Review of Green Lantern


Yesterday I caught Green Lantern at the theater and I liked it. Then again I’m biased as GL is one of my favorite superheroes.

I felt like this is the movie that Superman Returns should have been as in an epic battle with a powerful evil foe and not what was basically a chick flick.

I had no problem with Ryan Reynolds (no relation) as Hal Jordan except for when he was wearing the mask. He looked more like Ben Stiller when the mask was on.

Comic purists (i.e., Comic Book Guy) might have some issues with the film since they tweaked some of the characters’ origins.

The viewing I saw was in 3D and I really saw no reason for this. There was no ‘duck your head’ moment for me so I thought the 3D was unnecessary.

All in all, I liked it a lot. 4 power rings out of 5.
