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.

Not "Jonah Hex" bad...but almost.

"Green Lantern" does have a fair share of problems and yet is not quite as bad as some are making it out to be. It merely gets added to the long list of superhero films as one of the more forgettable ones

I would say that this film is 50/50 good and bad. The stuff that works really works, but the stuff that doesn't work doesn't really work.

There's a bit more character in the extended cut, but the film is still a mess of tones, driven by a Star Wars-like narrative but cut down by a sloppy Transformers feel.

Thinks it is more impressive than it actually is. Faced with over-blown effects, characters look flat and disappear into the background without a whimper, thanks to an insipid script and the film-makers' unwillingness to flesh out anyone but Hal Jordan.

While it doesn't reach the heady heights of Iron Man, it's a worthy addition to DC's movie universe.

In an attempt by the script to be both epic and snarky, director Martin Campbell and actor Ryan Reynolds did the best they could with what they were given to work with.

More science-fiction-y than most superhero films with some cool intergalactic visuals, the story can't quite make the most of Ryan Reynolds' charisma...

How many more of these superheroes can we take?

It drones on, needlessly complicating the story line with too many character relationships and too many dull stretches.

You'll need all the navigational help you can get, lantern or otherwise, to make it through this unfocused, CGI-driven mess of a movie.

whereas Marvel's summer movie Thor revelled in its outlandish setting, Green Lantern dithers between realism and all-out fantasy.

I've always considered DC's Green Lantern to be one step too far over the line into "come on, that's just silly" territory. (Fresh, but only just)

Before Hal Jordan's big-screen debut, I'd never heard of the guy. And now, having sat through the confused mess that is Green Lantern, I don't mind if I never hear of him again.

Green Lantern is all CGI sheen and no soul, taking the comic book movie one giant leap backwards in its inept attempt at creating a would be dazzling adventure.
