OK, I can accept secret super-soldier programs. I can even accept that being overdosed with radiation does not just turn you into a pot sticker. I can roll with both the Hulk's pants and skin shrinking back down when he reverts.

But a spec ops Captain putting on his Class A uniform for a debrief and not shaving? Bleeped text! Completely unbelievable! I have lost my suspension of disbelief.

Wearing a couple days of stubble on mission in tactical kit … got it. But if you have time to put on a tie, you had time to shave. And you're a snake eater. You take pride in details like your uniform.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAaargh! You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry!*

* That's a joke from the movie. Banner is in Brazil and doesn't get the Portuguese for "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." quite right.

It was eight years ago. That isn't a spoiler.

One has one's own tolerance limit of folderol they permit.
Glad to see you have posted yours.

Yeah. Giant monsters and transformation are a part of the general conceit of the genre, so you either accept them or you just don't read/watch/play in the genre.

Later on in the movie, I was wondering if anyone shooting the movie had ever heard of posse comitatus or ever actually seen anyone in the real military.

I mean, how hard is it to hire a consultant with a military background who can say, "Hey … uh … no. Don't do that."
