"...funny,ultramodern take on the 1930s radio serial. Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The film is a blast. Peter Debruge, Variety
Editor's NoteThe hard-partying son of L.A.'s most powerful media magnate realizes his true calling as a crime-fighting vigilante after his father perishes under suspicious circumstances in this big-screen adaptation of the popular radio serial, comic book, film, and television series originated by LONE RANGER creators Fran Striker and George W. Trendle. James Reid (Tom Wilkinson) single-handedly built a media empire, but unfortunately his industrious genes weren't passed down to his son, Britt (Seth Rogen). Irresponsible, slovenly, and frequently inebriated, Britt is shaken out of his drunken stupor upon receiving word that his father has died. Shortly after Britt learns that he has inherited the family business, he forges an unlikely alliance with Kato (Jay Chou), one of his father's star employees, and together the pair hatch a plan to pose as villains in order to get close to the city's most high-powered criminals. Outfitting their indestructible custom-made car, The Black Beauty, with the absolute latest in technology and high-tech weaponry -- and arming themselves to the teeth with an array of gadgets that would make Batman blush -- the masked duo hit the streets as The Green Hornet and Kato. As the public's fascination with the mysterious crime fighters hits an all-time high, Britt's resourceful secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), helps them to gather intelligence on notorious underworld kingpin Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz), a criminal who holds the entire city in the palm of his hand, and represents everything that Britt's father fought against. Little do the Green Hornet and Kato realize that Chudnofsky is already on to them, and that he's not about to go down without a fight. Rogen and frequent writing partner Evan Goldberg provide the screenplay, with visionary Michel Gondry (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) handling directing duties.

Customer Reviews of Green Hornet (3D Blu-ray + 2D Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack)
Better than I thought3/29/2012
This is a funny yet action packed movie filled with fun toys. Also the depiction of kato was pretty good. Only the original didn't have to use cgi or camera angle to do the things he did. All in all this movie was entertaining. One of my favorite things in this move was the car. Love seeing James bond type cars do their thing on the big screens. In real life for that matter if it were real.
Good movie, great 3D3/23/2012
While this film doesn't live up to it's hype, it by far isn't a bad film. People fondly rememberinbg the 60s TV show need to go back and rewatch them. They weren't THAT good. The film is well written, and features nice effects and action. A bit unbelievable at times, BUT IT'S A MOVIE!!! The 3D is excellent!
