Review: Another success in the comic-book-to-movie adaptations! In the wake of the hugely successful Iron Man movie, this one had a lot to live up to. It didn’t surpass Iron Man, but it definitely was right on up there. The story doesn’t really take long to pick up, and there’s quite a bit of action throughout. The visuals were pretty great looking. The fight scenes between the two “hulkish” creatures were okay. It’s kind of the same thing I thought after seeing Transformers. They were good, but it was too close and it was dark during the scene, so there wasn’t a whole lot to be seen. On a good note, I was quite a fan of all the cameos and little nuances that were slyly slipped in there.

Overall, I would say it’s adding quality to the somewhat dismal genre of comic-book adaptations. I’m looking forward to see where these are going (as there are a few left before “the big one”).
