For those of you who don't know, The Green Hornet opened this week. I'll start by saying that I'm not the biggest Seth Rogan fan out there. I don't enjoy the scripts he writes or the characters he plays. In this movie, I found myself eating my own words, with lots of butter and salt.
Seth Rogan plays Britt Reid, the young-playboy son of wealthy newspaper mogul, James Reid. Due to James Reid's untimely death, he is left in charge of one of the Largest and most powerful newspaper companies in the industry. Along the way he meets Kato, a former employee and marial arts expert, together, the two decide to enforce and protect the law in the only way they deem correct, by breaking it.
Jay Chou stars in his first Hollywood movie as Kato, The Green Hornet's sidekick/driver and in my opinion does a damn good job. He's no Bruce Lee, but he never tries to be, thats what I enjoyed about his performance.
The Special effects were pretty neato, however, I didn't find myself enjoying the 3D aspect at all, it just ended up hurting my eyes. Kato vision was a pretty cool idea, I won't dig into it that much, if you are interested in the movie, I'd go see it for just the action scenes alone with the amount of special effects and the over-the-top-action.
All in all, this was a decent movie based on a Television series (as the tv show was based on the original radio show, The Green Hornet) that did the original proud (in my opnion at least). Bottom line, if you want an action packed movie with a "comicbook-ish" feel to it, go see The Green Hornet, but don't bother with the 3D, I didn't find it worth it.
