I just posted my review of ‘The Green Hornet’ (check it out here), and after letting things ruminate for a couple days, I’ve decided that maybe Seth Rogen should go back to doing what he does best. Being a slacker.
Oh sure, he’s a slacker in ‘The Green Hornet,’ but he attempts to become a non-slacker by fighting bad guys, and it all goes wrong. Oh so wrong.
I gave the movie 2.5 out of 5 Reels, and that’s being generous. There was no chemistry among any of the characters — well, except for maybe Kato and Black Beauty (that’s the car) – and the dialogue seemed like it was written on a late-night bender. Also, I’m pretty sure I saw the shadow of a cue card in a few scenes.
On the other hand, my 16-year-old son and his buddy absolutely loved ‘The Green Hornet,’ so maybe you have to be a teenage boy to get it. I promised them that I’d say something nice about the movie, so here it is: the car is awesome.
