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.

A few weeks ago I saw Kick-Ass on the TV and was surprised to find myself enjoying it despite the uncomfortable sight of an 11 year old girl wasting the bad guys with knives and hand-guns. With the premise of the Green Hornet being similar I thought I'd give it a go when it was shown last night. When I say similar I refer to the pairing of an incompetent wannabe superhero with a partner that knows their stuff, in this a case a rich boy slacker and a Chinese martial arts and engineering whizz. However, unlike the lead character in Kick-Ass, who is reasonably engaging and likeable, the lead character here is incredibly irritating with his over-enthusiastic, 'wow, let's do something crazy man' antics. I'd go as far to say this is one of the most irritating performances I've ever seen in a film so much so that I long gave up before the end. Why others giving 3-5 stars don't feel similarly is perplexing.

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.

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.

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.

This was the second 3D film I bought this year. The first was Saw The Final Chapter, which was also very good but which I sold after watching once because I wasn't sure I'd watch it again. This film I have seen twice already. I like this one because I like the genre of Vigilante super hero or non super hero (like "Kiss Ass") films (e.g. Marvel and DC Comics ones). This film has it all comedy, superb fighting scenes and amazing 3D special effects. The Green Hornet is a funny character but Kato steals the show with his fantastic creative engineering skills/knowledge and martial arts ability, without Kato, the Green Hornet would be dead. I watch this on a Sony LX903 (top of the range TV in 2010 and with no cross talk) and a firmware upgraded Playstation 3 (60gb original model) and it's a great showcase for a 3D film. There aren't many 3D blu ray films available in the UK to date, even ones like "Narnia - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" which appeared in 3D at the cinema isn't available in 3D yet, most of the 3D blu rays that are available at the moment are documentary and/or nature type, which is fine but if you're a film fan like me and have the gear, then you would like more choice. Let's hope they don't keep us waiting for future 3D releases, I'm hoping the "Green Lantern" will be released on 3D blu ray like "The Green Hornet" was, i.e. at the same time as the 2D blu ray was.
