Green Lantern (2011)
Critic Consensus: Noisy, overproduced, and thinly written, Green Lantern squanders an impressive budget and decades of comics mythology.

Critic Reviews for Green Lantern
Apart from having no particular reason to exist onscreen, especially at these prices, it's not half bad.
The result makes the movie seem assembled from bits and pieces of other superhero yarns rather than existing on a plane of its own.
The superhero genre is the home-court of the underdog, of skinny Peter Parkers and mutant outcasts, of heroes born from pain or ingenuity. In Green Lantern, the rich get richer.
Audience Reviews for Green Lantern
I'm surprised to see that so many people hated this movie, since it is not bad but rather an entertaining superhero movie (despite an irregular CGI) with good dialogue and decent acting, especially from Peter Sarsgaard, who seems to be having a lot of fun as the bad guy.
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.
Wow, I was WAY too nice to this when I first saw it.
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.|
