Consensus: Noisy, overproduced, and thinly written, Green Lantern squanders an impressive budget and decades of comics mythology.

The result makes the movie seem assembled from bits and pieces of other superhero yarns rather than existing on a plane of its own.

The superhero genre is the home-court of the underdog, of skinny Peter Parkers and mutant outcasts, of heroes born from pain or ingenuity. In Green Lantern, the rich get richer.

So far from what I usually watch, but still enjoyable super hero flick, not on the level of Batman, but still enjoyable. 4 stars

This movie isn't bad; It's very pretty, but it's just dumb and never connects. I figured this movie's problem out about halfway through:… More
