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 lifeform 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.
Bruce Banner, a genetics researcher with a tragic past, suffers an accident that causes him to transform into a raging green monster when he gets angry.
Sorry I had to say it, I just had to. The problem with the Cgi in the Hulk and most other movies is that it just is not believable. The hulk looked like a cartoon character that was tacked in. The scenes where he was jumping, well a little boy in the row behind me summed it all up. "Look Mommy, Hulks Flying"
Certain critics have attacked Ang Lee's adaptation of the Incredible Hulk comics and quite rightly so. After all, how dare an action-packed summer blockbuster contain plot and character depth, not to mention profound statements about anger and the relationships between fathers and their children.
Ang Lee has never made a less than very good film and in my view, Hulk is no exception. It is an extremely ambitious picture both visually and in terms of content.
The basic story from the comics concerns scientist Bruce Banner, who is exposed to dangerous gamma radiation causing him to transform into a gigantic Hulk every time he gets angry. The plot of the film however, goes considerably deeper, with Banner's abusive and possibly insane father being responsible for his son's unusual powers. Add to this repressed childhood memories, a complex web of relationships between all the characters, and it makes for quite an intelligent film. Of course it has the requisite action and explosions, but for once they seem to support rather than dominate the story.
Eric Bana plays Bruce Banner and has clearly been cast because he doesn't look like a movie star. This was a brave decision and works reasonably well in the film's favour. Jennifer Connelly is quite good as the love interest. On the other hand, Nick Nolte as Banner's father is outstanding. The direction from Lee is stunning, especially in his use of wipes and split screens, giving the constant impression you are watching a moving comic strip. The special effects are excellent (if a little too bizarre at times) and Danny Elfman contributes his best music score in years.
My main criticism is the film has virtually no humour. If Steven Spielberg could invest a film as serious as Schindler's List with moments of comedy, then surely a few laughs wouldn't go amiss in the Hulk. It takes itself far too seriously and adding comedy would have enabled the audience to suspend disbelief better, as well as enhancing the human drama.
Despite this, I liked the film a great deal. It's an unusually different summer blockbuster and deserves praise for that. It also has an interestingly ambivalent attitude to anger. On the one hand anger is shown as a great emotional release, enabling Banner to confront his repressed memories, and on the other it shows it to be destructive as the Hulk goes on his rampage.
If the film is ultimately judged a failure, then it's one of the most interesting failures of recent years. The Hulk has a split personality: Two-thirds come from director Ang Lee, one-third from '60s comic book creator Stan Lee. In an accident at a laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, research scientist Bruce Banner (Eric Bana) is exposed to gamma radiation and nanomeds and somehow survives but discovers that he turns into a hulking, green monster whenever he gets angry. Pursued by his father (Nick Nolte) who wants to continue experimenting on Bruce, by U.S. Army General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross (Sam Elliott) who believes that Bruce is a threat to national security, and by Major Glenn Talbot (Josh Lucas) who wants to profit from the Hulk's strength and regenerative ability, Bruce tries to control his anger, prevent the transformation, and simply stay alive. The Hulk is a fictional character in Marvel Comic series, The Incredible Hulk, created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby. The screenplay for Hulk was written by American screenwriters James Schamus, John Turman, and Michael France. Bruce and his lab partner (and girlfriend) Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelly), daughter of General Ross, were experimenting with nanomeds, tiny lifeforms that they hoped could be used to heal wounds. Unfortunately, everything (e.g., frogs) on which they've tested the nanomeds have ended up exploding. Bruce is the only one to have survived exposure. When Bruce's father David, also a research scientist whose genetic experiments were shut down when it was learned that he was experimenting upon himself, realized that his wife was pregnant, he feared what he may have passed to his child. Banner realized that his son had to be tested, and the results showed that Bruce had the potential to not be completely human (in his eyes). As the Hulk becomes increasingly enraged, he increases in size. Some of the special features on the original DVD and the Blu-ray/DVD explain it a bit. Ang Lee wanted to reflect that idea, that the more rage Bruce feels, the greater his power becomes. Lying unconscious at the bottom of the lake, Hulk survives the gamma bomb, but David is destroyed. As he rises to the surface, Bruce remembers his father as the man who lovingly tucked him into bed when he was four years old, kissing him and wishing him a good sleep. One year later, Betty is working in the lab when she gets a phone call from her father. He tells her that some loonies have reporting seeing something green and asks her if, by some chance Bruce survived the explosion and she found out about him, would she tell him. "No," Betty replies, adding that she loved Bruce and that she's the last person she would want Bruce to contact. Far off in a South American rain forest, Bruce is shown working as a doctor in a medical camp. When some soldiers attempt to steal their medical supplies, Bruce confronts them with the warning in Spanish, "You're making me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry!" In the final scene, as the camera pans through the trees, the Hulk's roar can be heard. Yes, in one scene we see two security guards walking towards the camera and having a conversation. The old guy with a mustache doing most of the talking is Stan Lee, who is the Hulk's comic book creator. The other guy, the big guy, is Lou Ferrigno, who played the Hulk in the 1970s TV series. There are also multiple references to the comic books. General Ross's helicopter is named "T. Ross", referencing his comic book nickname; Hulk's first appearance is grey rather than green, referencing his first comic book incarnation; the character "Benny", who appears in the comic books, is mentioned in a conversation between Bruce and Betty; Bruce's father's name is changed to David Banner, which was Bruce's name in the TV series; and David Banner takes on several attributes of Hulk's comic-book nemeses throughout the film. No, but it was originally going to be part of a trilogy. James Schamus revealed in 2014 the unfinished sequel took place at a Native American reserve. Since the financial failure of the first film, it has been subtly rebooted as The Incredible Hulk (2008) (2008), which picks up from an unmade alternative origin story (i.e. Bruce is already the Hulk in The Incredible Hulk) and which has launched as the second installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. a5c7b9f00b
