Big dumb fun

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.

Thanks for all suggestions, perhaps I'll have something to contribute to this community after all.

The problem I had with this was that it was totally unfaithful to the source material (Thor been whooping greenskin for the most part). Sure, it was based on HEROES REBORN but really that was the mistake. There is just no way Wolverine could put up a better fight than Thor at all. This was obviously an attempt to 'plug' the new Hulk movie at the time. But yeah this was fun, I did like the Wolvie story better as it had DEADPOOL

Like I said before, I don't really know a whole lot about the source material. I kinda like this all powerful and unbeatable Hulk, even though yes he's a bit TOO powerful. I still really liked the movie, I guess mainly because I'm not familiar with the source material.

Oh yeah, I agree.

Frank down there also brought some good recs. He did forget to recommend THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS (parts one and two) Great adaptation of the graphic novel!

BOTH ARE EXCELLENT
      HULK VS      Being that I am a fan of Marvel Comics and just about every character that has come out of there you know that I had to have this. In fact I don't know why I have yet to review this up to this point. I remember seeing this on the shelf the day it was released and getting excited because I just knew this would be the best of the latest group of animated films from Marvel. So after calling my bro to come see this with me and since my girl …

I think the biggest thing to come from this release though is that everyone wants to know when Deadpool will get his own film. If he does get one you better believe I will be buying it, and I won't wait so long to review it either. But enough about that and back onto this, this is an excellent set that seems to be the first in a line of vs films and if they are like this one then they will all be successful. I highly recommend buying this, skip a lame rental.

Well not really being that into comic books and their characters (apart from the live action adaptations) I didn't really have high expectations of this, but I must say I genuinely enjoyed it. I have only managed to catch Hulk vs. Wolverine so far, but I will add my two cents in regards to Hulk vs. Thor when I've viewed that.    Hulk vs. Wolverine had a runtime by my calculations of around 37 minutes, so I really wasn't going to get a genuine plot or that much character depth. …

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. But for all the battles Thor has fought, in all the nine realms, only one creature has ever been able to match his strength - a mortal beast of Midgard known as The Incredible Hulk. 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
