Product Description

Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is a slacker by day, party animal by night... until he finds a serious career that’s seriously cool: crime-fighting action hero. As the Green Hornet, he teams up with gadget wiz and martial arts master Kato (Jay Chou) to take down LA's underworld. Even Britt’s assistant Lenore (Cameron Diaz) doesn't suspect this mismatched pair is the masked duo busting the city's toughest thugs led by Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). With style, swagger and an arsenal of awesome gear, the Green Hornet and Kato are doing justice their way, making every mission a mix of over-the-top action and outrageous comedy.

Amazon.com

The buzz around The Green Hornet comes from the collision of weird talents involved: Seth Rogen plays the crime-fighting hero and writes the movie with his Superbad bud Evan Goldberg; pop star Jay Chou plays Kato; and the whimsy-headed Michel Gondry directs. Toss in Inglourious Basterds Oscar winner Christoph Waltz as a super-villain highly self-conscious about his brand, and you've got a blockbuster that definitely isn't going for the normal. And for a while, the movie's Apatovian comedy and bromantic tendencies supply some definite fun; plus, Waltz and his double-barreled revolver (along with an uncredited cameo by James Franco) launch the picture with a giddy opening action sequence. At some point, though, you want all this stuff to mesh, and The Green Hornet keeps zipping about in three directions at once, never quite maintaining its early comic zip, but not grounding itself in an engaging enough crime-fighting plot, either. And there's little to do for nominal female lead Cameron Diaz; although both millionaire playboy Britt Reid and Kato make half-hearted passes at her, it's clear their main interest is each other. You just knew a franchise that began as a radio serial in the 1930s (and took a brief but memorable detour into TV in the '60s) would end up being part of that unavoidable 21st-century genre, the male-bonding comedy. Of course, it's really a triangle. Their boss car, Black Beauty, also gets a lot of love. --Robert Horton

OK, to put this clearly and bluntly... if you are a real fan of the TV show with Van Williams, this movie could be a disappointment for you. It is a comedy, and spoof of the Green Hornet. I was really hoping for something more serious, and closer to the TV show. I've kept the DVD, and would view it again, but would rather own a quality collection of the original TV series with Van Williams and Bruce Lee. If you collect Green Hornet items, you might want to add this to your collection... but do be aware that this is not the same as the TV series.

I hated this movie because I grew up on the 1966 Green Hornet series and the Britt Reid I adored was suave, clever, debonair mroe like the Saint Simon Templar---NOT a narcissistic, rude man that treated people badly.

The Green Hornet movie is not true to the predecessors AT ALL. Even the guy who played Kato acted easily irritated and angered.... this is NOT the inflappable martial artist that Kato should be.

TOTALLY disappointing. If you're going to do a movie, keep it true to the portrayals of the character that people KNOW and love. Don't go making the hero into a narcissistic idiot!

This film can't decide what genre it's supposed to be. The writers spent too much time trying to make Seth Rogen funny - which is wasted time because he already IS funny - and not enough time writing a decent story. There's a couple of fun moments but this was not nearly as comical as the theatrical previews made it look. By the time the last 15 minutes came 'round I was watching the clock as it was dragging to the inevitable conclusion. This cast and the premise of an inept, immature buffoon stealing the lime light along with an ingenious, talented and deadly sidekick who gets no credit could have been wickedly funny. Somehow they missed the mark.

As a long-time fan of "The Green Hornet" and especially the Dynamite Entertainment series written by Kevin Smith, I was outraged by this goofy take on the grand-nephew of "The Lone Ranger." I walked out of the theater just shaking my head in disappointment. Then, taking the advice of Amazon reviewer Melissa Marina Gonzalez, I watched the film a second time and focused on Jay Chou's Kato as the main character, and, by golly, it worked! Following the point of view of a protagonist who isn't a screw-up, but rather a can-do, multi-faceted hero helps the film in every way. I never thought I'd see the day when the Hornet was more of a sidekick, but Seth Rogan's portrayal of the bumbling, egocentric Britt Reid actually works in this context. In fact, I only bought the film on Amazon to give Ms. Gonzalez's theory a shot, and I'm very, very glad I did!

Someone recently brought up the character of the Green Hornet to me and I had just about forgotten the old TV show. Did some checking online and saw this movie and wondered why I didn't go see it in 2011 as I usually watch every movie that comes out in this genre. I think I know why I didn't now. Really was hard to sit through. Seth was not the actor for this character. Jay was the only saving grace and Diaz is a nice touch to any movie. To be honest, you probably have something better to do than watch this movie. If you have two hours to spare, then I would suggest you wash and wax your car. It might not be as cool as the Hornet's, but you will feel better about yourself when you are finished.

This was a guilty pleasure and nothing else. If you're not into campy Seth Rogen films, then move on. Otherwise, this fits in very well if everything else he's done since his days on Freaks and Geeks.

Britt Reid (played by Seth Rogen) is tired of his dissolute life and wants to do some good. So, he convinces his mechanic Kato (Jay Chou) to join him in fighting crime. Well, it just so happens that Kato is a master of martial arts, along with being an expert mechanic and chemist. So, with the bumbling Reid in tow, the masterful Kato set out to do good. But, there’s a bad guy out there, who doesn’t like the Green Hornet (strangely enough, no one ever sees Kato) messing with his running of L.A., and he wants the man dead. Now it’s up to Kato to keep Reid alive and bring the bad guy down...if he can!

OK, as you can tell from the above summary, the makers of this movie really set out to turn the Green Hornet story on its head...and I don’t know why. Their weird take on the Green Hornet is not particularly interesting or even all that entertaining. Seth Rogen and his character are so unlikeable, that you really don’t care much if he lives or dies. And that’s really sad. Indeed, it’s what squashed the movie, and made a sequel unthinkable.

But, having said all that, I still liked the film. Jay Chou effectively carries this movie on his back, bringing in a very good performance. Also, the action is really exciting, while the visuals are nothing short of superb.

So, while this movie is FAR from being what it could have been, it is nonetheless a fun and entertaining romp. If you like a funny, off-beat action movie, then I think that you will like this take on the Green Hornet...just don’t expect too much.

That's 119 minutes I'll never get back. Seth Rogen's character was utterly unlikeable. I didn't even like Cameron Diaz in this stinker. jay Chou was the only good thing in the movie. Too bad he couldn't compensate for the rest. Seth Rogen... please give up acting... McDonald's is always hiring.
