The Green Hornet
January 17, 2011
SyFy Channel justified its existence last week by running a day-long marathon of the original Green Hornet TV series. I caught a few episodes and was glad I did. It had the production values of the old Batman TV show, but with a mod/hip sensibility more akin to The Avengers or something along those lines. Now I finally understand the crush everyone has on Bruce Lee. And that punch-card speed dial phone! Awesome!
The movie was 30% good. The rest of the time I wanted to flay Seth Rogen alive in a vat of salt. 30% of the time, he was a perfectly good Green Hornet. The rest of the time, he was a moronic douchebag. I got the feeling somebody, somewhere thought this was entertaining. It is not.
Also, if it was me, I would have taken the flash drive to an internet cafe.
