  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
