I watched the Hulk Vs joint at my man Khalid's crib. For some reason, I wasn't all that interested in watching it when it came out last year (despite all the fanfare), but blessed with a few hours to burn yesterday, I decided to give the jolly green giant a spin, once Khalid mentioned that he had this on tap...
Hulk Vs is actually two separate animated movies, about 35-40 minutes each, pitting the Hulk against the thunder god Thor and the mutant Wolverine. The flimsy but earnest circumstances that set up the heroes' conflict with the Hulk in both stories reminded me of the episodic one-off stories that got me hooked on comics as a child. They are not ambitious or pretentious. If you need to know more about the characters than what can be said in a few sentences, this movie will only frustrate you.
a great job of acknowledging Wolverine's history including a nod to Herb Trimpe's original yellow and blue uniform and Barry Windsor-Smith's classic Weapon X story. There were great cartoon versions of Sabertooth, Deadpool, Lady Deathstrike and Omega Red... and yeah, Hulk was in it, too.
I was pleasantly surprised with how much they were able to fit comfortably into the Wolverine story. The Thor story tried to do the same thing but was a lot more awkward. I thought both stories had a great sense of history without being bogged down by it. A nice blend of silver age writing style and modern age animation and action (rated pg-13 for violence, including Wolverine drawing blood repeatedly). You can read more of my reviews on Amazon.
