Green lantern Review (spoiler free)

Green lantern Review (spoiler free)

Are the negative reviews right about Green lantern?
I was lucky enough to see it last night at a special WB screnning in Londons Leicester square.
here is my spoiler free review

Hi guys, this is my first article so excuse any faux pas i make.

A was lucky enough to attend the WB special screening on green lantern yesterday evening.

After absorbing all the negative press floating around on the sit yesterday i thought i would give my view.

This is a spoiler free review so no real plot line will be given.

Ryan Reynold as Hal jordon, well starts out asslightly annoyning man child but you do connect with him. i think it has more to do with Reynolds screen presence than the character itself. I enjoy the humor he brings to a movie. I know Hal is not a comedian in the comics but for a running time of 114 mins its welcomed.

Mark Strong in My Oppinion is Sinestro. brilliant casting but however a very under used character in the whole film.
Hetor Hamond (Sarsgaard) for me was the only real let down character wise in this movie. He simply was not needed. His exclusion would have made more screen time for the rest of the GL corps.
the voice casting for both Tomar-Re and Kilowog were spot on. michael Clark Duncans drill sargent hard ass voice was great, and well Geoffrey Rush as Tomar-re 9whom also kind of narates the intro was haw i would imagine him to talk.

The Special effects are dazzeling in place as they are bad in others(helicopter scene). I am not a fan of the energy Suits and it irritated me throughout the whole film.The 3D was ok, but just ok.i would like to watch it on Blu ray as it would look awsome.
Oa was simply spectacular. Amazing work on the planet and the Gardians look imortal and regal on the GL home world.

Although the movie did seem to rush through, and there are betterorigin stories i did relly enjoy it, and so did the audiance juging by there reaction though the movie

in conclusion it is no Dark knight, but hell i had a good time watching it

i'll give it a solid 3/5

also stay afterthe credits

With an all star cast which includes Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, Blake Lively as Carol Ferris and Mark Strong as Sinestro, director Martin Campbell's Green Lantern is set to be released in 3D this Friday

haven't seen the film yet,but i think this could be the most underrated film of the year with x-men first class being the most overrated.

I was there yesterday too and i thought it was a good movie. It's not as bad as some of the critics are saying it is but its also not the greatest CBM.

@Marvel72 Thank you I was about to finish tying my noose because i didnt think anyone else thought the same......

And hey Arkhamsbellboy do you think it is as good or better than Thor? If so my money well spent......

@ peteyparker

i just can't believe its as bad as some think.

alot of people gave x-men first class 5/5,i really can't see green lantern being a 2/5 movie maybe 3 but not any lower.

@marvel72 so far i've only read ONE review that didn't like the acting or so the rest just seems to bash the fact that it feels like watching a comic book......IDK still going tho :/.

I just think at this rate everyone is going to start just taking names and powers similar to the characters and just make movies (that have plot points that have NOTHING to do with the comic story). Like First Class was a good movie but had NO comic story ties. What about a Messiah Complex story? Age of Apocalypse? Second Coming? Deadly Genesis? Even a Sentinel based story? Its fine so we won't have comic book movies anymore.......We'll just have Superhero movies that have similar powers and names to Comic book characters. I would prefer if they just made superhero movies that didn't try to tug at my nostalgia of one of my favorite childhood heroes!

It doesnt bother me too much but you might want to change it to saying 114minutes (im assuming you meant that) b4 people start complaining (if they do). =]

@ theastonoshingcyclops

kiss my ass,i read the green lantern comic every month since rebirth so yes i'm a fan of the green lantern & i want the movie to be awesome,but since the first trailer i wasn't impressed but it has improved over the last couple of months.

i want dc to branch out with its characters,i want to see the flash,captain marvel & lobo get movie treatment.

but if this movie fails,what are they gonna do make more batman films thats great news (rolls eyes).

x-men first class is overrated its a 3 star movie at best so suck on that you prick.

I enjoyed the film. This is a nice way for WB to get their feet wet with a super hero movie. We can now only expect amazing work from this studio in the future when it comes to more super hero movies!
