I must note that it does not rank on par with some of the truly great superhero movies that have been filmed in recent years. It is certainly not on par with Sam Raimi's "Spiderman" or Tim Burton's "Batman", but then, the Hulk has never had the following or commercial popularity of these other characters.
Much credit should be given to Ang Lee, whose vision of this well-known, (if never fully conceived) character remains truly to his own directoral style. Bruce Banner (Eric Bana), son of David Banner (one of many "tips of the hat" to the original television series), grows up without his real parents, raised instead in a foster home. Ambitious and bright, he pursues a career in advanced science, attempting to develop a new "nano-technology" that will enable people to rapidly heal. Aided by Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelly), all seems to be going along fine until a mechanical malfunction results in Bruce's exposure to gama radiation. This exposure unleashes the Hulk, whose presence in his body has been there since before his birth, when his father (Nick Nolte) performed an experiment on himself and inadvertantly passed his genetically enhanced and altered DNA onto his son. Now unleashed, Bruce Banner becomes consumed by the anger and rage of the parents that abandoned himand thegovernment that would use him as a weapon.
And, as Bruce admonishes, "Don't make me angry...you wouldn't like me when I'm angry..."
For it is through his anger that he is transformed. Ang Lee's monster, far more massive even than Lou Ferrigno's Hulk of the T.V. series, was created using some of the most advanced CGI to date.Read more ›
But for reasons that will forever escape me, somebody DID let Lee direct a movie about the classic comic book hero, the Hulk. And it is a disaster -- a ponderous, dull psychodrama entirely devoted to the Hulk's daddy issues. It's a prime example of how you can have all the best actors, but it does nothing if the director is all wrong. Seriously, who hired Lee for this? And what drugs were they on?
Years ago, scientist David Banner (Paul Kersey, and later Nick Nolte) performed strange experiments on himself involving genetic material from various sea creatures. He inadvertently passed this mutation on to his baby son Bruce -- and when his project was shut down, he blew up the lab and tried to kill his son.
Remember that from the comic books?
Present day: Bruce (Eric Bana) is a bionuclear scientist who is working with nanotechnology, along with his ex-girlfriend Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelly). But then a lab accident douses Bruce with gamma radiation -- and that night, he transforms into a massive green monster. Unfortunately this attracts the newly-freed David's attention, and he begins trying to find a way to get the Hulk's powers for himself. First goal: endanger Betty.
As Bruce struggles with his not-very-scary alter ego he also has to contend with Betty's fanatical father, General Ross (Sam Elliott) and the sleazy Major Talbot (Josh Lucas), who wants to somehow extract Bruce's power. But the biggest threat is Bruce's crazy hobo dad, who is determined to gain all of the Hulk's power for himself...Read more ›
Eric Bana was just incredible as Bruce Banner, and his features were put to good use once he became the Hulk (something the "Incredible" sequel forgot to do, which greatly hurt the movie, but I digress). The special effects were very well made at the time, but this being 2014, they aged and by no small amount. Nevertheless, the story and plot advances at a nice enough pace, and the editing makes it its mission for us to know it's from a comic book source with angles and panels tilting up and down the screen, left to right, pans, and many other devices that defy the imagination and give the film a rythm of its own.
Special features are a bit more in number compared to the Blu-ray, so if you're idea is to buy the BD, better keep this as there seems to be several featurettes missing in transfer.
If you are easily put out by new things, then maybe give Hulk a rent, but completists and the more adventurous cinephiles may want to blind buy this.
Bruce Banner's alter ego can jump a thousand feet into the air, run faster than a cheetah, have immunity to bullets, instantly heal minor injuries and grow larger and stronger the more madder Hulk becomes! The best scene was a close-up shot during Hulk's second transformation when he gains so much muscle mass, the shirt he's wearing bursts apart in half instantly! Just awesome! Gotta love them rippling muscles!!!
American bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno plays a bit part as one of the security guards here. He's the same guy who originally starred as the green monster in The Incredible Hulk TV series that debuted on national television during the late 70s. I remember watching the show for a short time a few years back on Sun TV and thought it was really cool.
The 2-Disc Special Edition DVD is just loaded with tons of great bonus features you shouldn't miss out on!
I loved this whole film and would highly recommend Hulk to anyone! It's way better than the 2008 remake, that's for sure! Pick it up today!

I received it in good order - I have always liked those comic book heros
I prefer to purchase DVD's because I can't always watch a movie in it's entirety in one sitting... Read more
Bon film, visant un publique un peu plus masculin, par ces effets spéciaux et le muscle, mais rejoignant tout de même l'humanité et un peu de romantisme.Published on Jan. 23 2013 by Danielle Boudrias
