I can’t decide whether or not Seth Rogen was horribly miscast or if he saved the film. I think when he was cast he was at the heighth of his popularity --- riding off the coat tails of 40-Year-Old-Virgin and Superbad with a ton of other “meh-diocre” films like Pineapple Express and Zach & Miri Make A Porno.
Christoph Waltz felt restrained. I guess I just wanted him to reprise his role from Inglorious Basterds (maybe I would have been better off just watching that again). The biggest question in my mind is what the hell was Edward James Olmos doing in this film? By all rights this film was lucky to “get” him. I’m thinking that he was either a huge fan of The Green Hornet as a boy or he was just looking for a paycheck. Or maybe he just wanted to portray a successful Hispanic newspaper editor.
I enjoyed the film more than say Kick-Ass, and it succeeded in keeping me interested but that was mostly owed to the flashy car stuff and esplosions. If you like superhero genre (and lets face it, who here doesn’t?) then its worth a look. I borrowed this flick from the public library so I paid zero dollars for it and I certainly got my money’s worth.
