    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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The film's only unqualified success is the end title sequence-because it's genuinely stylish, because it looks like it was shot in genuine 3-D and, most of all, because it's the end. show more

    Hiring this sensitive fantasist (Gondry) to make the superhero saga The Green Hornet is like hiring satirist John Waters to make "Rambo." Hard to think of a more mystifying mismatch of filmmaker and material. show more

    Turns out, Michel Gondry has crafted an irreverently funny, ultramodern take on the 1930s radio serial. show more

    Never achieves sufficient traction to go the blockbuster distance. show more

    While this latest Rogen-penned iteration is a game try, it feels a bit like he's trying to make a volume out of a footnote. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    A big, boisterous action-comedy - a funny, exciting and intentionally goofy summer movie that just happens to arrive in the middle of January. show more

    Kato's often the best part of the movie. Britt calls him a "human Swiss army knife," and he's right; Kato is not a sidekick, but a fully formed hero who's full of surprises. 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.

    Funny and well done. The signoff song, \"Saying Goodbye,\" by the Greenhornes (get it?) alone was a thrill.

    Stupid, and not true at all to the comic.

    Not a very good movie at all. For one there is way too much language for this movie to be PG-13. If you call saying the word Sh@#$ more than a dozen times and d@#$ and the worst p@#$% then somebody needs to re-evaluate the PG-13 rating. I know I don\'t want my 13 year old or younger exposed to this kind of language. I did not enjoy this movie at all and I am glad I only rented this for a $1.00 because it certainly isn\'t worth any more than that. Parents beware of this movie.

    This movie is no Dark Knight or Spider-man or even Iron man. But did i enjoy it, yeah because it is a staight out good movie. It is not the best but it is was still worth the price of admission. P:S I dont see Seth Rogen as a crime fighter.
