We see Bruce Banner shirtless when he turns back to himself, several times.


When he gets angry he turns into a half naked monster


When Hulk is transforming in the house his clothes are being ripped and while he flexes his muscles his pants rip off revealing his underwear and his shirt ripped off revealing his bare chest. A little while later he fights some dogs in the woods and gets his underwear ripped off but no nudity is shown at least not until he turns back to normal but it’s very brief and no full nudity


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


Hulk is a heroic film with rich psychological depictions.

People are always manipulated by their own destiny, and people are always bound in one way or another. That is the case with the “Hulk”. Ang Lee always adds the character and situation of ordinary people to these mythological and comic characters, so as to convey his life experience and ideas to the audience.

Like those oldest legends, a son of destiny was deeply buried with God’s blood, until one day he suddenly accepted his identity as a half man and half god, and a hero was born. In any case, the legends of these heroes always carry the trace of fate, and the hero has never been able to achieve everything, he will still be bound by fate. “Hulk” is almost irresistible to any force in the world, but he still can’t get his love in the end. This is the price of becoming a hero and the lonely fate of a hero.

“Don’t make me angry, you don’t want to see me angry.” this dialogue before the end of the film is the classic line of the “Hulk” series comics, which also officially announced the birth of the superhero “Hulk” at the end of the film. Bruce finally accepted his destiny and accepted the identity of “Hulk”, but the birth of this hero was because he succumbed to his destiny and became a prisoner of his destiny. Ang Lee completed the manufacturing process of the hero in this contradiction. This is a typical oriental dialectical philosophy. No wonder many Western audiences and film critics shout it hard to understand.

Anger is the power source of the hulk and the embodiment of his ID power. It also made him lose his reason and wisdom and become a super destroyer driven by anger. Ang Lee captures this allegorical plot element in the film and once again brings ordinary people’s normal emotions to the superheroes in the film. Who can not be angry, no matter who is angry, will be blinded by anger. “Hulk” is an image in the imagination of ordinary people. He can become a hero and destroyer in anger. In fact, the guy who has vented the emotions of all the audience is just a wretch in the imagination of the public. As Bruce said in the film, “you know what I’m most worried about? Whenever something happens, when he attacks me, I completely lose control,… I like that.” This is the most direct embodiment of “Id”. “Id” refers to the original self, including the basic desire, impulse and vitality needed for survival. It’s desire. It is the source of all psychological energy. Its only requirement is to live happily and avoid pain. The goal of ID is to seek individual comfort and survival. It is unconscious and not perceived by the individual. According to Ang Lee, “every human body has its own green giant. How to control it and overcome it is exactly what I want to think about in the film.”

In the film, after calming down, Bruce can calmly think about the problems he foresees. He was able to discuss with Betty the reasons for his mutation. He found himself as Bruce, and his ego was returned. The original meaning of “self” refers to “self”, which is the part that can be realized and execute thinking, feeling, judgment or memory. The function of self is to find the impulse of “Id” to be satisfied and protect the whole body from harm at the same time. Serve the ID, but it is opposite to the illogical and irrational primary process of the ID. The strong conflict between ID and ego makes Bruce painful, tortured and sad.

In the film, when “his father” calls, Bruce asks him “what have you done to me”. When he learned that his gene had mutated. He once said, “no, you shouldn’t do that. I want to isolate those genes, I want to eliminate them, I want to eliminate them before they do harm.”. However, his ambition was easily defeated by the sentence of “his father”, which seemed to doomed his tragic fate. “You and your friend Betty must want to do that, but can you really destroy a part of your body? I don’t think so.” And at the end of the film, “his father” went to see him, asked for his return and gave him strength. His weak answer: “whatever you think, I won’t go with you”, “don’t do it, don’t do it, don’t do it”, “I’d rather die” and the roaring “you go…” all reflect his pain and the restraint and normative power of “superego”. “Superego” is the part representing the ideal in the personality structure. It is formed through the internalization of moral norms and the values of social and cultural environment in the process of individual growth. Its function is mainly to supervise, criticize and control their own behavior. Like the “Id”, it is unrealistic and mostly unconscious.

In the film, Bruce’s pain is due to the interaction between ID and superego. The purpose of superego is to counteract the potential danger of ID, which is obvious when the principles conflict. As an intermediary or buffer factor, ego plays an important coordinating role between superego, ID and reality. On the one hand, ego should meet the requirements of superego, ID and reality at the same time, but also resist their excessive requirements. Maintain their own autonomy and peace. When the ID and superego threaten self-control, one will feel anxious. Self is weakened and self strength is exhausted. In other words, when the self-regulation is unsuccessful and the ID or superego becomes too strong, the conflict between them may defeat us. That’s why Bruce feels pain. He himself could not reasonably adjust the life face of the powerful “devil” in his heart and the “self” controlled and restrained by his own will. That’s what “his father” called “poor human”. “Superego” resists the powerful power of “Id”. It makes people feel anxious and painful. At the end of the film, he sat between the two electrodes, waiting for his father’s weakness to reflect its weakness and pain.

Ang Lee did not give the Hulk the traditional “heroic form” to “save people” and “save beauty”, but let him use his own strength to break all conventions and use violence to destroy and release. The Hulk became a “tragic hero”. However, at the end of the film, he found a way to save himself. He admitted his identity as a “Hulk”. He tried to control his temper. He lived in seclusion in the depths of a green forest and continued his research. He did his own salvation. “He became a prisoner of his own destiny”, which is his tragedy.

Like many Hollywood films, love has become an angel to save everything, the angry “Hulk” and the victims under the destructive power of the “Hulk”. But Bruce’s love for Betty, in my opinion, is more like the compensation for Bruce’s maternal love for the lack of maternal love since childhood. Betty hugged Bruce with open arms, like the image of a mother waiting for the return of a troubled child. And the “Hulk” always falls meekly at Betty’s feet in the destruction of incomparable anger. And as a girlfriend, Betty doesn’t have 100% support and trust for her boyfriend like classic Hollywood movies. She called her father many times because “I’m afraid” with him. She sent Bruce, who had saved her, to his father for a long time. As a girlfriend, she has no confidence to rely on her own strength to help her loved ones find the past and overcome fear. What she relies on is strong force protection, but what she wants to fight is the person she loves… When she sees what her father is about to do to Bruce, she can only be indifferent. Although Ang Lee’s attitude towards this task is different from that of his previous Hollywood girlfriend, who always believes and believes without doubt, there is no doubt that this task is more real. In other words, we are all normal people and we are afraid, aren’t we?

Although Ang Lee’s “Hulk” as a $160 million production cost, the same price of publicity costs, a film made with astronomical figures, the box office and comments are not ideal. However, as Ang Lee with strong humanistic temperament, the psychological analysis film with deep psychological description and research of “how to control and defeat the Hulk in everyone’s heart” is still very interesting.
