Desperate to find a cure for his problem, Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) has hidden himself away in Brazil, only to find himself driven back to America by the evil General Ross (William Hurt). Ross is still trying to find and destroy Banner, in his effort to develop a super soldier. The plot thickens when Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), a crazed combat veteran who sees the formula as a way to make him young again, turns into a beast himself. Hunting for his anonymous benefactor of a scientist and still under siege by General Ross, Banner turns to his long lost girlfriend Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), the daughter of General Ross. Banner is conflicted because he knows that anyone who is close to him is in danger from the beast that lies dormant within him. Aren't we all? Yes, the story is pretty predictable and even the CGI scenes of The Hulk in action are disappointing. This is a case of "I told you that story to tell you this one". It's all a set-up for the next Hulk movie where General Ross teams up with Iron Man mogel Tony Stark (Robert Downey jr.). So if you're a fan of Marvel comic superheroes, you should see this movie in order to get the background for the next one. Otherwise, don't bother.
