Government research scientist Henry "Hank" Howard (Jordan Lawson) has been commissioned by General Darwin (Terence Lording) to develop a serum that will increase the user's strength and longevity. Howard wishes to marry Darwin's daughter, Hannah (Shevaun Kastl), but Darwin angrily refuses. In an effort to prove that his serum is effective, Howard injects himself with it, turning him into a giant purple humanoid, the Bulk. That night, he goes on a date with Hannah to a carnival. They then take the subway, wherein a mugger approaches them at gunpoint and steals Howard's wallet and the ring he plans to propose to Hannah with. Not wanting to lose the ring, Howard attempts to fight the mugger and loses. After the mugger flees the scene, Hannah expresses her concern for Howard's sudden bravery, asking what could be so important that he would risk his life over. In order to hide the intended proposal, Howard lies, saying the mugger took a flash drive containing secret files about the serum.
Later that night, while witnessing the same mugger assault and murder a young woman, Howard transforms into the Bulk and kills the man; he runs off as police arrive to the scene, and they notice purple blood on the ground. Detectives Ray Garton (Jed Rowen) and Lisa Tuttle (Deirdre V. Lyons) find Howard's wallet and return it to him the next day. When Garton finds a purple stain on his hand, he becomes convinced that Howard is responsible for the mugger's death. They watch as Howard returns to the scene of the crime, and when they confront him, he transforms into the Bulk.
The Bulk goes on a rampage throughout the city as the detectives pursue him. The Bulk sends cars flying through the air, one of which lands on Tuttle, crushing her. Garton, enraged by his partner's death, shoots at the Bulk, who grabs and destroys a news helicopter. The Bulk morphs back into Howard and is arrested by Garton. In prison, Garton threatens Howard for killing Tuttle, until Darwin arrives with a serum to keep the Bulk under control. Darwin tells Howard that supervillain Dr. Werner von Kantlove (Randal Malone), along with his assistant Lolita Kantlove (Juliette Angeli), have been destroying famous monuments and landmarks. Kantlove attempts to destroy the moon, but finds that a monkey has hijacked the rocket.
Darwin explains that the only way Kantlove can be stopped is with the help of the Bulk, and convinces Howard to comply when he says he will allow him Hannah's hand in marriage. Howard is deployed several miles from Kantlove's castle, and after sprinting through several locations, he arrives at the castle. Turning into the Bulk, he kills Kantlove's guards, and the military destroys the castle. Darwin then betrays the Bulk, ordering for a jet to bomb him. After a lengthy chase, a nuclear bomb is dropped on the Bulk.
Howard arrives at Darwin's home, having inexplicably survived the bombing. He reunites with Hannah, but when Darwin sees that he has survived, they break into a struggle and fall off a balcony, which kills them both. Later, Hannah visits Howard's grave and leaves a rose there. After she leaves, a drunken Garton arrives at the grave. When he begins urinating on it, the arms of the Bulk emerge from the ground and punch him.

Director Lewis Schoenbrun was researching stock computer-generated imagery for the production of a low-budget horror mockbuster of The Incredible Hulk, starring a female protagonist. When discussing with a producer the idea of making a comic book film featuring large amounts of green screen, he instead decided to create a parody of the character the Hulk. Schoenbrun stated that he never initially intended to make a bad film, but retroactively considered the film a parody. Many of the characters have blatant parallels with Marvel Comics characters associated with the Hulk mythos; Henry Howard with Bruce Banner, General Darwin with General Ross, and the Bulk with the Hulk.
Scriptwriting for the film was completed over a span of four months, while finding all the CGI elements, along with creating storyboards, occurred over the course of six months. All of the film's settings and transitions, as well as much of its imagery, are stock graphics and backgrounds taken from numerous websites, including eBay,
