How many more of these superheroes can we take?

The green aesthetic misfires: the whole film looks as if it's been inspired by a particular shade of washing-up liquid, or the glowing screens of ancient computers.

A certain tone is needed to carry off the script's manifold absurdities. It has to be tongue-in-cheek rather than foot-in-mouth and Reynolds' success rate is intermittent at best.

He's an ambiguously...heroic hero.

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.

Green Lantern's light faded for me, and was out completely by the time the final credits rolled.

Green Lantern is as cheesy and has more plot holes and dangling story strings than a piece of 70's macrame.

The film never rises above a screenplay that seems to be pulling in several directions, leaving the material battling with tone and consistency. The result is a lifeless attempt at a blockbuster that never quite gets out of the block.

All the prancing about on a galaxy far far away where Hal [Ryan Reynolds] meets the other Green Lanterns, and the wise ancients, and a gigantic gruff sergeant-type who learns him his ropes is all a bit of a bore.

There are some fun moments in Green Lantern, and Reynolds and Sarsgaard...are truly worth watching. The movie, however, flickers between being fun and a mess.

While he's not a compelling enough character or superhero to care about, as Green Lantern, [Ryan Reynolds is] believable in his solemnity, yet his comedic charm helps when dealing with the absurdity that comes with the premise.

With a cast like that, this superhero flick, like Hal Jordan himself, had real potential to rise above its provenance. But the dialogue is simply beyond cheesy.

In brightest day, in blackest night...No cliche will escape my sight...I guess its really not that bad...But it certainly is loud and bright.
November 2, 2018
This isn't quite the stake through the heart of the superhero movie that some of its most vociferous critics are making it out to be, but it sure isn't the genre's brightest day, either.

If you haven't seen it, DON'T BOTHER.

This is pure popcorn entertainment, a one-dimensional outing that is more in the ballpark of Thor and Fantastic Four than anything else.
September 8, 2017
Green Lantern is not a perfect movie, but it's fun to watch.
August 25, 2017
Please please please do not make a sequel.

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