How many times have you been watching a movie where you see a guy cutting a hole in a 2″ steel plate with a little portable plasma cutter? Every time it happens I want to stand up and scream “ARE YOU KIDDING ME? A) That’s a tough job for a mounted big-ass cutter, and B) the duty cycle on a little 20A plasma cutter lasts about 20 seconds — not five minutes!” So we have to offer the producers of Green Hornet a big Toolmonger kudos for getting it right: Notice that the Hornet himself (Seth Rogen) in the screencap above is cutting the head off his father’s statue with a gas torch. Nice.
This is doubly-cool considering that so much of the movie is (hilariously) farcical. Love the car workshop, by the way. If I ever happen to end up that rich, you can bet I’ll have such a shop — though I’ll be the one working in it.
