Samuel L. Jackson,
Depicting the events after the Gamma Bomb. 'The Incredible Hulk' tells the story of Dr Bruce Banner, who seeks a cure to his unique condition, which causes him to turn into a giant green monster under emotional stress. Whilst on the run from military which seeks his capture, Banner comes close to a cure. But all is lost when a new creature emerges; The Abomination. Written by
(at around 1h 35 mins) 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.

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 »
About 1100 reviews on the old IMDb and I am going to do something I
have never done before -- review on a bell curve.
Seriously, before you start listing all the things you DIDN'T like, ask
yourself how many live action Hulk movies have there been outside of
the Avenger ensemble acts? Answer: Two. Only two. Just two.
And the entry from Ang Lee was so wretched, so horrific, that this one
gets a push up the curve.
It is actually a solid film. Roth makes a great villain. Tyler was a
great love interest. (The scene where Hulk becomes a giant fire
extinguisher is one for the record books and memorable). And Norton is
arguably the highest-level A-lister to ever play the role.
(Or, also arguably, to ever play it again -- notice he was gone from
the Avenger movies. Also notice that the two solo-Hulk movies did so
poorly at the box office that this one actually ends with a promo for
the coming Avengers, suggesting that the suits at Marvel are no longer
interested in gambling on Hulk in a film by himself and all your future
Hulk movies may be of the animated variety).
All done, this is a much better film than the reviews would suggest.
