Kazed reviews: Green Hornet (2011)

Synopsis: Following the death of his father, Britt Reid, heir to his father's large company, teams up with his late dad's assistant Kato to become a masked crime fighting team

I like Seth Rogen. I do. I enjoy his exploits on the big screen. This wasn't an exception, but wasn't up to par with what I consider to be some of his best(Knocked Up, Superbad, Funny People).

There were funny moments which occasionally made me chuckle, but these occasions were rare. I laughed about 4 times in during the film, but that's not to say I didn't enjoy the film. It just wasn't much of a "comedy". Rogen's performance was good as expected,  but ultimately it was the dialogue that failed him on this occasion.

Although the actions scenes were quite well done, they weren't that impressive. It was all just too...flashy.

The film itself was okay, but then, I wasn't expecting much. It had it's funny moments, had decent some decent action, but lacked in decent performances. Rogen delivered, Cameron Diaz was practically nonexistent to me in the film, her performance was forgettable, but Christoph Waltz overshadowed all in his portrayal of a crazy evil person guy. He can really sell the sinister thing, the way he can deliver his lines is really quite creepy. Great choice for a bad man though.
