Trivia

The film is tinted greenish as a tribute to the Hulk (who has green skin). See more »

Goofs

The Portuguese spoken by some actors acting as Brazilian characters (like Tough Guy Leader) is heavily broken, with ridiculous accents. The Portuguese words and dialog are clearly phonetically memorized. Obviously only Brazilian actors Débora Nascimento and Rickson Gracie speak a real Portuguese. See more »

Quotes

Bruce Banner: [speaking Brazilian Portuguese while confronting bullies at work] Don't make me... hungry. You wouldn't like me when I'm... hungry.
[in English, to himself]
Bruce Banner: Uh... that's not right.

Attention - Origin Mixture!!!
11 June 2008 | by (Nashville, TN USA) – See all my reviews

For those that know only of the original comic book Hulk, the TV series Hulk, or the regrettable Ang Lee Hulk, you should know that this new version is a mixture of origins.

Without spoiling it, one of the larger ingredients in this new Hulk comes from a Marvel series that is an alternate universe. There are many differences in the Ultimates Universe. In this version, Banner did not get his gamma radiation from exposure during an experimental bomb explosion. I won't spoil it, but you can go to www.marvel.com and look under "Ultimates" if you wish to get the gist of it.

I can truly say that this version captures a little of everything, so that no matter what your knowledge is of the Hulk character, there's tie-ins to everything.

Personally, I felt this reboot was well thought out. It allows for any future connectivity by not limiting it to one version of the Hulk. This will allow future Marvel movie-makers the ability to pick and choose aspects from the multitude of alternate universes, re-tellings, and time spans to combine whatever they please.

This was well cast. When the overall product can make me forget the fact that I don't like a specific actor, and truly appreciate the total entertainment experience, it's something to smile about. I won't mention which one I don't care for, since all that will do is spark useless debate.

Story - intricate and intelligent, fast-paced, yet deeply explanatory, complex, yet easily taken in by non-geeks. Enough references to the true comic, alternate comic, and TV show, that everyone in the sneak peek seemed to be pleased. I surely was.

CGI was great. Don't know why some have to nit-pick, but you can't please everyone, I guess. Action was wonderful with plenty of it! If you've ever read one of my reviews, you'll know that I'm a true fan of overall entertainment. While I have favorites, I don't base reviews on just one actor, writer, director, production company, genre, or whatever. So, if you don't like my opinion, so be it.
