Superhero "bromance" is funny but overly childish.

A Failed and Miserable movie - do not waste your time

This movie was a HUGE disappointment. My wife and I had to fast forward a large portion of this movie and all in all wish we had not watched the movie at all. The language was terrible, the sexual overtones and harassment were evident and terrible. The story line left much to be desired and only part of the movie worth while was the last 2 minutes..... save your money and your mind- DO not watch!

perfect for teens

I love this movie!!!! I totally recommend it. It was fun, humorous,and thrilling. Although, I have some concerns of inappropriate activity there are multiple violent scenes such as intense car chases, partially brutal gun play, and multiple fist fights. There is some sexuality that includes a scene of implied sex, and a party scene showing women suggestively dancing while scantily clad. Lots of language including one f bomb, several uses of sh*t, a*s, b*tch,d*mn and h*ll. A few anatomical terms such as d**k,p***y and b*lls. Lots of alcohol use, a scene of cigar smoking, and references to drugs. Overall, really good movie.

Good, fun film with great chemistry from Seth Rogen and Jay Chou.

i personally thought The Green Hornet wasn't that all bad. Seth Rogen , Jay Chou and Christopher Waltz were fine. Cameron Diaz, however was wasted in this film. The action was cool. James Franco's cameo was funny.

Quite clumsy about the situation

Britt and Kato looks like 2 gangs that felt like they're always in trouble because they act like the hornet and there's a never ending on the search of them 2.One star was gone by the never ending on the polices search on the two characters.But they look crazy on most scenes and I mark it 4-stars.

At Least It's Hilarious!

This is NOT a great movie. at most it is just o.k, the story is stupid. but the thing is, it makes fun of itself, and it's greatest aspect is the comedy. some parts of this movie, i was literally laughing myself to tears! For the rating, the was a lot of swearing for a PG-13 movie, such as b--ch, sh-t, a-s, d-mn, h-ll, and one use of f-ck. sex is quite a bit, o actual sex seen on the screen, but at the beginning there is a party, a women is shown sleeping on a couch after the party, lots of flirting, and comments about women's sexual appeal. and some scenes with some women in a pool wearing bikinis, some drinking as well, including one scene at a bar, and some people get drunk at a party. violence isn't an issue, it is all cartoony stuff. nothing pre-teens can't handle. critically, the movie's one and only strength is the comedy, but the good thing is it doesn't try to be anything else, over all it gets a - (7.3/10.)

Comedic superhero flick, is overly childish but really funny.

This comedy is not flawless but really funny, CSM may say it's "overly childish," but that's why it's so funny. I love the chemistry between Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, although I favored Bruce Lee over him in the old television show. There is lots of profanity for a PG-13 flick, the strongest words include variations of s--t (horses--t, bulls--t) said nearly 40 times, plus "p---y," "d--k," and maybe an f-word mixed in there somewhere. "The Green Hornet" supports fornication (extramarital sex), which may concern parental viewers, who who wouldn't want their children exposed to this. Britt (The Green Hornet) and Kato are both obviously attracted to the female assistant (portrayed by the beautiful Cameron Diaz), and each go on dates with her (each unsuccessful). It is not until the end that they find that they are both dating the same woman. Britt asks her out to a Chinese restuarant where you eat in the dark, saying every bite is like "an orgasm in your mouth." Plus some woman are dressed provacativley at a party thrown by Britt, where he is shown slapping their butts and dancing with them. There are references to a a crystal meth and drug lab. Britt attempts to mix a drink of Vodka and Red Bull. The death of a supporting character is downplayed by comedic overtones, and, although the violence is bloodless, there is a high body count. The violence in "The Green Hornet" is a mix breed of comic book style violence mainly exhibited in superhero movies and mixed martial-arts action sequences, which include lots go large-scale destruction gunfire, car chases, chases on foot, explosions, hand-to-hand fighting including punching and kicking, intact their is an extended sequence where Britt (The Green Hornet) and Kato have a huge fight at Britt's house. Overall, "The Green Hornet" is insensitive to emotionally heavy topics including death and betrayal, laughing it off and moving on, it has lots of language, sexual content is only through references, nothing risqué is seen at all.

Horrible

Horrible movie, the humor is dry and stupid and not even funny, there's swearing like crazy in it. Seriously, every 2 seconds they say a** or s***. There's at least 30 bad words in it, no kidding. The action sequences are okay and actually quite entertaining, and the special effects are great, but sadly, great action scenes and great special effects aren't what make a movie good. The plot is bad, the character Britt is SO stupid. Kato is okay, and a fairly good character, but I hate the love triangle, Lenore / \ / \ Britt Kato It just makes the movie stupider and more worthless. Just to let you know unless all you like is great action scenes and worthless romance, don't even bother getting this movie. PERIOD.

Green Hornet Review

It was a good movie but the main character was a jerk until the very end. He didn't fully redeem himself but he got better.

The green hornet

I think the Commonsense review is about right for this movie re: language, sexual content etc. but parents should also be aware that there is quite a lot of killing in this movie. In one particular scene that is disturbing to viewers on the younger side, innocent people are killed simply for wearing green. The violence in the scene is more implied than graphic (although the silhouette of thugs beating someone to death is quite disturbing) and the dead bodies all lined up in a row is also quite confronting.

It was stupid.

I was very excited for this movie, but it was an utter disapointment. It's supposed to be a superhero movie, but really it's really just about two drunk guys who decide to become superheroes for fun (the main guy has no life, and is no role model at oall). There is much sexual talk and swearing (the worst of it being one use of the f-bomb). This movie is nothing like the old show with Bruce Lee. It's horrible. It wasn't even well-written, and it didn't even have an interesting storyline. Only watch this movie if you plan on wasting an hour of your life.

this move was......how do I describe it?.... ....

this movie was worse than I thought it was gonna be! It has a dull plot a not very well thought out story and is overall just dry and boring. There were about 3 good parts but the rest just wasn't worth the time. I also thought the violence was kinda high for a PG-13.

Entertaining buddy movie mixes comedy and action. Teens and up.

"The Green Hornet" is an action comedy/buddy movie starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz and Christoph Waltz. While the movie is not a serious superhero movie like "The Dark Knight", it is really entertaining. Going a think line between action and comedy, it is one of the fewer mainstream flicks that is really diverting, without trying to be something great. It is exactly what you can call original, but also it is not dumb or boring. I is perfect fpr just having fun when watching a movie. The movie has some action violence, mostly combat fights, chase scenes, etc. The most violent scene is when a man has his eyes impaled by wooden sticks (it is brief and action-ish, and not as strong as it sounds - the PG-13 is perfect). There are several crude jokes and huge amounts of PG-13 language. Suitable for teens and up.

The Green Hornet

This movie was very good. The movie however has some bad language. Also there is drinking and a few brand names such as red bull. Overall it is a good movie except for those minor details.
