Trivia

This film marks the second time the character of Bruce Banner had appeared naked on film. In Hulk (2003), he's seen nude after he reverts back to his normal form after the fight with the mutant dogs. In this film, he's seen nude as he's reflecting on past events in the shower. See more »

Goofs

An exterior shot of the military helicopter taking Bruse and Bety away after he is captured at the lab, shows it to be a CH-53 or similar variant, heavy-lift Sikorsky S-65 model helicopter with refueling boom. However, the interior is of a much smaller helicopter, more likely a UH-60 Blackhawk or variant. See more »

Quotes

Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: You did the right thing, calling us. Leonard, I need to know where they're going. She'll be in incredible danger as long as she's with him.
Leonard: From who? He protected her. You almost killed her.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: I give you my word, her safety is my main concern at this point.
Leonard: You know, it's a point of professional pride for me that I can tell when somebody's lying. And you are.
[pause]
Leonard: I don't know where he's going. I know she'll help him if she can.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Then she's aiding a fugitive. And I can't help either one of them.

Almost Incredible
10 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I attended a sneak preview of The Incredible Hulk last night. Incredible? No, but Very Good. And it washes the bad taste left in my mouth from Indiana Jones and the Big Letdown. The story is good, the acting is awesome. Ed Norton is the perfect person to play the tormented Bruce Banner. He is more believable in the roll than Eric Bana. Liv Tyler is very good as Betty Ross (formally played by the tasty Jennifer Connelly) William Hurt as General Ross is impressive and makes for a worthy adversary to Bruce Banner. If I had to come up with a negative, it would be Tim Roth. While I really like him, and he always plays great villains, I feel he's just miss cast here. He seems tiny next to General Ross. Instead of coming off like the English bad ass special op he's supposed to be, he comes off more like a jerk with Napoleon Syndrome. Someone more physically imposing like Vinnie Jones (Bullet tooth from Snatch), or Daniel Craig (the new Bond) would have been more convincing for the part. But I'm just picking here. The movie is a joy. Great action. No long boring, dragging development stuff that the first Hulk had in spades. There are some very nice cameos as well. Some were a surprise, some were not. I didn't see Nick Fury anywhere except in a brief headline in a montage. However I did not remain through the credits, so there might have been a scene at the end like Iron Man that I don't know about. I give it ***1/2 out of ****. I also predict it to make 80+million this weekend when it opens to the public and should "Hulk Smash" the competition. The movie received an ovation from the audience at the end which sums it up. A worthy movie made for the fans and everyone else.
