With the exception of one particular scene in 2012’s Avengers, the Hulk has become a very comic-book-y force of nature; sporting a brighter green skin tone and some humorous character traits. But here, in Louis Leterrier’s Incredible Hulk, we see a different side to the jade giant; a horror aspect to Bruce Banner’s monstrous alter-ego that works particularly well.
After experimenting on himself with an untested variant of the super-soldier serum, Bruce Banner goes on the run from the United States military, who seek to use his monstrous new power as a weapon. When they finally begin to catch up with Banner, assembling a new task force to bring him in and confronting him in Brazil, Bruce is forced to confront his past; returning to the U.S.A. and his former love Betty, in search of a cure.
