Our Score
Bursting from the pages of Marvel Comics on to our TV screens in 1978, the Incredible Hulk was, briefly, essential viewing for teenagers everywhere. But by the time this TV movie appeared a decade later, audiences had grown out of his superheroic exploits, in much the same way that Bill Bixby grew out of his clothes (and turned into snarling Lou Ferrigno) every time he had a temper tantrum. Convinced that mere mortals were no longer a match for the far-from-jolly green giant, the producers brought in another Marvel regular, the mighty Thor, to provide the villainy. The plot is as tatty as Bixby's ripped shirt, but it's undemanding fun.

Summary

David Banner and his green-skinned alter ego clash with Thor, the Viking god of thunder - but the battling duo are forced to put their differences aside when a group of power-hungry industrialists threaten to destroy Banner's only chance of regaining his humanity. Comic-book adventure, starring Bill Bixby, Lou Ferrigno and Eric Kramer.
