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.

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/

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.

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.

I like Seth, you like Seth. We all like Seth. BADLY miscast, here. And so was the director.

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.

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.

A childish film written from a grade school perspective with neither quality nor excitement.

Derivative of several molds and unable to really take command of any of them.

Aside from a brief split-screen sequence and a few deft special-effects, there's almost no sizzle to this goofy take on superheroics.

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.

Um longa que não só desaponta pelo roteiro, mas também (e aí o choque é maior) pela direção nada inspirada de seu realizador.

Part origin story, part spoof, part bromance -- the movie can't decide. It winks at itself constantly, but only to hide its cluelessness.
