3.0 out of 5 stars It could have been a lot better, December 4, 2011
This review is from: The Green Hornet (DVD)
First, the movie is well made with a lot of good action, a bunch of neat cars and gadgets and some good supporting peformances including Jay Chou as Kato. What is lacking is the lead performance of Rogen and even more, his written script.
The main problem is that Rogen's interpretation of the Britt Reid character is really a jerk. He is selfish, he drinks and curses too much, and he has a huge ego which contradicts the fact that he has zero accomplishments. His motives for becoming a superhero seem to be that he is bored and it would be cool not that he genuinely wants to help people. He is lazy yet he wants to take all of the credit from the hard working Kato. Clark Kent and Peter Parker are characters the fans root for and identify with- Rogan's Reid is not. I think you can mix comedy with superhero action but where this misses the mark is that it fails to present a hero that people can cheer on. The type of slacker jerk that Rogan portrays might have been funny as a supporting character such as a buddy or co worker of the main hero but as the hero, it fails. 2.5 Stars only.
