When is a super hero not a super hero? When he doesn’t have any special abilities and his sidekick does all of the dirty work. That’s the tale featured in the popular Green Hornet remake that has hit shelves in 3D Blu-ray. Fans of Seth Rogan will love this flick, but if you’ve found yourself a little Seth-ed out, then maybe you’ll want to take a pass on this one. Because he’s always over the top, you already know what you’re going to get…a lot of screaming and a lot of ridiculous situations.
If you don’t know the tale, Britt Reid is the wealth son of a media mogul. It’s the classic “no good rich kid does right” story, as he seems to rather want to spend time nursing hangovers (or creating them) than actually do anything worthwhile. He teams up with Kato, his loyal sidekick, and they do their part to take down the big-city crimelordChudnofsky.
Now, in regards to the movie….eh, I can take it or leave it, but honestly, I find Seth Rogan hilarious. Granted, I’d like to see him be someone besides Seth Rogan in a movie, but every decent comedian has to endure that. The movie’s plot is a little ridiculous, but again, if you like Seth, you’ll be able to stomach this one. If you’ve been finding him annoying lately, you may want to save yourself the trouble and just go ahead and punch yourself in the face now…not really, but maybe…
