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.

"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

It often feels like there are two separate stories featured in this comic book flick but neither of them is particularly interesting.

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.

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.

Gleefully pulpy dialogue that evaporates on the comics page -- lines like, "You can't give in to fear! I know what it's like to be afraid to be afraid!" -- land with a series of heavy wet thuds on the cement floor of the cineplex.

Turns out that the only power this movie had was to put me to sleep by the second act.

The film also needs a jump-start or a new Central Battery sometimes that Reynolds alone simply cannot provide.

Apparently Sarsgaard's [character] went to high school with the characters played by Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, which is perhaps the only joke in the movie to actually land.

One of the weakest comic book superhero adaptations we've had in awhile.

When Green Lantern does get its green groove on, its quite enjoyable... but the film is left sadly lacking due to the way it fumbles its set-up.

A screenplay that was conceived in what will undoubtedly be remembered by the four writers who contributed to it as the blackest night of their creative lives.

Green Lantern is ultimately let down not by the weight of its ambitions, but total lack of them.

Director Martin Campbell has somehow managed to make the origin story the least interesting part of the film. And when that comprises a big chunk of your movie, it results in a pretty joyless experience.

A whole lot of familiar superhero elements thrown together in a haphazard, uninspired way.

It is of my opinion that superhero movies are supposed to be super. Green Lantern is merely ordinary.
