Storyline

It's been two years since the Hulk has surfaced, and Dr David Bruce Banner is on the verge of curing himself of the Hulk. A device he helped create, the Gamma Transponder, will rid him of his own Gamma radiation, among other uses. Enter Don Blake, a former colleague of Banner's, who is now in possession of a mystic hammer which can summon Thor, an ancient Viking warrior. When the Gamma Transponder is nearly stolen and Banner's girlfriend is kidnapped, Banner must abandon the hope of being cured and rely on the Hulk and Thor to save the day.

A great TV movie.
29 January 2005 | by (Normal, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

I am so glad they made 3 TV movies of the Hulk, it is great to see Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno reprise their roles from "The Incredible Hulk" TV series, and Jack Colvin reprise his role as investigative reporter Jack McGee in this TV movie.

David Banner, using the alias David Banion, is working for an institute that is into research and he has helped develop a gamma radiation machine that will probably cure him. David Banner is living with his co-worker and lover, Dr. Margaret Shaw, played by Lee Purcell(Airplane II: The Sequel, Valley Girl, and The Unknown). Margeret does not know his secret. David Banner has not turned into the Hulk in 2 years and does not want to put Margaret in danger.

David is working at the lab late at night and an old acquaintance of his, Donald Blake, played great by Steve Levitt (Private School, Hunk, and The Experts), who knows who David is. Donald tells his adventure exploring a cavern in the mountain, discovers a tomb of an ancient Viking warrior, named Thor, played superbly by Eric Kramer(True Romance, Robin Hood: Men In Tights, and American Wedding). Donald uses a hammer he discovers in the tomb, the hammer of Thor, it is a way to summon Thor. Donald demonstrates how it works, David and Thor meet, Thor makes David anger by pushing him, and turns into the Hulk, they have it out, but they stop fighting cause of the police showing up. Jack McGee is at the institution the next day asking questions, David sees McGee and hides cause Jack McGee things he is dead.

I won't tell you the rest, but I will tell you there are forces out to steal the gamma machine, Jack LeBeau, played by a sci fi great Tim Thomerson(Trancers 1-6, Nemesis 1 and 3), and his goon, played by Charles Napier(Rambo: First Blood Part II ,Austin Powers:The Spy Who Shagged Me).

This movie is awesome, I give it 10/10 and 2 thumbs up.
