I kind of a expected another phoned in performance as a comic book hero by a comedian (not to say that Seth Rogen isn't a damn good comedian).  It was also a real surprise to see Jay Chou in this as well.  Hollywood usually goes for someone cliche' like Jackie Chan or Jet Li to play a role like Kato.  Overall I thought the film was worth sitting through and I personally got a few laughs out of it.  What did you guys think of it?

I myself just recently sat down and watched it with my Dad, and we liked it well enough.  He laughed a bit more then I did, but I still think it was kind of a bizarre casting choice to put Seth Rogen as Green Hornet.  I like him, but it just seemed odd.  It wasn't perfect, but it was still pretty enjoyable.  I loved Jay Chou as Kato though, he pulled it off perfectly.

I thought it was great. I'm glad it wasn't a full-blown comedy like a lot of people were thinking it was going to be. Seth may have been an odd choice, but in my opinion, he was a good choice.
