Family Warning: contains a lot of unnecessary violence and bad language

"Green Hornet" is possibly one of the worst superhero movies ever. An expensive mess. Drivel that just goes on and on. A complete waste of a big budget. It is one of the most tedious films I have ever watched. I kept falling asleep during the movie, then waking back up and having to rewind it to the last part of the movie I remember seeing and no not because of my allergy medicine (I didn't take any that day) but because the film was boring and nonsensical. Yes, it was that weird. 

The movie is about a lazy young man, Britt Reid, who inherits his dad's fortune and decides to become a superhero. Hardly original. Seth Rogen was the weakest link in this film. What should have been a good action role, was turned into unfunny jokes, gross out moments and irritating ideas that did not pan out, pardon the pun. Rogen's character was irritating like the lead in Arthur, but less likable. 

Jay Chou was good as his sidekick and butler, Kato, adding some texture  to the film, with a sensible character, but it was not enough to make this movie work. This is how Hollywood sucks people in. You think "A superhero movie, oh cool!" then you watch it and it's like, "Oh no! I want the past two hours of my life back!"
