When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Bruce Banner, a brilliant scientist with a cloudy past about his family, is involved in an accident in his laboratory causing him to become exposed to gamma radiation and Nanomeds (a tiny life form that is supposed to heal wounds, but has killed everything with which they have made contact). Confused and curious about his survival, Banner discovers that since the accident, whenever he becomes angry, he transforms into a giant green monster destroying everything in sight in an act of rage. Bruce's mysterious past and the answer to why the radiation had this effect becomes revealed to him as his birth father David Banner intervenes with hopes to continue experimenting on him.Written by
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 two men operating the top-mounted machine guns on the (fake) Abrams tanks would have been the tank commander and the loader. The loader, however, never drops back into the tank to load the main gun, yet the main guns on the tanks fire at the Hulk several times when they encounter each other. In addition to that, as tankers are running away from one tank after losing the turret, only two of them are seen, instead of the 4 men in the crew of an Abrams tank. 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 »
This was a very good stand alone Hulk movie. I grew up watching The Incredible Hulk 70s series and I will always get a reminder from that when watching a Hulk movie.
Eric Bana played a good Bruce Banner along with the supporting cast. The score was very Hitchcock and scientific.
I wasn't too keen on the comic book styled cinematography but I got used to this through the film.
I enjoyed this film due to it's acting, story and developments. I didn't like the action as much, I liked the locations.
I couldn't see this movie getting a sequel as this was aimed for a new audience and was a first theatrical try-out for a Hulk movie. I would recommend this movie to those that are fans of the series and to Hulk in general.
