Storyline

Bruce Banner, a brilliant scientist with a cloudy past about his family, is involved in an accident in his laboratory causing him to become exposed to gamma radiation and Nanomeds (A tiny life-form that is supposed to heal wounds but has killed everything with which they have made contact). Confused and curious about his survival, Banner discovers that since the accident, whenever he becomes angry he transforms into a giant green monster destroying everything in sight in an act of fury. Bruce's mysterious past and the answer to why the radiation had this effect becomes revealed to him as his Birth Father David Banner intervenes with hopes to continue experimenting on him.

Trivia

In the Hulk comics, Bruce Banner's father was named Brian Banner. He was renamed David Banner in this film as a tribute to The Incredible Hulk (1978), where the Hulk was known as David Banner. See more »

Goofs

Several of the California National Guard troops are depicted as being armed with M16A1 rifles (distinguished by their smooth, triangular forward hand-guards and three-pronged flash suppressor). The National Guard phased out the M16A1 in the 1980s, replacing it with the upgraded M16A2 (ribbed, rounded forward hand-guards, and an enclosed, "birdcage" flash suppressor). See more »

Pretty good actually
12 October 2003 | by (Dorset) – See all my reviews

I went into this fearing the worst and I was rather quite surprised. I thought all the so called 'boring' parts were needed both for characterisation and plot development. The way all this is shot keeps it from slowing down to much and before you know it the Hulk is out. Very impressive visually, only spoiled by a lousy ending.

8/10.
