Planet Hulk (2010)

When Earth's superheroes exile the volatile Incredible Hulk to a distant planet called Sakaar, the muscle-bound green monster is sold into slavery and forced to compete in gladiatorial games for the planet's despotic Red King. But soon, the Hulk joins forces with his fellow slaves to fight for freedom -- and a chance to get revenge on his earthly foes. This animated film is based on the "Planet Hulk" storylines originally featured in Marvel comics.

A surprisingly good adaptation of the comic series by the same name, this animated film skips a few of the cool bits from the comic, but manages a much more satisfying ending (man the end of that comic was bad). The voice work is pretty good and the animation looks nice, for the most part. A word of warning to parents who think animated means OK for kids: this isn’t. It’s extremely violent, and at times very dark. It is NOT a kids movie. The Planet Hulk comic finally made this character somewhat interesting to me, and the movie captures a little of that. Certainly worth a watch.

As a former huge comic-book geek, I had to watch this. Planet Hulk and World War Hulk were two of my favorites at the end of my comic-book-madness.



4/5 Stars
