When they announced that they were going to release Hulk I had big expectations, this character has a possibilities and it could be a great show of action. But it was a let down. 
 
Everything starts with Dr Banner (Erica Bana) suffering an accident when experimenting with Gamma radiation, when he wakes up he realizes has something is different. Until here the story is how we know it but as the story goes on everything turns confusing and psychedelic. Dr Banner's father (Nick Nolte) knows that his son had an accident with Gamma radiation and tries to protect him, something that is not very clear because we see a fight of dogs infected with radiation gamma fighting with Hulk. The best moments of the film are at the end when Hulk manages to escape of a secret base and General Ross (Sam Elliott), orders to catch him at any cost even if that means to the loss of an innocent life.
 
There are moments that images of colors and different shapes appear with no explanation, or we have moments that take us to flashbacks of Dr Banner's infancy suffering a traumatic experience. We have to wait for almost one hour to see Hulk, and one hour is a lot of time. The story doesn't leave clear if the accident at the laboratory is what turns Dr Banner into Hulk or if it was the experiments his father made when he was working for the militaries.  
 
Director Ang Lee wasted a good chance to make a great story with actors like Eric Bana, Sam Elliott, Jennifer Connelly and Nick Nolte. It was great to see Stan Lee walking beside Lou Ferrigno, actor who played Hulk in the 1970'-1980's TV show.

    Should you desire it, you may find this presentation of the Hulk to be rather compelling and intriguing in its deviations from the comics, but ultimately, "Hulk" is an edgy and lackluster drama that only engages the titular character from a safe distance.  The Premise A laboratory accident brings out the monster that was buried within an emotionally withdrawn scientist Bruce Banner (Eric Bana) from the moment he was conceived by his psychotic father (Nick Nolte). Following this disaster, Banner ...
