What went wrong? - It was supposed to be a fun movie - a juvenile one if you prefer the term. Instead of that they wanted to make a dark-gritty noir like film. - Too cheesy. What was right? -The Visual effect

After all the completly bad reviews i had seen on this flick i was almost hesitating going to see it. Good thing i like to trust my own taste in films as i actually liked it. I also have no problem whatsoever saying i even enjoyed it more then Captain America!! Great storyline, CGI etc. this film in my own opinion had it all with a great cast to boot! Kudos to Peter Sarsgaard who was outstanding as the evil Dr. Hector Hammond. Do not listen to the reviewers on this movie and trust me when i say go see it for yourself before you pass judgment!

Based on what I read and heard from others, I was expecting this film to be unwatchable, but I was pleasantly surprised. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't great. But for a superhero movie I didn't think it was any worse than Thor or Captain America, both of which I enjoyed. Origin stories are hard to tell in a short time span, and I thought this film did a good job of that. When I first saw the previews, I thought the CG suit was a bit much, but it makes sense after seeing the film. I wish we could have seen more of the other Lanterns, but I'm sure we will if they make another one. Also, Ryan Reynolds wasn't as annoying as he was in the trailers. He actually made the movie fun. If you like superhero movies, you could do worst.

"The Green Lantern" by Yojimbo

A dying member of an intergalactic peace keeping force crash lands on Earth and bestows his power upon an irresponsible fighter jock. The Green Lantern is a long running DC comics character whom I have always considered (even since childhood) to be rather lame. He's basically like a cross between Superman and The Mask in that he has a magic ring that can conjure up anything he can imagine using the green power of will. Like I said, lame. This ludicrously clumsy metaphor is continued by the villain who controls "the yellow light of fear" and looks like a foggy version of an alien in Mars Attacks! Add the fact that the intergalactic force are just a bunch of CGI cartoon characters and the whole thing looks very childish and silly. The day-glo visuals certainly don't help on this score eithe...

Great visuals!

In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, Beware my power… Green Lantern's light!

The effects are pretty good and our main guy is likable and looks awesome in green skin tight suit. Hal Jordan is a fearless pilot working for Ferris Industries, whose antics during a simulation costs him his job and puts a strain on his relationship with Carol Ferris. (Blake Lively) He is chosen as the new Green Lantern when the dying Abin Sur sends out the ring to find a successor. Whilst Hal is struggling to identify what it means to be a part of the green lantern corps which is basically some sort of cops who guard the universe, and what it is to be without fear, Hector Hammond (Peter Saarsgaard) is called in to examine the Dead Alien from ...

Green Lantern review

I have been a Batman fan as long as I can remember. This prompted me to be a DC fan. I discovered Green Lantern last year by purchasing the graphic novels. Hal Jordan is a cocky, confident, fearless character who is in love with a girl, tries to save an alien and was chosen by the ring to defend sector 2814 (Earth). The art was amazing, the story was compelling, the creatures/aliens were fascinating and the power of the ring/lantern was engaging. After seeing the movie I quite can easily comprehend the story. For those new to the DC hero, it’s confusing and rushed at times. The cast was average, the story and script could have been improved. Before the film was released, there were several negative feedbacks already, which baffled me. Why rate a film when it’s not even released? ...
