The Green Hornet (2011)

Green Hornet

after his father's sudden death, Britt took over the company n became the new publisher of the newspaper "The Daily Sentinel". he had only been partying all his life, taking over the company was more like a game than caring for the newspaper's reputation. his driver happened to be a kungfu n technology expert, who installed various weapons into one of the cars. coincidentally, they managed to stop a robbery. from there, Britt wanted to form a superhero team with his driver, to fight crime, calling themselves "The Green Hornet".

unlike any Marvel's superhero movie, such as Iron Man or Fantastic four, The Green Hornet was less impressive because of its character. Britt especially was an eyesore, he was difficult to look at, having the worst kind of attitude. one just couldn't agree with him doing everyone else any good but causing unnecessary trouble. Kato (the driver or sidekick) on the other hand, whom i expect to have a clownish character, was an even more reliable character if compared to Britt. at some point, i even doubt that he might suddenly turned out to be a robot or some sort!

  1. When I was a kid, The Green Hornet was a very popular cartoon that came on TV every Saturday. It's so fun to see it turned into a movie with the characters coming to life!

    Love Cameron Diaz and Tom Wilkinson!

    Thanks for the review, Levian!

  2. Yeah, absolutely agree! Jay is better than Seth, and Jay's performance in this movie is outstanding! :)

  3. i think i'll skip watching this movie as i've heard lots of negative remarks of it.

  4. ron:
    i had never get to watch green hornet on the cartoon before. it wasn't from marvel i would assumed? too bad the character Tom was assigned for this movie was the main but not one of the best.

    he was, wasn't he? n basically putting everything he loves into the movie as well.

    oh? you wouldn't imagine giving it a chance like you do to human?
