The Green Hornet
Q: What’s the movie about?
A: A spoiled rich kid (Seth Rogen) who's mad at his dead dad (Tom Wilkinson) teams up with his dad's newly unemployed barrista/mechanic (Jay Chou) to fight crime in Los Angeles.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz, Tom Wilkinson, David Harbour, Edward James Olmos, Jamie Harris, Chad Coleman, Edward Furlong
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. There is something very exciting about this movie... But it might just be the car.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: The humor is very dark and a little weird. I liked it... But I might have just been excited about that car.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: Seth Rogen loses his mother, then his father... But I mostly felt bad about what happened to the car.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: Better Car than the Batmobile. Yeah, I said it, Batmaniacs, bring it on!
Q: How is the Acting?
A: Jay Chou is not John Cho with a Chinese accent. Although, he's equally as funny, in a much more Taiwanese way.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Michel Gondry plays down his abilities for the first time ever, simply telling the story without drawing excessive attention to his own superb directing skillz. He only showboats in two scenes. The first one is the opening party scene which feels forced and out of place next to the style of the rest of the film. The second showboating scene, though, where all of L.A.'s criminals spread the word about a million dollar bounty, leads your eye in so many interesting directions that you want to watch it more than once just to figure out how he did it.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: Seth Rogen co-wrote the script, so I'm surprised he didn't make his own character a little more likeable. It's probably the one thing that could've really taken this movie from slightly off-putting and vaguely disturbing to just plain great.
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
A: The Green Hornet Trailer
