So kill me, I like The Incredible Hulk, which I finally got around to seeing yesterday. This is the Hulk movie they should’ve made five years ago instead of that dull film about daddy issues starring Eric Bana. I’ll admit, this new release isn’t the blockbuster Iron Man is, but it is entertaining and crammed with good moments and very good performances. The CGI is good, really at its best in the quiet Hulk scenes (and there are a couple). But most important, unlike its 2003 predecessor, The Incredible Hulk has a PLOT. Stuff happens, a lotta stuff happens, and when you get to the end of the film, you really wanna know what happens next, which is good, because word has it that Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America are destined for an Avengers movie down the road. And that might be a great thing.

Anyway, if you liked Iron Man and are curious just where Marvel Studios is heading with their movies, check out The Incredible Hulk. It makes for a fun afternoon. And hey, the bad guys are, of course, the military and the government it serves. You gotta love that.

Final note: One disappointment for me was that there were signs of SHIELD in the movie but nary a glimpse of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Ah well…
