Ang Lee’s Film:The Hulk 李安的《绿巨人》


The Hulk is an American superhero film in 2003 which is based on the fictional Marvel Comics character of the same name. Ang Lee directed the film.

Bruce is a freshly-graduated bionuclear researcher at the University of California. David reappears as a mysterious outcast in the city and begins infiltrating Bruce’s life, working as a janitor in the lab building. Ross, now an Army general and the estranged father of Bruce’s ex-girlfriend and co-researcher Betty Ross, also begins to investigate. He becomes concerned both for his daughter’s safety around Bruce and the fact that Bruce is working in the same field as David. After understanding that he is David’s son, he strictly prohibits him to be anywhere near Betty.Bruce succumbs to an accident during a scientific experiment which exposes him to gamma radiation and the nanomeds, causing them to intertwine with Bruce’s already-altered DNA. That night, his father confronts him, revealing their relationship and hinting at the mutation inside Bruce. Using samples of Bruce’s DNA stolen from stray hair, he begins experimentation on animals. Soon after, the growing rage within Bruce stemming from all of the frustration and stress building up around him activates his irradiated DNA, transforming him into a huge, green, and muscular mutated monster (turning to Hulk for the first time).

After Hulk rips them apart, saving Betty, he goes towards the lake to cool down. The next morning, Bruce is tranquilized and taken to an underground desert base. Betty pleads with her father to let her try to help Bruce control his transformations, but Ross remains extremely skeptical, believing Bruce will follow in his father’s footsteps. In the meantime, David breaks into the lab and subjects himself to the nanomeds, gaining the ability to meld with and absorb the properties of anything he can touch and killing a police officer who interferes. David is beaten by the Hulk repeatedly while trying to absorb his power, but while in the water of the lake, David demonstrates he gets more powerful if the Hulk keeps fighting him. Bruce, who somehow survives the explosion in which David clearly dies, is unconscious in his human form, remembering when his father said to him as a child while tucking him in bed, “Sweet dreams”, which probably hints that his father might’ve still loved him.
面对一系列措手不及的突发事件,布鲁斯的女友贝蒂·罗斯同样感到迷茫无助。她希望帮助布鲁斯,但却遭到负责围捕绿巨人的父亲的阻止。而此时,自称是布鲁斯父亲的神秘人物大卫出现在罗斯将军身边,他告诫贝蒂不要接近自己的儿子,令贝蒂更感困惑。就在贝蒂思念班纳的同时,罗斯将军所带领的特种军队非但不会同情绿巨人的遭遇,反而早已洒下天罗地网并派出最强大的战士,意欲抓获绿巨人以获知其中的秘密。为了对抗绿巨人的超能力,罗斯将军也有自己的秘密武器,那就是神秘的超能力怪物 “吸收人”。“吸收人”可以变身成为任何自己接触到的物体,与绿巨人势均力敌。而更为惊人的是,“吸收人”其实就是布鲁斯的生身父亲大卫·班纳。

In 2003, Lee returned to Hollywood to direct Hulk, his second big-budget movie after the disappointment of Ride with the Devil’s restricted release. The film received mixed reviews and became a moderate success, grossing over $245 million at the box office. After the setback, Lee considered retiring early, but his father encouraged him to continue making movies.
