Entertaining, but nothing special or remarkable!

Britt (Seth Rogan) is the bored playboy son of rich newspaper owner, James Reid (Tom Wilkinson). With no discernible talent for anything other than living the high life, drinking, womanizing and enjoying well made cappuccinos from his father’s car mechanic, Kato (Jay Chou). When his father mysteriously dies, Britt takes over from him. Knowing next to nothing about running a paper or a household Britt alienates everyone but the enigmatic Cato who is skilled in weaponry, cars, and martial arts.

Deciding that doing nothing is boring (duh), Britt decides he will do something heroic by inventing his own superhero. What follows is a kind of bromance between the two characters who are soon crime busting and getting closer to the truth about his father who may have been on the take. Throwing i...

The Green Hornet review

The Green Hornet is yet another superhero movie that just fails. Seth Rogen is much to blame for this movie failing. He co-wrote the screenplay and is the main guy, yes he is the Green Hornet. He was a bad chose for this superhero. He just talks to much, the dialog was by far the worst thing in this whole movie. The dialog seems it was written in a day or two. The acting is pretty bad too, Rogan just does not do a good job. Christoph Waltz, fresh off his Oscar winning performance for Inglorious Bastards is the villain. He showed great promise after he did Inglorious Bastards, and I still think he is great. He is just wasted here. It wasn't entirely his fault, he is just given nothing to work with. He provides us with a villain, but not a character of any kind.

Now Cameron Diaz just loo...

The Green Hornet review

One of the films whose sidekick I enjoyed more than the main hero. Green Hornet seemed liked a spoiled brat instead of caring for others. The script was too light, not really much memorable lines either. There was no real threat from a villain, which is much needed in films like this to make it more compelling. So many things that needed to be changed. The effects,gadgets, car and action was worth seeing. This could have been better. ...

Lazy, Messy, and Pointless

I wanted to like this movie, I really did. Rogen and Chou are charismatic actors and I'm a big fan of Michel Gondry's visual style. The film itself has isolated scenes and lines that demonstrate the sharp satirical humor the film was going for in, apparently, lampooning the serial super hero genre. The problem is, the film isn't really about much, other than to showcase these random sequences of characters interacting. Sometimes this works, but, mainly, it doesn't. There is a villain, there is action, there are heroics and explosions; but all of it is sort of plotless and half-assed. Rather than craft a sharply-written and driven film with a strong heroic team and fearsome villain, the film sort of shuffles through cutting corners and half-realizing ideas. Rogen and Chou's characte...

The Green Hornet Review

In general amuch better start to 2011, obviously after having seen Season of the Witch. I never did have much knowledge about the film serial or what other media its source material is based off of although for some reason I think it must be overall faithful to the main concept of the character. The overall plot is that a man named Britt Reid, son of James Ried Los Angeles publisher of The Daily Sentinel who all of a sudden finds himself forced out of his playboy slacking life when he learns of James' death one day. Having no one else to turn to, he befriends one of his remaining servants, Kato. When the two one day end up finding themselves in the crime fighting sphere through certain events,Britt takes up the identity of The Green Hornet with Kato at his side to act as the city's antihe...

The Green Hornet

Although I was drawn by the trailers like I am sure many of you. So right up front I will have to give the green Hornet marketing department 5 stars! I still had no idea what to expect with “The Green Hornet” movie. As for me, my minor knowledge of the GH character was limited to the childhood reruns of the Adam West batman series when that Green Hornet and Bruce Lee would make cameos in the series. Back then I thought that Bruce Lee’s attempting to act like Robin could last 2 minutes in a fight with him was really stretching my belief system. I mean Santa Clause, the tooth fairy no problem, but Robin being able to hold his own with Brue lee? Come on now!
Anyway I thought the trailers were cool so I donated my $9.50 per person to check it out. I personally thought that - even though I w...
