Hulk (2003) (part 8 of 13)

Back at Bruce’s house, General Ross is interrogating Bruce, and constantly flipping his personality setting back and forth from “concerned for the well-being of others” to “standard movie military dickhead”.

He starts out asking Bruce, politely, if not nicely, where his father is. Then he threatens him, and implies that they’re working together. Then he teases Bruce about what happened when he was a kid, and gets sarcastic when Bruce says he doesn’t remember. Suddenly, Ross is genuinely sympathetic to Bruce’s situation, and says that the lab is off-limits until the situation is resolved. Then he leans in really close and threatens to arrest Bruce if he comes within 3,000 feet of Betty. It’s like they wrote a Good Cop/Bad Cop scene, and then gave both parts to the same guy. It’s really infuriating, because otherwise, he’s the film’s most likable character.
