Trivia

Betty Ross buys Bruce some purple pants. In the comics, the Hulk is almost always seen wearing purple pants. See more »

Goofs

Rickson Gracie has a cameo as Banner's martial arts instructor. Oddly, Gracie is listed as an Aikido instructor in the end credits even though he is actually a well known Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner (a son of one of the founders of the art) in real life, and Banner is learning a throw more typical of BJJ or Judo than Aikido in the shots leading up to the meditation practice scene that features Gracie.

Quotes

Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: As far as I'm concerned, that man's whole body is property of the U.S. army.

Crazy Credits

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 »

Finally a bit of meat and potato's to go with my green eggs and ham...
9 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went into this completely blind. I wanted a pure 'experience' I saw ONE trailer prior to this screening and closed my eyes while humming. I had no idea if this was a second in the series or a re-make.

I was pleasantly surprised at the (obvious)complete makeover of our big green friend, and this was a (P.R.)change for him no doubt... this delightful romp will bring him right into the "good guy fold" so to speak, within the umbrella of the, "Avengers" Franchise that is now an inevitability.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film, Lots of time on character development, and the intricacies that make you really care for a plot and its characters. I thought the acting was very well done although I found Liv Tyler to be the 'Weak Link'. Not sure she 'sold' her part that well or maybe it was just typecasting for that "Armageddon" girl.

The CGI was top shelf. There were no seriously 'over done' moments of ,"awww Come on" uttered in the theater. In this packed theater there were many ovations for the cameo's and the ,"Bad guy gets it" scenes, and even for the thrilling last minute of the movie. So where was Samuel L. Jackson?

Please enjoy this more Comic like and more faithful version of THE HULK!

*** PARENTS*** Go see it! Please do not bring kids under 5 yrs old! it is very realistic and violent. Be a good parent.
