'Green Lantern' Review By MutantFairy
A fun super hero action movie.
Usually Green Lantern isn't thought of as cool but you can see how powerful lanterns can be when they are training & the Lanterns quickly create one thing after another with their rings during their fight. When I saw the poster I was afraid that it would be a terrible cgi film but I was very impressed with the effects. Sinestro, Abin Sur & all the other lanterns looked very realistic. The only problem with the movie was when green lantern first saved people, there should have been a lot more deaths & injuries in that scene. But I did like the way he rescued everyone with the construct he used. I would have preferred more constructs as he destroyed Parallax but I can understand that he is just starting out using the ring so he didn't really let his imagination run wild.
Ryan Reynolds was great; he was able to go from immature to serious with ease. His Hal Jordan reacted like I think most of us would "Hey this is so cool!" until we get to the planet & realize that being a Space Cop is serious business & not to be taken lightly. Blake Lively was awesome & so was Mark Strong as Sinestro. He really made Sinestro into a well-intentioned person & not a two-dimensional bad guy. I really hope they make sequels so we can see Green Lantern, Sinestro & Star Sapphire fighting each other with their rings.
