The movie in question here is obvious (We all know you guys are here for pictures and you barely read these long posts...and you saw the image to the left and probably, by now, have put two and two together.) For my slower and potentially more mentally-challenged readers, I am of course talking about the 2010 Sony Pictures release of The Green Hornet. The movie has everything a guy could ask for: action, explosions, car-chases, gadgets, Cameron Diaz's left cheekbone! (Yes I distinguish... as a western society we naturally focus left to right... and let's face it, there's enough facial structure in half her face to last a thousand dreams!)
Amazing movie and safe for the whole family; Check it out!
I digress; The movie's plot actually met the hype that this film inspired over the last few weeks. Ever since the days of The Hulk and other poorly executed comic-book-turned-cinematic films, I have been leery of this genre. Without a doubt, this film has reclaimed honour for the style and has helped thousands relive childhood dreams of super heroes and villains.
The plot was surprisingly well structured and rounded. I should say, as with any action movie their were unbelievable and sometimes physically impossible moments, but that's to be expected. After-all, this is a super hero movie, not Blankitty Blank starring Hugh Grant... it's a comic book on film! The 3D effects were well oriented without the unbelievable headaches that accompanied the BETA technology a few short years ago. The cinematography kept the viewer in the action without too much confusion, even in the fast moving fight scenes... overall the direction and composition were terrific.
Overall my final verdict is that Sony has hit this one out of the park. It's a movie that every male from age six to 99 can enjoy, and it's even appealing to women. Their is no obvious controversy or offence to the typical agitated masses and instigate-able social circles (I'm looking at you Churches). Once again Seth Rogen gives a great performance and keeps all his comedy PG. This makes the movie something the whole family can enjoy, and without compromise.
Cheers to great movies, after a long dry spell they are finally picking up again.
