Louis Leterrier (born June 17, 1973) is a French film director whose films include the first two Transporter movies, Unleashed (2005), The Incredible Hulk (2008), and Clash of the Titans (2010).

Leterrier was at first a drummer for a music group before experimenting with short films.

Edward Norton gave a great performance as Bruce Banner and I really think this film completely redeemed Hulk after the mixed reactions of the 2003 movie. The plot has a really well balance between drama and science fiction and it has really decent action scenes. However, the villain was kind of bland and some things in the plot don´t make much sense or are not explained in detail. Other than that, great entertainment
I think my main issue with Hulk is that I rarely see him as a superhero. I generally perceive this movie as a sci-fi/action drama about the portrait of a man trying to control his interior beast while permanently running away from the army forces that are looking for him in order to make a biological weapon. In the meantime losing almost everything he once had when he had a normal life. A man standing alone against the betrayal of the army and his inner demons, both biological and psychological, but not exactly a hero if you ask me.
