But, I still find it entirely watchable, with Reynolds being a good lead, and Mark Strong a great Sinestro, it entirely warrants a watch, if only to see how not to make an origin story. It's everything a Green Lantern film shouldn't be, truth be told, and it pays the price accordingly. I might of bought it. The Air Force scenes are very cheesy and unbelievable, taking away from the seriousness Hals origins. Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before.
Hal Jordan, Abin Sur, Kilowog, Sinestro, Tomar-Re. Eh, there were a few, just a few I tell you, parts where the graphics pulled the cartoon look of Spiderman 3. Moving on to the extras, we start off with two cuts of the film: Theatrical Running 114 minutes and the extended cut 123 min. Each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. At the end of the day, don't listen to the critics. Blake Lively was eye candy; super hot, but not much else; 4. And he might just be the right Lantern for the job of keeping the world safe from harm.
The rear speakers are responsible for plenty of sonic flash and flair as well. If I'm rating just the 3D blu ray Green Lantern, it wins the best 3D Blu Ray released this year that I've seen. Alien warriors rocket past, energy blasts streak across space, Parallax billows and fills the soundfield, and every intergalactic hotspot and Earthbound locale is nice and immersive. Kids will enjoy it, but adults likely will not. You might agree with the critics or you might not. Even if you have a 3G service, those minutes are going to be eat up with the streaming through Flixster. Testpilot Hal Jordan hat mit Verantwortung nicht viel am Hut, er genießt lieber sein Leben.
Still, an eyesore is an eyesore. If the film's transfer came to life with the same vividness and tenacity as Warner's lossless mix, this would be an entirely different review. Oa was beautiful, just a couple notches below Asgard in Thor. While superpowered greens and yellows light up the screen with welcome vibrancy, Dion Beebe's palette -- or perhaps Warner's approximation of it -- looks as if it belongs in a film featuring the Dark Knight, not the Emerald Knight. Sarsgaard is very strange and weird, making Hector Hammond a weird, childish, effete man with major daddy issues. Back on Oa, Sinestro learns that Parallax is an embodiment of fear, they decide to forge a ring made of the yellow essence of fear, hoping to defeat fear with fear itself.
Sarsgaard, Robbins and Bassett ham it up to such heights that they nearly bring the film crashing down; Lively tries, and tries hard, but remains out of her element, out of her comfort zone and out of her league; Kilowog is wasted thanks to an uninteresting design and mashed-potatoes voicework; and, even with a whole universe to explore, Campbell and his screenwriters seem convinced that audiences won't relate to a story that doesn't take place on Earth, won't connect with characters who aren't human, and won't root for more than one hero. Amanda Waller Angela Bassett require the down-on-his-luck Corps rookie to save Earth from destruction. While it does have a beginning, middle and end, it isn't a memorable story, there isn't enough time spent in space If this was 50% Oa, 50% Eaarth, it would've been better training Hal, the dialogue is fairly clunky and cliched and the action being uninteresting despite having a huge deluge of comic book lore to go through. Strong stands out despite his truncated appearances and delivers an impassioned, dare I say nuanced performance, Rush and Brown's voicework is spot on, Reynolds does his best with a hit-or-miss screenplay, the Guardians of the Universe succeed on every level in spite of a few details that will leave comicbook purists grumbling and Jordan's training, short and insufficient as it may be, is a great set piece that provides visual, thematic and character-driven thrills aplenty. Hal Jordan is the universe's last chance, as many Green Lanterns have been killed and the Corps is weakened. Mark Strong is an acting powerhouse and as we have seen in the Dark Knight, it is the villain and not the hero that makes an exceptional comic book movie! Crush is an issue, as is middling delineation and some muddled fine textures. Note the Theatrical cut is only in 3D.
There, he meets Tomar-Re Geoffrey Rush who trains the new recruit with his power ring, Kilowag Michael Clark Duncan the drill sergeant of the Corps and Sinestro Mark Strong who is a mentor of Hal Jordan. I loved the new look of the Lanterns. The mask appears when the identity of a Lantern needs to be protected and eye color changes as well. I would recommend this to a friend I've been a fan of Ryan Reynolds since Blade, but let's face it. Those who make that comment are probably the ones who think Transformers is somehow an epic movie.
The 2D image is very dark and murky, even in sunlight scenes and scenes where explosions or the bursts of green and yellow are the main color, it fails to give us that color punch a lot of us are expecting despite being the best shots of the disc s. Green Lanterns Tomar Re, Kilowog and Abin Sur were damn good but didn't have enough screen time to be significant; 5. Don't want to say to deter future buyers. I would recommend this to a friend The movie was great, but the digital copy process is just stupid. No, I would not recommend this to a friend I enjoyed the Green Lantern movie. They should not compare the Green Lantern with those films.

Which is to say: not much at all. But when an enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan Ryan Reynolds. I'd clean the oven instead of watching it again. There, he receives rudimentary training from three veteran Lanterns -- Kilowog Michael Clarke Duncan , Tomar-Re Geoffrey Rush and Sinestro Mark Strong -- but quits the moment the going gets tough, returning to Earth like a pouting child.
