Hulk Blu-ray Review

Hulk Blu-ray Review
Written by Loys Johnson

Video
Hulk comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p VC-1 video transfer. Detail on the release is quite impressive, reference during many scenes. Close-ups looked fantastic, and detail was strong with even the smallest bits on the screen. Colors tend to be quite good as well, although a bit more dull in indoor scenes. The source is very clean, and free of any intrusive grain. Hulk left me very impressed. 9/10.

Audio
Universal provides DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio track, and it sounds very impressive. Hulk is filled with action, and it comes to life with lossless audio. Dialogue was nice and clear for the majority of the film, but felt a bit quiet during any action scenes. The film's action scenes made fantastic use of the surround speakers, as did the film's soundtrack. Hulk sounds fabulous, and fans will be pleased. 9/10.

My Scenes

Extras were all presented in standard definition. The Picture-in-Picture track was actually a bit disappointing, there was very little to it, and very little did it pop up through out the film. The making of is quite interesting, and found that to be the most enjoyable feature of the extras. 5/10.

Blu-news Summary
Hulk was a mediocre film at best, but many should find it decent. The video and audio presentations are fantastic, and left me very satisfied. There are quite a few extras, some better than others, but happy with what was included. Overall I say 'Give It A Rent', but recommend to any fans of the film.
