Director Michel Gondry delivers a watchable superhero satire in The Green Hornet which draws inspiration from a plethora of superhero films. This film is not good enough to spawn a franchise but is still decent enough if you go to theaters without any over-ambitious expectations.
Seth Rogen portrays the lead role of a media heir Britt Reid, who realises that his media empire is replete with criminal elements that need to be wiped out. Then he and his human weapon Kato embark on a quest to fight the nemesis. Green Hornet is slightly different from other superheroes in the sense that he puts on a veil of villainy in order to fight his adversaries.
The film has been on the receiving end of some negative publicity after its delayed release and hence it has nothing to lose but everything to gain. Gondry conjures up some seriously hilarious moments as he pokes fun at some conventional superheroes.
