As with the first serial, GREEN HORNET STRIKES AGAIN is filled with action and plenty of Tommy Gun gangster movie violence. In my opinion, Hull makes a slightly more convincing hero than his predecessor, and Keye Luke once again makes a formidable Kato.
As with the first set, VCI’s new 2-disc DVD presents the 15 chapter serial with a superior, full-frame 1.33:1, B&W transfer. The extra features again include exhaustive liner notes by author Martin Grams Jr., two additional classic radio episodes of the GREEN HORNET radio show, a photo gallery, and trailers for other VCI cliffhanger releases.
Both GREEN HORNET serial releases are recommended for fans of the character who may only know him from comic books or reruns of the 60s television show, and for cliffhanger buffs. They’re fun, fast-paced, and full of gangland chaos. The good old stuff.
