The Green Hornet 3D

The ingeniously creative French director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Science of Sleep, Be Kind Rewind) turns his hand to the superhero genre with this big screen adaptation of a 1930s radio serial.

Seth Rogen (who co-wrote the script with Evan Goldberg - Superbad, Pineapple Express) stars as debonair newspaper publisher Britt Reid, who fights crime at night as a masked superhero known as The Green Hornet. With his sidekick, Cato, and his souped-up vehicle, The Black Beauty, Reid faces nefarious villain Chudnofsky (Inglourious Basterd's Christoph Waltz). Cameron Diaz plays the female lead.

Though tonally uneven, Hornet nonetheless works as breezy, irreverent entertainment that makes a virtue of its unlikely elements. And there’s the added buzz of James Franco’s cameo.

Quite a bit less than the sum of its appealing parts.

There's an uneasy sense that Rogen, though aware of the perennial need to preserve and build his brand as a comedy star, would still like to be seen as a leading man of some quirky sort or other.

An almost unendurable demonstration of a movie with nothing to be about.

It comes as some disappointment – albeit no great surprise – to say that despite a few fanciful flourishes, Gondry has fought the Hollywood law, and the law has won.

Never achieves sufficient traction to go the blockbuster distance.

High hopes of magic from the Gondry-Rogen pairing are dashed. Some neat touches aside, this isn't so much eternal sunshine, more superbad.

To be honest, I would have to say no. I found the story line quite weak. The gadgets excited me every now and then, but I would say I only enjoyed the last 4th of it. I think seth could of done a little better.
