Trivia

According to Screenwriter Zak Penn, this film was more similar to comic book writer Bruce Jones's Hulk concepts, and The Incredible Hulk (1978) television series. See more »

Goofs

(at around 8 mins) When Bruce Banner's blood drops into an empty bottle in the factory, it is shown streaked down the inside of the neck of the bottle starting at the very top. However, none of the blood is on the outside of the bottle. This is impossible, as the bottle neck is narrow at the top and gradually expands in circumference, the blood could not have contacted the inside surface of the bottle neck without also splashing onto the top and down the outside of the bottle neck.

Don't make me hungry...
16 June 2008 | by 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
