Once again, though, the film is defined by the strengths and weaknesses of the source material. While Bruce is working on anger management, you may find yourself working on boredom management, and matching his rate of success.
Iron Man has more wit and style, but Hulk is a neat thrill ride with an intelligent script by Zak Penn and smart, well-paced direction by the French director of The Transporter series, Louis Leterrier.

Academy Award® nominee Edward Norton stars as scientist Bruce Banner, a man who has been living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote to the unbridled force of rage within him: the Hulk. But when the military masterminds who dream of exploiting his powers force him back to civilization, he finds himself coming face to face with his most formidable foe: the Abomination –a nightmarish beast of pure aggression whose powers match the Hulk’s own! Also starring Liv Tyler, Oscar® nominee Tim Roth, and Oscar® winner William Hurt, The Incredible Hulk is “steeped in action and spectacular special effects” (Claudia Puig, USA TODAY) and delivers a mind-blowing final showdown that can only be summed up with one word...INCREDIBLE!

The Visual Effects Experts based the Hulk and Abomination's movements on linebackers.
(at around 17 mins) During the Brazil chase scene, the time of day appears to change from night to day and back to night again. When the soldiers first enter Bruce's home, it is night and Bruce is thought to be sleeping. However, when Bruce is running through the city, it is clearly daylight, only to turn into night again as he enters the factory.
