Synopsis (by MOster)
With the Hulk origin story relegated to flashbacks in the opening credits, the movie follows Bruce Banner as he is discovered hiding in South America, chased back to ex-flame Liv Tyler, and pursued by William Hurt and neo-Hulk Tim Roth.
remember superman 2, with the whole "kneel before general zod" thing? yeah, if you do, there is no need to watch this movie because, with the exception of a few details it's the exact same plot . superman 2 did a better job too, with their 80's special effects capabilities. i like edward norton too. bad choice mr. norton. well, at least it wasn't as big of a train wreck as the fantastic four movies. maybe they rehashed the superman 2 plot because it's a dc comic, and therefore doesn't exist in the marvel universe?
This really didn't do much to keep my interest and I don't really have anything to say about it. Most of the performances were fine, and the technical stuff was fine as well. But I don't think there was anything new in the entire two hours. Squandering the origin was a mistake in my opinion as that's the only part with any potential for variation. Even taking that into account, the story could have been more interesting. For example there could have been a love triangle between Tim Roth and Edward Norton and Liv Tyler. But there wasn't. The movie followed one thread through no entanglements to an easily-predictable "climactic" battle and ending. Even the lead-in for potential sequels (cameo by Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark) was rote.
