Marvel Musings #5: The Incredible Hulk

Marvel movies. Chronological order. Come play with me!

hulk 1The Incredible Hulk was released in 2008, and it was something I never thought a Marvel movie could be–dull. My god, what a yawner.

There were a couple of cool moments. At one point, we see a TV showing “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father,” an old sitcom starring Bill Bixby, who later starred in the Incredible Hulk TV series as David Banner. Also, the guard who is so easily distracted by a pizza is played by none other than Lou Ferrigno, who played the Hulk in the TV series. Very nice shout out there.

Beyond that, there’s not a lot to recommend this movie. It couldn’t hold my attention, the plot was muddled, the female character was nothing more than a damsel frequently in distress. Seriously, you could occasionally not run toward danger, or not throw yourself into the middle of a military operation. Because confronting your officer father in front of all his troops, and making him choose between his job and his hysterical daughter? Gosh, who wouldn’t appreciate that?

Could not wait to finish this movie and move on to the next one.
