Reviews

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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Fun 13 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually quite good! 2 July 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere near as bad as they say 15 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Green Hornet- much better trhan people say it is. 25 July 2011
Format:DVD
Before watching this I had heard many bad comments on it which put me off. The film however suprised me it is nowhere near as bad as the 1-2 star reviews suggest. The chemistry between Rogan and the actor who plays Kato is great. He is no Bruce Lee but decent nether the less. Cameron Diaz adds some glamour to the production and Cristoph Waltz as usual pulls out and outstanding scary yet comic bad guy performance. James Franco cameo is also good. Watch this film it's a fun, easy watching action film with some good performances, not amazing but a good fim, worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good buzz.... clever if cliched. 29 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray
The blu-ray transfer is awesome, crisp details and colours, very smooth in all panning shots, no aliasing. Audio is not going to win awards but delivers when it has to. The film itself is a great action yarn and a good pseudo-action-hero romp. Some who marked it one star just missed the irony I suspect. The film does let itself down a tad in that is looses its identity in some scenes. Over brutal in places just seconds after slapstick comedy. The timing is a bid uncomfortable. But that the only downer really. I think its a clever movie with loads of laughs, wooden casting somewhat but well worth the tenner... Older kids will love it. Not for under 10s.
