The Cinematheque Reviews: Green Lantern

Ya know, there are a lot of people out there talking about how incredibly bad Green Lantern is.  Some of them are even talking Battlefield Earth bad.  Now c'mon guys, perhaps the film is lacking in many ways - mainly in the way of spectacular visuals that should be there but just are not - but to say the film is Battlefield Earth bad!?  Okay, it is far from great, but at worst it falls into the mediocre section  (or perhaps slightly higher) of the universal ratings system.  My review of said mediocre (or perhaps slightly higher) superhero movie is up and running over at The Cinematheque.

Hal Jordan and his Green Lantern Corps compatriots in a scene that shows the visually spectacular potential that is never fully realized by the filmmakers.  Still though, the movie is better (relatively) than most have been giving it credit for being.

The mythology is nonsensical and the plot takes forever to get going. But once it does, the movie takes advantage of a strong cast and a director who knows what he's doing. Good Review! Check out mine when you can!
