It’s dreary and terrifying. Seriously, it’s not a happy story. Bruce is not someone you want to be whatsoever. He is beholden to the whims of a terrifying power that destroys his sense of self and paints a giant target on his back. He can barely do good. The good he does is mostly a side effect of self preservation. It’s depressing and the mood isn’t helped by the intense seriousness the situation is portrayed with. Jokes are few and far between and usually tainted with bitterness.

And let me just say, when this movie released, 12-14 year old me was absolutely terrified just by the commercials. The Abomination is a horrifying concept. A man driven mad by a lust for power and addiction to drugs ends up horribly deformed and in a state of what one can only assume is pain and beastly rage. It’s not just me right? That’s a really heavy subject for any movie, let alone a superhero movie. It scared me to the point I could barely stand watching the Hulk transform in the Avengers. Over time I’ve gotten over it, but the Incredible Hulk movie is still really squicky, and I really can’t get through it in one sitting.

But yeah, what do y’all think? Am I wrong? Is the Incredible Hulk your favorite movie for precisely those reasons (or maybe some other ones)? Or do you agree that it’s really bad? Maybe you’re somewhere in the middle?
Why so bananas about it?

i got two chuckles out of it and was otherwise very bored with it as I said in another topic heard someone refer to the movie as "relentlessly mediocre" spoton

I wouldn't say it's bad because of those things. I'd say it's because they tried to hard with those things.

Probably because it's not an MCU movie. It's got almost nothing to do with the MCU other than the post-credits scene.

I know, but the movie's production had absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the MCU.

But Guardians 2 is fun and enjoyable and already has that connection cause of the 1st movie not to mention I think Adam will have a part to play in Endgame.
