The Green Hornet Reviews
Posted 01.14.11 by reelz
In "development hell" for years, including George Clooney and Kevin Smith once attached as star and director, it looks like The Green Hornet maybe should've stayed there.
"...deliver(s) the goods for a punchy 3D breakout."
— Peter Debruge, Variety
"There's not much traditional in The Green Hornet, and nothing that is quite perfect, but in this hodge-podge of creativity, this kinky mess, there is unbridled zest and an almost innocent sense of joy. And that, in its way, is heroic."
— Jason McKiernan, filmcritic.com
"Despite the rumors and the graveyard January opening, The Green Hornet doesn't suck. But don't expect it to hang together either, what with the clashing tones and melting logic."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"...a superhero movie so in love with itself that it alienates the viewer from the first frame."
— Glenn Heath Jr., Slant Magazine
"...an almost unendurable demonstration of a movie with nothing to be about."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The Green Hornet provides a half-hour's worth of mildly entertaining travesty before collapsing in a clamor of bombastic action sequences and lame wisecracks."
— J. Hoberman, Village Voice
The Green Hornet opens nationwide this weekend
