* 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.

* HumansAreBastards: [[spoiler:David Banner]] ranted to Bruce that humanity has gone wrong.
-->--> '''David''': Think of all those men out there, in their uniforms! Barking and swallowing orders! Inflicting their petty rule over the entire globe! Think of all the harm they've done! To you! To me! To humanity! And know this, that we can make them, and their flags and their anthems and their governments dissappear! In a flash! You and me!

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: David Banner started out as a hard-working, but loving father, so unlike in the comics. Though David does eventually become antagonistic, mostly for different reasons.


Added DiffLines:

* CanonForeigner: Bruce's foster mother Mrs. Krenzler.

* AllPsychologyIsFreudian: Oh yeah. This adaptation plays up Hulk's screwed up psychology a lot more than most so Bruce has got daddy issues coming out the ass.

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Lampshaded at the end. Even though General Ross thinks there's no way Bruce could have survived an atomic explosion, he has his daughter under full surveillance in case he's wrong.

* OffingTheOffspring: By the end, David wants to kill Bruce so he can absorb Bruce's Hulk powers back into himself to stabilize his mutated body, arguing that he gave him life in the first place and should give it back.

* OffingTheOffspring: By At first, he David tried to kill baby Bruce, after Ross shuts him down and finding no other way to cure him. Though by the end, David wants to kill Bruce so he can absorb Bruce's Hulk powers back into himself to stabilize his mutated body, arguing that he gave him life in the first place and should give it back.



* SequelHook: The scene in South America at the end, showing Bruce trying to help others and deal with his condition. Surpisingly, Film/TheIncredibleHulk film picks up on this plot point, and could in fact act as a sequel to the general elements of this film. The subsequent [[Film/TheAvengers2012 Avengers film]] calls back to this by having him in a similar situation, hiding and providing help to the poor in India.
* SignatureStyle: Critics and viewers alike had a better reception of the film if they were aware of director Ang Lee's other work, Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon, which has many similarities: SceneryPorn, an abundance of [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene Quiet Drama Scenes]], a rather inspired(if bizarre) application of {{Wuxia}}, and {{Tragedy}}.

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Lampshaded at the end. Even though General Ross thinks there's no way Bruce could have survived an atomic explosion, he's GenreSavvy enough to have his daughter under full surveillance in case he's wrong.
