Trivia:
Following up appearances by Thor and Dare Devil in the two previous Hulk TV movies, Iron Man was initially intended for use in the film.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: After the failed experiment, when The Hulk is escaping the lab, he rips open a chain link fence, but as it's shown in slow motion, you can plainly see that none of the links are ripped or broken or torn, so it was really just two overlapping fences that he separates.See more »
Quotes:
[David stands at Pratt's blackboard where his formula notes are written and he points at the start of the notes as he looks at Pratt, who is seated at his desk]
David Banner:I was at this far twelve years ago. I thought I knew so much.
Dr. Ronald Pratt:You were one of the pioneers.
David Banner:I was a patient. I read all of your papers on everything. Developmental growth factors, molecular genetics, cryogenics. Even then you were chasing the healing powers. But I was after the extra strength, the superhuman unexplained strength that all humans are capable of during moments of danger.
Dr. Ronald Pratt:I read all of your papers too. You were the first to use radiation.
David Banner:But I moved too fast. I experimented on myself. And...
Dr. Ronald Pratt:And now you have that strength.
David Banner:Now I have a mutation, near the rage center of my brain. And during moments of anger or fear, it secrets a hormone and I become a mutant thing, a beast until that rage ends. Now the world thinks that I'm dead, but they also think that this creature inside of me is a murderer and they may some day be right! It's not human! Maybe it's what we were before we became human. Maybe it's the worst of us. I never see it. My conscious mind stops. I can't control it.
[David points at the end of the formula written on the blackboard]
David Banner:But do you know what comes next?

True Hulk fans will love it. Everyone else? Hmm..., 26 December 2008
Author: rooprect from New York City

My glowing review is biased by green fever. But even so, this is a fantastic movie. Unlike the last 2 "New Hulk" abominations in 2003 and 2008, this is old school Hulk. NO CGI COMPUTER NONSENSE. No digitally manipulated fake muscles. This is just plain Lou, looking bulkier, hulkier and downright scarier than ever. All the graphic computers in the world can't make a creature 1/10th as convincing as Lou with a bucket of green paint. Damn straight.

Bill Bixby himself looks to be in top form, which is terribly ironic considering his tragic death of cancer 2 years later. But for what it's worth, this episode is like a time machine to that classic show from the 70s. Its only flaw is the lack of Jack Colvin ("Mr. McGee") as the third major character in the Hulk series.

About the story... everyone listen up. "The Incredible Hulk" is, was, and always shall be an adaptation of a comic book. It dwells in a surreal world where bizarre characters like Thor, Daredevil and evil Russian spies make their entrances and exits, and we the audience aren't supposed to get bent out of shape. It's a world where nothing is unbelievable. So if you're going to be a cynical, skeptical, stinky mcpoophead, then go watch "On Golden Pond" and leave the fun to the rest of us kiddies.

With that said, though, this is by far the most realistic of the Hulk trilogy. In plot, acting and direction, it shows a level of maturity unlike its predecessors. Some very sobering themes are touched upon here, made all the more tragic in the context of director/star Bill Bixby's real life battle with cancer. One can't help but wonder if, in this film, the creature was a metaphor for Mr. Bixby's own condition and his attempts to free himself. Keep that in mind as you watch the film and I promise it will leave you stunned and amazed.

The final scene is just breathtaking. I won't ruin it, but I'll just say it has to be one of the most memorable scenes in all of film. As you see it, pay attention to the darkness and surreal lighting, listen to song which is playing, consider the very last line (cliché as it may seem, it's absolutely perfect), and take your hat off to the great Bill Bixby.
