Clif-Notes: The Green Hornet

I hopped over to the theater this morning to check out Green Hornet. Hornet tells the story of Britt Reid as he comes to deal with the death of his media-mogul father by donning a suit and a mask with his man-servant Kato and fight crime by causing crime. Which probably makes more sense when I'm not explaining it.
First off, I was very skeptical about Seth Rogen writing and staring in this. He doesn't really strike me as the action kinda guy. However, he put a lot of time and work into this movie, including losing 30 pounds for it so he at least has my respect for his dedication.
And that was really my only worry and it actually played out pretty well. This was a really fun movie. Yes it had cheese writing at point. Yes it had less-than-stellar acting in scenes. I didn't care. It's not an amazing movie and I can't say you should run out. If somebody hated it, I could actually see them having a valid reason. But not I. Awesome, fun flick. Far from the best thing ever but very average and very good.


  1. This flick was so much better than I thought it would be. I was surprised. That said, I think my favorite part may have been Kato's rap song during the closing credits. Gotta find a copy of that jam.

  2. I do hope that you literally hopped. If you did I will actually make an effort to go see this movie.
