I'm a fan of Green Lantern. A 56 year old fan. Before CGI the only thing out there to stimulate the imagination about the unknown powers of the universe were comic books. At least it was like that for me. We're just now discovering new sciences that I swear was first seen in comic books. Yes it was fantasy but what if it wasn't? What if there were really aliens out there. And I actually feel sorry for those that didn't think the movie was in keeping with main stream entertainment doctrine. You have to pay attention, think, and use your imagination on a movie like this. On the contrary, I felt the movie was made just for me and others like me who still believe in virtues that defines all that is good about human beings, and how to overcome weakness. This movie is the definitive description of what a Super Hero movie is. And I'm truly grateful to the producers of this movie for keeping it true to it comic book story line. For me its a gift that I fell that the timing was right. At 56 you might say I had to wait 46 years to see it on the big screen after getting my first Green Lantern comic book. And it felt great. Love this movie

This version of the movie has many of the stupid awkward moments cut out and some shoddy camera shots fixed up. This for all in intents and purposes is a touch up, and like any touch up sometimes it makes things worse but this time it really worked. I saw this movie in theaters in 2d and 3d and I thought it was pretty bad considering its the Green frig-gen lantern which has so much to work with. Summary this version makes the movie not only worth watching but very good.

Green Lantern has received quite a bit of flak from reviewers for not being mainstream enough to relate to modern audiences. And that's a shame, because if Green Lantern is guilty of anything, it's of being a SUPERHERO movie.

Back before all these directors started streamlining films, revising backstories, and taking out Spider-Man's technologically-advanced web shooters, comic books were a glorious hodge-podge of the near possible, the impossible, and the just plain fantastic. Because superhero settings include every superhero and villain imaginable, they have to accommodate magic, aliens, superscience, and alternate dimensions in one heady mix. This makes for a very rich comic book series that can be intimidating for new audiences - which is precisely why movie directors cut out so much.

But you can't cut all the crazy out of Green Lantern and still stay true to the comics. And so, with tons of exposition, Green Lantern rabbit-punches viewers with world-shattering fact after mind-altering fact in the first five minutes: aliens exist, there's a giant yellow monster imprisoned in a planet, ancient humanoids predating humanity have been guarding the universe with green willpower, and there's a dizzying variety of highly advanced technical races from across the galaxy. Green Lantern makes Superman's backstory look quaint. His name doesn't help either - Emerald Flashlight has to say an oath that activates a ring that's charged by a lantern that's powered by a planet that's actually the embodiment of all sentient beings' will. No wonder critics got confused.

I'll admit up front that I wasn't that familiar with the Green Lantern character before this movie. In fact, if I hadn't have talked to a friend who was a fan of the comics, everything I knew would have been from watching the old "Justice League" cartoons on Saturday mornings -- the ones in which Green Lantern was just another random face in the crowd. At least he wasn't the Wonder Twins, but Aquaman got more love than Green Lantern on that show. Thankfully, my friend explained why Green Lantern is so cool. I mean, having the power to create anything you can imagine... that's pretty awesome stuff. Obviously, the more imaginative the person, the better, and that was my main concern going in to this movie -- that the things the writers came up with for Green Lantern to create wouldn't be that creative. But I think they actually did a pretty good job in that department. Of course you have to keep in mind that he has to come up with these things on the spot, without a lot of time to sit around and think about it. The movie does have its flaws. There are a few scenes that feel cliche and it could have used a bit more action and a longer end fight, etc., but I still found it to be a fun, inspiring movie overall. I loved the "courage overcoming fear" storyline. As it turned out, it was the best time I had at the movies all summer.

Some people who hate on this film obviously couldn't suspend their disbelief long enough to enjoy it. It's not the greatest DC hero, but the outer space sequences were really cool, especially in 3D, and Ryan Reynolds' suit effects were cool to see glimmer as he stood with the Core. The final battle may have been weak, but I'm sure they were hoping to set up sequels with larger battles ala Star Wars or other space opera. Hopefully they won't give up on this franchise, it would be a great way to see other cosmic DC heroes show up in later sequels.
