The Incredible Hulk is not so Incredible

My boyfriend warned me about this movie. He didn't like the first so what was going to be different about the second? Well, I really liked Liv Tyler in Armageddon and Lord of the Rings so I wanted to see what she would be like in this movie. Well, I don't know if it was the script that was bad or the acting but the whole movie was excruciating to watch.

Why the heck would they cast Eduard Norton as the Hulk? Sure, Bruce Banner is supposed to be a wimpy scientist but come on, Norton seemed beyond wimpy. At least Eric Bana in the first installment was able to pull off a nerdy but masculine scientist. I mean, it looked like Liv Tyler could even kick Norton's a** in the movie.

Plus I thought the movie was supposed to be a continuation of the first? It seemed a whole new storyline that I really wasn't able to follow. With Iron Man, even though I wasn't familiar with the story of Tony Starks I was at least entertained.

Anyways, I'm just posting this up in case there's a third installment of the movie, I would be reminded not to make the same mistake of watching it again.
