Hulk

Hulk ★★½ 2003 (PG-13)

Hulk SMASH! Hulk explore Oedipal relationship. Hulk confused! Scientist Bruce Banner (Bana) gets zapped by gamma rays during an experiment gone wrong, and finds out that it's harder than ever to control his temper. Ang Lee classes up the summer superhero blockbuster genre by going beyond the special effects and action (but he doesn't leave ‘em behind, either) to explore Banner's troubled relationships with girlfriend/colleague Betty (Connolly) and wacked-out former scientist dad David (Nolte). The extra depth may be jarring for the target fanboy audience, but it should play better to people looking for a little thought with their thrills. Solid performances by Bana, Connolly, and Elliot as Betty's aloof, gungho military man father help Lee pull off the more angstridden moments. 138m/C VHS, DVD, HD DVD . US Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Josh(ua) Lucas, Sam Elliott, Nick Nolte, Paul Kersey, Cara Buono, Mike Erwin, Celia Weston; Cameos: Lou Ferrigno, Stan Lee; D: Ang Lee; W: James Schamus, Michael France, John Turman; C: Frederick Elmes; M: Danny Elfman.
