The film is an origin story on how Bruce Banner became the Hulk. While performing an experiment, Bruce accidentally exposes himself to a massive amount of Gamma radiation.
Instead of killing him, the radiation gives him the ability to turn into a giant green monster whenever he’s stressed or angry. This leads him into conflict with General Ross and the military, which view him as a threat and David Banner, his father, who has gamma-induced abilities of his own and harbors a dark secret from Bruce’s path.

Different from its counterparts, the movie takes a unique approach into exploring the psyche of the Hulk, which gives it a pretty interesting twist.
The movie received mixed reviews from the critics, partially due to its failed marketing campaign. The movie was marketed as something for the kids but upon watching, there’s no doubt it is for audiences who appreciate deeper and layered structures in movies. Ang Lee can be accused of being too Shakespearean, but if you are a fan of movies like Batman, then you’d appreciate the darker undertones in the movie.
