Turns out, Michel Gondry has crafted an irreverently funny, ultramodern take on the 1930s radio serial.

The Green Hornet doesn't suck. But don't expect it to hang together either, what with the clashing tones and melting logic.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
It's off-putting, rude, misshapen, and more often than not hysterically funny. The second half, sadly, is an ear-splitting train wreck.

Some of the car gadgetry, Kato's specialty, looks cool...The Green Hornet is otherwise colorless, numbing and sluggishly paced.

While this latest Rogen-penned iteration is a game try, it feels a bit like he's trying to make a volume out of a footnote.

In a last-minute tweak, the production has also been meaninglessly 3-D-ified - never mind that there's nothing whatsoever 3-D-ish going on....

GREEN HORNET - A REAL STINKER

HANDS DOWN THE ABSOLUTE WORST SCRIPT OF ANY MOVIE I'VE SEEN IN MANY YEARS. The writers would have done themselves a really big favor if they had listened to the Green Hornet radio program, The...

Catch this one on Netflix

By co-moviebuff-gatlin
This movie had some funny scenes in the beginning. The action scenes were decent, Jay Chou was excellent but there just wasn't enough story for me. When Seth Rogen co-rote this movie, why did he...

By channarystar
I loved this movie although I thought that giving it a pg13 rating was odd just bc there is a lot of fowl language and ppl get killed hard. The acting was good, lots of laughs!! I saw it as a date...

The Green Hornet is TERRIBLE.

By Superdelightful
The Green Hornet needs to have less of pothead Seth Rogen. Unfortunately, the only kind of 'less' that would've helped this film is reducing Rogen's role to the point of replacing him entirely with...

Green Hornet

Good Storyline. Bad acting and bad screen writting. Don't spend the money for IMAX experience....

Even better than the previews

By AMC360
Totally awesome!! Fantastically action-packed. Fantastically hilarious. The best 3D I've seen yet. The entire movie was in 3D, not just a couple of scenes like most movies. I finally felt like I...

Michel Gondry did not dissapoint!

I love Michels' work and think for such an artistic director to do a wham bam shoot'em up, it can be a scary endeavor. But after seeing it he really brings a great artistic sense, and in interesting...
