YOU’LL LIKE HIM WHEN HE’S ANGRY.
Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) hides from the authorities while looking for an antidote for his condition; eventually he’s exposed and the Hulk faces a new, terrifying enemy. The sequel to Hulk (2003) is more of a straightforward action picture; different from the original but on the same level. The parts have been recast, but that’s not a problem. The addition of Tim Roth is interesting; he also turns into a monster, the Abomination, and his clash with the Hulk in the final showdown is a smashing freak fest. Good visual effects, and Louis Leterrier paces his film well.
