The Green Hornet is a super hero movie, about a hero that is a newspaper publisher during the day and a masked hero during the night. His sidekick is called Kato and it's an expert in martial arts. The movie is a mix of comedy, crime and action genres, with a $90,000,000 budget.
The main actors from The Green Hornet are Seth Rogen as The Green Hornet, Jay Chou as Kato, Cameron Diaz as his secretary and Christopher Waltz as the underworld's villain. The name of the main character is actually Britt Reid, the heir of a media magnate that dies and leaves him the family fortune. The friendship between Britt and Kato develops and together they start fighting crime, as vigilantes. Using only technology and no real super powers, this duo starts fighting crime and they become known quickly as heroes.
The movie's director is Michel Gondry that has one Oscar under his belt so far and the writers are Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
While people might not expect as much from this movie as they would from other big names like Thor or The Dark Knight, the weird mix between Seth Rogen in the lead, eclectic director Michel Gondry and the foreign oscar winner Christopher Waltz as the villain should make for a nice combination and bring a few good laughs as well.
Chou makes a very nice role as the sidekick to Green Lantern and he is very funny, even though his English isn't perfect. It's a bit weird this movie, but you will have plenty of fun watching it, so it's definitely recommended.
