Satur­day, go!, 7.30pm, PG (2003)

A not-so-jolly green gi­ant cuts a men­ac­ing yet strangely en­dear­ing fig­ure in Ang Lee’s re­spect­ful treat­ment of the time-hon­oured Mar­vel su­per­hero. Star Eric Bana has a firm grip on Bruce Ban­ner, the af­flicted sci­en­tist whose over­dose on gamma ra­di­a­tion causes him to turn into a brutish gi­ant when an­gered. Ser­viced by ILM’s daz­zling ef­fects and a clever script rooted in psy­cho­log­i­cal drama, Broke­back Moun­tain di­rec­tor Lee pre­serves the brains and brawn of the comic book, but jet­ti­sons the camp. Jennifer Con­nelly, Sam Elliott, Josh Lucas and Nick Nolte give mighty sup­port in a fan­tasy spec­ta­cle you’d be mad to miss.
