Why, why, why? Why did Michel Gondry make The Green Hornet (aside from the green answer)? Why wasn’t his comic book film quirkier? That’s what I would expect from the director of films like The Science of Sleep and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
But, no, there is no “more” here. Just another Seth Rogen show with juvenile humor plus a lot of cars crashing and rolling. Yawn. Don’t get me wrong, Rogen is likeable enough, but there’s nothing new here from him, from Gondry, from the genre.
I am also peeved that the film isn’t showing flat (anywhere that I noticed) in Greensboro. I really didn’t want to pay the extra fee for 3-D for this movie. My advice: skip it.
