Two questions struck me when I first heard about The Green Hornet film adaptation. 1) What the hell is Michel Gondry doing with a movie like that? and 2) Why the fuck would they cast Seth Rogan in the lead? These were two factors I had trouble wrapping my mind around. So now I have just watched the movie and it is awesome! It all makes sense now... Gondry's flavour is stamped right across this thing in big bold letters and Seth Rogan (who also co-wrote it) is actually perfect in the role. I laughed myself stupid watching The Green Hornet and I reckon its done the tv series justice while delivering a refreshing perspective on what is becoming a tiresome formula. All of the gags hit their mark and it just works for some reason. My only criticism is that it runs too long by about 10 minutes or so. Very funny though!
