Green Lantern Review

Posted: June 24, 2011 in Comics, Movies

I saw Green Lantern last weekend after Nerdtacular 2011. Here is my review of the movie. I though the story was pretty good. However they tried to put too many plot points into the movie so some stuff seems like some stuff is barely covered. Maybe with one or two less story lines going on would have helped this movie. There is a love story sub-plot that did feel a little forced.

Ryan Reynolds does a good job as Hal Jordan and Mark Strong was very good as Sinestro. The supporting cast also does a pretty good job. The visuals were quite good. I only had a couple issues with Hal’s mask and the CGI when he would be flying in space. Other than that the visuals were quite good.

Overall I enjoyed the movie. It is not the best comic book movie ever made nor is it the worst. I had fun while watching it and that is all I really wanted/expected.


  • Interesting CGI
  • Well acted


  • CGI can be spotty at times.
  • Hal’s mask looks weird
  • Too many plot points
