What A Marvel! Ang Lee’s Hulk [2003] by Bea Harper

Hulk_movie

Dir.: Ang Lee

Starring: Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliot and Nick Nolte

I found this one to be a worthy addition to the wide and varied lore of Bruce/Hulk. It’s not what people were expecting, but it serves as a fine allegory for the power of human negativity and the redemption of a willing soul. Ang Lee made a peculiar beast for sure, but there is only so much a film based purely on the Hulk ruining somebody’s day can stand before it collapses and in my eyes, it worked. The character of Bruce Banner is a tragic yet at the same time optimistic one, and this is what this film attempts most valiantly to focus on. It may not be entirely successful, but it was a damn admirable try. And wow! His pants actually SPLIT!
