Corrected entry: Every time the Hulk appears, the military always open fire on him with different weapons. Considering that tranquilizer darts and bullets bounce off him, the sonic cannon didn't help and getting him angry increases his strength, they would have finally realised he truly is unstoppable and given up.

Correction: Why do you think they would give up? Bulletproof glass can be shot through if you put enough rounds in it, so they think enough rounds could weaken him in a similar manner. Additionally, they may be firing hoping he has a weak spot somewhere.

Corrected entry: In the scene on the university campus yard when the military are attacking the Hulk, Blonsky confronts the Hulk, and right after saying "is that all you got?" we see him getting kicked by the Hulk. He gets kicked from left to right, but the next shot shows him tumbling from right to left as he smacks into a tree. (00:56:20)

Correction: That just means that they broke the 180 rule of filming. There's no error here except that they moved the camera across the line of action for the second shot, swapping the flow of action. And this rule only really matters in that some people get confused when they break the 180 rule. But in the absence of other evidence (i.e. "you can see the same mountain in the background" or something) there is no reason to believe that Blonsky's body did a boomerang and reversed direction directly into a tree.

Corrected entry: In the final battle, the Abomination leaps off a rooftop towards the machine gun on the helicopter. The Hulk leaps as well and grabs the Abomination just as he clasps the chopper. In spite of their combined weight, the aircraft appears to drop only slightly. It should have strained mightily just to stay aloft.

Correction: The copter does struggle, You get a good sense of this from the inside as you see them struggle against the weight with alarms going off, and they eventually crash from it.

Corrected entry: An all time favorite movies cliche' is the ubiquitous "sheared off, spouting fire hydrant", as seen in this movie when the Abomination is wrecking city streets. Must be an unwritten rule that every urban scene of destruction, but that don't make it right. Broken hydrants, with the connection to the water main many feet below, do not spray water when broken.

stevewaclo Premium member

Correction: They in fact do. After watching many high speed car crashes where a hydrant is sheared off the water can and does spray dozens to hundred feet in the air. Just look up "police pursuit fire hydrant" on YouTube for proof.

Corrected entry: When Bruce is talking to Mr. Blue at the university, the cursor on the computer is black with an outline of white around it, but that kind of cursor is only in MacBook computers. Since it is a Windows computer, it should be white with an outline of black around it.

Jake1999

Correction: I have a windows PC and I have the option to change my cursor to black with a white outline.

Corrected entry: In the scene where they ship the soda to the U.S.A it says BRASIL to U.S.A it should be BRAZIL with a Z not an S.

Jake1999

Correction: Brazilians spell Brazil with an S not a Z. So the S in a crate shipped from Brasil to the United States would be correct.

Corrected entry: When Bruce transforms into the Hulk the first time,he wakes up in Guatemala. Then he was in Chiapas, Mexico, and after that in the USA. How did he make it, without any money or credit or debit cards? Also, if he crossed the border, somebody would recognize him, because he is a US Army fugitive.

Correction: Banner has been on the run from the authorities for quite a while. I think it's safe to say he knows how to get around. As for crossing into U.S. territory, people illegally sneak across the United States border daily, so why couldn't Banner?

Corrected entry: The Hulk gets shot at thousands of times at the College and is bombed and also burnt by an exploding helicopter and seems unhurt. When he escapes to the caves, he is startled by Betty Ross and bumps his head on the roof of the cave, to which he rubs his head and looks hurt. surely this would be the least painful thing for the Hulk?

Correction: One could argue that with the super-strength of his own body being what forced hid head into the cave ceiling, it would hurt as much as anything could hurt him. Also, he wasn't in a rage at the time, ignoring the little stings and pains of being attacked.

Corrected entry: In the soda bottling factory Banner slices a nasty gash into the side of his thumb. That night when he is loading a slide onto his microscope you can see that the cut is completely gone. He did not change into the Hulk between the two events; the laceration should still have been there.

Correction: Part of the Hulk's abilities is regeneration and healing. Banner doesn't need to transform to heal.

Corrected entry: When the Hulk and the girl fall asleep in the cave after a night of hard rain it appears as if the Hulk is extremely dirty. The next morning the Hulk awakes as Bruce and he has no dirt on his body at all, even though he's in a dirty cave. Immediately after that he's sitting waiting for his girl to get to the hotel and his feet and body are extremely dirty. Especially look at his feet in the cave.

Correction: He is infact in the rain, dirt will not stay on anyone or thing in the rain. When he reverts back we only see the part of his body that is not directly on the dirt. It then cuts to the scene at the motel, there would be time between these scenes where they would have to walk to the motel, which explains the dirt on his feet. We do not see his body cause he is covered up.

Corrected entry: When the Hulk is being bombarded by the sonic waves, there is a soldier in the background that crouches down. Then it cuts to a shot of General Ross, watching the Hulk. When it cuts back to the Hulk, the soldier is back up again, and crouches back down. This is obviously replayed film.

Correction: When it goes back to the Hulk you don't see any soldiers, due to it being a close up.

Corrected entry: When the Hulk is fighting the military on the college grounds it is a bright sunny day, but when he takes down the helicopter it's all of a sudden dark and raining?

Correction: Just before the fight, when they fire the gas canisters at Bruce, you can see storm clouds in the back and lighning strikes. the fight takes long enough for the clouds to come over them and to start the downpour.

Corrected entry: Even minutes after when the Abonimation has started his rampage in the street, you see people still running around in the street, only to be hit by the Abonimation or dodge it in the last second. Should not they have had enough time to clear the street?

Correction: Some people are too stupid to head to safety. They'd rather see what's going on and their curiosity gets the better of them. This sort of thing happens in real life, only with things like tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, building collapses, mad gunmen in the streets, etc.

Corrected entry: When Banner is in Mr. Blue's office in New York for the experiment, you can see a black cable coming out from under his wig in the back. As he goes through the changes to become the Hulk and raises his head, you can see the cable which is to pump air into the face apparatus that transforms/distort Banners face.

Correction: Banner's hooked up to monitors, to keep an eye on the changes that he's going through. As such, it's hardly unreasonable that there would be cables running to his body.

Corrected entry: When Bruce Banner ("Mr. Green") is chatting with "Mr. Blue" he receives a message, and on the screen it says "Encrypting". It should, of course, say "Decrypting".

Correction: Nope, completely wrong. If Bruce was receiving an encrypted e-mail, then "Decrypting" would be the correct term, but he isn't. He and Mr Blue are using an encrypted chat system. As such, before they can chat, the necessary encryption protocols have to be set up, so "Encrypting" seems entirely appropriate.

Corrected entry: When the army locates Bruce in Brazil, he is warned by his dog when it starts barking. Bruce was clearly asleep, and his chasing down continues all day long, as we see some scenes where the sun is rising, then at midday when there are children in the streets, and finally at night when he comes across the guy at the soda factory.

Correction: Bruce is asleep because he's tired after work. It's late in the day - the sun is setting, not rising and we never see a shot that can be identified as midday. The chase simply runs from early evening into nightfall.

Corrected entry: When Bruce says they shouldn't do anything that can be traced, like credit cards or cell phones, the army is saying the same thing, that he's too smart to get caught. And then he sends an unencrypted, insecure email with all of the data he got from the USB drive. This alerts the authorities and they're off to New York. Bruce and Betty end up meeting Mr.Blue, so what was the point of sending an extremely insecure, traceable email if they could've just handed the USB drive to the guy?

Correction: Bruce is using an e-mail address that he thinks is entirely unconnected to him. As such, it would be foolish to add encryption, which could just draw attention to the e-mail if it were intercepted. As it is, it just seems like technical data being passed between scientists, which happens all the time. Bruce sent the data before the meeting was finalised - ergo, at the time, he didn't know that he'd be able to just hand it over.

Corrected entry: Intentionally or not (and very ironically either way), prominently visible in the background during the final fight between the Abomination and the Hulk is a store called "The Harmony Furniture Store".

Correction: If something's prominently visible in a film, then it doesn't need to be pointed out here.

Corrected entry: The British Marine officer is walking beside the General, both are in dress blues. A British officer would never slouch, he would be walking ramrod straight. Also, I would swear, they were wearing identical uniforms.

Correction: This is an opinion. Please provide evidence that no British officer would never, under any circumstances, walk in anything other than a ramrod straight posture and resubmit. As for the uniform issue, already submitted and corrected.

Corrected entry: Bruce is seen wearing a Polar HRM in a couple of scenes (such as when he is in bed with Betty) but there is no transmitter strap around his chest, so how does the HRM pick up his heart rate?

Correction: This model requires no transmitter belt:http://www.polarusa.com/Products/aw/aw200.asp.
