Seth Rogen shoots a gun -- and fires off endless zingers -- in this action comedy. He plays an L.A. bachelor who, following his father's death, starts crime-fighting with his dad's mechanic, Kato (Jay Chou). The interplay between the Green Hornet and straight man Kato delights, overshadowing Cameron Diaz as a mutual love interest. At least their rivalry inspires the flick's best scene: a knockdown fight that ends in a pool. It's even more effective in 3-D!
