Default Re: The Official 'I Still Love Ang Lee's Hulk' Thread - Part 1

You do realize that right?

Sure super ficial details might be different, but at the heart of things ... Ang Lee got more right than they did on the 2nd film which was marketed towards the action loving ADD community we now live in.

I don't get your point about TIH taking more liberties than Ang Lee's Hulk. please advise?

As far as the origin in either movie they were far from the original Gamma bomb. As for Banner saving Harper in Hulk, I thought it was cool. However, you see...I know Rick Jones...and Harper no Rick Jones! You realize that...right? Rick plays a greater part into the Hulk mythos, more than just playing into the spirit of Hulk's origin, and both movies sorely missed out with this.

Please explain your last statement, so I can respond.

(Note - I don't think TIH is anymore of the Hulk than Ang's film.)
