MCU Review 2: The Incredible Hulk (2008)

I will keep this one short because there isn’t much to discuss from this disappointing film.

This was the only MCU movie that never ever felt like an MCU movie at all. So boring and dumb. After Iron Man set the bar high, I was really expecting something similar from this, but instead got a very terribly written and presented film.

The fight scenes have good moments but could’ve been better if they lasted a little longer. The plot is not so good. Bruce Banner’s goal to find a cure versus the army’s desire to turn him into a weapon has this movie turn into one large chase culminating into a fight with a monster who is easily forgettable. Edward Norton was good in this movie but everyone else fell so flat. It’s like they were all acting for the first time. Although, I think Ed’s version of the hulk looks more cool or comic accurate than Mark’s. 

Overall, The Incredible Hulk is not entirely a terrible movie. It wasn’t a good film also. In comparison with other MCU films, it was well below par and not memorable at all.
