Summary

Scientist Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) desperately seeks a cure for the gamma radiation that turns him into The Hulk. Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) and him are forced to hide from his foe, General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt) so that they can find this cure.

Is The Plot Interesting?

The Hulk’s story has to be one of the more interesting superhero stories and although this doesn’t cover his beginnings, it relates to it. You see the lengths Bruce Banner is willing to go to find a cure.

Is The Acting Good?

Edward Norton isn’t exactly like how I imagined Bruce Branner but he isn’t far off. He plays him well and portrays the anger and guilt that Bruce Banner feels perfectly. The rest of the cast also do a good job.

Is The Directing Good?

The directing style feels very different to some of Louis Leterrier’s other films like Now You See Me. It has more of a tense feel to it but in a good way; it suits the tone of the movie really well.

Is The Cinematography Good?

At certain points during the movie I did see some good cinematography, it made the movie more powerful and effective, but this wasn’t very often. If this had been more of a regular occurrence it would have made it better.

Is It Worth Watching?

If you love Marvel or Bruce Banner then you’re obviously going to enjoy the movie more than those who don’t but this Marvel movie is still just as entertaining as any other I’ve seen.
