The Green Hornet Movie Review

The Green Hornet Movie ReviewMove aside James Bond for here come the cities two new superheroes, who don’t promise much but do some good fighting, kick ass stunts with punch lines in their very own green convertible. They call themselves “The Green Hornet”; now there’s a catch, two superheroes and one name? Well I guess the title really goes to the all-green snazzy looking ‘Black Beauty’ which has tricks that 007’s convertible forgot to be loaded up with.

Based on the 1930’s radio show, ‘The Green Hornet’ is directed by Michel Gondry.

This action-comedy superhero duo starring a much slimmed down Seth Rogen who plays Britt Reid a happy go lucky playboy, enjoying his life to the fullest until he becomes the sole heir to a publishing house Daily Sentinel, after the death of his father James Reid (played by Tom Wilkinson). Well that’s an easy way of becoming a millionaire without much of a hard work, he’s got the money, chicks, good looks what more can he ask for.

But wait! Realization dawns upon the spoil brat who didn’t see much of his father or listen to his philosophy which was spoken about life, once in a while. So he decides with the help of his father’s soft spoken mechanic Kato (played by the Taiwanese pop star/actor Jay Chou of ‘Initial D’ fame) who is much more resourceful than the brainless ever yakking Britt, who plans on saving the city from thugs, drug dealers and ‘the Bad Guys’ by disguising as the bad guys in order to get close and defeat them. While his father was on the right side of the law, fighting against corruption by writing about it in his papers, son Britt decides to break and take the law in his own hands by becoming a superhero (whose tactics are a running joke in the movie).

The onscreen chemistry between Britt and Kato as the partner-protagonist is great throughout and even after a new figure is added to this on going superhero dilemma. In comes Britt’s new blond secretary played by Cameron Diaz as Lenore Case; now having her on board is apparent that it is merely done for the ‘star power’. But as opposed to her boss Britt, this blonde has got more brains than the green hornet! Britt’s plan on trying to save the city by becoming the bad guys, back fires as they encounter the city’s underworld don Benjamin Chudnofsky (played by Christoph Waltz) who has vowed to kill the green hornet and his side kick and is also suffering from a midlife crisis (which is unusual as we don’t often get to see this side in ‘super villains’).

The script written by Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Fran Striker, George W. Trendle, don’t fail in their attempt to impress the audience with their new age of superheroes (where the side kick Kato does all the biff, baam, pow!). Thankfully they spare the audience on the costumes which aren’t like the usual superhero leather tight fighting slacks.

The Green Hornet Movie Review

The action sequences are brilliant; despite the fact it was shot in 2D and then unsuccessfully converted into 3D. The movie didn’t have to be converted in 3D at all, as the action, direction, music was just the same in 2D! The movie is a total weekend rocker for both fans or not of ‘The Green Hornet’, so grab hold of your popcorn and crunch on this new action-comedy in theatres.
