Quick Review #3: The Green Hornet

Man... The Green Hornet.  The first time I saw the trailer for this flick I didn't pay it much attention.  I've got this illogical automatic response to movies with Seth Rogan in them.  I just automatically want to avoid everything to do with them.  I forget what first got me interested.  I think it was likely seeing the trailer again in front of a movie a couple months ago. 

The gag at the end of the trailer with the gas gun killed me.  It was hilarious.  From that point I decided I would give this a chance and go in expecting nothing but a "popcorn flick" as a friend of mine likes to call them.  Senseless violence, comedy and tragic decisions for the sake of the plot. 

This is exactly what the Green Hornet delivers.  Take that for what you will.  Don't expect the next Iron Man or the next Inception and you will enjoy the ride.

3.5/5

The gas-gun gag still got me in the theatre even though I knew it was coming!
