    This action-packed movie features several episodes of the 1966 TV series edited together and released as a feature film. The story is about Britt Reid played by Van Williams who as the masked vigilante known as The green Hornet fights alongside his Far East martial-arts partner Kato played by the late Bruce Lee who is Britt's weapons specialist. On police records, they are criminals but they are heroes in order to get to the real criminal gangs and take them down. The real trouble arrives when Britt's secretary for the Daily Sentinel, Lenore Case played by Wende Wagner is kidnapped by henchmen who work for the evil District Attorney Frank P. Scanlon and both Britt and Kato are stunned, they both suit up and drive off in their car, the Black Beauty. This movie featuring compiled scenes of the cancelled TV show is a solid feature film. The Green Hornet (1974) gets a 8.9/10.

    Yes I watched this movie as I generally like modern comic adaptions. This however, was close to annoying. It is really hard to get a good comic so wrong, but they managed. If you think of it as persiflage it may have some credit, but even this is not convincing - a real pity.

    THIS REVIEW IS FOR BOTH GREEN HORNET FILMS STARRING BRUCE LEE. The Green Hornet (1974) This Film Is A Compilation Of Episodes From The 1966 TV Series, First The Green Hornet & Kato Must Take On A Group Of Wealthy Murderers, Then Take On A Mad Scientist With An H-Bomb, Before Finally Taking On A Chinese Street Gang. This Is The Role Which Got Lee Noticed By Director Wei Lo, Who Cast Lee As His Lead In Lee's First Film "The Big Boss", Which Became An International Success. Fury Of The Dragon (1976) Four More Episodes Released As A Feature Film As A Second Green Hornet Tribute To Bruce Lee. Episodes Comprise: Trouble For Prince Charming, Secret Of The Sally Bell, The Ray Is For Killing & Bad Belt On A 459-Silent. Although The Films Focus Is On These Four Episodes A Total Of 15 Episodes From The 26 Were Used For Additional Fight Sequences, These Aditional Scenes However Were Badly Edited Together. These Episodes Seem To Be Fan Favourites Which Feature. Fury Of The Dragon Is The Better Film Of The Two. FLIXSTER DOES'NT SEEM TO HAVE FURY OF THE DRAGON ON IT'S SYSTEM (AS OF 30/01/2011), THIS IS WHY BOTH ARE REVIEWED HERE THE GREEN HORNET: 2.5 STARS FURY OF THE DRAGON: 3 STARS OVERALL RATING: 3 STARS

    The television series is enjoyable and goofy, but this movie is merely a series of loosely connected television episodes, and thus, fails as a film. Go and watch the TV show instead and enjoy the 1960s campiness, and Bruce Lee.

    This "film" is just 3 episodes of "The Green Hornet" TV series that are strung together to a feature-length 83 minutes. No effort is made to link the stories at all; I'm amazed they bothered to cut out the commercial breaks.

    Bruce Lee in it. Saw this when I was very young, its like the original 1960 series of Batman but with a different twist.
