The Green Hornet Thoughts

After hours of studying I'm as happy to make this post as one would expect but I really want to talk today about this movie...
To take a break with from my studies I went to see the movie "The Green Hornet" with Lex and we had quite an experience. I don't know how many of you have seen the movie because I heard it was received poorly at the Box Office.



The movie was overall good, the comedic moments were truly genious, for me that really set it apart. The humor here is somewhat subtle and even though the characters are living in a serious world the never take themselves too seriously. The acting was good and the fighting scenes were..... delicious.

The plot is about this loser whose dad is a billionaire who owns a very powerful newspaper. When his father dies and he becomes the owner of the newspaper he uncovers all sorts of political blackmail and crime. He uses then his fathers wealth and the expertise on technology and martial arts of this chinese guy, whose only single reason why he knows how to syntethise a sleeping gas, create a car that has 2 miniguns, a rocket launcher, a heavy machine gun in the back, ejector seats etc is because he is chinese. That is the only reason. Yeah.

Don't want to say more except that Cameron Diaz was quite underused but that may be because they tried to stick to the comics. Also the main comedic idea is that the protagonist is this spoiled very rich loser, because of his fail however, a dude ACTUALLY DIES. Don't want to give spoilers though.

This movie is perfect if you want to pass some quality time, you won't remember it after one month but you will really laugh at some of the moments.

P.S. Christoph Waltz is here, playing one of the most goofiest yet bad-ass villans ever.

  29. I would really LOVE to watch this movie, but I HATE 3D movies. They give me an instant headache, so I avoid them with a passion. I can't wait till the 3D trend goes away. Making me miss some half decent movies.
