Review: Green Lantern

A test pilot 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.

I have been waiting to see this movie for a very long time and I was not disappointed. Ryan Reynolds made Hal Jordan his own character and did a great job with it. For any comic fan they will know the story and they do stick to the original Green Lantern story and with some very nice special effects and graphics. I loved how they portrayed the Green Lantern and the Lantern Core, but I would have liked to meet a few more of the Green Lanterns and get used to their characters but they tried to keep it revolving around Hal Jordan. It was a bit slow at first since he is discovering the powers and what he can do but once the action picked up it was amazing. To those who follow the Green Lantern animated movies we do know what is next for the movie but I hope they do something very different since they already introduced the character and for Green Lantern they don’t need to stick to Earth or any one setting. Fun movie and loved the action, and especially the suit.

Green Lantarn @ ComicCon

GLPoster

For those who don’t know, Comic Con is the biggest Comic Fan convention in the world taking place in San Diego, and many big movies are previewed their with panels from all the actors, producers, directors, and writers. And luckily over the last few years comics are taken more seriously thanks to Batman & Iron Man, but now the movie blockbuster of next summer is Green Lantern. First thing first, I’m a huge Green Lantern fan, him being my favorite comic book character, a ring the has unlimited power, and its only limits is your will power and imagination. New of the movie got me excited but I wasn’t sure of Ryan Reynolds, since I’m used to him being a comedian, the funny guy, the guy that made us one of the best comedies period, Van Wilder, and I also loved him in Smokin Aces, but as the Green Lantern I wasn’t sure. Its a story you have known all your life, and now that it’s coming to the big screen, I just hope that no one screws the movie up, but after that Comic Con panel video below, I have to say that I think Ryan Reynolds will rock as Hal Jordan the Green Lantern, especially at the 1:32 mark.
