The Hulk (2003) should have been an exciting and fun, complex and entertaining, psychological-drama, action, adventure thriller. About the power to defend yourself against bullies and evil monsters and the supernatural ability to grow bigger and stronger. In the beginning of the film Bruce Banner`s mentally unstable but genius mad scientist father David Banner is experimenting on cellular regeneration, strengthening the immune system and achieving biological immortality . His research is shut down by the military and then he experiments on himself and passes down a mutation or genetic alteration down to his son Bruce. David banner is sent to prison for 30 years for trying to blow up the army base and for accidently killing his wife. Many years later Bruce banner and his girlfriend Betty Ross is experimenting with gamma radiation and Nano-med technology to repair cellular damage and to find the cure for all diseases. Then an accident in the lab exposes Bruce banner to very high levels of gamma radiation that unleash the awesome power in the cells of his body that transform him into the Hulk when he gets emotional or angry. The genetic alteration + Nano-med technology +gamma radiation= Bruce Banner transforming into the Hulk. The genetic alteration that was passed down to him from his mad scientist father protects Bruce Banner from the gamma radiation from killing him and the Nano-Med accelerated healing and growth technology that killed all the lab animals. Bruce Banner explosively bouncing Talbott off his chest when he is in the process of changing into the hulk. The Hulk fighting the army in the desert and the hulk fighting the monsters dogs to save betty ross and also when his father transforms into the towering being of electricity known as the real absorbing man in the end of the film is mind-blowing and exciting. The Arabian music and visual effects is beautiful,moving and amazing, but the movie is boring and dull because of all the depressing human drama and father and son Greek Tragedy part of the strory .
Marvel Comics, director Ang Lee, and even the cast took some serious flak from all over for this movie. But if you just take it for what it is - a movie about The Hulk - and go into it hoping for some fun and action, you'll get more than your money's worth. Marvel has re-booted the character, so this film will forever stand alone as a one-time look at the world of The Hulk from the perspective of one creative team. This is exactly how comic books work, with new creative teams coming and going all the time. Sam Elliott and Nick Nolte, as always, basically play themselves and are as fun to watch as always. Jennifer Connelly is likable and tough. Eric Bana is a good Dr. Banner. Technology hadn't quite advanced to the point Ang Lee needed to make his version of The Hulk come to life quite like he envisioned, it seems, but that's OK too. It's still miles ahead of clay-mation or a guy in full-body make-up. 'Hulk' may not be perfect, but it is a good way to spend 2 hours.
Ang Lee is a wonderful and imaginative director, and his adaptation of The Incredible Hulk is wonderful for the time it was made. Some may be uncomfortable with the child and wife abuse show in the movie, but when the Hulk makes his appearance, he's far stronger and determined than the next movie in the series, and Eric Bana is a far better Bruce Banner than the emaciated Ed Norton. Jennifer Connelly also is a far better Betty Ross, and is far easier on the eyes than the next one (don't even recall her name)...and speaking of eyes! Connelly's eyes are gorgeous. Lee's treatment of the Hulk was fine, but his emerald green skin was a bit much. His ability to leap and take on Army aircraft makes the next Hulk look like a wimp. The monster also had far more character. Frankly, I like Mark Ruffalo's Hulk just fine, but to date this is the best Hulkmovie going.
Stan Lee wanted the Hulk to be a Frankenstein-type monster. Not so large but very strong and scary, but without the evil brain that the Frakenstein monster had. Apparently no one wanted such a monster for a movie, although I would have been all for it.
This was the first Marvel movie version of The Hulk. It was directed by Ang Lee and featured Eric Bana as Bruce Banner, Jennifer Connelly as Betty Ross, and Sam Elliott as General Thunderbolt Ross. The film was a new version of the Hulk origins story. It begins with Bruce Banner’s father experimenting with Gamma radiation, which was passed along to his son Bruce who also becomes a scientist. He takes up Gamma research as well, which leads him to become the Hulk. Like many science fiction-fantasy stories the theme is that when humans mess with nature bad things result. The problem was it didn’t have the right balance between the characters and the Hulk.
The first thing that hits the viewer was Lee attempting to relay the story to the audience like a comic book. That meant all the transitions had the look of a comic book with split screens, fades left and right, up and down, etc. This was the first and only superhero movie to do that, and it was a nice nod to the comic fans.
The problem with The Hulk was that it spent far too much time on the people, and not enough on the Hulk. First, there’s Banner and Ross’s research. Then there’s the government interference, etc. There’s Banner’s crazy father still carrying out experiments, etc. etc. etc. Lee interpreted the story as a human one about Banner struggling to control the beast inside of him, and the government trying to control him. That meant even when the Hulk showed up he was subordinated to Banner. That’s not why people watch superhero movies however. If you go see a comic book movie you don’t want to spend most of the time watching the heroes alter ego, you want to see the superhero. Ang didn’t get that.
I grew up in the 70s watching the hulk on TV and I have enjoyed the modern Hulkmovie links with Advengers and Thor Ragnarok. I live enjoyed the hulk in all of these. However thia movies stands out only because 'IT SUCKS SO Badly' great actors and cgi, but it just doesn't work sadly
4.0 out of 5 starsNot incredible but still great in places.

This comic book adaptation came before all the recent Marvel crackers but it did look amazing back in 2003 especially on the big screen where i first seen it. Looking back now it does pale a lot to the likes of The Avengers,Iron Man and Captain America as well as some of the Spiderman and X Men films but this is still a underrated movie with some unique ideas for this type of film and some really top notch acting. It takes a while to see the Hulk or even action of any kind but it is really awesome when it arrives with our rampaging hero squashing mutant dogs,throwing tanks about and biting into missiles like they were breadsticks. As i said the acting and ideas are very ambitious for a comic book film but it works even if veteran actor Nick Nolte is a bit wooden these days and Josh Lucas was under used but Eric Bana was fantastic as Bruce Banner and Jennifer Connolly is brilliant and beautiful as love interest Betty Ross. Not as good a film as The Incredible Hulk(even though this film has better acting)and certainly not as good as The Avengers Hulk but still very underrated and deserves more credit than what it normally receives.

Roller Coaster of a Film. Excellent Bluray transfer. Excellent Soundtrack. Amazing what some people will do to their kids. Action scenes suitably loud. Give your Home Cinema a Workout. Great for a Saturday Night in with Mates.

I enjoy both Hulk and The Incredible Hulk movies, but I enjoy Hulk emensley more, as it is more about the science and the emotional/psycholohgical aspect's, where The Incredible Hulk is more about the action. Both are enjoyable, but if I had to pick one over the other it would be Hulk.
