The Green Hornet: Aftermath

Rocketing out of the events of the monster hit movie, follow the continuing adventures of Green Hornet and Kato as a power struggle for control over drug trafficking in Los Angeles turns violent. Green Hornet and Kato are just starting out, but they’ve attracted attention from the cops, the drug pushers, and even Homeland Security! Britt and Kato keep their alter egos hidden, but a new set of masked men on the scene complicates matters.

I’m not a huge fan of movie/comic crossovers. I prefer them to stay within their own that’s why I didn’t think much of The Green Hornet: Aftermath when I picked it up. It looked like a piece of promotional material for the movie that came out a few months back and I don’t need to be sold on a movie that I was never really interested in seeing in the first place but I read it anyway and suprise of all suprises, it’s actually not a bad comic.

The book picks up where the movie left off, which is a bit of a mystery to me since i didn’t see the movie but that didn’t really hurt too much. It starts with the typical scenario of Kato doing all the heavy lifting and The Green Hornet showing up at the last moment to take all the credit only this time the credit is being given to someone else by a pair on nosy Home Land Security officers. They think TGH is one of Reid’s reporters, Cullen Hurtt and this doesn’t sit well with either of the guys. Kato and TGH want a bit of the credit they feel they should be getting but don’t want to out themselves to accept it.

I like the book, the character chemistry is interesting, the art is classic comic inspired and the cover is dynamic, straight off a movie poster. If you enjoyed The Green Hornet than this is certainly worth picking up and if you haven’t seen the movie but would like an introduction to the character this is definitely a good point to jump on and check it out.

Early Word On Green Hornet Is Very Positive

Posted on 14 December 2010 by Christian

Those that have seen the previews can’t actually review the movie yet, but word has slipped out that Michel Gondry’s Green Hornet has defied expectations and managed to be..pretty damn good!…

Early screening of Green Hornet have been happening at various venues in various countries since last week. Those that attended are not permitted to review the film yet, but that hasn’t stopped em from revealing whether they enjoyed it or not!

When it was announced that Seth Rogen would be playing Britt Reid(The Green Hornet) many people already wrote it off, assuming that Director Michel Gondry must be spoofing it up. Then some pretty cool shots revealed a slimmed down, quite serious looking Rogen. That was followed by some very good trailers that suggested a slightly comedic approach, but no more so than many action orientated films doing the round these days. Still some felt that the movie would miss the mark. Well, I haven’t seen it so I can’t confirm or deny that, but some net folks have revealed to me that they have never been more pleasantly surprised by a movie. Here is just one glowing..ummm, “endorsement” of The Green Hornet..

Now, I can’t review GREEN HORNET in any real detail. I’d like to. In fact, if I were to write it up with any real specificity this would be the longest of these reviews. But I feel i must say this. Although this is being released in January, traditionally a dump-month for the studios, I must insist that this isn’t a dump kind of film. I have no idea what kind of box office this will make. But this was for me the most pleasant surprise of all the premieres at BNAT. I really, really loved THE GREEN HORNET, and all I can say to you is that I urge you to see it with an open mind and and prepare to have a metric [frick]-ton of fun with it. I’m not bullshitting saying this, not trying to get into anyone’s good graces. An honest assessment of THE GREEN HORNET – it’s really [frick]ing good.

This comes courtesy of Nordling over at AICN, who watched the movie as part of their annual BNAT(Butt-Numb-A-Thon). I realize this is just one guys opinion, but I have heard from some fairly like minded people from other sites that its every bit as good as this dude above reckons.

Green Hornet stars Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz, Edward James Olmos, David Harbour, Tom Wilkinson, and directed by Michel Gondry and hits theaters January 14, 2011.
