This movie is an absolute disaster. The main character is completely unlikable to both the other characters and the audience, making it hard to relate to Lantern as he CGIs the living hell out of some really bizarre aliens. The action sequences have nearly no impact, and they exist merely to fill the time. I like shallow movies, I really do (just ask Predator), and to a degree this movie takes itself to seriously. But it's not a cool way to take itself too seriously like The Usual Suspects, it's a lame way of taking itself too seriously, as in being polluted with pseudo-philosophical mumbo jumbo about the power of will. It also boasts one of the dumbest villains in modern film history- no, not the ugly old psychic professor (he's only an accomplice), but the giant anti-will cloud of evil blackness. By the time Ryan Reynolds pushes said cloud right into the sun to resolve the crisis, dumbness had reached new levels never before seen in an action movie. Even the special effects, which many critics praised as the film's only redeeming factor, are awkward and just not worth it. They could have used special effects to make epic action and awesome scenes of destruction, but instead they chose to display big ugly black cloud and Ryan Reynolds in a very awkward green CGI suit. I think this is not only one of the worst movies of the year, but probably one of the most pointless action movies ever made.
