* NiceJobBreakingItHero: It was General Ross' fault David was unable to cure Bruce.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: It was General Ross' fault David was unable to cure Bruce. Also happens for a certain value of "hero" at the end. With the super-powered Bruce and David Banner throwing down and Bruce over-loading his father's absorbing powers, Ross decides the best solution is to hit them both with a gamma bomb. As that wasn't exactly how Bruce's (and David's, but Ross doesn't necessarily know that) powers were awakened in the first place, all it does is remake the Hulk.

** The Raptor that the Hulk hitches a ride on appears to reach escape velocity and drift away into space right when the Hulk passes out from lack of oxygen, although whether it's just sloppy editing is hard to tell. An F-22 couldn't even reach close to that altitude before its engines would stall from lack of oxygen, let alone go fast enough in a vertical climb to reach space.



** Hulk does this to himself in one of the film's truly funny moments, during the scene when the tanks are attacking him. When he tears the turret off one of them, he's standing over the barrel and racks himself. (See [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wrNMPRriwc here]], at 0:36 in.)

* BullyingADragon: Early in the film, Hulk-Bruce uses Glen Talbot as a melee weapon to beat two other people into unconsciousness. After Bruce is captured, Talbot, who is wearing a cast and neck brace, decides that shocking Bruce repeatedly with a cattle prod to try to get him to change into the Hulk (so Talbot can get a blood sample) is a good idea. Luckily for Talbot, this attempt fails, or he probably would've ended up in intensive care, or the morgue. Unluckily for Talbot, his next attempt ''does'' work [[spoiler:and the morgue is exactly where he ends up]].

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Bruce and Betty are still separated at the end, and Betty is under constant surveilance from the government for her own protection. But Bruce is still alive and trying to help people, and Betty's relationship with her father is much better than it was in the beginning of the film.]]

* {{Angst}}: Boatloads of it, many of them Freudian. Bruce's insane father (who also mudered his mother) is the source of his mutation who still wants to continue his 'experiment', and Bruce is hounded by the authorities because any moment he could turn into a giant green monster.
