So what's the plot? Well, there's something that should be cleared up first. This movie treats the last film as both cannon and not cannon. You're not going to find a lot of back story here, as the back story is explained in the last Hulk film, but the two are barely connected. The intro credits show the backstory of The Hulk, but not to the same events as Hulk. This is a soft reboot, somethings staying the same, others not. But as for the plot of this film:
|"I swear I'm not just here for foreshadowing"|
|"I'm sitting in the rain"... this was not taken with a camera aimed at my TV... just ridiculously good timing|
Thankfully, this is also 2008, and the movie isn't trying to be a comic book and is actually shot like a movie. There's no Multi cam like in Hulk, no really bad CG, and the characters are actually allowed to act and be the focus of the movie. For one thing, I can hear them, there's no horrible audio problems. Not to mention, I actually believe these actors are these characters, something I struggled to do in Hulk. It comes at the trade off of Post Production lighting balance and a soundtrack that's bland and forgetful, but I'll take what I can get.

From Friday onwards, we'll be sticking to the release schedule of the films, as now we have entered Phase 1. See you Friday for Iron Man.
