"The Green Hornet" [C+]

The car was cool. It was nice to see that Seth Rogan had plenty of budget to get the props right on his vanity project. It's too bad he didn't use some of it to hire a good writer and a better actor to play Britt Reid/Green Hornet. I think my biggest problem is that Seth decided to write and play Britt as a grating dolt, rather than a sharp newspaperman creating an ineffective persona. This results in zero believability that Reid has any chance of confronting and bringing down any criminals whatsoever, except by accident or by the actions of his accidental almost ally, Kato. Disappointing.
