News & Interviews for Green Lantern
Critic Reviews for Green Lantern
It often feels like there are two separate stories featured in this comic book flick but neither of them is particularly interesting.
This is a blue-light special version of a superhero movie. This is what happens when they go wrong. This is what happens when they don't care.
Across the board Green Lantern is an average experience. There is zero character development, an overly confusing plot and way too much dodgy CGI assaulting the screen.
Audience Reviews for Green Lantern
After reading a handful of bad reviews i went into this expecting a giant pile of turd. Now granted I don't dislike many movies. Everything has its good qualities. And I have enjoyed several recent movies that others have disliked. That said my expectations had been seriously lowered going in and well, it wasnt as bad as I expected.
The movie had somewhat decent acting across the board. Nothing great, just good enough for what the actors were given with.
The movie relied heavily on CGI for its otherworldly Corp Members and settings. These were not bad just a huge chunk of the movie.
Up against both Thor and X-Men First Class the movie had little to no deeper story. Both of those two movies this summer had a bit more going for them story wise.. There seemed to be some parts that did feel a bit rushed.
overall though I enjoyed the movie.
Not just fear ... but fear from space, space fear, yellow-colored space fear threatens home sweet home ... what's a world to do? Luckily, our hero enters: the jock next door, more irreverent than Mad magazine, able to leap over discarded girlfriends with a single bound, and that's only his entrance. There's fun to be had as this superhero dreams his power up on the spot, if only the work had been better thunk out. Its a summertime movie, so whatever.
I'm surprised to see that so many people hated this film. It is certainly not bad but an entertaining superhero movie (despite an irregular CGI) with good dialogue and decent acting, especially Peter Sarsgaard, who seems to be having a lot of fun as the villain.
Green Lantern Quotes
|Dr. Hector Hammond:||Well, I used to fight my fears. But now that I've tasted its true power, I'll never go back!|
|Parallax:||You are afraid. Good.|
|Hal Jordan/Green Lantern:||Hey, Carol. Was gonna do a little flying today. What do you think?|
|Carol Ferris:||I think you're late.|
|Hal Jordan/Green Lantern:||Yes, that's only because I slept in.|
|Carol Ferris:||I used to sleep in. Then I turned 11. Let me give you a little heads-up. I've gone up against these Sabres all week and they have smoked me every time. There isn't anything that you can do that they can't do better, faster and without disappointing women everywhere.|
|Hal Jordan/Green Lantern:||I, uh, think we both know that's not true.|
|Carol Ferris:||This is exactly why I didn't want you for this. My father did. I would've gone with Jensen.|
|Hal Jordan/Green Lantern:||I'd have gone for Jensen too. But unfortunately, he's busy not being good enough.|
|Carol Ferris:||At least he shows up. Hal, this test today, it's important.|
|Hal Jordan/Green Lantern:||I got it. I'm gonna make you look good up there. Don't worry, okay? Now let's get these pants off and fly some planes.|
|Tom Kalmaku:||That's the best you could come up with for your first big appearance? Racetrack.|
|Hal Jordan/Green Lantern:||Oh, I'm sorry. Did I disappoint you?|
