Abstract: In 2003, Taiwanese director Ang Lee (of all people) made a new entry into the comicbook filmmaking franchise with his version of the angry green fellow, the Incredible Hulk. Lee, at that time most famous for his intimate family dramas, and a few years later to make a huge splash with Brokeback Mountain, seemed the oddest choice of director to be matched with such a project, and in my opinion the 2003 film really didn't work. Eric Bana seemed miscast as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, and Jennifer Connelly struggled somewhat amidst all the CGI crash-and-bang. Despite one or two engaging action set-pieces, much of Lee's version seemed just plain silly to me, and to many other critics besides.
