I love comics. I grew up with superheros so I get a little geek’ed out when they make movies about my childhood heroes. I actually went and saw this in the theatre and rented it to watch it again.
Ryan Reynolds stars as a test pilot that loves to take risks but has a past that he fears. He is chosen by some pink skinned alien to join the Lantern Core, a galactic police force. Little does he know a big bad ass alien is making its way through the universal devouring worlds. Can he over come his fear in time and kick some ass?
I actually like this movie, I think they did a fair job of bringing it to the big screen. The only complaint I really had about the movie was the subplot of a scientists that gets infected by the aliens blood and turns into a big head villain. It was totally unneccessary to move the plot along and took away from the movie. They could have done more with the Green Lantern if they had.
The special effects were top-notch and it was a very entertaining movie. It’s also kid friendly (7 and up). If you like superheroes then this is a must see, if you don’t you will still like this movie,
I give this movie 4 Beers
