Movie synopsis
THE HULK, adapted by Ang Lee (CROUCHING TIGER/HIDDEN DRAGON, THE ICE STORM) from the Marvel comic book series, stars Eric Bana as Bruce Banner, the tormented scientist whose temper periodically transforms him into a raging green monster. Fellow scientist and Hulk-love-interest Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelly), shares a strange connection with Banner--both have abstract childhood nightmares that hint at a shared dark past. The missing pieces of the puzzle are revealed when Banner's unstable, mad-scientist father David (Nick Nolte) appears out of the blue, followed by Betty's father Ross (Sam Elliot), a military cowboy. Banner is ultimately trying to understand what it is that makes his strange and unpredictable metamorphosis occur, while his outbursts distract him, leading him out into the streets of San Francisco, to the Golden Gate Bridge, and on a tour of the American west's national parks where he unleashes his anger in violent tantrums. Posing a threat to the country that is treated like a natural disaster, the hulk attracts the attention of the military. They respond by chasing the hulk with helicopters, machine guys, and even heavy artillery, as he bounds away in mighty leaps, trying to escape. The CGI work used in creating the hulk is funny and convincing, and the gorgeous landscape photography makes his presence all the more amazing. A vibrant color scheme adds to the film's visual thrills, split-screen editing breaks up the slower scenes, and the music by composer Danny Elfman perfectly punctuates the contrast between the soft love story and wild action sequences. While parts of the film recall the introspection of FRANKENSTEIN, the outrageous crowd-pleasing monster-military chases hearken back to KING KONG and the GODZILLA movies.

The Hulk (2003, DVD

Hulk (also known as The Hulk) is a 2003 superhero film based on the fictional Marvel Comics character of the same name. Ang Lee directed the film, which stars Eric Bana as Dr. Bruce Banner, as well as Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliott, Nick Nolte and Josh Lucas. The film explores the origins of the Hulk, which is mainly attributed to Banner's father's experiments on himself, and passing these genes on to his son.

Development for the film started as far back as 1990. The film was at one point to be directed by Joe Johnston and then Jonathan Hensleigh. More scripts had been written by Hensleigh, John Turman, Michael France, Zak Penn, J. J. Abrams, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, Michael Tolkin and David Hayter before Ang Lee and James Schamus' involvement. Hulk was shot mostly in California, primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area. The film was released with mixed reviews, and was a box office disappointment. Marvel Studios rebooted in 2008 with The Incredible Hulk. Hulk earned $61.2 million in DVD sales, bringing its total film gross to $306,560,480

There isn’t a lot of cinematic material to work with...

Review For: The Hulk (DVD, 2003, 2-Disc Set, Full Frame)

Not too far removed from his success with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), Director Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Brokeback Mountain) couldn’t have chosen a more difficult undertaking than 2003’s box office disappointment—(based on how much they actually spent to make this film) The Hulk.

Seriously, there really isn’t a lot of cinematic material to work with when it comes to a character such as The Hulk that usually focuses on the most basic tenets of needs such as: anger, safety, love, and fear. In addition, the concept of being gifted with seemingly unearthly strength but at the same time cursed with intelligence so feeble is sure to glue patrons of all ages in their seats.

However, Lee may have taken this as a challenge and shook things up by doing away with The Hulk’s crude comic origins (that of Bruce Banner being belted by gamarays while attempting to save the life of civilian Rick Jones) in lieu of a more modern approach with elements such as genetic experimentation, gamarays and nanomites, domestic violence, and repressed emotions that combine to bring this cinematic and computer generated version of Marvel’s dark-haired green goliath to life.

I don’t buy it.

Green is still Green, whichever way you look at it.

This Must Have Hurt for Big Hulk Fans!

I am not a big comics fan. I do like some of Stan Lee's work but not a big Hulk fan. I also have loved most of Ang Lee's work like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Sense and Sensibility and The Wedding Banquet. Whic is why I do not understand what went so horribly wrong?

The actors are great - Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Nick Nolte, Sam Elliott. With Satn Lee writing and Ang Lee directing you would have thought - yes, a beautifully shot movie with sharp witty dialogue laced with sadness and sorrow. Instead we get CGI up the wazoo! I think CGI is great, don't get me wrong. But too much of a good thing is...well, Hulk. It overpowers the movie in that all you can think about is how much like CGI everything looks.

Cannot recommend this film. Maybe if you are a really big fan of Hulk and will not be crushed if it does not meet your expectations. then, maybe this is for you.

Why the bad press? Confusion of reality vs. comic-dom

Despite the up and down nature of every other review I have seen of this movie, HULK really does what it claims it will do when telling the story of Bruce Banner and his transformation into that angry green beast of a man--the Hulk. I had a hard time understanding why Ebert and Roeper could give it two thumbs up and yet the movie did not make a "hit" with audiences say, like that web-slinging guy we all know about. However, HULK isn't Spiderman, it wasn't depicted in the same way, and for that I am thankful that all movies I have enjoyed do not have to be clones of one another. The actors' performances were solid, the "hinting" phrases ("you wouldn't like me when I'm angry") poking solidly at the precursor television show, and of course dramatic CGI effects made this movie as much of an amusement park ride/thriller on canvas as it was a movie blockbuster. I don't know why people said it wasn't any good, but I did love it, and as an avid comic book reader from childhood even into my early adult years, this movie was kind of a dream come true much like when Batman came out in 1989--a modern re-telling of a story that seems to never die, the underdog fighting for his survival, fighting for what is right, and taking it in the chops from everyone around him for doing just that. If you are looking for rational explanations on how a good guy turns into a great big gnarly green monster and scientific evidence that makes this movie just "so believable", forget that. That isn't what this is about, It's essentially escape fodder to take your mind off of tax season, your wife leaving you, the dog getting hit by the car, etc. Almost like a good country song. Or maybe a nice Pink Floyd album and a beer in your hand. HAHA! ANYHOW, enjoy it for the escape that it is and you won't be disappointed.

I LIKE IT

I know many people hate this film, but it is hard for me to not like it. It is beautifully filmed and a lot of substance is added in what could have easily been just a "Hulk SMASH" movie. I enjoyed the wonderful scenery of the Utah desert where some of the best fight scenes happen. I do agree the movie could have stood to be a little shorter and it does drag in parts, but otherwise, this is a movie in which the director decided not to just look at it as just some comic book movie for little boys. All the actors are perfectly cast, especially Elliot as Gen. Ross. And I was very happy to see the risks Lee was willing to take to make this film so much more than it could have been in the wrong hands (Daredevil anyone?). I hope that this film eventually gets the recognition it trly deserves.
