In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, where a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.



Green Lantern will be released on blu-ray and DVD on October 14, 2011.

Too bad. He could have been great in the role if it wasn't for that awful and lazy script. A mix between his usual performance and what he did in 'Buried' would be great for Hal's personality. Sadly, that didn't happen. Maybe next time if they make a sequel.

i liked GL although it could have been MUUUUUUUUUUCH better. talking about missed opportunities. let's hope for a better sequel if it happens...

Don't kid yourself, GL fans. The movie was a pile of garbage. Give yourselves a year and you'll come to realize it. It took me several to admit that Spider-Man 3 was the worst pile of shit I've ever seen.

The extended cut was sooo much better, anyone who thinks the film was garbage should look at the extended cut.

Only 5 more days to go!!!! Yaaaaay!!! :)

@Nephillim/WaylonJones Agreed with both of you, it should've been absolutely EPIC, but it wasn't. A scene or two were pretty epic IMO (namely the final battle with Parallax and the training on Oa), but wasn't enough to redeem the film's flaws.

I think what most people are disappointed with is that it was heavily hyped. To be called the new Star Wars set up an expectation that any movie would be hard to live up to. Was it great? Not by any means, but it was a not as good as a majority had expected based on the hype....especially with all the money and marketing thrown behind it.

I'l be buying it to add to my collection of CBM Blu Rays.

If you guys must get this... STAY AWAY from the 3D Blu-ray version, it's actually WORST than the 2D conversion.

Blu-ray.com Review

"Who would have thought that 'The Lion King' and 'Beauty & The Beast' offer infinitely more 3D punch and pizazz than Green Lantern 3D"

In darkest 3D day, in blackest 3D night, a few too many things shall escape my sight...

Video Quality = 2.5 / 5 [ D+ ]

Another day, another poorly implemented 3D conversion. When will studios realize that dark, dreary imagery doesn't translate to 3D very well? When will they start converting only those films that dramatically benefit from the process? Green Lantern 3D boasts the same highs and tumbles with the same lows as its 2D counterpart. But with the added veil of 3D glasses, a diminished degree of depth and dimensionality, and some of the flattest 3D imagery to hobble onto Blu-ray this year, it's much more uneven and, in my humble opinion, disappointing.

Surprisingly, sequences involving the most visual effects are the most two-dimensional, while the film's practical photography exhibits the most measurable pop. Very little ever jets off the screen, even when giant fists fly, vivid energy blasts erupt, planes hurtle toward the viewer, villains toss helpless heroes across city blocks, alien ships crash to Earth, or when Campbell's cameras explore Oa. No, the best 3D bits involve closeups of Sinestro, passing shots of Hal Jordan, the well-lit Abin Sur autopsy set and other "real" elements. Kilowog looms but doesn't tower, Tomar-Re stands out but doesn't leap off the screen, the Guardians scowl but retreat into the shadows, and Parallax fills the screen to such an extent that dimension is moot. (There are some nice shots toward the end of the film as Hal and Parallax battle it out near the sun, but the bulbous beastie doesn't leave much of an impression elsewhere.)

It doesn't help that the detail-stamping shadows, heavy contrast leveling and (inherent) DNR that plagued the 2D presentation are only exacerbated here. Pardon the potential overstatement, but a handful of shots in Green Lantern 3D are downright unwatchable.

Even when simpler 3D shots succeed, the resulting 3D effect doesn't stack up as well as it could. I constantly found myself wondering why Green Lantern was converted in the first place, much less released, as is, for 3D home viewing.

Surging green light should open up the image; instead, it flattens it more. Sprawling planets should stretch into the distance; instead, both Oa and Earth settle for far less. Hal Jordan should shoot out of the screen; instead, he shoots up, across, down, at an angle... everywhere but out. Even when he launches himself at the viewer, it rarely seems as if he's capable of breaking through the divide. Explosions should balloon and glowing creations of will should blossom; instead, they hang in mid-air without pushing forward all that much. Jordan's brief training and first major battle with Hector features some of the more convincing 3D found on the disc, but for all the brick-wall playfulness, swashbuckling fun and flame-thrower flash and sizzle, these scenes still don't hold a candle, 3D or otherwise, to the best 3D sequences I've had the pleasure of viewing. It's strange.

The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, two hand-drawn catalog films fresh from the Disney Vault, offer infinitely more 3D punch and pizazz than Green Lantern 3D. Who would have thought? And yet here we are. Is Green Lantern 3D a complete failure? Not quite. There's very little ghosting or crosstalk, no major artifacting or aliasing, and just enough decent-looking shots and scenes to render Warner's 3D transfer a so-so bonus feature; one worth the four-dollar difference in price. More often than not, though, the 3D presentation crashes and burns, particularly in comparison to other recent 3D releases. My advice? Save your hard-earned 3D dollars for more deserving 3D releases.

Omg yes we [frick]ing get it! you didn't like the movie, stop [frick]ing whining about all the [frick]ing time, it doesn't make the movie better. You didn't like it, who gives a shit about your opinions anyway !?

I love Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, but I found the movie a major disappointment. Whoever wrote GL just didn't have a handle on who Hal Jordan is. Reynolds would have been great in the role with great material. The scenes on OA had the right epic feel but the rest of the movie fell flat. Portraying Parallax as a giant dust cloud was ridiculous. They should have known from Galactus that wouldn't work. But even that was overshadowed by the horribly useless Hector Hammond.

Hopefully WB will do a sequel with Reynolds returning as Hal and a superior script. Green Lantern deserves another shot because it has so much potential.

This just in: Critics say all the whining, and bitching, and complaining about Green Lantern is just bad!!

Ryan Reynolds tries to hard to be funny.
pepe - 10/11/2011, 5:33 AM
Reynolds is a BAD actor... the negative bad...
Best part about this movie is the last seconds, the sinestro part.
cyclopstb - 10/11/2011, 8:43 PM
I hope they do a sequel,maybe have John Stewart and Kyle Gardener join the GL corp and have Sinestro wears the yellow energy and form the Sinestro Corp.
