µShowdown: Hulk (2003) versus The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Bruce Banner, a genetics researcher with a tragic past, suffers an accident that causes him to transform into a raging green monster when he gets angry.
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Fugitive Dr. Bruce Banner must utilize the genetic accident that transforms him into a giant, rampaging hulk to stop a former soldier that purposely becomes an even more dangerous version.
While — on first viewing — I thought Ang Lee's Hulk could have been thirty or forty minutes shorter, it grew on me after multiple viewings and ultimately blows Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk out of the water.
Relatable characterisation, more engaging plot, solid cast and incredible editing all contribute to the superiority of Ang Lee's Hulk over its more recent successor.
In truth, I was bored while watching the newest addition to the franchise, and hope they can get their act together for the inevitable third attempt.
