DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - This is a more comedic adaptation of the classic radio and television crime fighter series. Fans of the TV show may be thrown by this being more in line with star Seth Rogen's comedies than the old series. Cameron Diaz has a distinct supporting role. Language and violence are too strong for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The Green Hornet is mediocre, forgettable filmmaking that, regardless of how many dimensions it is seen in, is more likely to favor catatonia over concentration as the mindless repetition of action clichés exceeds the point of saturation.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor 'The Green Hornet' is an almost unendurable demonstration of a movie with nothing to be about.

USA Today Full Review
Average The Green Hornet is otherwise colorless, numbing and sluggishly paced.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 72 moviegoers:
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS from most of the males. A few did rate it as somewhat disappointing by giving it a review of "Good/Average." Almost all of the females absolutely loved "The Green Hornet."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:All but a few of the males loved "The Green Hornet." The few who didn't love it, enjoyed it very much. The one female loved it.
ADULTS:Mixed reviews from the males. Just over half enjoyed it very much with most loving it. Unfortunately, a third rated it below average to poor. The female reviews are decent, but not great. A few loved "The Green Hornet," but most rated it "Very Good," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much, but didn't love. Just like the male reviews, quite a few rated it low to very low.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is the son of LA's most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene – until his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father's more industrious and inventive employees, Kato (Jay Chou), they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. To get close to the criminals, they come up with the perfect cover: they'll pose as criminals themselves. Protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets.

Using all his ingenuity and skill, Kato builds the ultimate in advanced retro weaponry, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car equal parts firepower and horsepower. Rolling in a mobile fortress on wheels and striking the bad guys with Kato's clever gadgets, The Green Hornet and Kato quickly start making a name for themselves, and with the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they begin hunting down the man who controls LA's gritty underworld: Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). But Chudnofsky has plans of his own: to swat down The Green Hornet once and for all.
