The Green Hornet movie review


Directed by: Michel Gondry
Screenplay by: Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg
Produced by: Neal H. MoritzExecutive Producers: Michael Grillo ,Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Ori Marmur, George W. Trendle, Jr.
Cast: Seth Rogen, Jay Chou and Cameron Diaz

The Green Hornet centers on a Britt Reid (Rogen), a party boy and heir to a publishing empire. After the sudden death of his father, he along with his new companion Kato bond over a desire to rebel and end up becoming vigilante heroes. With the help of the newspaper and Reid’s secretary Lenore (Diaz) they work their way up the crime ladder until they reach the top dog, Chudnofsky (Waltz).

Personal Comments (may contains spoiler, read at your own risk)
The Green Hornet is an action comedy film.
Personally for me, comedy is well matched with the action elements in this movie, since most of the scenes are about Britt Reid by Seth Rogen) and Kato by Jay Chou.

I am pretty sure that it takes quite some time for Britt Reid (Rogen) and Kato (Jay Chou) to really have the chemistry bonding with each other, it's good to  see that the interactions work in this movie, and as I said that's where the majority of the film spent.
Expected Up's and down's of the movie, whereby two of them quarrel when they are facing some problems.


This action part is where another success of this film.
Kato acted by Bruce Lee in the TV show is superb especially when he is an expert in the martial arts, so Jay Chou is still passable in most of the scenes.
Some of the stunning action scenes would be car chases and fist fight.

[Something interesting is that, they are driving the front part of the Black Beauty towards the end of movie.]

Sometimes I just feel unnecessary comedy's dialogue appears in between the interesting action part, guess that's where the part we just focus on the action part.
But yeah! Most of the dialogues between Britt Reid (Rogen) and Kato (Jay Chou) is really useful to show the comedy part. 

Some of the interesting dialogues would be:
 [Thinking of a title suitable for the headline of newspaper]
Rogen: Let's name it the GREEN BEE
All the staffs in meeting room: *keeps quiet, giving him a (=.='') face*
Kato: the Green Hornet
Rogen: the Green Hornet?
Staffs: yeah, that would be much better

(The Green Bee? sounds not hero at all)

I came across my friends blog, Carmen and I found this dialogues too.

Reid : What time is it?
Jay : 2
Reid : That's not so bad
Jay : Its Thursday
Jay : Check out the Black Beauties.
Reid : Beauties?
Jay : Its for back up..
Jay : 11 days

[Eventually he blanked out on monday. And he woke up on Thursday. But it was actually already the following week, I were like wtf.]

For me, it doesn't really show any bonds between Lenore Case( Cameron Diaz) with Britt and Kato. It's merely a love interest between 3 of them.
She is the only part to drive the complication between Britt Reid (Rogen) and Kato (Jay Chou) .

Further more, Christoph Waltz role can be improve, he should be a stone cold killer instead of soft spoken evil guy.

so OVERALL, it's still a visual interesting movie, and 2 hours didn't seems to be real draggy and boring. It's also an entertaining movie, I am pretty sure you will enjoy it, and guess what, Jay Chou performance really improved.

Personal Rating:
Plot: (Can't determine as it is based on TV series)
Effects: 7/10
Comedy: 7.5/10
Action: 7/10
Overall: 7.5/10

Thanks to NuffnangMY for the movie screening!

She is the one who brought up the concept of Wazzup and it is because of her son who inspires her.

One Step Closer to the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race

What's Om Nom Nom? It's simple means FOOD

Maxis is organizing a Food Race
which is the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race

but it looks more like an "amazing race" challenge for me.
Why? *just continue read my post*

We are required to drive around and look for 5 different locations by using the clues and instructions on how to find the next location.
For each location, we will be served with the venue's best dishes.

Imagine I am part of this Maxis Om Nom Nom Race...
I get enjoy all the best dishes in 5 different locations! 
and of course this would be my FIRST race in my life ! 
I can't wait to drive around with my gang and compete with the other 14 teams
to win the 1st prize ( a trip to Hong Kong 3D2N with 5 star accomodation)

I love trying out new things, and experience different things.
Maxis Om Nom Nom race will be perfect!

We are required to drive around right? Now that is what I call an exciting race!
Maxis will be providing us an 
iPhone 4 (with Finder301 apps and GPS applications installed), a laptop 
and Maxis wireless broadband modem to assist with our tasks.
Imagine I am part of this Maxis Om Nom Nom Race...
Wow! Using the latest gadget for the race? That would be a new experience for me.

*Downloading the Finder301 apps* 
LINK: to view the Finder301 apps from Maxis at iTunes
 I downloaded the Finder301 apps!
I will need to train myself to use this apps before everyone else. *Kiasu*
It's not Kiasu, I am just getting myself ready for the race.

For example here, If I am looking for Snow Flakes at ss15
I will type at the SEARCH

By clicking the Direction sign next to the 42m
this message will appear
and you will just need to follow the Google Map directions.

We will be using the Maxis Wireless Broadband Modem to connect to the internet,
as we are required to blog about the food after enjoying the dishes.
For more info about the Maxis Broadband. Click Here

 Imagine I am part of this Maxis Om Nom Nom Race...
I will be able to share to my blog readers about the best dishes I had at the race.

After reading the post about the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race,
I quickly gather 3 more members, who is also interested in joining the race.

If I Were the Green Hornet

since when Kato from the Green Hornet

is so talented in music industry?
He plays various music instruments.
He is also well known for composing his own songs.

I would like to introduce you Kato
acted by Jay Chou in The Green Hornet (2011)

so back to title IF I WERE the Green Hornet,

It will NOT be that simple to just kill all the criminal by using the
Black Beauty
(don't think about shooting)
I believe in solving problem in the positive way.
I will definitely COMPOSE a SONG 
to educate the public
*Inspired by Jay Chou* 
Sounds more educated isn't it?

Here's part of the lyrics
Don't you ever steal
Don't you ever kill
Don't you ever rob
Don't you ever kidnap

Because you will be in jail in the end.

I Will only sing to you guys when I win the mp3 k?

Now It's better than torturing
or even killing them.

Wouldn't you want a peaceful life?
We have to educate the people since small and create a good mind set
to prevent all the criminal cases from happening!
I admit I am Jay Chou top fans! 
*I have all his music album*
How could I miss his action in this movie?
