My Green Hornet (2011) Review

This wasn't a bad flick, but I wish I would've waited for it to hit dollar theaters, to be honest. Keep in mind, I'm not a Hornet fanboy. I hate writing long reviews more than I hate reading them. So...

Pros:
  • A few decent laughs (of course), definitely should be a lot funnier to people with easier senses of humor
  • A few cool fight scenes, choreography better than most
  • Pretty steady, no big lull where you feel like taking a nap
Cons:
  • Simple storyline (masked crime fighter movie, what'd you expect?)
  • Though played by a great actor, the villain isn't a great source of suspense
  • Seth Rogen plays Seth Rogen, just like Robert Downey Jr played Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man
Overall:

I'd give it a 7/10; watchable, amusing, but not great. Unless you're rich or a fanboy, wait for it to come out in the dollar theater.

  1. I haven't gotten out to watch this yet but I don't think I will go out of my way to see this. I'm not a big seth rogen fan so meh.

  2. I'll probably catch this during matinee. My sister saw a test screening and said it was pretty decent.

    SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    Is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    Single Swingle

    Casualidad sopla la sangre
    de alguno señor desconocido
    durante los pocos restantes
    momentos del resplandor de faroles

    que se vislumbran tras el follaje
    flameando de las obsesiónes
    igual efimero como gotas
    del cinzano de la soledad –

    En aquel tiempo me levanta
    dentro uno incidente avejentado
    que en seguida palidece
    al camouflaje de abstraccion;

    chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
    ojos significan aún; con todo
    el sueño que hube evacuado
    tu escudriñas nuevamente.

    My Spanish poetry!

    LE FRUIT DU CIEL

    Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

    Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

    À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.

  4. Mythbusters did a special episode dedicated to some of the stunts in this movie, disproved the possibility of them all. I know we are supposed to suspend belief, but it still kinda ruined the movie for me.
