The vibe

French director Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind") says "Hornet" has the old-school peril and humor mix of "Beverly Hills Cop" but skeptics worry it may be "Inspector Gadget" with sex jokes. Director Martin Campbell hopes for rollicking adventure -- like his hit "The Legend of Zorro" -- and a sort of Jedi-knight version of "Top Gun," but fanboys worry he might deliver "The Mask" in space.
