Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

How it all began
18 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dr.David Bruce Banner is looking for an inner strength that people get in times of peril. He is mad he didn't have it to save his wife when she died. He uses gamma radiation on himself. Which turns him into the superhuman monster The Incredible Hulk! Bill Bixby is perfect as Banner,and Ferringo is perfect as Hulk I loved this film,everything about it is great. It is a super hero film,but it reminded me of the old universal monster films. We get references to The Wolfman,and Frankenstein. I thought those were great. Also a very touching musical score. Much better than the new hulk!

4/4
