The Incredible Hulk

Also an enjoyable superhero movie, though not as good as Iron Man. Far, far, better than the most previous rendition of The Hulk, however. Far better.

However, if I have any Brazil scholars reading this blog, you may be interested to know that a favela in Rio makes an extended appearance. Indeed, the wisdom of the ancients, long the province of the far east (see: Batman Begins, others), appears to now be found in Brazil. A surprising innovation.


I enjoyed it, anyhow. Reviews have been mixed, but I didn’t see why. As enjoyable as The Hulk, and less familiar.

Looking for a good action rental?

Should you desire a fun, violent, action movie, consider Shoot ‘Em Up, with Clive Owen. Highly entertaining. Rather gory.
