Green Hornet (2011)

When it's over, the only good thing about this film was the car.  Everything else was a bunch of fluff.  Such a wasted shame.  Seth Rogan's in the title role as newspaper heir, Britt Reid, who band together with his late father's assistant, Kato (Jay Chou), to fight crime on the streets of Los Angeles.  Britt strikes me as a juvenile delinquent with too much time on his hands and a boy trapped in a man's body.  I suppose Rogan's just the right actor to play such a role.  Too bad the producers went this route, because Rogan was annoying, uninteresting, and at times, if I could, I would've liked to photoshop him out of the picture completely.  I think it would've been more interesting to watch Kato and Reid's office assistant (Cameron Diaz) fight crime. 

My rating: 2 out of 5
