The Green Hornet

Continuity mistake: When Reid and Kato are fighting by the pool, the beach ball falls off the chair (beside the pool) when they land in the water, but is back up on the chair in a following shot.

Revealing mistake: When Kato is driving home after the argument with Britt about making coffee at the office, Kato is jerking the steering wheel randomly like a child pretending to drive despite it seeming they are just driving straight down the road. (00:56:30)

The Minister

Plot hole: In the first part of the movie, when the crime boss shakes down the club owner, he leaves a briefcase bomb inside the office. When he walks outside to explode it, the first thing that explodes are the club's billboard matinee lights, nowhere near the office, then the club explodes outward as it should from a bomb.

Trivia: Kato makes a comment of how time slows down when he fights. This is another reference to Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee punched and kicked so fast that it couldn't be seen on film and the film had to be slowed down just to see it. In addition, when filming, Lee still had to slow down his punches and kicks.

Trivia: When Britt Reid is flicking through Kato's sketch book you see a sketch of Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee played Kato in the original Green Hornet from 1966-1967.

Trivia: Another Bruce Lee reference: When Kato demonstrates that it's him, not the Green Hornet, that has the power, he uses (an exaggerated version of) Bruce Lee's One Inch Punch.

Kato: I was born in Shanghai. You know Shanghai?
Britt Reid: Yeah, I love Japan.

Jack Reid: So this is what you want out of your life? This gives you sense of fulfillment? I spend all night, writing about the corruption in this town, and you do nothing.

Britt Reid: Think about this, Kato. We've been completely wasting our potential. This city needs our help. We could be heroes! We will pose as villains to get close to the bad guys. That way, no one will suspect we're really the good guys. Will you come with me on this adventure?

Question: Nicolas Cage was originally cast in the role of the film's villain, Chudnofsky. But he left the film just days before shooting. I have searched around on the net trying to find why, but I keep finding unclear and conflicting reports. So why did Cage leave the film?

Chosen answer: There were creative differences between Cage and the film's director, Michael Goundry. For one, Cage, who wanted an unconventional character, suggested the villain have a Jamaican accent. The director rejected that idea and there were others conflicts between the two about how the character should be played. Cage decided to turn down the role.

Question: So, just to make this clear, neither Britt nor Kato win Lenore's heart by the end?

Chosen answer: Any romantic tangent between Lenore, Britt or Kato was derailed when she discovered their true identities. Lenore was furious with both of them. By the end of the film, we only get the impression that she is joining the Green Hornet team, presumably to return as a trio in any sequels. Which, due to low boxoffice and poor reviews, never happened.

Charles Austin Miller

Question: If his father was a monster, why didn't Britt make that clear to everyone at the funeral and let them know he didn't deserve that statue? Also, why couldn't Britt tell his co-workers that he cut the statue's head off?

Chosen answer: While Britt held a childhood grudge against his dad, his father wasn't so much a "monster" as he was a hard-nosed, dedicated publisher (who was, in fact, trying to expose organized crime). Britt has a change of heart when his father dies unexpectedly, and Britt makes the decision to take more responsibility in his life. Britt's old grudge only re-emerges when he and Kato get intoxicated and vandalize the statue, which Britt later regrets doing when he is sober.
