Intense live-action adventure about a fugitive scientist (Edward Norton) searching for a cure to the gamma poisoning that transforms him, when provoked, into a rampaging behemoth, with the help of his girlfriend and former colleague (Liv Tyler) and despite the efforts of her Army general father (William Hurt) and a British officer (Tim Roth) to capture him and exploit his powers. In between breathless chases and effective battle scenes, this latest adaptation of the popular comic, directed by Louis Leterrier, touches on serious moral issues about the use of force and the manipulation of human biology, though it squanders the initial innocence of its main characters' romance. Nongraphic premarital sexual activity, partial rear nudity, stylized violence, painful medical scenes, brief scatological humor, and occasional crude and crass language; it's possibly acceptable for older teens. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
