Ali Gray

A pleasingly average superhero movie whose greatest triumph is avoiding disaster.

Hornet fans across generations will enjoy connecting this modern version to its pop-cultural roots stretching back more than seven decades,

Give me loose, idiosyncratic, comic meandering over stone-faced business-as-usual any day. It isn't the movie you're expecting, but it's got its authors' grubby handprints all over it.

Joshua Starnes

For what problems it does have it is a genuinely different take on this kind of material with a firm focus on action, character and humor. No one else should ever attempt to make a superhero movie quite like this, but for The Green Hornet it works.

Houston Press

Gondry and Rogen walk a fine line between fairly brainless bro-medy and occasionally knowing examination of the superhero genre.

With Jäger, it'd probably be a blast.

What Culture

Gondry's biggest success is recognising that superheroes can still be funny, and embracing that in every part of this film.

Really inventive.

The Standard

Rogen has re-created (Britt Reid) as a buffoonish, almost Maxwell Smart-ish hero, with a childlike ego that is one of the more infuriating elements of the film... (but) where the film really works is when Gondry cuts loose.

Creative Loafing

Seth Rogen, superhero? It's nearly impossible to wrap the mind around such an outlandish idea, almost on the same level as Sarah Palin as U.S. president or Ricky Gervais as the next recipient of the Golden Globes Lifetime Achievement Award.

Simon Foster

Perhaps we should be grateful that The Green Hornet is a perfectly enjoyable Seth Rogen movie... But it's a major missed opportunity when you consider the Michel Gondry spectacle that it came so close to being.

The Skinny

There is no grand sense of justice or even vengeance driving The Green Hornet; it is just that kicking ass might be fun, and it turns out it is.

Andreas Heinemann

A bit shapeless as a story but relies on the charm of Rogen and a few big set pieces to connect the dots.

It has more of a sting than you might think.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

I'd hoped for better, but expected worse, which means that Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet is at best -- or at worst -- a mixed bag of a movie.

Laramie Movie Scope

It has what is expected of this kind of movie, cool visual effects, martial arts action, car chases, explosions, shootouts and lots of James Bond-style gadgets.

It is a patchy film, haltingly paced, but the visual invention is astonishing.

And now here it is, and we see it really was a joke after all. Thing is, it's supposed to be.

The Green Hornet looks and feels as if it were made by a bunch of (highly talented) 10-year-old boys. Taking any pleasure in the film depends on your willingness to let your inner-child run rampant.
