This article is part two of an ongoing feature on my blog, “The Road to the Avengers“, which hopes to convey my thoughts on the current films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, culminating on my thoughts of The Avengers when it is released on Friday, May 4th.
The Incredible Hulk takes the brunt of the critical hate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The majority of the complaints boil down to “all action, no story”, but I respectfully disagree. But what makes me appreciate the film so much more than the critics out there? Louis Leterrier’s film does ramp up the action compared to Ang Lee’s more introspective origin story but I find it hard to say that the film has no story. Before I really delve into the critical perception of the film, I’ll talk about my thoughts.
