David Banner, a research scientist who is haunted by the death of his wife whom he couldn't save in a car accident is researching how to tap the hidden reserves of incredible strength all humans have. While investigating episodes of people who have displayed such strength under times of great stress, he discovers that each one coincided with a solar flare spike of gamma radiation. Convinced by the link, Banner decides to put it to the test when he deliberately doses himself with gamma radiation. Unknown to him however, the machine was modified to give a far higher dose than he anticipated. While there was no immediate effect, that soon changes when on the way home, he forced to change a tire in the rain. He injures himself and the result anger and frustration transforms him into a massively powerful green giant, the Hulk. He eventually changes back and, now he must investigate what did this thing and face the consequences. Written by

Richard Kiel was initially cast as the Hulk, but shortly after filming began, it became apparent to the producers that he wasn't "bulky" enough to play the role. There is, however, an intact but brief high-angle scene with Kiel as the Hulk (when he looks up at a tree). See more »
Right after the Hulk begins to change back to David Banner for the first time (by the side of the lake), Banner looks into the lake and mutters "my God" when he sees his reflection with white eyes. He swats at the water, and when the image clears up he sees his face with his normal eyes. Look at the frame right before he swats the water; his eyes are already back to normal. See more »

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if all of Marvel and D.C. 's came to our boring little reality to peacefully co-exist ? If we ever did have a Hulk,this is the closest thing.Gone is the Roswell-like cover-up of a green monster and here we have a closer and realistic version of a tabloid reporter seeking the truth in an X-File that even Mulder and Scully wouldn't even acknowledge.Ten stars for the most sympathetic and misunderstood monster.
