Movie Reviews

The Incredible Hulk Returns is a great TV movie!
N. Kok | USA | 06/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Incredible Hulk Returns is a great TV movie! This Incredible Hulk TV movie was released in 1988. The TV movie aired on NBC back in the late 1980s. You still have the original cast from the TV series, Bill Bixby, Lou Ferrigno, and Jack Colvin. This particular movie David Banner had not transformed into the Hulk in two years and he meets up with an old friend Donald BLake, his character has spiritual connection with Thor. Hulk and Thor actually meet in ths TV movie which makes it worth waiting for! The other Incredible Hulk Movie is the Trial of the Incredible Hulk (1989)! This is second Incredible Hulk TV movie that aired on NBC in 1989. after David Banner meets Lawyer Matt Murdock played by Rex Smith. Matt Murdok is actually DareDevil, the blind Superhero from the Marvel comics universe. This is interpredation of DaveDevil pretty good. Rex Smith does a better job playing the Matt Murdock/DareDevil then Ben Affeck did in DareDevil 2003 movie!! Some how David Banner is accused of a crime he did not commit and DareDevil thinks the Wilson Fisk, aka KingsPin is responsible. Both Incredibl Hulk TV movies are great as well as the special features. There is an Interviews with Stan Lee and Lou Ferrigno. There also a slide show presentation from the TV movies courtsey of Lou Ferrigno! A+ 4 stars"
The Incredible Hulk in An Incredible DVD Deal

"An incredibly affordable 2 disc set with great extras highlights two TV movie adventures of the Incredible Hulk.

Bill Bixby & Lou Ferrigno's hit TV series set a milestone for comic book characters. Before that, arguably the only superhero who had a hit was Batman & Superman in the movies. TV movies and TV shows of everyone from Spiderman to Captain America to Dr. Strange had all either failed outright or fizzled quickly. With Kenneth Johnson's drama of the Hulk, the creator turned Stan Lee's green pulp hero into something even grandmothers could love - and mine LOVED the Hulk TV series.

Purists might object to the way the two guest star superheroes are treated and portrayed here. I have no problems with either. Both Eric Kramer (Thor) and Rex Smith (Daredevil) manage their respective roles nicely and have pure fun all the while - especially Kramer who turned an almost stiff, stodgy comic book Thor into a CA beefcake surfer dude with a love of mead and bar brawls. Rex Smith turns in a three dimensional performance and honestly I like his portrayal of Daredevil much more than Ben Affleck's big screen turn. Bill Bixby realizes his tortured Jeckyl & Hyde David Banner character as poignantly as he did in the TV series and the production values for both flicks are top notch all around.

Comic fans must make concessions when their beloved heroes play up on the big or small screen. When film director Bryan Singer toned down the X-Men's costumes for the theatrical film, many a true believer cried. However when they saw the film, Singer was off the hook. These TV movies are NOT the comics we grew up on and so much the better because they've become unique interpretations of them for us to enjoy alongside the classic comics, cartoons or the video games which will be created for generations to come.

Anchor Bay has outdone themselves with excellent extras, packaging that evokes a comic book and even a booklet that at first glance makes you believe you're holding a collectible comic. Fantastic price & fantastic set - thanks Anchor Bay!

"'The Incredible Hulk TV series was dumped during the 5 season having only 7 episodes and leaving a big void for a finale of the show. These two TV movies are pretty fun and the effects seem to be a little bit better than the series.

The first film 'The Return Of The Incredible Hulk is the better of the two films and features another of Marvel Comic's biggest heroes The Mighty Thor. Although Thor is unfortunately even more loosely based than the Hulk, the Norse God of Thunder is a hoot in this fun if a little too long film.

The Mighty Thor is reduced to nothing more than a beer guzzling barbarian with a zest for battle and Tom Foolery. The Hulk looks pretty mean in this film and is an improvement over the series, but the film is nothing more than another installment in the quest for a cure for Dr Banner.

The second film is pretty tedious, but it does include another Marvel icon Daredevil! Even though Daredevil is a far cry from his comic counter part, the character is done better than the God of Thunder in the previous film.

Both films look pretty good, but there are no extras included on this one disc version. I would suggest you buy the 2 disc version for these films as it includes some very cool extras.

Hulk Smash!"
Bring Back the Series!

"I haven't actually watched these movies since they were on t.v., but I remember enough to wonder two things.

1. Why didn't they bring out all three movies in one boxset? (There was 'Death of the Incredible Hulk' as well) and

2. Where's the original series?

I mean, I *love* the Incredible Hulk. Bill Bixby does a fabulous job as the tortured David Banner. Everytime I watch the scene where Elana caresses the Hulk's cheek and says, "My poor David. I have loved you for so very long..." it brings tears to my eyes. Lou Ferrigno is the exception to the rule that musclemen can't act.

I've only got the pilot on DVD and I want more. Bring back the series! Bring back the haunting title music that almost makes your cry in of itself, and the angst and drama and action.

Not to mention, I was a kid in the eighties and I have a fondness for those wonderful eighties t.v. shows. I own Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, The A-Team and Magnum P.I. I would buy Incredible Hulk in a flash if they came out. Its one of the better shows to come out of the eighties.

Come on, release it on DVD!!"
