The Green Hornet (2011) - Flickchart

The Green Hornet (2011) - Flickchart

Yes, it falls somewhere between lowbrow and nobrow but I have to admit I liked this more than, well, I should probably admit. Its biggest flaw was (going to sound like an old man here, I know) the gruesome deaths of the villains. This was a light-hearted comic book romp that didn't need a shot of [spoiler alert ...]  the big bad impaled through both eyes -- it's not that I disapprove of extreme violence, in certain contexts (Dead Alive, for instance) it is the freaking bomb, but here it was just jarring. Seth Rogen and Jay Chou worked well together, the stoopid plot wasn't the worst thing ever, and it came together just enough for me to give it a thumbs up. But, let's face it, I'm an idiot. You probably won't like it.
