The Incredible Hulk (Soundtrack) by Craig Armstrong - Review

The Incuredible Hulk (Soundtrack) by Craig Armstrong - Review
Musical Brutality
Review by Christopher Coleman

THE INCREDIBLE HULK is a bit of a reboot of the franchise - a much needed one. Ang Lee's attempt in 2003 fell flat with most critics and audiences. However, the failure of THE HULK did open the door for the "big guy" to come back, re-envisioned, after only 5 years. Director Louis Leterrier certainly didn't have the longest history of film making behind him prior to this film (which became another reason to substantiate doubts). With only THE TRANSPORTER 2 on his directorial resume, there was much room left to question the level of entertainment audiences would experience. To the suprise of some, myself included, Leterrier and company pulled it off. The tone and even the film's structure, to some degree, pays homage to the well-respected, 70s-television series starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno. This new INCREDIBLE HULK features solid writing, acting and action sequences which only get better and better until we reach the rock-em-sock-em finale! Indeed, our conflicted, yet lovable superhero is back and better than ever and one big reason for this is CRAIG ARMSTRONG's pile-driving score.
