Trivia

While Bill Bixby's terminal health is cited as the factor for postponing and ultimately scrapping a follow up movie that was not the case. The decision was made prior to Bixby's health becoming an issue, and was based on ratings declines by the film series. See more »

Goofs

When Jasmin is cutting the window to break into the airport (near the end of the movie), she is cutting at the bottom of the window pane, with the lower cut being only an inch or so from the pane bottom. Immediately thereafter, when she is shown removing the freshly cut piece of glass, the section cut is now from the middle of the pane, about four to six inches higher than shown seconds before.

Quotes

David Banner: I can tear down a brick wall but I can also mend flesh and bone in hours, minutes.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: David, are you telling me that this creature cannot die?
David Banner: If the damage were catastrophic maybe. Maybe. But I have seen lacerations close in seconds, bullet wounds heal, I don't even have scar.
Dr. Ronald Pratt: That's incredible. It's almost... it's almost immortal.
David Banner: Incredible yes, an incredible nightmare. And I want to destroy it and be human again.

Ang Lee was not here...mercifully!
6 May 2005 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

For all the phony fx and Ferrigno's campy though lovable Hulkisms, this film is everything that Lee's pathetic re-hash wasn't!

Bixby as David Banner had such pathos and dignity. Being older than most reviewers here, I remember fondly the late Bill Bixby in "My Favorite Martian" (another TV series unwisely and embarrassingly updated for the big screen....think "The Flintstones," "Mission Impossible," "Wild Wild West," "I Spy," etc - all complete and utter dead losses) But as I was saying, Bixby was an utter gentleman, and in this film he gives us the tortured scientist who carries this unwanted creature of destruction within him. He conveys vividly, his pain, his desperation and his regret for his wayward experimentation. Bana in the remake was a totally miscast idiotic wuss and with less credibility than the tea lady. Everything Bixby and Ferrigno stood for was washed down the plughole in two hours of split-screen insensitivity and dumbass special effects. Ferrigno...green and in tight beach shorts looks way better!

I recently bought this DVD for a miserable $2.95 in a bargain-bin. It is the only time I have ever felt saddened by the fact. This film and Bixby himself should never have been thus demeaned.This is a movie that is far better than its production values might otherwise suggest. Bixby directs (and acts) with commendable emotion.

At the end, it is almost as if he sensed his own approaching mortality. The Hulk had been such a huge part of his life, those two words "I'm free" might be seen as pretty much his epitaph.

If you laugh at this film, you should never have been watching it!
