With the help of Kato, Britt starts a new career of fighting crime as the masked superhero "The Green Hornet".Written by

Jay Chou improvised the "I don't want to touch you" line seen in the trailer. See more »
At the reporters meeting, the assembled reporters reference the green hornet "shooting out a traffic camera" as one of the news stories. But it had not happened yet. See more »

Tell the Mayor, I'm insulted. I would never jeopardize the journalistic integrity of this newspaper for some rent-a-mayor's political agenda.
[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.
But I was trying to stop some bullies...

Change Seth Rogan and You have a much better Film(Miscast)!!! Not bad but not great!
Seth Rogan has a polarizing acting/comedic style... you either like it or you don't and in today's time there are many variations of his style of comedy done by other actors, The problem is How in the world do any of these traits or styles apply to the Green Hornet...(They Don't) To me its like mixing oil with water... a complete miscast... His redundant style just doesn't belong in this movie and its too over bearing and does nothing but conjure up images of everything else he's acted in. Unfortunately for him I'm pretty sure he will be pigeon holed as an actor but its by his own choice on what he brings into a film.
If your watching this movie because you like Seth Rogan and don't care about the Green Hornet... you'll be fine... but if your looking to take the Green Hornet as a serious hero movie without Seth's over bearing interference... well move on or at least wait for the rental...
Overall i think the casting director by choice or pushed was made to tie a recognizable name to this film for production but unfortunately it was the wrong call.
