Bruce is an ordinary Gamma expert who one day gets blasted with radiation and somehow survives. But in the process a monster was born. Now whenever he gets angry he grows bigger and stronger until he is no longer Bruce Banner. He becomes The Hulk
Eric Bana was "anxious and paranoid about doing a good job as Bruce, and I knew that the rest was out of my hands, and I was quite comfortable with that." See more »
The Raptor that the Hulk hitches a ride on appears to reach escape velocity and drift away into space right when the Hulk passes out from lack of oxygen, although whether it's just sloppy editing is hard to tell. An F-22 couldn't even reach close to that altitude before its engines would stall from lack of oxygen, let alone go fast enough in a vertical climb to reach space. See more »
The closing credits are contained in comic book panels and speech bubbles. See more »
German theatrical version was cut to secure a "Not under 12" rating. Removed were the torturing of Hulk with electro shocks in the Army camp and the death of the frog. The DVD contains the complete version. See more »
almost got me teary, and frustrated me at the same time
It's late, so I'll just bullet point my thoughts.
1. Hulk as CGI - works most of the time, some of the time it doesn't. Nobody can argue with that. But, like Gollum, the expressions of the face and the fantastic body language made you WANT to believe. Unlike Gollum, some of the shots just don't work at all. The big CG breakthrough for this movie - the manipulation of real settings was just SPECTACULAR. I fully belived that San Fran was getting torn apart.
2. Too long. Cut a half hour.
3. The comic book style - hit and miss.
4. Most of my friends hated the movie, yet.....
5. ..... I found many of the scenes to be incredibly moving, which took me by surprise. Though I secretly hoped that the Hulk would just be ICE Storm with Hulk in the Joan Allen role, I have to admit that Lee pulled off one helluva feat. I sympathized more for the hulk than the entire MATRIX cast (of both movies) combined. And I'll take a faulted movie with emotion over almost any big budget vehicle any day.
