Jack McGee was a tabloid reporter who attempted to track down the Hulk in The Incredible Hulk (1978), and in the comics Jim Wilson was a young orphan who befriended the Hulk. See more »
After getting out of their car on their way to New York, Bruce and Betty pass a sign on a bridge that says "8km/h, no wake". Clearly this was shot in Canada, as U.S. uses miles not kilometers. See more »
SPOILER: A scene appears before the closing credits: as General Ross sits in a bar, he is visited by Tony Stark, who banters a little and finally informs Ross "they're putting a team together." This leads into The Avengers (2012) (a superhero team of which Iron Man and the Hulk are founding members). See more »
Better in every way to the 2003 film, this movie is another in a line of films that will set up the Avengers movie on the big screen. Iron Man was a better film on the whole, however, I thought this one had by far the better final showdown fight. The story has Bruce Banner on the run from General Ross and the army as they want the incredible power that resides in Banner. They wish to create their own super soldiers. There is a great chase scene in I think Rio and of course the transformation and the first meeting of the Hulk and a soldier named Emil Blonsky. Bruce goes on the run again and makes his way to the university where Betty Ross works in order to find data on the gamma experiment to send information to a scientist that Bruce has been communicating with in hopes of a cure. Meanwhile, Blonsky is given a super soldier serum and the next encounter with the Hulk ends up with him being nearly killed. Finally, Blonsky gains the ultimate power and it is up to Bruce and his mean green alter ego to save the day. The action in this one is great, the Hulk looks rather good as does the Abomination and their fight is one of the better ones in a comic book based movie, especially between two super strong characters. The only complaints I have is that the feel of the movie is just not right. It feels like you jump in the middle of a story that needed a bit more background. I just do not know how to say it, unlike Iron Man, something feels off. So good movie yes, but Iron Man is still the top avenger so far.
