The classic comic book makes its big-screen debut under the imaginative direction of Ang Lee. Researcher Dr. Bruce Banner's (Eric Bana) failed experiments cause him to mutate into a powerful and savage green-skinned hulk when he loses control of his emotions. And the only person who seems to stand by him is his girlfriend, Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelly), proving that love is indeed blind. Nick Nolte co-stars as Banner's father.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

We'll always wonder how the film would have been with a director who was a fan. (It probably would have been more fun.) Lee draws out the pain of the character, who has always been one of the most cursed of Marvel superheroes: Until the conflict between father and son gets externalized (and ridiculous) at the end, it makes for intriguing drama. And the split-screen effects gracefully convey the wild visuals of comics. It would be nice to see some of the action, though; three of the four action scenes take place in darkness.
