The Incredible Hulk (2008)

A uniquely internally-focused superhero movie (following the superhero seeking to get rid of his destructive power) up until the standard and eye-rolling ending in which he embraces his power in a mediocre fight/destruction scene. It’s an abrupt and disappointing switch, and nearly crushes Norton’s captivating and mature performance that was already struggling amidst weak supporting characters to hold the weight of the film’s premise by itself. Good potential is only partially realized here.
