“Green Lantern” is Neither Brightest Day nor Blackest Night
by Nicholas Robinson
A test pilot (Ryan Reynolds) is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe. – IMDB.com
I have been excited to see this movie for a long time now but then I heard the critics and my expectations dropped drastically (thank God for that!) and even though it wasn’t as bad as the critics were saying, it wasn’t special either. There are good movies and there are bad movies and then there are movies like these which have the unfortunate circumstances of being stuck so much in the middle that they become nothing but average. The acting was average, the story was average, the music was average, the comedy was average. The only things that were not average were the 3D and the action. The 3D was TERRIBLE and the action was above average.
Now I could go on and on about how PAINSTAKINGLY average this movie was, but that would not only be wasting my precious time but yours so I am going to keep this review short and to the point. The movie was extremely bland and completely forgettable. I hope you were one of the lucky ones (unlike me) who didn’t waste your hard earned money on this movie and spent it on something better (like an advanced seat for Harry Potter coming out in a couple of weeks). So farewell Green Lantern and please don’t make a sequel.
