The '60s TV classic gets an action-comedy update starring Seth Rogen (of all people!) as Britt Reid, the crusading newspaper honcho by day, crime fighter by night. This was a decent flick but it would've worked better if it had concentrated less on the "comedy," because the constant banter between Britt and Kato feels really forced after a while. The action scenes are well done, but I gotta say, Bruce Lee never needed fancy "Matrix" style slo-mo effects or CGI assistance when he kicked ass as Kato.
Sharp-eyed heavy metal geeks will want to watch for the blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo appearance by the members of Anvil, who are seen briefly during a nightclub scene.
I used a free rental I'd earned from RedBox to check this out, so for that price obviously I'm not gonna complain too much.
