Well, we all know the story – which has been brought to the, well… little screen. This is a new Hulk classic – a tale that will be remembered and talked about in the same breath as the origin, Mr. Fixit and the Merged Hulk – as well as Jarella’s World and Future Imperfect. They did change a few things from the original epic – I mean, they had to… one of the biggest omissions from the story is the Silver Savage. Replaced by a worthy Beta Ray Bill – although, it would have been much nicer to see the Surfer – BRB and the Hulk’s brawl was both brutal and bad ass! BRB was left practically broken in the end. But instead he used his power to free the rest of the slaves.
Hulk and Caiera’s fight was also one of the best parts of the movie – the first big blow from Caiera knocks off all of the Hulk’s armor. Some of the most important parts of the storyline are still there – the initial gladiator scenes, the spikes, and Caiera’s realization of the Red King’s betrayal… all in all this is a movie for the ages!
They also change the Red Kings death – although – the movie’s was way better! One of the biggest changes, which I thinks works better for the movie, is that they end things on a happy moment – the moment before one of the saddest of Hulk’s history. The moment before he went back to Earth and Loeb took over the writing. 🙂 – Sorry, couldn’t resist! Anyways, like I was saying, they end Planet Hulk on a happy note. This leaves thing open to make a sequel – and hopefully this is popular enough to make one… which would be WWH!
Also, they released the Hulk vs. movies with a new slip cover – which I was able to pick up without having to buy the whole movie again – but it’s pretty sweet!
