Runtime: 119 mins Release Date: 14 Jan 2011
What or who is the The Green Hornet? A masked vigilante, who fights crime at night alongside his trustful sidekick Kato. This superhero comes from a radio show and a comic book series. He is a something of a grandfather to Batman. Sounds like serious movie, right? Well, it isn't. It's an action comedy starring Seth Rogen. Some may not like this comedian but I have thoroughly enjoyed Pineapple express. I enjoy his style, he seems realistic and I love how excited he gets in movies especially this one when he is about to do something crazy because that's how I would be like. Jay Chou <more>
shows that maybe he has some comedic timing, that he is very good at martial arts and looks good in slow-motion. He also shows that as an actor he is very wooden. He's got the same expression on his face the whole movie but he isn't that bad actor to downgrade the movie, I actually think he was like that on purpose. Christoph Waltz is the best thing in this movie. Every scene with him is hilarious. He plays the main villain, a gangster, who is being told from various people that he is not scary anymore so he tries to establish himself as a scary mob boss again. Christoph Waltz excellently plays the very goofy villain, I think that it's not the lines, it's the guy what's funny, he makes it funny. If it would be different actor I think the scenes wouldn't be as funny. The always funny and always beautiful Cameron Diaz doesn't really get much screen time here, which is a huge pity. She plays Lenore Case, Britt Reid's new secretary who is unknowingly the mastermind behind the crime fighting duo. There are great cameos by Edward Furlong and a recent Seth Rogen co-star James Franco. Franco's cameo is just brilliant.The action scenes are great fun to watch, it's nice how they mixed the comedy into them, but they aren't that original but what the hell I will always pay to see cars blowing up and crashing into each other.I have not seen this in 3-D and I think it wouldn't bring anything new, maybe some action scenes would look cool but that would be it, nothing more. Although it would be worth the money seeing Cameron Diaz in 3-D.Overall this is very enjoyable fun action movie with some great one-liners from Rogen. Go and watch it, the year 2011 couldn't have started any better than with this movie.
Okay, I'm going to get right to the point,this movie was hilarious, entertaining full of some fantastic action. Seth Rogen and Jay Chou...amazing.One of the main complaints I hear is that some people couldn't understand Jay Chou, and I had no problem what-so-ever understanding him, unless he was speaking in Mandarin, which he randomly does, but I was okay with that because within the context of the film it was understandable.Essentially, anyone that says this movie is not one of the most hilariously entertaining movies ever made is overly critical and bitter about life. Well, <more>
apparently fun isn't for everyone.Anyway, I watched this movie in theaters, rented it, and will probably buy it, because it's friggin' GOLD.
A very funny and visually stimulating film! (by samclark17)
Going into this, I wasn't sure how 'Michel Gondry' it was going to be- wasn't sure if he would make a more 'traditional' movie to tell a serious, dramatic Green Hornet story- or if he would utilize his artful talent of creating interesting/stylized camera angles and scenes made so famous by Eternal Sunshine, Be Kind Rewind, and various other films- including his music videos for the White Stripes, etc. Luckily Gondry stays true to his signature style and creates thrilling visuals and very exciting and fun to watch fight scenes. And it isn't just the fight scenes, <more>
there are many other segments of eye candy for cinephiles like myself who appreciate both story and how the camera tells the story. I was impressed, the movie was much better than expected with a lot of laughs and a lot of thrilling action with a pretty decent story. I was concerned that I would be disappointed with Rogen but wasn't in the least!
Seth Rogan surprisingly good as The Green Hornet. (by notsale_ru)
When I heard that Seth Rogan was going to play the Green Hornet, I had my doubts. He often portrays the same character, the loser/stoner/nice guy. I used to like the comic book and TV series, and I probably watched it because my dad played the trumpet, and he liked to play the "Flight Of The Bumble Bee" theme song, trying to emulate Al Hirt. "Not now Kato" was one of my early quotable phrases. "Green Hornet" was less popular than "Superman" and "Batman", but had the better sidekick with Bruce Lee's portrayal of Kato.And with the spate of <more>
movies that have been based on comic books, the expectations were high. So many blockbusters have been superhero-based and I was wondering if this movie was made only because it was one of the few left that hadn't already been made into a movie and the producers were hoping to jump on the bandwagon. So with that, I eagerly anticipated seeing this movie.The movie opens with a gripping and yet goofy storyline. Christoph Waltz plays the criminal mastermind Chudnofsky, a man obsessed with being scary, and quickly establishes himself as the evil villain. Amid the violence is dialog that makes you laugh aloud. It won't be the last time.Rogan plays Britt Reid, the overindulged party animal son of a wealthy newspaper owner. He and his father have had a tough relationship, with Reid never living up to his father's impossibly high standards. After his father dies, he discovers Kato Jay Chou , who, while devoted to the elder Reid also was treated poorly. As Britt discovers that Kato is a genius with cars and gadgets, they unwittingly become a pair of crime fighters. It's a nice back story that sets the stage well for the sometimes rivaled relationship. They also compete for the attention of the secretary Lenore Cameron Diaz , a role that is way underdeveloped. I'm not sure about this choice for the role, and even though I enjoy Diaz, it probably was time for a younger and fresher face to have been cast.Unlike the earlier incarnations, D.A. Scanlon David Harbour and the Green Hornet are not close allies. As the story unfolds, we get to see some of those great cars and gadgets. But it is the fight sequences that really sizzle. I saw the 2D version of this movie, and when it is released it will be a 3D version, and the fight sequences will no doubt benefit by being viewed in 3D, but even in 2D, they were awesome. The car chases and some other scenes will also likely be fun to watch in 3D, but I'm not sure that this movie really needed the extra special effects in order to become a classic.Throughout the movie, I was surprised by how often there were laugh-out-loud moments, as well as some great one-liners, usually by Rogan. Of course, there is the climactic chase scene and shoot out, with some new and interesting ways in order to make it fresh. You won't be saying "I've seen THAT before" - believe me. The only problem I had was that the premise for the final car chase is a bit flimsy, and breaks the movie magic for me. ***Spoiler Alert*** I mean really, a hidden tape recorder that records on a flash drive, but you have to go back to the office to upload it? Wouldn't you build mobile communications into the car if you took the time to install a fax machine? But I'm willing to suspend reality and forgive breaks from older story lines when it comes to the movies, and just let myself get wrapped up in the spectacle unfolding on the screen. "Green Hornet" is funny, action-packed, well-acted and gadget-filled to make this one of my favorite superhero movies. I'll probably see it again in 3D just for fun. Rated PG-13 for violence and sexual references. Keep the 10 and under kids home. Opens Jan 14, 2011. 9 out of 10.
Oh my God it has imagination, humor and originality. It stinks! (by hijosderoddaria)
If you think X-Men Origins: Wolverine was an OK movie, then The Green Hornet is not for you. If on the other hand, you enjoyed the hell out of stuff like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, then you may spend two great hours with this fresh and irreverent take on an old "super-hero".The Green Hornet answers the question: What if you gave an incredibly talented 10 years old kid a couple of million dollars to make an action-adventure movie? That's what Michel Gondry is. The film is full with all his beautiful creativity, simple but marvelous ideas that make you smile, like a LP <more>
record player in the backside of ejectable sits, to enjoy some classic tunes while you surf the sky.If thinking outside the box scares you, if the thought of taking guys in spandex and crime-fighting with masks not so seriously makes you cringe, then stay away from this. Otherwise, prepare yourself for some fun.
I honestly don't understand the bad reviews. They must have come from WAY TOO SERIOUS superhero-movie watchers. It's Seth Rogen - come on, folks!! We've got camp and silliness and hilarious dialogue, plus fantastic gadgets and action scenes, and feel-good buddy stuff. Maybe the people who need to see it are those who think they don't like superhero movies - they might be in for a pleasant surprise. I hope that time will grant this effort of Rogen's a few more rating points, and that it will grow in popularity through DVD viewings. Seth Rogen is one of the few really <more>
creative, funny, and truly humble people in Hollywood these days. I'd watch this movie again in a heartbeat.
I went into this movie having read reviews talking about how the movie "couldn't decide" what it wanted to be. And they were Absolutely correct, but i couldn't care less. The Green Hornet is so horribly acted and over the top that it easily fits into the category of "SO BAD ITS GOOD", For fans of slap-stick classics such as "Flash Gordon" or anything by Mel Brooks, this movie is a MUST SEE. There are at least 3 or 4 scenes sprinkled throughout the movie that are meant to be completely sincere and serious. They utterly and gloriously fail. Seth Rogan <more>
couldn't decide if he wanted to do Iron Man or Pineapple Express, so he just said "To hell with it" and did both. As i said before, he totally failed to produce any kind of real connection with the characters or make any sense with the story, misfit characters are sporadically flung into the mixture and cheesy unoriginal dialogue runs ram-pit through the film, but this movie is not what it seems to be. It succeeds because of how HORRIBLY it fails. Toss in easily the funniest fight scene ever captured on film and best usage of Coolio's "Gangsters Paradise" in cinema and you've got comedic GOLD. Please go into this movie with absolutely NO expectations and i promise that you will leave satisfied.
Great parody, rather than a classic super hero movie. (by scarlatov)
If you don't know what to expect and you haven't even seen the trailer than i believe you are going to have great fun. The movie is not a classic main stream super hero movie but a very nice parody making fun of the way super hero movies are made, emphasizing on their blank spots. Do not expect a meaningless script like "super hero movie". Green Hornet has its own storyline that is consistent, but the characters and situations are hilarious. I haven't laughed so much for a long time, which makes the movie a success judging by the result. I believe it is a great way to <more>
spent an evening if you want to relax and watch an easy entertaining movie.
Yes, Surprisingly Good, yes, yes, yes, not awful! (by Scott_Mercer)
The people who gave this movie a 1 are morons. The first two reviews here on the IMDb that I read savaging this film said that the "movie didn't even have a DC Comics logo at the beginning." Gee, Einstein, could that be because The Green Hornet is NOT a DC Comics character? It was first devised for a radio show that started before DC Comics even existed. If there was a DC Comics version of The Green Hornet, it was clearly licensed from whoever owned rights to the concept. The second review I read said that the only thing good in the movie was "Kato, played by John <more>
Cho." YOU IDIOT! Kato was played by Jay Chou, not John Cho! John Cho is Harold in Harold and Kumar, Professor Hawking. If you people reading this are undecided about this filmand you choose to align yourself with people who just fling stupidity like that around, be my guest. But you'll be on the outs with right-thinking people who were able to accept this film as a fun time.Now, I will grant that Seth Rogen can get a little overbearing at times, much like Vince Vaughn. But he rolls that tendency nicely into his character, since he was one of the screenwriters. You buy him totally as a selfish, lovably annoying okay, for some people, not so lovably cad who needs to grow up.By the end of the film, his character has gone through a lot, learned a lot, and grown up quite a bit. Your main character can't improve if he starts off perfect! You people know nothing about screen writing.The direction by Michel Gondry is impeccable. About the only complaint I might have is the rapid-fire action can be confusing and overwhelming at times. But I feel this is a fault of all action movies of current vintage, and not to be laid at the feet of Michel Gondry. I don't think anyone can or would find a complaint with the special effects, which are amazing. The 3-D was well utilized and thrilling, and not too obtrusive. It is this type of slick Hollywood action spectacle not an insult in my book...necessarily that Imax 3-D does so well.Even my friend, a self-avowed Seth Rogen hater, said she found this movie to be entertaining, thrilling, and well worth the admission price. She even thought that Seth Rogen was good in this film, both as an actor and a writer.This film certainly did not have the serious tone of Batman Begins, nor was it as wacked out as something like Mystery Men. But I thought it did strike a nice balance between non-stop thrills and well-constructed laughs. Probably the best superhero flick since Iron Man.
