The Green Hornet
Green Hornet started out as a radio drama and then, in the depression, it became a popular comic series. It stood out because it’s different than other comic stories. Okay so the main characters a rich guy, like Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne, but he has a sidekick that actually kicks more ass than he does, plus this sidekick isn’t even American yet he fights to protect the American people from criminals.
On the 14th of January, aka this Friday, Seth Rogan’s film adaptation of the Green Hornet comes to cinemas. Rogan, along with Evan Goldberg, wrote the movie and also stars in it. Cameron Diaz plays a key role in the film, her character is the brains of the whole operation, but she doesn’t know it. Jay Chou plays the ass kicking sidekick, Kato.
For most of Chou’s career he’s been told that he can’t act, he doesn’t have the presence, he doesn’t have an expressive face, etc. From what I’ve seen so far, I’d have to agree with the many critics that have slated his previous performances. I just hope his lack of emotion doesn’t take too much away from the actual film.
To promote the movie, Seth Rogan guest starred in an episode of MythBusters. The episode tested two of the stunts preformed in the movie. Adam and Jamie tested what would happen if you were buried in your car. Tory, Carrie and Grant looked into the car getting cut in half scene, which looks great. Keep an eye out for that episode because it sounds really good, like most episodes of MythBusters.
Green Hornet is the first superhero movie to come out in 2011 so for that reason alone you really should see it, but, despite some subpar acting, it looks fun and exciting. Don’t take my word for it watch the trailer below and let me know what you think by commenting and voting below.
