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. Written by

When the thugs attack David Banner and his co-worker Roy at the lab right before the second Hulk out, Mike screams at Roy and tries to shoot him. Banner grabs Mike's arm and causes him to shoot one of his thugs in the chest instead. However, within a few seconds after David starts to turn into the Hulk, the thug who was shot is uninjured and is helping the thugs attack Roy. See more »
David, it's okay...
[David opens his eyes and he looks at Thor]
Doctor David Banner:
Go away. Leave me alone, please. You just don't understand. You don't know what could happen, *please.*
[Thor starts lightly pushing David back, slowly pushing him him into the main control area]
Go away, eh?
Don't push him!
Leave you be, eh?
Sounds more like insult than hospitality!
What're you doing, you jerk?

For those who didn't exactly take the series seriously might have a heck of a time with this comeback movie for The Incredible Hulk. But for those who did take them seriously (those being me), I find this a rather silly entry.
The humane aspect is what fueled the series. Bill Bixby was an irresistible lead and his quest for a cure never failed to be interesting. In short it was the drama that made the show as appealing as it was. In The Incredible Hulk Returns we see him team up with Thundergod Thor as David's attempts to cure himself are once again thrashed. The Hulk and Thor battle criminals who are out to steal David's machine, the one he built which might have helped to cure him.
The film starts off well and then goes downward after Thor's introduction. He's made to be pretty silly but still he's engagingly played by Eric Kramer and somehow he's pretty likable. The action scenes are fine and the Hulk moments are solid. Lou Ferrigno looks incredible and everything concerning David Banner and the Hulk is good stuff. But the campy feel and humor is something the shows didn't go much for and undermine the whole proceedings, like it wasn't taken seriously enough. But maybe that's what they were aiming for.
Jack Colvin makes a welcome return as relentless reporter Jack McGee who once again misses out on the big story. As always Bixby is rock solid and the flick works in some places but misses in others.
It's still an above average entertainment for a fan of the series.
