The Green Hornet Reviews
November 30, 2020
Though based loosely on the 1930's radio series and the TV shows and comics that followed, this 2011 adaptation feels entirely like a Seth Rogen teen comedy.

It is a consistently fun, entertaining and breezy film.

A pretty enjoyable film. Perhaps not good enough for multiple viewings, but entertaining while it lasted.

"The Green Hornet" is a decently entertaining film, and nothing more spectacular than that and never comes close to living up to its full potential.

Gondry directs, Rogen writes. It's exactly what you would expect from that mixture. [Full review in Spanish].

I would have predicted that Gondry was the Next Big Thing in sf filmmaking after seeing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in 2004. But now? Now he is the director of a film that represents the nadir of the superhero film/

While for the most part the film lacks Gondry's singular creative flair, it's still a fun ride, with unexpectedly funny touches and exciting action sequences.

This is a rather mediocre action adventure that quickly gets stuck in neutral, then resorts to a final act that is extremely violent and ugly.

If you're looking for something that's a bit scruffy and off the beaten track, but still full of giant explosions, you'll definitely want to check out Green Hornet.
August 25, 2017
There are enough genuinely funny, self-aware gags and throwaway lines to keep you entertained.
August 10, 2013
The whole film feels fairly self indulgent on Seth Rogen's part. It's rather dull and quite a letdown.
June 30, 2013
Aside from the James Franco cameo, this story is one disappointment after another.

I like Seth, you like Seth. We all like Seth. BADLY miscast, here. And so was the director.
September 28, 2012
A pleasingly average superhero movie whose greatest triumph is avoiding disaster.
September 21, 2012
This had potential to be something of an action thrill ride, or at least a comedic, campy take on the usual superhero formula, but what we end up with is a directionless, pointless backdrop for blowing things up with some martial arts thrown in for kicks.
December 13, 2011
There are some good ideas here but they're buried under masses of conventional superhero dross and half hearted execution. This is one vigilante who should really just leave all the hard work to the police.
