DVD: The Green Hornet, For retail & rental (Sony)

Anyone salivating at the thought of the wildly inventive Michel Gondry taking on the genesis story of a superhero: save your drool.

Apart from a couple of moments, you'd barely know it's Gondry, as writing duties were shared by Seth Rogen and Evan "Superbad" Goldberg. Hence, we got shlubby loser Rogen as the eponymous dull hero, a few sub-Scott Pilgrim scenes and a story told so soporifically that it's a real buzz-kill.
