The Green Hornet

I'm home from University for the weekend, so I managed to convince my parents to take me to dinner and a movie. We saw The Green Hornet in 3D, and while I went in not knowing what to expect (not having seen the TV series or read any of the comics), I came out much the same. It was a strange mix of a comedy and a superhero movie, although it wasn't a spectacular example of either genre. I suppose that a good comedy/superhero movie could be made, but in this case I was extremely underwhelmed. The plot was predictable, the villain was pretty lame, and the comedy often felt forced, and never made me laugh out loud. I'm not saying it was terrible, it was somewhat entertaining, just not spectacular. I'll have to find some people who are more familiar with The Green Hornet and see how they liked it ... for all I know they could have hit the nail right on the head. Although were that the case, I can't imagine finding many true fans out there...

  1. Not familiar with the green hornet, but it seems people are making a lot of real life movies out of comic books nowadays, and most of the time it's not precisely like the comic books i know that for sure!
