An almost painfully average superhero movie
6 August 2017
The Green Lantern movie has it's bad points and it's good points. Sadly the bad points are far too numerous and just make this an average movie.
-The casting is good
-The Acting is good
-The Script (Dialogue) is decent
- MOST of the special effects are adequate
- The action Scenes are OK
- The CGI "Creature Designs" are good, for the limited time you see them
- The Make-up effects are good
-The CGI costume is awful
- The choice of Bad Guys is disappointing, as there are by far way more interesting members of the Green Lantern "Rouges gallery" they could have used, The Manhunters for example (which they used in the bad adapted movie computer game)
- There is too much time on Hal Jordan's life on Earth and it makes the beginning of the movie drag a bit.
- There was an animated movie done around this time called Green Lantern: First Flight which was by far a better Green Lantern Movie.
If you are a fan of the source material or a fan of sci-fi you can check it out with out too much disappointment, but it is an almost painfully average film that is outclassed by an animated film that tells more of a compelling story in a far shorter running time and at a small fraction of the budget.
If you want a much better Green Lantern movie Check out "Green Lantern: First Flight" instead.
