Scientist Bruce Banner has been living in the shadows, scouring the earth for an antidote. Warmongers dream of abusing his powers and won't leave Bruce alone. He suffers from his constant need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross, and Bruce knows that he must return to civilization. The brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression called The Abomination whose powers match that of the Hulk. Now, a fight of epic proportions ensues as Bruce must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction.
DVD, region 1, anamorphic widescreen (2.35:1) presentation; Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo., dual-layer.
You can't really blame the actors: the material just isn't all that good. And you can only blame the writers and director a little bit: the character itself is just a problem. Some Jason Bourne-style exposition at the beginning just isn't able to pull together any sympathy we may have for Banner with the CGI green monster who has effectively no feelings (emotional or physical). Joss Whedon (who's directing The Avengers) talked a bit about the problem recently and what he hoped to do about it: "A Hulk who not only feels flesh and blood, but is clearly an extension of Banner himself and not just a CGI thing that roars." You can't help but feel that Whedon is referring specifically to this outing, where The Hulk is very definitely 'a CGI thing that roars.'
Honestly, the story is so cut and dry, I doubt there'll be anything in the Avengers that'll make you feel left out if you skip this one. And I think you should.
