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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

I don't understand all the low reviews for this film?? I'm not sure what people were expecting... Maybe the reason i liked it was because my expectations were so low after seeing so many mid range reviews across the board!

Ok so it's by no means an outstanding film, but I thought there was some very funny bits in it!! There's also a decent amount of action and great special effects! It's typical harmless hollywood fun... and great entertainment for a saturday afternoon!

i recommend this film to anyone, don't let the bad reviews put you off!!

For those who remember the original this film may miss the mark, but accept it for what it is - a tongue in check, fun, action film and you won't be disappointed. Critically disect it and you may find it wanting. I suggest you relax and enjoy the ride.

I had heard this was an awful film and as such avoided it... That was until I was on a plane and it was the film that was being shown... So I watched just to see how it goes and it really surprised me.

The directing and the acting were both good in a spoof film kind of way and the action scenes really don't disappoint. It kept me watching right until the very end and made me think, "you know what, that was really good"... that is why I am here reviewing it... I came to buy it.

There are some parts, which for sure are less than plausible, however you can ignore those because the entertainment factor does compensate and the main thing the good guys win in the end.

Format: Blu-ray
After spending what seemed like an eternity in development hell, 2011's The Green Hornet turns out to be a lot better than its tortured production history would suggest even if it's more an entertaining diversion than a top tier superhero flick. Rather than going the period route of earlier radio superhero movies like The Shadow or The Phantom but instead reinventing the character for a more cynical age and riffing on the rationale behind superheroes in general and the Green Hornet's reasons for posing as a criminal in particular, it does turn into a bit of a tightrope act at times. Rather than the determined crimefighter of his earlier incarnations, here Seth Rogan's Brett Reid starts his double-life more as a prank than anything else while the film acknowledges the fact that his trusty sidekick is the real star of the partnership, and with Jay Chou genuinely charismatic in the role it's little surprise that Kato is elevated to the real brains and brawn behind the partnership.

Cameron Diaz's Lenore Case, Reid's trusty secretary, is a bit more of a problem. Where previous versions never quite knew what to do with her, she does get a bit more to do here than stand on the sidelines as a cheerleader, here inadvertently providing the criminal intelligence and game plan for the duo. But in resisting the temptation to turn her into just the girlfriend - despite both Reid and Kato's constant efforts - the film does tend to turn her more into a vehicle for plot exposition than a character in her own right, showing some signs of desperation by trying to throw her fans the odd bit of ditzy comedy to beef up the part.

Format: DVD
The production values of "The Green Hornet" are lavish and the movie clearly cost a great deal to make - it also did well at the box office in the US, taking nearly $100m during its run in the summer of 2011. Having said that it's difficult to decide what audience it was aimed at. It's too violent for children, even though the violence is mostly spoof, and it's insufficiently faithful to its 1930's origins as a radio and comic book series (and in the 1960's a tv series) in America for it to appeal greatly to lovers of that genre. Likewise it's insufficiently funny or sophisticated to please grown ups. But box office receipts count and accordingly plenty of people out there must have thought it a worthwhile night out.

Seth Rogen plays a wealthy pillock, who has inherited a newspaper, and in order to have some fun as a kind of undercover superhero styles himself the Green Bee initially, until a colleague on his newspaper points out that he sounds like a sewing circle (one of the few really funny lines in the entire movie) and suggests Green Hornet is more scary. The Green Hornet will wreak havoc across Los Angeles while doing good along the way. The movie offers comic book action, fights, car chases and general demolition but, as I say, delivers few really big laughs and one comes away feeling that "The Green Hornet" was, regrettably, an unnecessarily expensive production and even in other more sophisticated hands would probably have been a dull enterprise.

Yes the film is full of fun, portraying an annoying character, party animal, come 'heir' to his fathers business having visions of being a super-hero ( with the help of gadget genius,car mechanic, martial arts expert not to mention ''chief'' coffee maker )
'Britt Reid' ( The Green Hornet )(Seth Rogen) couldn't do it without 'Kato'(Jay Chou), but needs reminding of his short comings...frequently.
The pair take on 'Los Angeles' Crime-Boss and a corrupt Political figure with some great action sequences and a much modified car.
Not the best 'Super-Hero' figure, however it'll put a smile on yer' face for sure.
