The Incredible Hulk

114 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

The Incredible Hulk has a lot going against it, but thankfully, Edward Norton, who rewrote the script, brings just the right kind of Dr. Jekyll angst to his Bruce Banner, a character that can be too whiny or downright morose with the wrong writer. Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), keeps coming back to Banner even as he fights his temper and begs her for money. Meanwhile, Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) wants more power as he hunts the Hulk. The actors treat their scenes well between set pieces, while director Louis Leterrier easily finds the gorgeousness in action sequences. Tim Blake Nelson is especially promising as a scientist who may be able to cure Banner's illness. The third act has problems—how do you keep your villain from becoming a caricature when he's a monster whose sole motivation seems to be finding another tough guy to fight?—but Hulk is such fun that it can smash through any cliché in its way.
