The Green Hornet (Quick Pick)


Sony Pictures


Rating: PG-13


Reason for the Rating: sequences of violent action, language, sensuality and drug content.


PopFam Rating: D+


Quick Summary: Wow, this is not a good movie. Yes, there are some redeeming qualities: If you own a 3D Blu-ray player, the 3D edition of the film is visually stunning. And...well, that's about it. Seth Rogen stars as (and wrote the script for) the Green Hornet, a Batman-like superguy with no special powers but lots of money. Jay Chou is his martial-arts/mechanical genius sidekick. Together they, well, they make a lot of crotch jokes, sexually harass female office workers, fight and call each other names, whine like babies, drink and experiment with drugs, and display torrid acting only made worse by the inane plot (how about driving half a car into an elevator and up a building?). In short, as much as I wanted to like this film, it's really only going to be fun for really immature boys who just like crotch jokes and things that blow up. Disappointing considering the richness of Rogen's source material.
