Green Lantern Reviews
w hy it got such a low rating
For starters, Ryan Reynolds is an awful Hal Jordan, and instead just plays his usual cocky smart-mouth character. The supporting cast is very mediocre too, which is unfortunate because 90% of this film is a drama focusing on them.
The 10% of the film that was on Oa was the only entertaining part. Seeing the training sessions of the green lanterns and the mythology behind the superheros was good, but there should have been way more of it.
Green Lantern manages to succeed in the visual aspect only. The story is weak and the epic tone that should be found here is missing throughout the entire film. A very disappointing and unfaithful effort to bring to life one of comics' greatest characters.
