Synopsis


The Green Hornet
The hard-partying son of L.A.'s most powerful media magnate realizes his true calling as a crime-fighting vigilante after his father perishes under suspicious circumstances in this big-screen adaptation of the popular radio serial, comic book, film, and television series originated by Lone Ranger creators Fran Striker and George W. Trendle. James Reid (Tom Wilkinson) single-handedly built a media empire, but unfortunately his industrious genes weren't passed down to his son, Britt (Seth Rogen). Irresponsible, slovenly, and frequently inebriated, Britt is shaken out of his drunken stupor upon receiving word that his father has died. Shortly after Britt learns that he has inherited the family business, he forges an unlikely alliance with Kato (Jay Chou), one of his father's star employees, and together the pair hatch a plan to pose as villains in order to get close to the city's most high-powered criminals. Outfitting their indestructible custom-made car, The Black Beauty, with the absolute latest in technology and high-tech weaponry -- and arming themselves to the teeth with an array of gadgets that would make Batman blush -- the masked duo hit the streets as The Green Hornet and Kato. As the public's fascination with the mysterious crime fighters hits an all-time high, Britt's resourceful secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), helps them to gather intelligence on notorious underworld kingpin Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz), a criminal who holds the entire city in the palm of his hand, and represents everything that Britt's father fought against. Little do the Green Hornet and Kato realize that Chudnofsky is already on to them, and that he's not about to go down without a fight. Rogen and frequent writing partner Evan Goldberg provide the screenplay, with visionary Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) handling directing duties. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I was lucky enough to get 2 free movie screening passes to see this a month before it was released in theaters and the main reason i first wanted to see this was for Jay Chou because i thought he was a good actor in Initial D. This was actually good, it had a lot of action in it mixed with comedy. Definitely something worth checking out. Never seen the old Green Hornet so i dont know how this lives up to it but I believe they did a good job. I might be adding this to my blu ray collection!

    The 3d quality of this movie is well above average compared to other non animated 3d blurays. The action shots look great in 3d. All around good movie.

    Ok this is a good movie some really good action sequences kato is great the car is great etc i definately enjoyed it... but i have 2 problems with this movie i don't like the way seth rogens charecter was written as an obnoxious inept jerk who throws tantrums and can't fight at all...this is just like his observe and report charecter all over again and that was a horrible movie. also the best buy ad has this movie listed as a blu-ray+DVD for $19.99 even on the shelf tag it says that so i bought it went home and it's just the blu-ray...no dvd thats false advertising. but the movie is good and i'm glad i got it.

    Best 3D flick in my collection....so far

    The reason I jumped on buying this, aside from the price was I remember seeing the trailer in 3D and it was pretty good just for being a trailer. I never watched it in the theater so, when I took this home it was a first time watch. I was impressed with the first sight of 3D during the nightclub explosion, but was thrilled at the content during the first fight scene and there on! The plot is alright and there is some funny parts, but honestly I bought it in hopes of having a movie with better 3D content than the other 3D-DVDs I own. So I wasnt disappointed with this purchase at all.
