the incredible hulk

with much more action and a love story that i found colder than the helpless longing in the ang lee prequel, this turned out to be a fairly enjoyable ride through a colour-by-numbers superhero film. the brazil locations were spectacular and the special effects great- i loved the entry of the hulk in the shadows of a cold drink bottling plant; the action sequence on a virginia college campus were also fabulous. but a hulk story is so much more than the sum of these testosterone saturated parts. because at the end of each story the hulk is left alone condemned to being an outsider forever. and the ang lee film understood him better.
