Review: This movie at first glance I thought was a continuation of the first Hulk movie in 2003; …. Well it kind of is and then it isn’t. This movie instead shows a flash back to how the Hulk was born, but this one is saying that it was a voluntary experiment gone wrong … WTF to that. But they return to present and Dr. Banner is now in some latin America country, searching for a way to get rid of the “Hulk” so that he could return home; which is where it picks up from the old Hulk movie. Compared to the previous movie, special effects wise, I would have to say they’re the same. Now this one does have a lot more explosions, and if you thought Hulk was crazy in the first, he is insane in this one. Now there is a whole Hulk vs. “The abomination” smack down match, which I have to say was a nice touch. Of course Hulk wins, but that victory is short live because he is again on the run. All in all would have preferred if they had stuck with the old movie’s story line, but it gets a passing grade.
