Green Hornet

So, I just saw the Green Hornet last night.  I didn't have all the much hope for the movie; Gizmodo had a pretty positive post about it, but then Rotten Tomatoes had it in the mid-40s, which is hardly a glowing endorsement. But, long story short, I actually enjoyed it a lot. Seth Rogan was his usual funny self, which worked here, and Christopher Waltz (the Nazi in Inglorious Basterds) made a great villain. However, while Kato had a great role, I didn't feel like Jay Chou played him all that well.
Nevertheless, the film's action was intense, and as this is partially a car blog, I feel the need to mention the many awesome cars this film had. The Black Beauty (the Green Hornet's car) was of course the star of the show, and deserved it, but there were plenty of other great cars for the auto-enthusiast to notice, including a Bugatti Veyron, Mosler, 300SL Gullwing, Ferrari 275, Nissan GTR, Honda NSX, and many others (sadly, none of these cars get any real action scenes).
Overall, a good popcorn flick, with a good mix of action and humor and some good actors. It won't be vying with King's Speech and True Grit for "best" film out now, but it's fun enough to justify spending the time,

  1. Some movies arent created to win awards, but just so that you can have a good time watching it. Green Hornet definitely feels like it falls into this category.

  10. I love Jay Chou for his musical talents and originality, but I have to say he really cannot act. Maybe he will get better with more practice in his upcoming movies. (Initial D 2) :D http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Initial_D_(film)

  17. I was saying in another post about this movie, that my first reaction to seeing the movie posters was a cross between Batman and Dick Tracy. How far off am I?
