Plot: A cocky test pilot, Hal Jordan ('Ryan Reynolds' ), acquires superhuman powers when he is chosen by "the Ring", the willpower-fed source of power, of the Green Lantern Intergalactic Corps. He, reluctantly at first, takes on the challenges these superheroes face. Putting his self-doubts aside, and spurred on by his sense of duty and love for his beautiful, intellectually equal, colleague, Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), he is soon called to defend mankind from Parallax, a super-powerful being who feeds on fear. He is the universe's last chance, as many Lanterns have been killed and the Corps is weakened. And he might just be the right Lantern for the job of keeping the world safe from harm. Based on the characters of DC Comics series "Green Lantern". Runtime: 114 mins Release Date: 16 Jun 2011
I have the Green Lantern Comics Numbers 49-51 circa 1993 where Hal Jordan goes crazy and smashes the main power battery on OA, and gives up his GL status to a new Green Lantern. But Hal Jordan has always been Green Lantern to me, even with other people putting the ring on over the years.This film accounts the story of how Hal Jordan was chosen by the ring, as the dying Abin Sur sends out the ring to find a successor. Not to get into too much of a spoiler here, so I won't say how that happens in the film, which is slightly different than the original "Origin or Green Lantern" <more>
stories I have read when I was a kid, suffice it to say, the people who made this film had 5 decades of Green Lantern stories to get into a 2 hour film. And they did it good.I saw this in 3D and it was adequate 3D, the look of Green Lantern was sort of a blend of all the different changes in costume he had over the years. Ryan Reynolds was a very good Hal Jordan, and Blake Lively a very very good Carol Ferris. A lot of the characters from the comics are in this, there is a "Pieface" but he is not Asian, there is an appearance by Sinestro who in this film is the head of the Green Lantern Corps, which includes veteran Green Lantern Tomar-Re voiced by Geoffery Rush, and Micheal Clark Duncan voicing Kilowog, all much loved GL characters, and the appearance of the Green Lantern Corps was a very good idea.The Guardians of OA looked much like they looked in the comics, they named none of the Guardian Actors save Warren Burton and Salome Jens who was the main Shape-Shifter in Star Trek: Deep Space 9 , the rest of them are, well they are just Guardians. the evil entity Parallax was voiced by one of my favourite actors, Clancy Brown.As far as Production, some great names popped out during the credits: James Newton Howard did a very good score, on par with his King Kong score, and the whole production was designed by another who worked on King Kong: Oscar winner Grant Major who had that same job in Lord of the Rings trilogy - And the costumes were done by another Lord of the Rings veteran, Ngila Dickson, another Oscar winner.As far as the director, I had never heard of Martin Campbell except for Casino Royale and Vertical Limit, but one name did pop out: Stuart Baird, a veteran Editor, who has edited some great films all the way back to the Donner version of Superman II, Gorillas in the Mist, and of course he directed Star Trek: Nemesis which I rather liked.Green Lantern being one of my favourite comic books when I was a kid, I was very gratified to see this film- They really did not take very many liberties with the stories which they cultivated to make this film, so I give it a 10 - Mostly because I can care less what anyone's lame gripes about this film are, I thoroughly enjoyed it, it was done very well.
Everything one hopes from a Summer blockbuster. (by peter_strn)
Well,I was one of those lucky enough to be in the advanced screening for this movie.Being a GL fan & the bashing it was subjected to whether it was criticism for the tone among numerous others,I had my reservations.But being a fan of Geoff John's work & the genius that's Martin Campbell,I decided to give it a chance.This is perhaps the best superhero movie since Superman 1978 .Yes,I know there's Spiderman,The Dark Knight and many others but GL is the proper summer superhero spectacle.The doubtful superhero who lives up to become the legend he's destined to be,the ideal <more>
lady-love and the textbook super-villain,Green Lantern reminded me of how my Dad narrated me about viewing Superman on the big-screen.Ryan Reynolds is the ideal superhero,which is refreshing to see,after so many self-doubting self-loathing superheroes the rival studios have put on the big screen.Peter Sarsgaard's performance is nothing short of spectacular,which is amazing.What was most surprising is how good Blake Lively's Carol Ferris is,giving an emotional subtext to a 2D character is tough,but Lively does it with ease.Fans won't be disappointed.When Warner's declared they needed a franchisee to replace Harry Potter & GL is a viable one,I was skeptical.Now,not so much.9/10
This movie is what I've been waiting for my entire comic life! (by dtwmiller-83-692337)
I have been reading the comic for over 40 years and I was blown away by this. I understand that they can't make the movie exactly like the comic and I am fine with that. I want to say that the entire cast was superb, except for the part of Hector Hammond the growing forehead was just a bit too nasty for me . Mark Strong as Sinestro was a perfect choice! Ryan Reynolds was also superbly cast. I think that the special effects for the movie were done very well and I applaud the movie makers for making the aliens seem very lifelike. Too many times they seem to get lazy with this or give the <more>
aliens very poor makeup. Do not go in with a closed mind on this. Give it a chance and I believe you will be well rewarded. I like the concept for this movie and thoroughly applaud the effort.
Don't listen to the negative remarks. This is a great movie. I've been a long time Green Lantern fan and the story line is a great adaptation from the comics. Yeah there are little things about the acting and writing, but they are overshadowed by the excellent story. This movie is well worth your time and money. The origins and background are spot on. I was glad the movie was built around the Green Lantern Corp. It is important to know that there is more than one Green Lantern. They did a really good job of showing Hal's personality. My wife even liked this movie. There is not <more>
dull moment. The momentum of the story keeps you from being bored.
Green Lantern Excellent - the NY Times critic is wrong! *SPOILERS* (by warrenf_peace)
What is up with professional movie critics like the dick at the Times who said Green Lantern was bad? It's not bad- on the contrary, it's really, really good - especially for such a cosmic concept. Sure, there were some script issues, but mostly trivial unless your expectation is in the way , but these in no way impeded my enjoyment of this film adaption of my favorite comic book superhero series from my childhood. The Times tool also said something cynical, like ".. Are superheroes relevant in today's world.." or some such tripe, and the fact that he makes such an <more>
insipid comment demands the answer 'YES', because in our cynical world, kids need positive role models as do their parents , and Ryan Reynolds does a great job delivering one for us. Especially the idea about the most powerful force being will - if only we'd embrace that - the missing component in today's effed up world is in such idealism offered in this entertaining, visually stunning, cosmic and cosmically beautiful , scientifically accurate, and exciting film. I am certainly looking forward to a sequel, which is implied, so make it so!Without giving much away, I can say that the film moved a little too quickly for me, perhaps because some of the visuals were so compelling that I wanted the camera to linger there instead, it occasionally lingered in the wrong spots a few times, for example, in some scenes that were tangent to the main story , but again, the errors were forgivable when the end result was so enjoyable. The Green Lantern can manifest anything he can imagine, and my main criticism would be the writers didn't go far enough exploring this - when one has an infinite blank slate in which to create, it can be a challenge to find new ideas that folks can relate to - I get that - but the writers could have, should have spent a bit more time on the aspect of training ones mind to the discipline of harnessing thoughts. I can imagine yoga-like mental exercises and let the fun begin! But these can be explored in a sequel. I hope the box office grows fat enough to convince the idiots in Hollywood to continue this franchise. I want the idealism and the valiant heroism of the Green Lanterns to inspire my son more than the hedonistic Tony Stark although he can too, a little! . So check it out - I saw the 3D version, but it should be good in 2D, too. See if you can imagine a universe that looks out for the 'rest of us', where the good guys win, and superheroes exist. That's a place where I want to live!
A very well done Green Lantern movie, even if it's not a classic. (by jasonmberk)
This movie was very enjoyable. It provided a faithful adaptation of the Hal Jordan Green Lantern comic book character and other characters from the comics. The plot was appropriate for a Green Lantern story. The visuals were stunning and there were plenty of scenes with little or no effects or CGI. I particularly liked how Hal Jordan's character was portrayed and developed, as I felt it was unique for a superhero character. Here we have a guy who is NOT Superman, i.e. gifted with an enormous array of superpowers, nor do we have Batman, who is a trained professional. In this film, we have <more>
a superhero who's greatest strength by far is himself, especially his will. That is what drives the character through challenges and to victory by the end of the film, not superpowers alone, not fancy gadgets, not elaborate fighting skills, just who he is and believing in himself and in winning. I like it! Not an original concept perhaps, but as far as mythology goes, this movie tells a great tale and gives us another great hero's journey, one that occurs as changes from within, not just changes physically. Go see this film if you like superheros or if you want to be inspired to have courage and believe in yourself a little more. Don't listen to the critics. This is not a one star movie. It does not suck. As I said, it is not a classic film, but it is very good and worth seeing. My only real issue is that the dramatic elements were a bit too long, although a condensed version of the drama would still be entirely necessary. Also, a superhero who's greatest power is believing in himself and in success takes some getting used to compared to a dude who just has amazing powers or fights like Batman. Anyways, enjoy!
A True Green Lantern Fan with More Than a High School Education! (by revanformvii)
I just have to do it, I just have to correct all the haters out there...No summary, no spoilers, just points on what makes a movie.Storyline: 8/10 Was it award winning? No, but what super hero movie is? The becoming a Green Lantern of Hal Jordan follows the original comics perfectly. If you know the comics, you know the beginning. If you never read them, then you learn a lot real fast. The story introduces only characters necessary to the plot and nothing more. Hal, Carol, Senestro, Parallax, the Guardians, Abin Sur, Tomar-Re, and Kilowog. They easily could have introduced way too many <more>
guardians, way too fast, but they didn't. Parallax's origins are changed a little but it works out for the better, remember not everything that works in a book works on screen. All in all, storyline was good, it kept a good pace. Always remember it is an origins story so the 2 hours isn't completely filled with action but neither Casee nor I got bored.Acting: 8/10 No Ryan R. did not screw up Hal Jordan. Alright, I'll admit Hal may not be as witty as Ryan played him but Hal was sure as hell a smart ace in the comics. I thought it fit. I went in thinking, "This is going to be great, or really going to suck." Luckily, casting was very well done. Carol: Blake did a fine job. I do agree with another review that said they wished someone a little more intellectual/mature would play Carol, but in the long scheme of things, Blake didn't get a terrible amount of screen time to prove herself. Maybe as Star Sapphire she may pull out. Lantern Corp: Sinestro 10/10 Tomar-Re: 10/10 Kilowog: 10/10 Abin Sur: 10/10 I can't say much else besides that these characters lived up to the comics perfectly. I loved them all.Graphics/CGI: 8/10 Why 8? Eh, there were a few, just a few I tell you, parts where the graphics pulled the cartoon look of Spiderman 3. PLEASE! don't be afraid by this, all in all the graphics were awesome. Oa was beautiful, just a couple notches below Asgard in Thor. Green Lantern Ring effects were great, all around solid.Costumes/sets: 9/10 First, short and sweet. Live action sets: average. Skylines just like any other city, Ferris Airforce Base: good enough. Nothing spectacular but it wasn't the center of the movie. Costumes: STOP HATING ON THE CGI COSTUMES!!!!!!! Even the the comics the suits were made from energy and that is what the movie did. A powerful ring of willpower isn't going to POOF put anyone in spandex or rubber armor. The mask appears when the identity of a Lantern needs to be protected and eye color changes as well. PERFECT to me.Length: 7/10 Although, as I said before there were a few slow parts, I would have liked to see the movie for a few minutes longer. Towards the end, yes, a little rushed but it didn't ruin the whole movie. 10-15 minutes longer to put it just at the 2 hour mark would have been perfect for an origins story to me. Took off a couple points here.Overall: 8/10 By all means it is not as bad as Catwoman or Daredevil as some are writing. Those who make that comment are probably the ones who think Transformers is somehow an epic movie. Anyways, it is a good solid super hero movie. Maybe, not one of the greats like Batman Begins, Dark Knight, and Thor, but still a great movie that wouldn't be bad to take the mature enough younger kids. Parallax is a little scary and there are a few curse words, but by all means, this is not a racy film.Remember: Stay after the credits...
Decent flick. Not half as bad as some of the critics have been making it out. (by karl-oneill)
A decent comic book adaptation of the DC comic book character Green Lantern. It's certainly not as bad as some critics have made it out to be. It's fun, the action sequences are flashy and exciting. The acting is all top notch and the humor is done really well. Green Lantern is unpretentious, probably even one of the most unpretentious superhero movies ever made. It embraces its inherent goofiness and excludes much of the angst and over-seriousness that we seen in other comic book movies like Batman and Spiderman. The after-credits scene is awesome. A real fan pleaser and hopefully <more>
Please, please, please get a decent writing team for the next Green Lantern movie. If only the studio pinheads would take the obvious step of hiring the team of great writers Bruce Timm put together for Justice League/Justice League Unlimited. Those guys could come up with a better script in a week just spit balling ideas together than this movie.You've got 50 years of story material to work with. This is what you picked to make into a movie? Please, just pay Alan Moore a couple of million and shoot his script as written and you'll make the money back hundreds of times over. And it <more>
will be a movie that holds up! Everything looks great. But this is total crap. A complete waste of a solid character. This is a big step backward for superhero movies. I was embarrassed that our culture has regressed to this level of banality.
