The Incredible Hulk (2008)
The next Avengers movie to be released was The Incredible Hulk starring Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, and William Hurt.
This one is a partial sequel to the first Hulk movie back in 2003 with the setup origin story being in the credits, which is really nice. The rest of it basically follows Bruce Banner (Norton) trying to get back to the U.S. to get the data he needs to have Mr. Blue help him figure out a cure. Meanwhile, Emil Blonsky (Roth) is tasked by General Ross (Hurt) and wants to learn more about the Hulk's powers.
I loved this movie much more than the original one. The Hulk (2003) wasn't all that bad but the flow of this one and with the plot sticking a little closer to the comics with the introduction of the Abomination. The Hulk himself looked pretty good. There were moments when you could tell he was just graphics but it didn't hurt the flow of the movie too bad.
The story was pretty good. It was just a typical movie and had some exciting scenes in it. The chemisty between all of the characters were very good for this movie. The Incredible Hulk had more major characters, being a contrast from Iron Man, and this was very well done, notably the interactions of Betty Ross (Tyler) and Banner and between Ross and Blonsky.
This movie was a nice combination with Iron Man being released just a month after. It was one of my less favorites from the series of Avenger movies but still great nonetheless.
Tomorrow for Avenger's Week is Iron Man 2!
