Planet Hulk – the movie

Think Hulk goes Gladiator and you get the Planet Hulk movie. Hulk gets rocketed into space by the Illuminati, a group of heroes who consider Hulk too dangerous to stay on Earth. Hulk crashes onto the planet Sakaar, where the Red King reigns by terror and force. Hulk is captured and becomes a gladiator in the arena of the Red King, where he and his fellow gladiators battle it out for their freedom. Lives are lost along the way, and Hulk goes from selfish brute to protector and rebel leader.

I liked it. Granted, I never read the Greg Pak comic book upon which the movie was based, so I am clearly not a stickler for authenticity. That said, I liked the characters and I liked the storyline. It wasn’t a terribly original storyline, but it took choice bits from different stories and wove together a new one.

I won’t spoil the story for you, so you can watch the trailer for yourself here.
