Could Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet action sequences be met with the same level of imitation/parody as The Matrix? The whimsical director spoke with MTV about what he plans for the film's fight scenes, and it sounds nuts:
Gondry explains: “I change the speed of the camera at different spots in the image at different times. So, it seems like they’re in the same world but at different times, and then they’re back together.”
