Not bad... but not great either
By Jack Anderson on January 1, 2019
 (4/10)

The Incredible Hulk is the second movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following the very fun Iron Man.

EDWARD NORTON... REALLY?
As I stated in the Iron Man review, the casting of the lead actor is crucial, and even more in a superhero movie. Because there is so much backstory. So, who's playing Hulk, you might ask? Edward Norton. Yeah. Fight Club Edward Norton. As much as Robert Downey Jr. was just a perfect match for the eccentric Tony Stark, Norton is not. And the reason is simple. Edward Norton is having a baby face, that is totally incompatible with the monster-like Hulk.

GREAT BEGINNING
Don't get me wrong, the first part of the film is good. Edward Norton is living in the favelas, which is such an iconic location. The first shot from director Kenneth Branagh is really outstanding. The movie starts off as a great spy movie, but unfortunately, this is a Hulk movie and we know we'll have to sit through the usual scenes.

IMMATURE WRITING
And of course, soon enough, we are drawn into the old lover cliché (Liv Tyler), the very boring video game-like scenes, but much worse, we have to sit through scenes with the very bad military. The General is clearly the most annoying character from that film. He's got everything, the attitude, even the moustache.

SFX
Also, for a reason I really don't understand, Hulk is not looking at all like Norton. Not even the haircut, nothing. Therefore, it makes it extremely difficult or even impossible to root for the Banner/Hulk character.
But at least, most of the scenes with CGI are taking place in the dark or at night. Except in the worst part, when Hulk is in a big field and that the military keep shooting at him.

SUMMARY
Not a bad film, but really not a good one either. A clear average. I give it 4 out of 10.
