Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is the son of LA’s most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene – until his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s more industrious and inventive employees, Kato (Jay Chou), they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. But in order to do this, they decide to become criminals themselves – protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets.
Using all his ingenuity and skill, Kato builds the ultimate in advanced retro weaponry, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car equal parts firepower and horsepower. Rolling in a mobile fortress on wheels and striking the bad guys with Kato’s clever gadgets, The Green Hornet and Kato quickly start making a name for themselves, and with the help of Britt’s new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they begin hunting down the man who controls LA’s gritty underworld: Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). But Chudnofsky has plans of his own: to swat down The Green Hornet once and for all.
That’s not to say it’s without flaws. Though it looks funny and has some decent action scenes, Seth Rogen is playing Seth Rogen. This is a doubt everyone had when he has announced as the lead but I kept hope, but now it’s clear that he is playing a variation of himself instead of an action hero re-invention some people were hoping for. Christoph Waltz looks great in the brief appearance here, and Jay Chou is actually stealing more scenery than Rogen. It doesn’t look like an abomination, but not a great superhero actioner either. It worries me that the movie has been dumped into the month of January and is being converted to 3-D, though.
Waiting for more footage to make up my mind. Trailer is below.
