Pin It


Eating Crow

The Incredible Hulk was great. Leterrier's great, Norton's great, the story's great, the execution's fantastic. Speaking as someone who does not like the Hulk, this was a treat. More gravitas than Iron Man, of course, pulled off sans teary-eyed anguish of Spider-Man III (though I did enjoy that one, too).

William Hurt once again delivers an incredible (no pun intended...maybe slightly) performance; his own status as Hulk fanboy paid off. He once again gives my favorite performance in a movie, though Tim Blake Nelson certainly gives him a run for his money.

Still, I felt Liv Tyler's Betty Ross had more chemistry with the Hulk than with Bruce Banner. Not a complete let-down, but still disappointing. And I can never take Ty Burrell seriously. I don't know why, I just can't.

Can't wait for the sequel.
