You saw the trailer. The first thought that probably came to your mind was,”What the heck is this?”

The Green Hornet, which is now in theaters, is the story of newspaper publisher Britt Reid who, after his father’s death, becomes a masked vigilante known as the Green Hornet. With the help of his driver and partner Kato, Reid poses as a villain in order to get closer to the city’s criminals.

The movie starts out strong with a comedic yet suspenseful scene between two gang leaders arguing over territory. Following this Seth Rogen, playing the part of Reid, comes into the film and proves that he was the man to play the part of a party maniac. While continuing to be funny and keep your attention, there are many parts during the film that seem underdone and rushed. For example, although Seth Rogen plays his part great, his character in the movie remains unfinished and never quite perfected. There is also the problem that the movie seems to be rushing through the main plot to get to the climax as quickly as possible without fully completing movie.

My review has to be a C+. Although interesting enough to keep you in the movie, it just doesn’t have what it takes to be above average. It is a great movie to go see with some friends when you have nothing to do at night, but don’t expect it be amazed.
