Green Lantern Movie Reviews
User reviews on Green Lantern
Don't think too hard and just enjoy the movie. It's a comic book character. I grew up reading them all and thought the movie was great! Great visuals and thought the story line of good vs. evil was good too. I'd watch it again.
Good action , but they ruined the movie by cussing God several times, I will not buy the dvd because of that
What can I say, I enjoy movies just like that and I do not care what critics say. I had fun watching this film and I think that Ryan Reynolds did a great job with his role. I wish I saw this film in 3D because it was amazing visually. I also liked Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond, I think he did an excellent job with it. I thought that Blake Lively is gorgeous as always, but i did not like her in this film. The special effects in the film were awesome and there was enough action to keep me interested throughout the whole film. Overall, if you are looking for a good time that does not involve thinking, you will like this film.
This is an action film based on a comic book and it stars Ryan Reynolds. I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. Actually as a comedy the film was not that bad, the problem is that it was not meant to be a comedy. I thought that the film is too chaotic and did not have a purpose or a main idea. I did not like any scenes between Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, they had no chemistry together at all. Another problem with this film is that it is not original at all and I feel like I have seen this kind of film million times before. In conclusion, I suggest to save your money for something better.
Too much, and yet somehow not enough. I wasn't looking for a doc**entary but there has to be some grain of reality to cling to for me to enjoy it.
ok. here's the thing with green lattern, you gotta go back to being a
kid and also take your critical mind and put it away! it's not there to
be judged, it's there to be enjoyed. isn't it nice to know that the character was powerful, that his mind could bring him victory in a good way- not
to create bombs to kill people with, but to create solutions to any
problem. this was a fun movie, full of action. the problem is that studios
keep trying to go higher and higher and we, the audience, just want to
see a story being told. it doesn't have to get bigger and bigger. just be
itself. reynolds was superb in the role he played it down and then he
showed courage,beauty and goodness. he also showed tenderness to
his love. the nice guy finished FIRST for a change. we just loved it. once again comparing movie to movie -how do you enjoy anything for its own uniqueness? and do not leave out sitting in an audience, eating fresh buttered popcorn, smelling the scent of fear, in the ambience that only a movie theatre can bring me not sitting at home.
i left feeling i could do anything! we could do anything! hmm.
The Green Lantern is visually amazing. The combination of 3-D, CGI, and acting makes the film worth watching. The film makers did a fantastic job developing a three dimensional, complex world that is visually stunning.
The story, on the other hand, is not worth watching. The characters are cliché, the story line is predictable, if not corny. I bet viewers would never guess that Ryan Reynolds character is a quick whited, c***y buffoon with a character flaw. (
I'm starting to wonder if any studio can make a good movie out of a DC Comics character that isn't named Batman or Superman. While rival Marvel continues its roll of great movies based on the likes of the X-Men, Thor and Iron Man, DC has bombs like Watchmen, Jonah Hex, and now, Green Lantern. Green Lantern follows in the tradition of those lame, overblown comic book movies that seem too comic booky for their own good.
Ryan Reynolds (completely miscast) plays Hal Jordan, a self-doubting test pilot. Reynolds has made a career of playing c***y, and he can't really get past that part of his persona here. When and alien crashes down to earth and gives Jordan a ring, Jordan suddenly finds himself a member of the Green Lantern Corps, a group of aliens around the universe protecting us from the Parallax. Of course, in these kind of films, you've got to start out with the myth so people know the backstory, and there's a lot of backstory here. Director Martin Campbell can't really do much with a lame script credited to four writers and no doubt worked on by many others whose names were mercifully left off of the finished film. Eventually, the story devolves into a lot of explosions and incoherent fighting.
While a lot of the problem with this movie has to do with the fact that it's a special effects mess with a weak script, I couldn't help but feel that Green Lantern is just a lame superhero. I know what Spider Man's powers are. Batman, Superman, Iron Man, etc. I know specifically what they can and can't do. Green Lantern, he can pretty much do everything. A ring that can do whatever the hero can imagine? If a character can do ANYTHING, there's no real drama. No drama...no movie.
