Trivia

When the Hulk leaps to the desert right before he fights some tanks, the shot shows him seemingly hovering in mid-air for a few seconds. In the comics, specifically in 'The Incredible Hulk' Vol. 1 No. 3, the Hulk briefly had the power to fly. See more »

Goofs

(at around 17 mins) When Talbot first talks to Betty as she's entering the building, the screen cuts in half as per usual throughout the movie. In one shot, Betty's hand is on the upper part of her pocketbook strap. In the other shot, it is not. The two shots are not in sync. See more »

Everything turned out to be too bad ...
4 June 2018 | by BiiivALSee all my reviews

Few people actually realized that this is not exactly a superhero action movie. More precisely, he is not superhero. After all, the Hulk has never really been a hero. Always in exile and persecution of enemies.

And it was very skillfully shown by Eng Lee. He created what Christopher Nolan later did. As it turned out, the audience was not ready for the drama "about comics." Maybe it was simply not worth shooting this film by Eng Lee, although he portrayed the perfect drama. He showed the Hulk quite the other side.

Personally, I am a sincere fan of this film, like comics in general. All as always waited for a passing summer "militancy", which they are feeding us up to now and will do it again. Everything turned out to be too bad ...

Eric Bana did everything right, that would not say critics. He showed all the experiences of the hero as it was not in the comics, but as it would be in real life.

Jennifer Connelly in my opinion did not show anything, except for some tears. Bad.

Nick Nolty stood out most of all. He truly played the villain and father of Bruce Banner. The brightest figure in the film.

I appreciate only the game of actors, since this is not an action.

I'll put the film as a first-rate drama created by a first-rate director who later created the best drama in general (Brokeback Mountain):
