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.

Trivia

Jack Colvin suffered a minor stroke shortly after his work on the film was finished. As a result, he largely stepped away from acting, which resulted in him being unable to reprise his role as McGee in either of the follow up movies. See more »

Goofs

When Donald Blake is in the cave and first finds Thor's hammer inside his sarcophagus, he mentions the room was filled with thunder and the lid of the sarcophagus was blown off on its own. However, strings attached the lid are clearly visible when they pull it off of the sarcophagus. See more »

Quotes

Doctor David Banner: You were in the mountains, Donald. At the altitude you reached, oxygen deprivation can easily happen, which makes one experience delusions...
Donald Blake: A hallucination? I wish. That's what I thought at first, but some time ago, back in America, I woke up... and there HE was, looking at me! He's been shadowing me around ever since, popping out like a magic rabbit from a hat! He isn't a hallucination, Bruce. He's real.

A very entertaining tv movie
26 June 2003 | by (sutton coldfield west midlands) – See all my reviews

I first watched this movie when i was 6 years old. Im 15 now and i still enjoy it. I was always fascinated by the incredible hulk, and with Lou Ferrigno's wonderful performance, you'll never be able to leave your seats.

My favourite scene was David Banner seeing thor for the first time i thought that scene was brilliantly done. However, this film has its weaknesses. The main weakness was the scene where the hulk is trying to pull the helicopter down, i thought he could do that himself and not have thor to help him, despite that they still couldn't pull the helicopter down.

However this didn't really effect the entertainment too much. It is a great shame that the late Bill Bixby isn't with us.
