Valentine's Day Special (Part IV) - Movie: The Green Hornet (2011)

The Green Hornet (2011) is an action-comedy movie based on the iconic radio serial, comic book, and television show of the same name in the 1930s.

Synopsis: Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) inherits the "The Daily Sentinel" in LA after the sudden death of his father, James Reid (Tom Wilkinson). Clueless and bored with his life, Britt assumes the personality of a crime-fighting masked hero at night known as "The Green Hornet" and teams up with his assistant/sidekick, Kato (Jay Chou).
With the help of his new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), Britt and Kato begin their crime-fighting "career" and get into real trouble when their existence begins to threaten Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz), LA's underground crime lord.

I don't like Seth Rogen and I find him childish, over-reacting, irritating, and annoying as "The Green Hornet". Perhaps that's his style but I don't buy it at all. Also, Jay Chou really needs to brush up his English or he should be given less lines to speak in the movie and stay mute as the super kick-ass sidekick. Another thing, I'm not sure what's the main contribution of Cameron Diaz's Lenore in the movie, perhaps just as a pretty tomboyish helper.

However, I think, one thing that saves this movie is the paranoid Chudnofsky. I love the way Christoph Waltz looks completely unassuming and benign and yet gives shivers down your spine when he starts to go crazy and kills people with his awesome double-barrel gun.

Not a very good movie but if you've read lots of good comments about it, just go ahead and watch.
