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.

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)

Acaba se revelando um passatempo relativamente divertido e agradável.

Things improve as the plot kicks in, thanks to enjoyable performances from Peter Sarsgaard, as the more-or-less human villain, and Blake Lively as the feisty heroine.

It's certainly not my cup of tea, but it does fulfil its promise to the core fans

Here's a comic book fantasy with a galaxy of special effects, a splendidly despicable villain in Peter Sarsgaard and heroics from the likeable Ryan Reynolds, who finds courage to overcome fear, win the girl and save the world.

There's a good movie in there somewhere and enough of it shines through that Green Lantern is not an out-and-out failure. But that realization also makes it a bit of a disappointment; it's easy to see the promise that hasn't been lived up to.

... the movie finds its bearings once Reynolds takes center screen; the franchise would do well to depend on him more than on sci-fi mumbo jumbo.

June 24, 2011 overlong and thoroughly uneven big-budget blockbuster that just barely earns a passing grade...

Green Lantern makes an effort to differentiate itself on an aesthetic level, but otherwise it's what you'd expect - a special-effects bonanza following formula.

The only reason you go to see a movie like this is the special effects and the fight scenes, right? It has both in spades and the 3D effects are good, too.

Green Lantern is reminiscent of 2008's The Incredible Hulk, another superhero flick that boasted a strong cast but went overboard on visual stimuli.

It basically suffers from many of the same flaws as Thor did, but seems far more tired because we've already seen this story two times already this summer.

Apart from having no particular reason to exist onscreen, especially at these prices, it's not half bad.

It has room to grow if Warner Brothers has the will power to deepen the characters and sharpen the writing in the inevitable sequel.

The cocky charm of Ryan Reynolds and worthwhile 3D give this movie just enough magic.

The ironic timing of opening nationwide on Father's Day weekend couldn't be more strategically perfect, because this entertaining movie provides dads, who grew up reading comic books, an opportunity to spend quality time with their young sons & daughters

... a shame this fantasy-adventure arrives in a summer swamped by superheroes. It's the best of the batch so far, but it's in danger of being snubbed by the seen-one-seen-'em-all contingent.
