Green Hornet Movie Reviews
User reviews on Green Hornet
I like this move, it has a good setup, the characters make it what it it. 5 stars.
This movie was "blew" mainly because the Green Hornet was basically the story of an adolescent occupying an adult body. Kato, originally from China, had trouble enunciating his lines but is an awesome karate artist. I doubt he'll have much of a future in Hollywood unless he commits to speech therapy.
The only redeeming factor was Cameron Diaz. Of course, Cameron can make just about any movie, no matter how bad it is, worth watching. She didn't disappoint in this flick, but the Green Hornet definitely did.
If you haven't seen it yet, I'd suggest you Red Box it. It's not worth spending much more than a buck on.
Back in 1987, Bill Cosby starred in a movie called LEONARD PART SIX. It won the Trifecta at the Razzies: Worst Actor, Worst Picture, and Worst Screenplay. Cosby himself went on record denouncing it as a horrible movie and discouraged people from going to see it, weeks before it was even released.
GREEN HORNET stands a very good chance at duplicating that Trifecta.
In most cases I try & find at least ONE redeeming quality to warrant giving a film at least two stars. Sorry, not today.
This site requires a 45 word minimum per review, but HORNET can really be summarized in one:
First lets just say I'm done with paying extra for 3-D. Cato rocks , Seth Rogen not so much... Overall the action scenes are great.
I'm not sure who thought it would be a good idea to turn Seth Rogen into an action hero. His dopey stoner act is starting to wear thin already, and he hasn't shown much range in any of his other roles, so it this pairing was already strange on paper. Unfortunately, it's just as strange onscreen. The Green Hornet takes an old character and tries to make him palatable for today's audience, with predictably lame results.
Rogen plays Britt Reid, newspaper heir and, in this film, doofus party animal. Normally, when a complete moron decides to become a vigilante, there is some inner turmoil that comes out which deepens the character. But this is Rogen, and god forbid he try to stretch his acting chops, but of course, he continues his snarky, sarcastic dialogue throughout. John Chou as his crafty sidekick Kato is better, though he's not a native speaker, and many times, its hard to understand him. Christoph Waltz and Cameron Diaz, in supporting roles, are make little impact.
Besides a post-production 3D process that needs to go away immediately, the most disappointing thing about this movie is that it was directed by Michel Gondry and looks like it was directed by, well, it doesn't matter. You hire Michel Gondry to give you a whimsical, surreal look. This movie looks like just about every other boring action film out there, with little of the flair and style you would expect. It's all just a disappointing beginning to a franchise that may die before it even flaps its wings.
If you are going to see this movie, you have to see it in IMAX 3D. It costs a little extra but for this type of movie it is definitely worth the money. This film is full of action scenes that look amazing in IMAX 3D.I did feel a little dizzy after the movie but I usually do not feel good after a 3D experience.I enjoyed this film a lot even though it is not my type of movie. It was very entertaining and even funny in certain scenes. I really like Cameron Diaz as an actress and I do think she did a very good job in this movie. I even liked Seth Rogen in his role and I was not sure he can play a hero, but he did very well. Christoph Waltz was brilliant but it is n surprise, I think he is one of the greatest actors of our time. I recommend this movie highly, you will definitely have a good time watching it in 3D.
This movie was totally awesome in 3D. Directed by Michel Gondry and starring Edward Furlong, Cameron Diaz, Tom Wilkinson, Seth Rogen, and Christoph Waltz this movie is very entertaining. I was very glad that I have decided to see it in 3D, because it made the movie that much better. The storyline is not very original but the film is packed with awesome action scenes and special effects and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film. The soundtrack of the movie is also very good and I caught myself dancing in my seat couple of times. All the actors in the film did a very good job and I was so happy Cameron Diaz is in the movie, because she is so unbelievably hot and also a great actress. Seth Rogen was kind of weird in this role as a crime fighting vigilante, I wish they have chose a different actor. Do not get me wrong, I love Seth Rogen, he is an awesome comedian but he was not right for this role. Tom Wilkinson was very good and charming as Britt Reid, however I thought that Seth Rogen would have been perfect for this character. Overall, I thought that the movie rocked and I definitely recommend seeing it in 3D, because it is 3 times better that way.
Green Hornet IMAX 3D
So the extra money for IMAX 3D experience was totally worth it. This movie was meant to be seen in IMAX 3D. I felt like I was part of the crazy action scenes that they have in this movie. Seeing Cameron Diaz in 3D is not a bad thing either, she is smoking hot and it is weird to say because she is like 40 years old. The special effects and action scenes were mind-blowing and totally entertaining. I thought that the director Michel Gondry did an amazing job shooting and directing this movie. I just do not really understand why Seth Rogen was given the role of a crime fighter because he is not very believable in it. After seeing him playing a pothead loser over and over again it is hard to see him in any other role. Besides that all the actors were perfectly cast and did a good job. I recommend seeing this movie in IMAX 3D because it is packed with action scenes and awesome special effects.
Seth Rogan and Jay Chou star in the latest remake of the super hero classic, Green Hornet. I don’t really understand why the hornet is green but that’s how it has been for as long as the franchise has been around. I personally have never heard of a green hornet. The movie was very good in my opinion. I was a little hesitant to see Seth Rogan, not known for his physical prowess, as a super hero. I was absolutely mistaken. Both Seth and Jay did amazing jobs in their respective roles. The one thing that stood out about the movie was that it was very “cool.” The dialogue was cool, the action was cool, the car was extremely cool and everything else about the movie was cool. I have never seen anything about the Green Hornet before this movie but I have heard of it before. After this movie, I am going to look into the franchise because I very much enjoyed the movie and it turned me onto the Green Hornet as a super hero. I recommend this movie to anyone.
Green Hornet is the newest superhero movie starring Seth Rogan and Jay Chou. I believe the Green Hornet is first based on a radio program from the 1930s, so it is very old. This is a totally revamped version though. After the death of his father, Britt Reid (Seth Rogan) teams up with Kato (Jay Chou) who was his father’s assistant to become a masked crime fighting team. The movie was absolutely awesome. I am a fan of every aspect of this movie. I already enjoy super hero movies and Seth Rogan is one of my favorite actors because he is super funny. Seth and Jay do a great job in this film. They are hilarious and have a great chemistry with each other. They are very believable for the parts in this movie. Whoever did the casting for this film did an excellent job. The action is also very cool. There are plenty of battles and explosions. My favorite part of the movie was definitely the car. I went to the LA auto show a few weeks back and they had this car on display there. It was very cool to see it in action in the movie. The story was great and the movie wasn’t too long. Overall, great movie.
