THE SPOILER ZONE
In this half of the story, the new team of Green Hornet and Kato begin their reign of terror against the gangs of the city, work through a number of Green Hornet costumes, before settling on the `classic' one, and discover the Black Hornet's identity, and that he is going to steal a new stealth bomber being developed in a building in the middle of Century City, and use it do drop its nuclear bomb on said city as a demonstration of its effectiveness to potential buyers. And he leaves the Hornet and Kato tied to the giant working typewriter situated on top of Britt Reid's newspaper building so they can have a front-row view.Read more ›
This book feels a lot more like a movie than a comic book. For instance there's the montage of scenes where Britt Reid Jnr tries on a series of new Hornet costumes interspersed with him beating up hoods and receiving fighting lessons from the two Katos, finally concluding to stick with the classic look and matching Kato toe to toe in a fight after being beaten the first time.
Then the action heats up quickly. Black Hornet and his alter ego are out for the destruction of the Reid dynasty and Century City while developing a nuclear stealth bomber with the intention of "getting revenge for Nagasaki and Hiroshima". This is one of many references Smith feels would be in a Japanese person's psyche, and has Reid repeatedly call the new Kato "dragon lady" and wonders how the new Clutch could be related to Kato as he's a "round eye". Yeah, as a half-Japanese myself (and a "round-eye") I found these tedious references a bit insulting and dumb, but I guess that's what you get with Kevin Smith sometimes.
There's also a cheesy setup where Green Hornet and Kato are tied up at the top of the Sentinel's building which has a giant working typewriter (yeah, really) and they face death by key stroke. Ridiculous to see, I'm not sure it would've worked on the big screen as it's just too much of a throwback. I mean why build a typewriter on a roof? And why have the villain tie them up and leave before seeing them killed?Read more ›
