    'The Incredible Hulk' Director Wanted To Make Amends For Ang Lee's 'Hulk'

    'The Incredible Hulk' Director Wanted To Make Amends For Ang Lee's 'Hulk' - Starpulse Entertainment News Blog

    Director Louis Leterrier made The Incredible Hulk just five years after the comic book character last hit the big screen - because he was "disappointed' with Ang Lee's effort.
    Bruce Banner and his alter ego are back, with Edward Norton in the lead role, alongside Liv Tyler as Betty Ross - following in the footsteps of Eric Bana and Jennifer Connelly who took on the roles in the 2003 big screen adaptation.
    Leterrier claims his film is not a remake or a sequel - but more of a revisiting. And although the filmmaker claims he was a fan of Lee's 2003 effort, he felt he could capture the Marvel Comics creation better.
    He says, "Technically, my film is not a sequel. But at the same time I didn't want to insult people who saw the first movie because I'm a fan of it myself. There were so many great ideas in it, but as a Hulk fan I was disappointed. It wasn't the Hulk movie I wanted to see."

    Maybe I just always liked the wrong super heroes, but this year has not been for me as far as hero movies go. The Hulk and Iron man are the two of the biggest yawns I could have come up with.

    The VS movies should be good. I can't see a Venom vs Wolverine or Hulk or something being bad, no plot but still.

    The Ang Lee was was horrible.

    With Ed Norton AND Liv Tyler, I'm willing to give this one a shot. But I agree, the cg hulk looks pretty fake. They should really just bring back Lou Ferrigno.

    I didnt mind the first Hulk movie. I dont know what all the bad press about it is all about At times it was a bit soap opera-ish, but thats about it. I thought that was to keep the attract the female movie goers.

    I didn't see it. I was tempted to though. I just never liked the character though, or the Hulk for that matter. Admittedly, the Iron Man movie looks cool and I've heard great things about it from friends, and tit and I have considered seeing it eventually

    I mean, I liked Spiderman and Venom, and Ghost Rider, and their movies were crap. So maybe if I watch a movie about characters I don't like the movie'll be good

    Quotes from Rotten Tomato

    http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_incredible_hulk/



    The ending battle between The Hulk and Abomination is one of the most spectacular and exciting things I've ever seen on screen. If the downtown Los Angeles robot battles of Transformers impressed you, this puts those to shame.
    It’s the crappy summer blockbuster Marvelites probably deserve.
    Certainly a more convincing proposition than the tank-shotputting hot air balloon of Lee's movie.
    At times on par with the first Spider-Man, some of the original movie's problems are replaced by new ones, but none that completely ruin the enjoyment every time the Hulk comes out to 'SMASH!!!'

    The Hulk looks pretty damn good and the final fight will make diehard fans and new fans satisfied.
