When I first heard the note of finality in the title of this, the third Hulk revival in three years, I thought it meant poor David Banner (Bill Bixby) had finally stumbled across a stress-management course. After all, if the guy could just learn to avoid getting het up, he would stop mutating into the primal monster played with such éclat by Lou Ferrigno.
But what happens is nothing that banal. Instead, Banner passes himself off as a simpleminded janitor to gain access to a top-secret laboratory that may hold the key to his Hulkization. But dastardly terrorists are after the same experiments. It's a feckless little outing for the Mean Green Machine, with a ridiculous romantic entanglement. Plus, at two hours, this cheap production is about 45 minutes too long.
