Quotes

Michael Sutton: Listen Bennet, I've got plenty of room at my house on the island, why don't you be my guest overnight and tomorrow I can have my man fly you over to Miami.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: I, I couldn't impose, really.
Michael Sutton: Oh, nonsense, a man who plays chess as well as you is the best kind of guest.

Top notch Hulk episode
16 June 2008 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

David Banner impresses a very wealthy man by being a good chess competitor. The man invites David to spend the night on his remote island inhabited only by him. As fate would have it the man sets out to hunt David as he's gotten bored with hunting animals. But as he realises that David has an alternative side to him the game becomes a little more even.

Based on the 48 page story "The Most Dangerous Game", this season 3 episode is really top notch. The setup is marvellous and once David starts fighting for his life the episode is nonstop excitement. The Hulk scenes are impressive and the writing overall here is very good.

You've seen this scenario filmed lots of times before but this is one of those instances where if it's done right it's simply very entertaining. The original story deals with man's hunting instincts taken to the next level and, if you think about it, it fits perfectly for a series like "The Incredible Hulk". The Hulk is part human/part prehistoric man and that's what really excites the hunter who'll stop at nothing to invoke David's mean side to make the ultimate kill.

One of the better stand-alone episodes from The Incredible Hulk.
