What fun these two films are. Hulk VS Thor starts out with Odin going into a deep sleep once a year at which time the forces of evil descend upon Asgard to try to destroy it. Every year, however, their efforts are thwarted by Thor, God of Thunder, whose power is just too much for the forces of evil. Loki however decides to use the Incredible Hulk against Thor by separating Bruce Banner's conciseness from the Hulk entirely and to take control of the bruisers body. The battle that ensues between Hulk and Thor, and then later Hulk VS the rest of Asgard, is just too epic for words. This is the version of Hulk I love best, an unstoppable force capable of destroying everything in his path. Not even the assembled forces of Asgard are capable of stopping this Hulking beast. Nonstop super hero action is what you'll find here, and if you’re looking for something else pick up The Dark Night or something.
Hulk VS Wolverine is much the same, in that it’s pretty much nonstop Hulk action. Hulk is rampaging through Canada (yeah, you hear right) as so the world’s only bad ass Canadian, Wolverine, has been sent to stop him before he destroys anything else. Unbeknownst to him, s shady organization bent on turning Hulk into a super weapon is also tracking him and has sent a series of super villain, including Deadpool and Saber Tooth, to capture him. Again, nonstop Hulk action is what you'll get here. I'd give this one a slight edge over Hulk VS Thor just because Wolverines in it and Wolverine is the ultimate bad ass. Also getting to see them fight Deadpool was a lot of fun, so props for that.
I think what I like most about these films is just how powerful Hulk is. He beats Thor almost to death, and knocks out Wolverine in a matter of minutes. Even against a whole host of super villains Hulk just goes through the motions of tearing them apart as if they were nothing. It may seem a bit miss matched at times as Hulk does at times tend to be a bit TOO powerful, but again I kind of like that. Seeing these hero’s (and villains) desperately fighting for their lives against a force they just could not defeat was very fun to watch.
Overall this is a really fun two part set. In the world of animated super hero films, you could do a lot worse than this. It’s not the Batman movies, so don’t go thinking this will be that kind of quality, but if you’re a fan of the Incredible Hulk, you owe it to yourself to see these movies.

The Incredible Hulk has been tearing a line across the Canadian countryside, leaving a swath of destruction in his wake. He has to be stopped, and there's only one man up to the job. He's the best there is at what he does, but what he does isn't very nice. He's Wolverine, an elite agent of Canada's top secret Department H, and he's been put on Hulk's trail with a single objective: stop the green goliath...at all costs. Hulk and Wolverine are about to enter the fiercest battle of their lives.Hulk vs. Thor: Asgard, realm of the gods. For ages, Loki the trickster has sought a way to bring defeat to his accursed stepbrother, Thor.

Now, with Odin, the almighty king of the gods, deep in a regenerative sleep, and the forces protecting Asgard at their weakest, Loki is finally ready to spring his trap. In an epic battle that will pit gods against monsters, that will test a hero's limits more than ever before, only The Mighty Thor can hope to prevail
