More accurately, the title is "Marvel Knights: Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk". The story features Wolverine, hired by SHIELD, to hunt down Hulk. It shows Dr. Banner trying to come to terms with his demon. The animation is limited, however, I'm pretty sure this was done as a deliberate gimmick and not a money saver, as it still remains highly stylized. Still, if I wanted to experience a comic book...I'd buy a comic book. Not watch some peculiarly jointed animation on a screen. The story is vaguely interesting, as is the acting. They explore aspect of the Banner/Hulk relationship mulled on in comics, but rarely touched on once it hits live action or animation, which is a plus. But the visuals are very distracting, keeping from making this an enjoyable experience.
