Product Description

Superhero action film based on the DC comic strip. The Green Lantern Corps is an intergalactic brotherhood of warriors with otherworldly powers whose job it is to uphold peace and justice throughout the universe. With the advent of a deadly and powerful new enemy called Parallax, it is up to Green Lantern's newest recruit Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds), an army pilot and the Corps's first ever human recruit, to restore peace and save the universe. Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard co-star.

Synopsis

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, an elite force of protectors for peace and justice has existed for centuries. They are the Green Lantern Corps. When a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of the Corps' newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds). Bringing the popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, Green Lantern also stars Blake Lively (Gossip Girl), Peter Sarsgaard (Orphan), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes), Academy Award® nominee Angela Bassett* and Academy Award® winner Tim Robbins**.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as critics have you Believe 31 July 2011
Format:Blu-ray
This really is not a bad film. After the amount of bashing this film got by the critics in the days before the film release i went in with very low expectations expecting one of the worst comic book film adaptions ever. To tell you this was an amazing film would be a lie but ryan reynolds is likable as Hal Jordon, and some of the sepcial effects are awesome. Some great action set pieces and decent humour. What more can you ask for from a super hero movie. This is no Iron Man but its decent for what it is. Do not let critics form your opinion of this film. The fact that transformers 3 made more money than this is a travesty. This is not the worst film of the summer and deserves more credit than it got.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great comic book movie 3 Aug 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Don't believe the anti-hype: it's the domino effect of criticism, one reviewer follows another until nobody feels free to have an original opinion about a movie. Green Lantern is a thoroughly enjoyable summer blockbuster; it has its flaws, but nobody should be going in expecting a tight Shakespearean plot with tragic irony and profound soliloquies. The script is more than serviceable, the acting far better than the likes of Transformers or Thor, and the plight of the central character one that we can all relate to. Give this movie a chance. It will surprise you.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Another month, another comic book superhero adaptation makes it to the big screen. This film gives us DC comic's Green Lantern. The Green Lanterns are a sort of universe wide police force, protecting people and bringing peace to the universe. Hal Jordan, the first human to be picked to join the corps, is an irresponsible human who has to grow up fast to meet his new responsibilities.

It's an average film. Way better than the Spiderman films (the lead actor is far more likeable and charismatic) but not as good as, say, Thor. On a par with Captain America. The bad points first - far too much time is spent in the creation and back story. It really bogs the film down. And while some things are gone into ad nauseam, others are glossed over far too quickly, and people (like me) who have never read the comics may well miss out on certain points. I know I did. And once the film does get going and Hal has a foe to fight it's all over rather too quickly, and you start to wonder why Parallax was an enemy feared by the entire universe when he seemed to be rather easily destroyed and more than a bit thick. Compare this to Thor, where the back story was kept to a bare minimum, and the enemy was much more menacing. I have to admit I found all the plot holes a little tedious after a while as well.

Good points - the action, when it comes, is well staged and can be quite a thrill ride. The special effects are nicely done, and the film looks good. Ryan Reynolds is actually very very good as the superhero, with a lot of charm, humour, and an underlying dignity (and it's hard to do dignity when dressed in a silly superhero costume!)

The extended version available here adds in a mere 5 minutes extra runtime, and doesn't really add anything to original film that makes me change my mind.

So, a film with good and bad points. A solid three stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stuck On Amber 9 Oct 2013
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Green Lantern.
Region 2 dvd.
Ratio 16.9/2.40:1.
Running time 110 minutes approx.

Positives
Well at leasts this comic book movie attempts to try something new.
Mark Strong is on good form playng Sinestro.
Ryan Reynolds plays Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan but is actually ok in this movie.

Negative.
Martin Campbell is usually a superb director of action & storytelling but is a little out of his depth here in this comic book movie realm.
Some of the CGI is appalling in places especially the main villian Parallax.

Review.
Oh dear you wait for DC to release a comic book movie with exeption to Batman, Dark Knight & this is what we finally get a jumbled poor CGI mess.

Green Lantern is less known in the UK but with a director attached of Martin Campbell calibre i expected a lot more than the end result.

Ryan Reynolds plays Ryan Reynolds playing Hal Jordon a test pilot whom still suffers flashbacks seeing his father's death in a jet crash.

Hal is a cocky pilot but has low self esteem issues & seems afraid of comitting to his on/off Girlfriend Carol Ferris(Blake Lively) or just about anything in his life.

In the universe a creature of great power known as Parallax escapes from his exile & attacks his former capturer Abin Sur who many years ago abandoned him on the lost sector planet Ryut.

Parallax attack against Abin Sur mortally wounds him & he crashes to earth & by fate is found by Hal who passes on his Green Power Ring & Lantern tells him to recite the oath & then dies.

Hal eventually recites the oath thinking it a joke but becomes possessed by the rings power.

5.0 out of 5 stars A first-rate second-rate film 23 Oct 2011
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I read Green Lantern back in the 1960s, and on and off since – especially since libraries started carrying ‘graphic novels’. As far as I am concerned, the film is an acceptable adaptation of the comic – especially considering the changes to continuity that DC has imposed over the decades. The basic origin was a faithful copy, and the fact that ‘without fear’ has been upgraded to ’able to face his fears and overcome them’ is merely upgrading what was a simple children’s story to a more acceptable adolescent level, and gave us a meaningful plot. The alien characters and planets looked alien thanks to the motion capture and CGI; the story held together reasonably well; this is a Hollywood film, after all. What more could you expect? It may not be dark Knight or Iron Man, but it is a first rate second rate film, and streets ahead of the Fantastic Four or the first Hulk film, at least to me.

The extended edition – as far as I could tell, this is basically some extra scenes of the childhood interaction of Hal, Carol and Hector, to give some backstory to their adult relationships. It feels as if they slow the pace of the film down, so don’t go spending money to upgrade.

The 3D Blu-Ray edition – I didn’t find the 3D effects added anything to my enjoyment of the film.

(Query - did they buy-in the Galactus effects from the Fantastic Four to reuse for Paralax?)
