Did You Know?

Trivia

Although director Louis Leterrier liked Hulk (2003), he concurred with Marvel Studios that to continue the franchise it would be better to deviate from Ang Lee's cerebral style from the first film and focus on a more action-filled tone. He also believed that in keeping with Hulk (2003)'s poetic feel, the VFX were mostly "a fluorescent-green guy who was simply flying around; he had no weight and was too smooth-looking," so he wished to make the film's VFX grittier and darker "and perhaps even a little scarier!"

Goofs

The General and Emil Blonsky are in the helicopter/equipment bay talking about super soldiers, where General tells Emil about Banner's work; The General sits in a dentist-like chair and the immediate background behind his head changes from gray boxes to bright yellow strapped boxes and other assorted pile of gray boxes.

Quotes

Major Kathleen 'Kat' Sparr: Sir, Blonsky...
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: [expecting the worst] Does anyone know if he has any next-of-kin or family?
Major Kathleen 'Kat' Sparr: Ask him yourself...
Emil Blonsky: [salutes Ross, in perfect health] Sir!

Crazy Credits

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 post-credits scene. See more »

Don't make me hungry...
16 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three cheers for Marvel for finally realizing that no one knows their material better then themselves. May they never sell another beloved superhero to a lesser being again.

For the second time this summer Marvel has given us a superhero movie that just plain rocks. With the exact right amount of humour, character development and great action sequences, the Incredible Hulk is up there with Iron Man as one of my favourite films to be released so far in the summer movie season. While I didn't like it quite as much as Iron Man (Robert Downey WAS Tony Stark. Whereas something still doesn't sit right about Edward Norton as Bruce...) it was nevertheless a great, faithful adaptation of the comic books. Plus the cameo appearances by both Stan Lee and Robert Downey Jr where terrific! Possibly my favourite Stan Lee cameo yet.

There isn't really much else to say besides, go see it for yourselves. If you're a fan of the comics, or just of fun popcorn films you'll definitely enjoy this one.

8/10
