the hulk looks different
29 April 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

The first real episode clocking in at 50 minutes. The main difference is in fact the Hulk itself. He's less greener than in the two movies made for episode 1 and 2 and his hair is different.

This time David is still wandering throughout the US. When arriving in the next city he is immediately robbed but rescued by a boxer named 'Rocky'. He take care of David and they become friends but without money David need work and is taken to the gym by Rocky to start working as his corner-man. But Rocky always has to bring special deliveries to people and David suspects it's some illegal stuff. But David's robbers are still waiting to give Rocky a lesson, David is out their to become the Hulk and saves Rocky but one package is severally damaged, looks like drugs.

From there on Rocky is in trouble and David has to transform to save him finally. Made in the era when the film Rocky (1976) was very popular so they tried to use a story a bit the same as Rocky. Al Ruscio is here to see as a bad guy, a big name back then.
