The Green Hornet (2006)This short French indie film features the Green Hornet and Kato running around kicking people. The Hornet has been accused of robbing a museum so he sets out to find the real thief.
The duo walks around in dingy daylight and do what they do best. Crack the heads of a whole horde of toughs. Then they meet a head bad guy and the plot gets really interesting and then the film ends. Damn, this was okay.
“If it isn’t the famous Green Hornet and his equally famous acolyte Kato.”
Tomorrow, When The War Began (2010)In Australia, teenagers go on a camping trip. When they arrive home, they find a foreign army has invaded. They hide and fight back as best they can.
This is a good adventure adapted from the novel. The teenagers can be utterly thick at times but they are learning. The ending leaves it wide open for a sequel and I wouldn’t mind seeing Ellie, Corrie, Kevin, Fiona, Homer (Deniz Akdeniz), Robyn, Lee (Chris Pang) and Chris again.
Sure the heroic pose at the end is cheesy but its fun cheesy and I look forward to the sequels seeing as the books ran to 10 in all.
