Goofs

A tremendous blast of air might temporarily extinguish a blazing fuel-fed fire, but when Hulk clapped his hands to extinguish the helicopter fuel blaze, it didn't remove the fuel and small scattered fires were left burning, which should have rekindled the flames, but didn't. See more »

Tony Stark: The smell of stale beer... and defeat. You know, I hate to say "I told you so," but that Super-Soldier project WAS put on ice for a reason. I've always felt that hardware was much more reliable.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Stark.
Tony Stark: General.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: You always wear such nice suits.
Tony Stark: Touché. I hear you have an unusual problem.

Great Movie!
18 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I want to comment on this movie, especially since I just recently saw "The Happening", which came out at the same time, and commented on that. The difference between them is night and day. "The Happening" was probably the worst movie I have ever seen, and I rated it a 1..because it was awful. This is an awesome movie! This "Hulk" movie was way better that the 2003 one, and put that one to shame. I was in awe at some of the scenes, and totally engrossed in the movie from start to finish. It had great special effects that rocked! I love Edward Norton, and he was terrific in this. It also seemed realistic, and felt like that could happen to people, from experiments gone wrong..etc. This was fun, and exciting. This movie was a 10 for sure!
