Green Hornet (2011)

At first when I heard of this movie, I thought it would be lame.  I had barely ever heard of this "super hero".

I watched the trailer and I thought the premise sounded like it had potential and it was a 2 hour movie for plenty of time to develop the characters.

After watching the movie, I rewatched the trailer.  What I noticed was that they cut the scenes for the trailer, pulling out all of the foul languages, which left the trailer great.  It would've left the movie great too had they left all of the profanity out.

I sat down to watch the movie with my kids since kids like heroes with great gadgets or powers.  I sat there giving it the benefit of the doubt that it was going to get cleaner once the bad son became a hero.  It did not.  It was peppered with profanity all through the movie.  Not only do I not like hearing that stuff, but it detracted from the movie, since they were words that were unnecessary.

The other major disappointment of this movie was that it had such potential to be an interesting story, but it dangled on the edge of it, but never really sealed the deal.  Just like with the profanity, I kept hanging there feeling like it was going to get better and it did not.
