THE INCREDIBLE HULK:MAN OR MONSTER?
A FILM BY JOHN TYLER RICHARDSON
THE INCREDIBLE HULK:MAN OR MONSTER? Remember when You were a kid and
You planned to make these Epic films using Your Father's video camera? I forgot how fun those days were until I got a chance
to check out this film by a very talented young Man named Jon Tyler Richardson. At age nine Tyler wrote, starrred in, and
Directed this film with little help from Us Grownups. The film is a take on the Hulk's early years adopting elements from
the classic Lee and Kirby storyline from the 60's with a touch of the 70's TV show starring Lou Ferrigno as the rampaging
green goliath. Like the original story Banner is exposed to Gamma radiation while trying to save Rick Jones from the blast.
Bobby Galvin plays Rick Jones in the film and does a great job. Galvin is the perfect compliment to Richardson's Banner and
makes for a very believeable sidekick. There are also all original characters introduced in the film like Overlord (played
by Rachel Heckler), a demented scientist who was horribly scarred in a laboratory accident and now vows to take over the world.
Frustrated with all of Her failed attempts to destroy the Hulk and obtain Banners Gamma Bomb Overlord sends Her greatest invention(a
Robot named Robot-X) to take care of business. The two mighty beings clash in a battle Royal destroying everything in their
path. Hulk is wounded and Betty is kidnapped by the Robot and taken to The Overlord's secret lair. Rick Jones and Banner head
out to find Overlord and Save Betty (played by Mary Heckler). In the end secrets are revealed and a reluctant Hero learns
to accept His tragic destiny. I enjoyed this film because there was visibly alot of passion that went into making it. Richardson's
love of the Hulk mythos and comics of the Silver Age really shine through. Considering the age of the Young People involved
in making this film happen and the lack of budget it is truly an impressive piece of work. Minimal effects (like green lighting
and camera trickery) are used for the Hulk's transformation sequences but they seem to work and are reminiscent of Lon Chaney's
Wolfman transformations from the old Universal films. Jon Tyler Richardson plays both roles (Banner and The Hulk) with equal
passion and skill. These talented Young people have a very bright future ahead of them and I look forward to seeing their
work get better and better. As a matter of fact the sequel to this film is currently in development and will be completed
soon. For more details on the upcoming sequel and for more on this film vsit the official website by clicking on the pic.
