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.

Aside from the James Franco cameo, this story is one disappointment after another.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

This movie would a helluva lot better with paper mache sets.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
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.

A dud, that has a few bright spots.

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.

[It] clocks in at a bloated 118 minutes. There is not, I promise you, 118 minutes worth of vital plot, special effects or comic business in this movie.

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

August 15, 2011
A childish film written from a grade school perspective with neither quality nor excitement.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 3, 2011
Derivative of several molds and unable to really take command of any of them.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
June 1, 2011
Aside from a brief split-screen sequence and a few deft special-effects, there's almost no sizzle to this goofy take on superheroics.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
May 1, 2011 uneven, disastrously overlong piece of work.

April 4, 2011
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.

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.

Seeing this movie in 3-D adds nothing to the experience. The most in-your-face thing about the movie is the crippling insecurity of all the main players, which rendered it painfully difficult to care about them. Waltz is delightful.

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