What Did You Think? Post your Green Hornet review!

01.14.2011

GREEN HORNET seems like it's just going to be one of those films that splits audiences right down the middle. I saw it earlier this month and really didn't like it much at all. But Chris Bumbray reviewed it and liked it enough to give it a 7/10. And he audience I saw it with seemed to really be getting along with it. But then I see JoBlo reader/MFC user AJJara post "I think Green Hornet may be the worst movie of all time. I walked out and I have never walked out of a movie."

It's clear there will be a lot of debate over THE GREEN HORNET and its merit so, as we often do, we're going to leave this article up all weekend with the Strike Backs open and encourage you to post YOUR review of THE GREEN HORNET. If you're so inclined, you can even post a review to your Movie Fan Central profile.

I say this often but PLEASE NO SPOILERS. There are some funny jokes and cameos you don't want to give away to people who haven't seen the film yet. And, as always, no attacking, flaming or insulting other users.

Worst Movie ever made since "Disaster Movie".
That asian Chou said in English "Want to see something cool?"
it sounded like "Quanto Si Lumping Cooo?".
Green Hornet Epic Fail.
I'm giving 2 Thumbs Down for this Flop Movie.
3D? What 3D? I though the glasses were to block out the lame jokes from hurting our eyes?

Well...

Overall the film failed at pretty much everything the jokes were poor, Seth Rogen was just repulsive as Reid, The 3D was just terrible and i took my glasses off and made no difference also Michel Gindrys direction was all over the place and just did this shit for the paycheck. Christoph waltz, cameron diaz and jay chou owned this movie they were awesome especially chou, Kato vision was just epic, the action scenes were really good and were the movies strongest points.

Overall while a massive

Overall while a massive disappointment the film had its good points and they binked it up to a 3/5 stars

What the fuck is there a -10 thumbs down button or something??
The Green Hornet is awesome and loads of fun! Rogen is hilarious and witty as usual. Chou gives a very charismatic performance and stole every frame he was in. Diaz looked old, but still hot. Overall very few things didn't work in this movie.

9.7/10

This movie was bad as cat in the hat. I'm very mad I went against my better judgment and saw this garbage.

It was fun and better than I expected, with some well done action pieces as well. Waltz got lost in the shuffle, but that is my only real complaint.

Overall, I had a blast, but I have to say my expectations were really low, so it could only go up from there.

Pros : I was scared they would try to pass Rogen as a bad ass superhero, but thankfully, they instead played him as Kato's egomaniacal sidekick (which worked perfectly). Chou's performance as Kato was also really fun, so was his Kato-Vision and the fight scenes in general. The concept of the hero passing as a villain was also very interesting and refreshing. Also, kudos to Gondry for

Chou's performance as Kato was also really fun, so was his Kato-Vision and the fight scenes in general. The concept of the hero passing as a villain was also very interesting and refreshing. Also, kudos to Gondry for slipping in a bit of his visual crazyness even though this was a pretty by-the-numbers Hollywood action flick (Kato-Vision, the editing in the bounty scene, etc.)

Cons : What the hell, Waltz? You come off from playing one of the best villains of all time to this? Bloodnofsky (sigh) was ridiculous. Sure, he was funny from time to time, but damn, he wasn't scary at all. And him going berserk every time someone doubted his scariness didn't help either... Also, that fight scene between Britt and Kato at the middle of the movie just went on and on and on. Get on with it!

So I was still pleasurably surprised by the movie and I had the chance to see it in 2D, so I can't rate the 3D.

Great movie

Not excellent, but a solid 7.5/10. Rogen and Chou were awesome. Cameron Diaz was as unnecessary as usual. Gondry did a great job with his first turn at a big-budget movie.

60 thumbs down for a GREEN BAR?

I thought it was the red that were practically against the law around here. I think Hornet looked awful and I hope it does poorly ... but 60 down just for approving of it? Plain injustice.

optimusprime24 simply wrote he saw it and had a good time and 64 people gave him a thumbs down??? studboi69 says he liked it, and 46 people gave him a thumbs down. ApatowFan saw it and praised it some and 50 people gave him thumbs down??? Chill out will ya!

I agree with GreeneScreen, the ranking on these comments is freaking idiotic. If youre gonna give a negative thumbs down at least do it for a reason... not just because someone likes a movie you dont. Thats just stupid.

It was enjoyable. I thought Jay Chou was going bring down this whole movie, but he turned out to be the best character in the movie, while Rogen's character made me want to strangle him. Go ahead and hate me bitches!!!

I saw it last night with my girlfriend and we both enjoyed it a lot more than we thought we would. It was a fun movie that had some good laughs as well as some nice action it wasn't Oscar worthy but it was better than some other recent super hero movies.

Akin to visual dung.

Some cool bells and whistles...nice martial arts. I think the direction was done well, and the production values could be seen clearly...otherwise complete garbage. What killed this movie for me was the cast, with the only exception being Chou. Rogen can be funny at times in his films...but even for an action/comedy such as this he just doesnt have the right chops for it. I think with a different cast, aside from Chou, you could've had something more entertaining overall. To those who like it,

....

The action scenes were comparable to that of the worst and silliest James Bond movies. Seth Rogen...I still don't get his casting. I will say, I was forced to see it in 3D, and for one that was converted, it wasn't bad. But that doesn't make up for the giant piece of dinosaur shit this insult of a movie was.

7/10

A enjoyable, fresh look at a comic book, superhero type movie. Michel Gondry really dipped into something I would have never pegged him for; he definitely left his mark with some very cool stylistic bits. Cool fighting scenes and gadgets were plenty. I think people giving bad reviews don't like Rogen all that much, but Jay Chou is way underrated- he made the movie! As a good Kato should.

Main complaint: needed more Chudnofsky.

Definitely worth seeing.

OK. So I'm not a fanboy and I don't read comics. (although I write ideas for one sometimes. 3guysmakingcomics.com check it out) My only knowledge of The Green Hornet is when I saw Kato bust Robin's ass on youtube. Now with that being said, I don't know the tone of The Green Hornet and I want to know is it supposed to be comedic or does it just seem that way because it's Seth Rogen's script? And if so, Why did he make it comedic to begin with? Does anyone know? Like has he said in any interviews

Great? No.
Fun? Absolutely.
I had one major "geek" issue with the film though. Details here: [link] [SPOILER]

P.S. I, too, have not tired of Seth Rogen - yet. We may betting close, though.

5/10

A good sense of who its antagonists are, in a way that films like Iron Man didn't, but not much sense elsewhere. Worthy of half marks for the great action and for the brilliant Jay Chou. The trouble is that it feels like they belong in another movie. Rogen should have shouted less and dialled it back more. It's also way too long and the 3D is worthless. Catch it on DVD, unless you can catch a 2D screening somewhere.
