Green Lantern Is Out In Two Days!

That’s right, people. Green Lantern is out on Friday in the US!

The story goes over the inception of one of DC’s most iconic and enduring characters. Ryan Reynolds stars as the roguish and cocky test pilot Hal Jordan, who fatefully discovers a crashed alien spaceship and is bequeathed a mysterious power ring by it’s dying occupant.

Wielding the ring, Hal is able to channel powers that allow him to do almost anything, simply by thinking of it. Such powers are in the keep of the Green Lanterns, a battalion of interstellar guardians of the universe who are sworn to defeat evil whenever it’s encountered.

This movie has been flying fairly under the radar for a while now. While other films have  received massive hype, Green Lantern has been cruising along on it’s impressive trailers and internet speculation for a while now. While undoubtedly spectacular and engaging and breathtaking ion scope and execution, there still is the underlying sense that there might be something… off about the whole thing.

Indeed, the desperate desire of fans all around the Internet has been the same: “I really hope they don’t mess this one up“. After being pleasantly surprised by X-Men a couple of weeks ago, it’s easy to mirror the sentiment by being cautious yet hopeful.

Aaaaand, I just finished one of UK reviews for the movie while writing this. Apparently, it’s not purported to be that great. If I see it, I’ll review it personally. If not, it doesn’t look like its gonna be a huge loss, really.

One Response to: Green Lantern Is Out In Two Days!

All I can say is that I was very fascinated with this film. Based on the trailers, I was expecting this film to be below average, I was wrong. In my opinion, for a superhero film to work, it all narrows down to special effects and the acting. For this movie, both are great. This movie may possibly not have been as good as X-men: First Class or The Dark Knight, but it is an above average superhero movie. Ryan Reynolds is good as always and Mark Strong delivered a strong performance as well. This movie is heavy on special effects and they are Impressive. The dialogue is nothing new but don’t expect it to be very good given the fact that its a superhero movie. Overall, this movie was very well done and I liked it a whole lot more than I thought it would. I hope this may be the first of many Green Lantern movies since this has the potential to become a great movie franchise.
