This is was a well written/acted Savage Hulk. It was great seeing him have this many lines...BUT this is The Hulk that should have been this way from the beginning. He should have progressed to a Gravage Hulk over the past 2 yrs.
The way this Hulk fights in the arena is wrong given his huge reach/length advantage. Thor really dominated the fight and I cant help but think a Gravage version would have been more competitive. Even before Thor taps into his godhood mode he was wrecking him when he wanted to.
Btw, this film has an internal logic flaw in Thor's power level. He's repeatedly taken down and/or out by an uber taser even when he's eminating lightning outta his body he's dropped before his likely 3rd shot ends Hulk.
I am now fearing the hurting/beating Thanos is bout to lay down on this Hulk in Avengers:IW. Maybe by the 4th flick Hulk can have his version of Worldbreaker mode.
Seeing Thor get Korg/Miek friendships too is another downer. I dunno... feel bad Hulk won't ever get a proper Planet Hulk movie and that this wasted his best comics story ever. Was a great Thor movie tho.
Box Office Mojo said this film made 122 million in its opening weekend and that is Outstanding. The Hulk talking might have been a nice help to get increased interest. I will be seeing it soon.
