I gotta say, its better than the first Hulk film for sure and its certainly not too bad, but its hardly a great film by any means, strongly average for me.
It starts of kinda slow in Brazil and your not too sure whats going on really, things do progress OK building the story, but the first Hulk rage scene is where I noticed he isnt gonna look as good as I thought he may. still I liked what I was seeing. Afew plot holes appear here n there like how does Banner get from Brazil to the US? one minute he's in the jungle next minute he's back in the states somewhere. Anyway, you get the real Hulk on the uni campus sequence, again weird little plot holes like how did the army know he was there? and Banner see's them pretty quickly and comfortably haha. Its here where there's a real battle but to be honest I wasn't impressed by the effects to be honest, very average, and the Hulk also looked pretty average, not much better than Ang Lee's version. The only scene he does look good is the night rain sequence after the battle.
From there it went abit down hill for me, the story is fine with plenty of good homages (including music) but the finale battles with Abomination are pretty basic looking, nothing we haven't seen before and Abomination looks pretty crap as well frankly. The action moves so fast at the end you can't really keep pace with the blows, its all very overblown but I kinda expected that.thats the problem with huge characters like Hulk, Abomination, Thing etc...they are so fast, frantic, big n powerful, for them to move and fight realistically they have to appear very fast and fluid, obviously double or triple the times of a regular person, but thats makes it hard to view really. Its all a big flash, bang, blurr on the screen, tricky to do I know.
Its an OK film but not great, kinda just above average maybe. The cast are very good and save the film really, especially Norton, Roth and Hurt, they do bring some realism to the film which helps allot, another annoying Stan Lee cameo I'm afraid hmmm.
The ending is pretty open with a massive positive for a certain team movie haha yeah I think its happening now. Its ok but 'Iron Man' is still the best comicbook flick this year.
