Corrected entry: In the scene where the Hulk destroys the tanks, we see see a close-up of the tank tread on the soft sand. Later in the scene the Hulk swings a 20 ton turret around and throws it off into the distance. While the Hulk has incredible strength, the desert sand does not, so it would not bear the immense reaction forces required. Simply, he should have sunk into the sand.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film when Bruce first turns into the Hulk, he tosses the gamma machine out of the lab and into the road outside, but if you use frame by frame or slow motion from a view on the inside the gamma machine reaches the outside, and a view from the outside is showing the machine just coming out of the wall.
Corrected entry: David Banner extracts DNA from one of Bruce Banner's hairs. He prepares it by cutting off the ends with a razor, but there is no DNA in the shaft of a hair, only in the root.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bruce is tied up and talking to his dad (in front of the incinerator) the boom mike is visible for a fraction of a second.
Corrected entry: After Hulk had fought off the large dogs, he goes over by the creek. As he goes over, the shot lets us see the car with the broken windshield, but Betty is not in there.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, when Bruce has been captured by the military, General Ross claims that he will incinerate him on the spot if he shows any signs of transforming again. At this point, Ross is well aware that the change is triggered by anger and/or emotional distress, yet he sits back and does absolutely nothing as Bruce's father works him into a veritable frenzy.
Corrected entry: If David Banner was locked away for thirty years after accidentally killing his wife, then how was he able to find out where Bruce Banner lived, where he worked, or even that he was adopted by the Krenzler family? All he had of Bruce was articles about him and his research, but nothing that suggested that Bruce was his biological son until later in the movie when he went into Bruce's lab and took a hair sample.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bruce is fighting tanks in the desert, in one shot he picks up a tank, twirls it around, and tosses it. Now let's think about that. He would have to get that 60 ton tank moving about 180 MPH to throw it that far away. That would take about 200,000 horse power, roughly the strength of an aircraft carrier. But in the very next shot, he takes the turret of that same tank and hits another with it, making only a moderately sized dent.
Corrected entry: Why didn't the mutated dogs get bigger as they got angrier? They were exposed to the same gamma rays as Bruce.
Corrected entry: In the scene where we first meet Betty in the hallway of the laboratory, she seems to have just enough hair to pull up into a small amount on her head , yet by the end of the movie she has long thick beautiful black hair.
Corrected entry: When the Army pursues the Hulk to San Francisco, there's a rather spectacular battle in the vicinity of the Golden Gate Bridge...and yet there's normal rush-hour traffic on the bridge. A giant green man slugging it out with jet fighters and attack helicopters is apparently a normal sight for Bay Area residents as none of them stop to watch or flee for their lives.MoonMan
Corrected entry: In the scene where the helicopters were going to drop off some cargo in the desert, some of the helicopters did not have a shadow.
Corrected entry: Sam Elliots' mustache is out of limits for military standards. The military standard for a mustache is it will not extend downward beyond the upper lip or extend sideways beyond a vertical line drawn upward from the corner of the mouth. He's good on the first half, but in violation of the second half.
Corrected entry: If Bruce came home as the Hulk the night he first transformed, how were his bike and helmet there in the morning when Betty came over?
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the San Francisco scene when Hulk lands on top of the Golden Gate Bridge and the jets start to fire at him; only the tip tops of the bridge show through the thick fog. Next scene, maybe 10 seconds later when the jet nearly crashes into the bridge, sunshine, no fog.
Corrected entry: When General Ross enters the control room just after Bruce is brought into the desert base under sedation, the ranking officer in the room says "Attention on deck". This is a naval term not used in the Army.
Corrected entry: Banner stands in front of a gamma ray source to protect his friends. Gamma rays will penetrate anything except for concrete and lead. A renowned nuclear physicist should know this basic property, and know that his body would do nothing but absorb the deadly energy.
Corrected entry: The first time Bruce turns into The Hulk, after he fights with the dogs and turns back into his human form, he's completely naked. However, the other time he changes from Hulk to Bruce, he's clothed.
Corrected entry: Bruce remembers the rat experiment, but he wasn't there when the experiment was made by his dad.
Corrected entry: The Hulk makes a very small splash for something that just fell from the upper atmosphere.
Corrected entry: When Bruce is remembering when his dad killed his mom, he sees that the door gets broken, but when he and Betty go to Bruce's old house, the door is OK.
Corrected entry: I know that the military lab is set up to Talbot's specifications and all, but isn't it curious that there was no visional monitoring of Banner in his cell? After, had he wanted, he could have worked himself into a rage and transformed with no one aware until too late (not that any early detection would have mattered). Plus, it would make it very easy for someone with an electric prod to enter and begin to torture the prisoner.
Corrected entry: In the scene at San Francisco, just after the Hulk sees Betty coming in the helicopter, the army and police arrive. There is a shot from above the Hulk and the camera is slowly pulling away. The Hulk is standing next to the hole in the ground that he burst out from. The hole is a perfect circle, and is obviously smaller than the Hulk.
Corrected entry: In a very early establishing shot that tracks slowly into Bruce and Betty's Institute office, you can see a namplate next to the door that says "Bruce Banner." However, Bruce doesn't even know he's a Banner yet, and everyone calls him Kenschler (after his adoptive parents, I guess.)
Corrected entry: When Betty goes to check on Bruce after the first rampage (as the Hulk) she finds him on his bed and before that she sees the back dooor is open and later on (when they are eating) it is closed.
Corrected entry: How can Bruce Banner's trousers, which we bought for a slightly built man of no more than 6 feet in height, stretch enough to remain and cover the dignity of a creature that at times seems to be at least 8 and possibly 12 feet tall and is almost three times as wide especially as he lost all his other clothes? Also when he turns back into his normal human form how come they shrink down to a perfect fit again That must be some extra special lycra he has there...
Corrected entry: Both Bruce Banner and Betty Ross were in close proximity to a nuclear explosion as children. Why were they not flash-blinded, especially if they were looking straight at the blast when it happened? I could buy it with Bruce, since David's mutation may have given him some immunity, but Betty?MoonMan
Corrected entry: After the Hulk's first rampage Betty comes in to check on Bruce and she leaves the door wide open. Later she goes to the door (when the military is there) and it is closed.
Corrected entry: During Bruce's first transformation, he was wearing blue pants or jeans, but when Betty finds him lying face down on the bed the next morning, his ripped pants are purple.
Corrected entry: Why in the world did Ross tell the officer to show the Hulk the way out of bunker? He says he wants to face him outside, but why? Don't they have an advantage over him when he can't leap away, especially if he calms down and reverts to Banner?
