Variety
The film is a blast.
75
Miami Herald
A big, boisterous action-comedy - a funny, exciting and intentionally goofy summer movie that just happens to arrive in the middle of January.
70
Never achieves sufficient traction to go the blockbuster distance.
60
The Green Hornet, which strives to be a different take on the superhero genre, is an interesting film - until it devolves into abject stupidity.

Movieline
While this latest Rogen-penned iteration is a game try, it feels a bit like he's trying to make a volume out of a footnote.
42
In a last-minute tweak, the production has also been meaninglessly 3-D-ified - never mind that there's nothing whatsoever 3-D-ish going on. Maybe those clumsy 3-D glasses are meant to let moviegoers mimic the superhero mask-wearing experience?
40
Injecting a devil-may-care attitude into a franchise-focused blockbuster only gets you so far. When all is said and done, this wasp's got no sting.
40
Village Voice
The Green Hornet provides a half-hour's worth of mildly entertaining travesty before collapsing in a clamor of bombastic action sequences and lame wisecracks.
38
Orlando Sentinel
A violent, clumsy, jokey, badly-plotted and miscast mess.
25
Tampa Bay Times
Billed as an action comedy, The Green Hornet isn't funny, and the action is often too frenetic to make any impression.
