Synopsis


The Trial of the Incredible Hulk
Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno return to their mutual TV role in The Trial of the Incredible Hulk. Bixby is Dr. David Banner, who, after being pelted by gamma rays, occasionally turns into the green, gruesome, uncontrollable Hulk (Lou Ferrigno). This time, Banner/Hulk cross swords with an evil zillionaire gangster (John Rhys-Davies). Joining in the good clean chaos is another Marvel Comics hero, the visually challenged Daredevil (Rex Smith). Made for television, Trial of the Incredible Hulk debuted May 7, 1989. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Incredible Hulk Returns
Bill Bixby stars as physicist Dr. David Banner, the mild-mannered alter ego of the raging green mutant The Hulk (Lou Ferrigno), in this made-for-TV film based on the 1978 series (which was inspired by the Marvel Comics characters). In this outing, Dr. Banner teams with Thor, the Norse god of thunder. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

    Goofy fun "Returns" but don't stay for the "Trial"

    My rating is for, "The Incredible Hulk Returns", and I'm considering, "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk", as part of the bonus features. "Trial" just didn't seem as interesting to me. The story was adequate, (for a Hulk show), but it dragged quite a bit. OK, I'll also `fess-up that Rex Smith's portrayal of Matt Murdock/Daredevil grated on my nerves too. I'd throw it a bone of 3 stars as bonus curiosity material only. "The Incredible Hulk Returns", is where the fun lies in this two-disc set. We have the usual drama of the David Banner character but with the relief of a boisterous Thor!!! I like Bill Bixby's acting but it seemed unusually depressing in these movies. Oh, he's good but he's almost too good for the B-movie material he's confined to on these productions. It's kind of like having a new Rolls Royce on a beat-up used car lot. It looks good on its own but it doesn't fit the environment it's residing in. Eric Allan Kramer's portrayal of Thor, in "Returns", really helps add some needed levity to the story. He wants to lock-it-up with Hulk and is a wreckless bar brawler to boot. This humor is sorely lacking in "Trial" which is just a plain downer. Just on the merits of, "The Incredible Hulk Returns", I give the set 4 stars. Again, treat everything else beyond this particular movie as filler. After saying that, I would add that the bonus material is generous and a nice addition. What more can you ask for? Extended features on Stan Lee and Lou Ferrigno! It would have been sweet to have a little homage to Bixby, but you can't have everything. Enjoy it for what it is - goofy super-hero frolicking.
