In addition to doing rewrites, Edward Norton actually directed himself in some of his own scenes too, such as the campus scenes, to save time when the director was busy working with 2nd-unit. This is mentioned on the "Director's Commentary" of the Blu-Ray. See more »
All pulse monitoring watches, like the one that Bruce is shown wearing requires the large button below the display to be held down for the pulse to appear. Bruce is never touching the watch while it shows his pulse increasing. At best, it would only display the last pulse reading after he had (possibly) removed his finger. This would apply to some heart-rate watches but the Polar F5 uses a wireless sensor strapped around the chest. That watch does not need a finger pressed to it to check the heart rate and will update continuously in monitor mode while exercising. See more »

... This is what I was trying to explain... I don't know what you've been ladling into yourself... Let's assume you don't understand a word I'm saying... but if you'll just get back on the table... I can... fix this...

SPOILER: In the opening credits, a blueprint of the sonic cannon at Culver University can be seen bearing the title "Stark Industries," indicating that it was Tony Stark (of Iron Man (2008)) who built the cannons for General Ross to use against the Hulk. Stark himself appears in the film's closing scene. See more »
Spit out the 2003 version of Hulk like a bad taste in your mouth! This is an exciting movie
I wasn't really sure if I'd like the movie. Ang Lee's version didn't please me at all. It didn't have enough action and it had far too much dialogue. I had never really been a fan of the Hulk comics, but I did like all the movie adaptations of the Marvel Comics. While I didn't enjoy The Incredible Hulk as much as Iron Man, it's still great fun, and it will definitely make a big profit at the box office, and hopefully more money than the first did.
I also must say the cast is a lot better this time around. Edward Norton is far more convincing as Bruce Banner than Eric Bana was. Liv Tyler does a good job as Betty, Bruce's girlfriend, though I do like Jennifer Connelly a bit more. The supporting cast is also great, and they all deserve to at least be nominated for some awards. My favorite performance is tied between Norton and Tim Roth.
Now, to the special effects. Predictably, they are magnificent. With recent superhero movies, the effects are always brilliant, and they certainly adapted the Hulk character more closely to the original comics from what I've heard. The action scenes are cool and fun to watch, and fans of the comic books will be on the edge of their seat in excitement.
All in all, it's a great movie that comic fans should enjoy, and even if you don't really read them, you'll still like the movie, as I did. While it's not my favorite superhero movie, it is a whole lot better than Ang Lee's version, and a fun time at the theater.
