The Green Hornet (2011) - Discount Review

Not Recommended For: Moms who remember the Green Hornet from his TV series and / or crossover on the Adam West Batman Series way back in '66 (my mom hated this movie).

Heroes: The Green Hornet and sidekick Kato

Villains: Benjamin Chudnofsky AKA Bloodnofsky

Diabolical Scheme: Chudnofsky just wanted to maintain the status quo, complete control of the LA crime scene. The Green Hornet's showboating threatened his power.

Coolest Moment(s): Kato vision was great. The prolonged car chase / conclusion was pretty intense.  

Worst Moment: Was the Green Hornet always such a jerk? I really didn't like the way he treated Kato, or Lenore, or Adama, or anyone really.

Review in 50 Words or Less:  This movie can pretty much be summed up with the phrase, "Not your mother's Green Hornet." There was some good action and decent humor with some "sick" moments for the teens, but after having just seen it, I can't really remember very much. Catch it on Spike TV.
