The Green Hornet (Quick Review)

The Green Hornet Poster Rating: ★½☆☆☆

Seth Rogen plays an overly talkative, trash-talking man-child by day, and an overly talkative, trash-talking vigilante by night. The man will not shut up. “The Green Hornet” is less about the comic book character known as the The Green Hornet and more about Rogen’s pretentious and narcissistic love affair with himself. The supporting characters here only function as mere targets for Rogen’s self-glorifying cheap shots.

Think about the role he has prepared for the lovely Cameron Diaz. The woman has a certain charm that only a few actresses posses in Hollywood. Yet, she is only in this film so Rogen’s character can talk about how hot she is. I’m thinking that only someone like Megan Fox could actually feel pride in a pitiful role like this one.

Another person who shares the same misfortune as Ms. Diaz is the great Austrian-German actor, Christoph Waltz. His abilities here are so restricted that Rogen may have forgotten that Waltz has an Oscar. When we see Waltz appear on screen, we are only reminded of “Inglorious Basterds”, and we could just recall how brilliant that movie is while we wait for Seth Rogen to finish whatever the hell he’s trying to say.
