5.0 out of 5 stars Review To Help Your Purchase June 30, 2009
Format:DVD
This DVD release is SUPERB. I can say that because I have purchased numerous releases for the same serial, including VHS and unauthorized DVD releases. The picture quality is sharp and clear and evidently from the studio masters. The sound is excellent and the detail level is superb.

The serial is chaptered so you can select which chapter you want to watch or you can watch them all from beginning to end without interruption. Old-Time Radio shows are a bonus.

Best part about this release is the liner notes. Authored by Martin Grams, it reveals just how and where they filmed each scene for the chapters, character actors in small roles (such as an unbilled Alan Ladd) and more. I recommend you read the liner notes before watching the serial so you have plenty to look out for during viewing. Makes viewing more fun. (And according to the end of the notes, the author has an authorized book on THE GREEN HORNET coming out in early 2010!)

Overall, quality, liner notes, radio shows, bonus features, this is as good as it gets. If you question whether this is worth the price, take it from a Hornet fan. Grab this.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Green Hornet Strikes Again April 21, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Warren Hull replaces Gordon Jones in the lead role in this sequel to The Green Hornet. Hull, who is best known in his role as The Spider and who also played Lee Falk's Mandrake is a welcome improvement for Jones. Keye Luke returns as the sidekick Kato. Y'know next to Clark Kent's glasses as a disguise, how could you not figure out who the Green Hornet and Kato was. A white guy and an oriental kinda stands out, huh? But, despite the lame secret identity (you have to suspend some disbelief), this is a fair serial despite it's Columbia label (sorry, but I have a real prejudice for Columbia serials). It contains a fair amount of action, a good cast and some semblence of a story. If you want to view Hull's best work, however, find a copy of "The Spider Strikes" and avoid at all costs "The Spider Returns."

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of action February 27, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Fran Striker, co-creator of The Green Hornet radio show, was script supervisor and two actors, William Hall and Jay Michael were from the popular radio show. Hall was the voice of radio's Hornet for a time. So what we see here is a first-rate serial that really tried to be faithful to the radio series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Green Hornet Strikes Again! June 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The company known as Video Treasures has done it. They have successfully raised a film from the dead A long, long, time ago a list was published called "The Lost Sound Serials" GHSA was one of them. There was no hope to ever see this story again, until Anchor Bay makes a fine print brought fromk Universals original film negatives. As for the movie, it's good but not great. Warren Hull brings more dignity to the role of GH. Keye Luke is a passable Kato, but expect no Bruce Lee, Kato rarley gets into a fight. The story is full of action, adventure and heart stopping cliffhangers. It's great fun for children and adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Green Hornet Survives Another Explosion October 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"The Green Hornet Strikes Again" was released by Universal in late December of 1940, produced after the success of the first Green Hornet serial. This one stars Warren Hull instead of Gordon Jones, but still with Keye Luke as Kato, Anne Nagel as Lenore Case and Wade Boteler as Michael Axford, directed by Ford Beebe and John Rawlins. Warren Hull had played a similar character, "The Spider" in a 1938 Columbia serial and would do so again in 1941.

The plot follows the same formula used in the first Green Hornet serial, with newspaper publisher Britt Reid battling racketeers, using his secret identity to take direct action against them. The bad guys perpetrate a series of rackets, most taking only a chapter or two to be cleaned up, rather than having a single large-scale plan. This time the main bad guy is Boss Crogan (Pierre Watkin) with main underlings Bordine (James Seay), Tauer (Arthur Loft), Dolan (Joe A. Devlin) and De Luca (William Hall). There is more of a connection with "a foreign government" than in the first serial.

The episodic format helps keep the plot moving, though not necessarily in any particular direction. The schemes and cliffhangers tend to be repetitive, and don't provide any logical path to the capture of Crogan, who is uncovered more-or-less by accident. Britt Reid sends Axford and Ed Lowery (Eddie Acuff) to investigate the latest known racket, and they encounter the same crooks. "The Hornet" never learns to tie up BOTH bad guys before questioning one of them, nor to watch out for the third one. And he is remarkably resistant to collapsing buildings and explosions, even by serial movie standards, hobbling away with only a little help from Kato, being back in full action after a few minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Green Hornet Still at Large June 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this on VHS like the first one and am glad this is also coming out on DVD. I think Warren Hull portraies the Green Hornet as well as Gordon Jones did. Watching both serials in a row it seams to be one large movie since they both go togather so well. If you like adventure and superheroes these two serials are a good chose.
