Gondry Goes Green (Hornet) 

New DVD release

Michel Gondry is no Michael Bay. Known for directing small, critically acclaimed films (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, Be Kind Rewind), Gondry turned heads with the announcement that he was tapped to direct superhero action film The Green Hornet. Movie lovers wondered how Gondry's visual style would pair with the story.

The Green Hornet is one of those films that was heavily anticipated prior to its January 2011 release date--now it's already on DVD. Critics argued that the Gondry/action-film pairing was a misfire, with one reviewer commenting: "It's hard to think of a more mystifying mismatch of filmmaker and material." Movie-goers appeared equally underwhelmed, despite a great leading cast--including Seth Rogen and Jay Chou--and beloved source material. Maybe it will be more whelming on disc.
