Audience Reviews for The Trial of the Incredible Hulk

This is the second in the series of TV movies based on the Incredible Hulk TV show. I really liked it, it's a bit silly at times, but overall the story and actors are really good, and it's exciting too. If you liked the show, you should see this.

One of this Incredible Hulk TV movies is average, but I'm such a fan of the Marvel characters as well as the big green hero terrified me when I was a kid on the TV series. And it was quite good to catch the first live-action look at Daredevil (in the black costume - didn't make sense to me) and his interactions with David Banner.
Bill Bixby gives a decent performance as the down-trodden, world-weary David Banner, a man persecuted for his alter-ego yet still determined to do the right thing. Rex Smith also delivers in his role as Matt Murdock, giving those not familiar with the character a glimpse of what he could do, and John Rhys Davies excels as always as the Kingpin.

Great made for TV movie. If you like the show and respect the fact this was 1989 then the nostalgia factor is all you need. Rex Smith makes a brilliant Murdoch and Daredevil even if his costume is a tad naff. Unfortunately it does focus attention away from the main man. Bixby is wonderful as ever though the film has a crash landing by having no Hulk-Out scene at the end. These TV movies were mainly developed to encourage spin-off shows for other characters. On that note it failed but as entertaining classic television it's a damn success.
