I rarely make it to a theater for a movie. The Dark Knight was an exception since I knew it was going to be amazing and it still far topped my expectations.
The Incredible Hulk is going to be playing at the local cheap theater ($5 tickets) and I am wondering whether it is worth my time.
I like super hero movies but I much prefer some thoughtfulness in the plot; something that will have me thinking during and after the movie. This is especially true if I am going to spend money to go see a movie and probably buy some concessions (at least some water), rather than wait for cable or Netflix which would be cheaper.
I really liked The Dark Knight (4.5/5 stars) but felt Iron Man was kind of meh (3.0/5, fun but not very thoughtful, also had too many goofy moments and not enough character development).
I probably will make time to go spend $10-20 plus gas to see The Dark Knight again. Iron Man is more something I would watch on cable when I am bored.
Where does The Incredible Hulk fall in that spectrum?
“oh man…should I watch Incredible Hulk or watch Sex and the City for the third time…I really do enjoy Cosmos”
Stop being gay and watch Incredible Hulk. I should tribunal you for hesitating to see the Hulk.
Ironman = cool as shit
They kept playing to the camera in Iron Man. Lame one-liners, and those gags while he was building the prototype suits. I don’t like that sort of thing. It took away from the otherwise serious tone that the movie seemed to be going for.
Also I did not feel the characters were well developed and I never felt much attachment to any of them other than Pepper Potts. The actors were all just kind of there, playing the roles, not really making me feel they WERE the characters or that the characters had much real chemistry together.
Also, unlike The Dark Knight (and to a lesser extent The Incredible Hulk), there was no thought provoking deeper meanings to the movie that I could see. It was just a movie about a guy that winds up fighting crime.
Yes there is some “party boy turns hero” thing going on, but it did not really offer anything more than lip service to that aspect of the story. Also, that in and of itself is not terribly interesting in the same way that The Dark Knight was interesting on a psychological level.
