Hulk (2003) ((EXCLUSIVE))

The Hulk is rare among Marvel superheroes in that his powers are a curse, not an advantage. When rage overcomes Dr. Bruce Banner and he turns into a green monster many times his original size, it is not to fight evil or defend the American way, but simply to lash out at his tormentors. Like the Frankenstein stories that are its predecessors, "Hulk" is a warning about the folly of those who would toy with the secrets of life. It is about the anguish of having powers you did not seek and do not desire. "What scares me the most," Banner tells his only friend, Betty Ross, "is that when it happens, when it comes over me, when I totally lose control, I like it." Ang Lee's "Hulk" (the movie's title drops "the") is the most talkative and thoughtful recent comic book adaptation. It is not so much about a green monster as about two wounded adult children of egomaniacs. Banner (Eric Bana) was fathered by a scientist (Nick Nolte) who has experimented on his own DNA code, and passed along genes that are transformed by a lab accident into his son's hulkhood. Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelly) is his research partner; they were almost lovers, but it didn't work out, and she speaks wryly of "my inexplicable fascination with emotionally distant men." Her cold father is General Ross (Sam Elliott), filled with military bluster and determined to destroy the Hulk.

Hulk (2003)

Today, it's all about Ang Lee's Hulk (2003). It's so good. It's SO GOOD. It's so much better than The Incredible Hulk (2008). Yeah, that's right. Ang Lee rules. Nick Nolte is off the chain in this. And Josh Lucas has one of the best death shots ever. Also, Jennifer Connelly. Also, Hulk dogs. So good.

(We start off with a parody of the intro of the TV show The Incredible Hulk (1978). The red sign "DANGER" starts blinking as the Nostalgia Critic puts the Hulk (2003) Blu-ray in a PS4. As he watches it, he grows more and more angry)

This limited edition steelbook includes Hulk (2003) on both 4K UHD and standard blu-ray and features striking newly-commissioned artwork inspired by the transformation of Bruce Banner into the Hulk. This is the first release of Hulk in 4K UHD in the UK. The steelbook includes 4 glossy artcards and a die-cut slipcase, showing elements of the steelbook underneath.

Maybe also the circumstances where also against Hulk. Xmen 2 came out the same year, Spiderman 2 just came out a year early, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Matrix Reloaded, Pirates of the Caribbean, Terminator 3, League of extraordinary Gentleman, Finding Nemo, Kill Bill, American Pie 3, Last Samurai.... And way more came out during that same time. All that can tell us that people didn't care, or awaited something different, because Hulk (2003) doesn't fit either of those. Also another factor was, some awaited something more to the tune of Bill Bixby's Hulk.

It was probably the humaneness with which the doomed central relationship of Oscar-winner Brokeback Mountain was handled which led the New York Times to call its director "the ubiquitous liberal humanist Ang Lee". But what, exactly, did they mean? Certainly Lee has been ever-present this year, but 'liberal humanist?' It's a phrase which smacks of damning with faint praise, invoking a kind of limp passivity in contrast to the rugged, macho individualists of Hollywood lore. No one ever dared call Sam Peckinpah a liberal humanist. At least not to his face. Scouring Lee's record in search of some shared quality that would define his humanism, liberal or otherwise, doesn't really clarify things. To be sure, some of his films are sensitive, humane, thoughtful explorations of the all too human travails faced by their protagonists: The Ice Storm (1997) and Eat Drink Man Woman (1994) come to mind, but Hulk (2003)? Granted Bruce Banner has obvious personal difficulties, turning green when angry, ripping all his good shirts, that sort of thing, but it's hardly Hamlet. The Civil War drama Ride With The Devil (1999) was an elegant variation on a familiar genre theme, while Sense and Sensibility (1995) was, well, sense and sensibility. As for the hugely acclaimed but deathly boring Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) it was little more than a kung fu flick for the Merchant/Ivory crowd.

He performed with Jennifer Connelly and Eric Bana in Ang Lee's Hulk (2003)_. He was in Ron Howard's Oscar-winning A Beautiful Mind (2001) with Russell Crowe. Plus, he starred opposite Reese Witherspoon in the Walt Disney Company's smash hit Sweet Home Alabama (2002). Other credits include Wonderland (2003), The Deep End (2001), American Psycho (2000), Session 9 (2001), and You Can Count on Me (2000). 041b061a72
