Mild-mannered scientist Bruce Banner has been traveling the globe in search of the antidote that will allow him to break free from his primal alter ego, but both the warmongers who long to exploit him for their own gain and a horrific creature known as The Abomination are determined to stop him from achieving his noble goal in Transporter 2 director Louis Leterrier's take on the classic Marvel Comics superhero tale.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The climax is a bit of a yawn, but most of what precedes it is vigorous and sharp."
‑ Tom Charity,
"There's not an excess of exposition, and the pricey CGI Hulk at his disposal is more angrily expressive than the mute one employed by Lee."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"It's disposable fun, best summed up by Banner himself when asked how he feels during his transformation: "There's just too much noise... it's difficult to remember anything at all.""
‑ Ali Gray,
"An impressive blockbuster that does exactly what it says."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"What's with the pants? How is it that when a guy with a 28-inch waist blows up to the size of a Cadillac Escalade, the pants remain intact?"
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"A more satisfactory adaptation of the spirit of Stan Lee's Marvel character."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"Rather than go to the trouble of crafting a dramatically satisfying conclusion, The Incredible Hulk" blows the audience off and takes the air out of its previous solid work by ending with what is essentially a shameless trailer for the next Marvel movie."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A very standard summer actioner that delivers reasonably well, if straight down the middle, on audience expectations."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Bloodier action than other comic book adventures."
‑ James Rocchi, Common Sense Media
"About halfway through The Incredible Hulk, Ed Norton (Bruce Banner) gets his hair cut. Hair is not the only thing that winds up on the cutting room floor."
‑ Tony Macklin, Fayetteville Free Weekly
"It won't change your life but you'll walk away smiling."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"In close-up the Hulk is more cartoonish than scary, but when he's ripping armed vehicles to shreds? Kewl."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"Norton makes for a wiry, curious Bruce Banner. But you can tell from the film's tedium-inducing smackdowns that a different philosophy prevailed: the artificial Zen of video-game playing."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out Chicago
"Hulk not smash. Hulk building block. Hulk make franchise."
‑ , Film4
"What Hulk smash most? Hulk smash all hope of interesting time in cinema."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
