Good Sequel Film.
23 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Second outing for Bill Bixby as Doctor David Banner, now on the run after he is believed killed in a lab explosion, fleeing from the dogged pursuit of reporter Jack McGee, once again memorably played by Jack Colvin, and of course muscular Lou Ferrigno returns as the Hulk, who is more hero than monster, though uncontrollable.

Story has David helping disabled heiress Julie Griffith(played by Laurie Prange)who is being undermined by her manipulative, cold-hearted stepmother(played as such by Dorothy Tristan) Fine supporting actor William Daniels is more effective as her corrupt doctor, who is in on the plot. Gerald McRaney makes the first of four appearances, all as different characters(!) and is believable as the manipulated love interest of Julie. Plot is contrived, but entertaining, though climax with bear should have been trimmed...

Memorable ending sets up subsequent TV series quite well.
