Storyline

The finale of the television series about Dr. David Banner, a scientist who transforms into a mighty, larger-than-life creature called the Hulk when he gets angry. Desperately attempting to purge himself of his monster-like alter ego, Banner sneaks into a research laboratory. During the critical experiment to purge him of the Hulk once and for all, a spy sabotages the laboratory. Banner falls in love with the spy, Jasmin, who performs missions only because her sister is being held hostage by Jasmin's superiors. Banner and Jasmin attempt to escape from the enemy agents to rebuild their lives together, but the Hulk is never far from them. Written by Dave Smith <dave@stat.colostate.edu>

Trivia

Possibly due to budget constraints, there is no new footage in this movie of the transformation sequences. There is only the closeup of Banner's white eyes, a cutaway to another action, and then an aftermath shot of the Hulk. See more »

Goofs

After the failed experiment, when The Hulk is escaping the lab, he rips open a chain link fence, but as it's shown in slow motion, you can plainly see that none of the links are ripped or broken or torn, so it was really just two overlapping fences that he separates. See more »

Bittersweet ending to a beloved show and movie series
14 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE DEATH OF THE INCREDIBLE HULK was the final instalment of the Bill Bixby-starring TV show and later movie series chronicling the adventures of the green giant. As such it's a bittersweet viewing experience, especially when knowing that Bixby himself would die of prostate cancer only a couple of years after making this, what was to be his swansong in the role.

The plot is a straightforward adventure that pits the Hulk and a newfound love interest for David Banner against a group of nefarious spies for whom industrial sabotage, kidnapping, and murder are the order of the day. Of course, all this had to happen just when it seemed that Banner would finally rid himself of the Hulk curse, but then if everything had gone right it wouldn't have made for a very dramatic story.

This TV movie lacks the presence of the other superhero characters from the last two movies (Thor in THE INCREDIBLE HULK RETURNS and Daredevil in THE TRIAL OF THE INCREDIBLE HULK) but nevertheless proves to be a fun watch, thanks to plenty of Hulk-out action from the reliable Lou Ferrigno and a surprisingly decent turn from a thoughtful Bixby. It's no classic, but at least it brings closure to a much-loved phenomenon.
