Quotes

[first lines]
Jack Reid: [on the phone] Tell the Mayor, I'm insulted. I would never jeopardize the journalistic integrity of this newspaper for some rent-a-mayor's political agenda.
Jack Reid: [to his son] So Britt, here we are again. Sent home after another schoolyard fight. I know you miss your mother. So do I. But I have to take care of 750 employees, and you have to take care of yourself. Still that seems to be asking too much.
Young Britt: But I was trying to stop some bullies...

The Green Express
19 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh! I Just saw The Green Hornet in 3D......Damn did I felt silly sitting in the theater watching what I vote as the worst movie of the year! The Green Hornet starts off promising in a scene with James Franco and the great Christoph Waltz from Inglorious Basterds 2009 (the last film he was in, And boy what a bad choice!) But The Green Hornet goes downhill real fast after that. Seth Rogan who I like and is a crack up in most movies he is in, single handed kills this movie! I like Superheros to be a bit humorous, but not incredibly annoying! It seems the director of this turkey had no control over Rogan (Playing Britt Reid alias The Green Hornet) goes crazy yelling in scene after scene, obviously improvising most of his lines. This might have worked for Pineapple Express but totally ruins this movie. I was rooting for Kato to kick the Rogan characters ass at any moment or hoping one of the bad guys would shoot him. I think Seth Rogan would have been a better choice as the villain in this movie and Waltz as The Green Hornet or a George Clooney, friggin Brad Pitt or someone like that. The rest of the cast sucks too, An aging Cameron Diaz has nothing to do in this flick, Edward James Olmos looked like he was about to climb out of the screen and hitch a ride home, the Chinese guy who plays Kato mumbles his lines throughout the movie. Shame on these Hollywood bozos! The Writers, Director, and Seth Rogan for destroying a cool comic book and the original sixties TV series that starred Van Williams and the great Bruce Lee. And if Bruce Lee were alive today I think he would have gave Seth Rogan and his Follywood buddies a good ol' Karate kick to the balls! P.S. the 3D sucked too
