The Green Lantern shines dimly.....By CheshireMatt (84 reviews) from Cheshire , 03 Dec 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]The Green Lantern tells the story of how Hal Gordon, unreliable test pilot, becomes the first human to be chosen as a Lantern - the universal corps trusted to guard the various galaxies. The story though is thinly written with limited information on the back story of how the Green Lantern's came to be and what threat awaits them. It all seemed a bit rushed and the story follows the usual pattern - ordinary guy gets chosen to be someone special, his father has died when he was young in tragic circumstances and so he has spent his life trying to live up to expectation. It follows the same path as many superhero films and suffers by comparison. The cast is a good one with support from Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong and Tim Robbins but they have all made much better films. Ryan Reynolds does a reasonable job as the ordinary joe thinking at first it was cool to be able to fly before too long I was wishing I could fly too.........away from the rest of the movie.

Average superhero filmBy LikesFrenchFilms (66 reviews) , 27 Jun 2013No real villains here because the epitome of evil is a gigantic cloud of fear. Acting is fine for the film. No real stretch for any of the cast who do a good workmanlike job. Plot is very comic book with minimal personas needed. Mildly entertaining.
Not greatBy a customer , 19 Jun 2013I was thinking this was going to be a really good movie But was very disappointed I love all the Spiderman and Batman movies And thought this would be something similar
green for go,go,goBy corkus (64 reviews) , 08 Jun 2013I was greatly surprised at how much i enjoyed this movie,not marvel but originally dc comics. nice to see good brit actors[mark strong]making a strong impact at last. the film is full of special effects,and an underlying story of good vs evil. Iliked it very much.
Disappointing, to say the least..By ABooker91 (2 reviews) , 18 Apr 2013I'm a fan of both Marvel and DC and comparing every single other Superhero film to date (including the awful Daredevil) this is the worst one. It feels awfully rushed and has had many corners cut. The acting could of been so much more, yet it fall short and the film as a whole follows a droll cliche driven atmosphere. I was expecting much more and i hope that when 'The Justice League' comes out there is a much needed remake.
