumbed down,” I think if you look a little beneath the surface, especially during these early moments you will be surprised how spot-on some of the Banner characterization is, and you have to remember that this still has to appeal to the masses.

After the first act, Banner returns to the U.S. to look for a cure, and to get entangled with the Ross family. William Hurt is fine as the general with a “Military first” mindset, not that I dont want my kid dating a Nerd bullshyt like the first one.  Liv Tyler is not Jennifer Connelly and thats a good thing because I keep seeing her being chased by Gamma Poddles. Still, once the movie and the action shift back to the states it moves into full gear with more screen time with The Hulk including a huge battle with the military on a college campus, and some “beauty and the beast” moments.

Basically, the general tries to subdue and capture Hulk who manages to escape time after time, but Marvel uses being smart does what they do best and also takes the opportunity to add the Super Solder Serum into the mix (can you say Captain America)   Sadly the general uses an early verison on his new bad ass vetern solder, played by Tim Roth.  On a side note its clear that Ed Norton hit the gym a lil before filming as he has some type of cut look to him, Roth looks like my grandfather and even after taking the serum didnt change yet he is outrunning trucks and going hand to hand with the hulk?!?

not even maybe even a bowflex?  and have you ever heard of a tan???

Of course, Roth becomes totally insane on the serum and eventually becomes Abomination in an effort to be able to hang with Big Green (check out the Origin of THE LEADER)setting up a final monster smash battle in the middle of Harlem that to be honest is worth the price of admission..  (comic heads get one last hulk gem)

I cant believe this was Billary\'s campaign headquarters!!

All through the movie are some great cameos and stan lee of course makes himself seen. Yes, it is a summer popcorn movie,designed to make it clear that Marvel can do their movies much better then sony or some fucking studio that wants to make every story a love story or some oscar winning drama shyt…

And yes, Robert Downey Jr. appears during the film as Tony Stark (his appearance generated the biggest cheer of the movie at the screening I attended) and if you’re a Marvel Comics fan, what he says will put you through the roof on the coolness meter. Marvel is most definitely weaving a thread through their superhero movies that will end up at Avengers Mansion.
