    The Green Hornet doesn't suck. But don't expect it to hang together either, what with the clashing tones and melting logic. show more

    There's nothing here but a concept and a marketing and merchandising strategy, at the center of which somebody - oh, no - had to come up with an actual movie. show more

    Some of the car gadgetry, Kato's specialty, looks cool...The Green Hornet is otherwise colorless, numbing and sluggishly paced. show more

    Eh, this movie was OK. Not the best I have seen. I laughed a couple times in this movie, but definately not worth to buy.

    I\'ve had the movie for about a month now, and never saw it till tonight. In all honesty, It was not nothing like the tv series. The writers/ producers made Britt Reid out to be nothing but an alcohilic, as well as a playboy, sleeping/making out w/girls every he could. To me, this movie, was not worth the money, tha I spent it. I\'d be better off watch\'n a Smurf\'s movie, or, Pee Wee Herman movie, in place of this one. But of colurse, I\'ll keep it, and add it tomy collection of movies, from tv shows that I liked to watch as a kid. But please, don\'t make anymore of these kinda m ovies, or, I\'ll not even spend 1 cent on them! YUCK!

    Surprisingly good. Seth Rogan was excellent as the dumb rich playboy who falls into the Batman role - very funny. His sidekick Kato (originally played in the TV series by Bruce Lee), played by Jay Chou, is great too. The Villain is hilarious too - a total badass who finds him self constantly underestimated by everyone. Cameron Diaz was disappointing as Lenore Case. Edward James Olmos was good in his supporting role.
