Following the death of his father, Britt Reid, heir to his father's large company, teams up with his late dad's assistant Kato to become a masked crime fighting team.
My review: I know you all heard me ranting and raving about how I wanted to see this movie for months now. I mean I've been flailing and screaming to everyone how I was going to see it opening day but I just got around to it yesterday. Yes, I saw two movies in one day--I work hard so I splurged a litte. Anyways onward to my review. So the movie was so-so. The storyline could use a lot of help--I don't think the editors did a very good job on this. New characters kept on popping up at the strangest times and left me thinking "wtf?"
The comedy was on part though--it was a really funny movie. I loved Kato (Jay Chou). He was funny and just so hot *sigh* but onward! Bruce Lee would have been proud with this casting. Kato kicked some serious butt, and was such a good friend to Britt Reid even though the guy was a royal asshole. Britt (played by Seth Rogen) was a menace to everyone--mostly to himself though. Sometimes his character was a little over played and a touch overly dramatic and idiotic but I guess that was what Seth wanted to do.
Cameron Diaz (I didn't put her in the credits above) because well, I am not sure why she was even in this movie. Her character just kept on spewing out fun little facts (see the sarcasm?) that made no sense and just irritated the HELL out of me. Then when The Green Hornet and Kato goes to her for help she pepper sprays them in the face with mace or something and then just went on a tantrum that was completely overly, overly dramatic...
The bad guy in this movie was amazing! He was funny as hell!! Crazy but funny as hell.
This movie shouldn't have been made in all 3D. I think that was a waste of money and time. The action sequences I think were amazing in 3D but everything else was just a 3D wasteland.
All in all, this movie wasn't as good as all the hype. I expected better at first but then I found out Seth Rogan wrote this movie and I wanted to cry. Though I had fun during the comedy parts of this movie and with my best friend, I was kinda disappointed....but Jay Chou was hot and the car in the elevator scene? EPIC!
