- I enjoyed the film … a lot, but I thought they were all over the place
- I loved the movie. Period. Moving on ...
- I loved it. I know there were some bad reviews, but halfway through I was thinking about what was going to be on the DVD
Standout Moments or Characters
- Hector Hammond stuff was unnecessary, too much for the average movie goer, too much jumping around
- Sinestro was well played
- Were was Hal’s growth into a Green Lantern?
- Mark Strong was exactly what Glenn pictured him as a Green Lantern
- Ryan Reynolds did a good job as Hal Jordan
- Blake Lively was replaceable but did a solid job
- Voice acting from Michael Duncan Clarke and Geoffrey Rush
- I was afraid of it being Van Wilder in space and it was to a point, but they made it work
- Hal Jordan saw some in trouble and acted, took a second when he noticed it was a dying purple alien but acted.
- Abin Sur was portrayed as a chump whose battle strategy was run away! FAIL!
- How cool was EVERYTHING on Oa! They needed to spend more time on Hal’s training.
- How did they do all the green screen stuff on this movie?
- Blake Lively was alright, but totally replaceable.
- Tim Robbins was on screen to collect a check. FAIL!
- Movie Prequel Comic with Tomar Re leads into the very first scene of the movie, Not mandatory … but cool tie-in nonetheless.
- Explanation of why the Planet Ryut is important in DC Comics.
- X’s Note: Krona was the actual Guardian banished to Ryut in DC Comics Continuity, but he didn’t become Parralax!
- What is with the orange popcorn salt nowadays?
- Amanda Waller was not a run of the mill scientist. She is supposed to be bad ass. FAIL!
- Would it have killed you to mention Metropolis or Gotham City? FAIL!
- Carol Fenris call sign was “Saphire” and she had a Violet Lantern Corps symbol on her helmet.
- Green Lantern Appearances: Bzzd, Boodikka, Stel and Salaak
- Sinestro puts on the Yellow Lantern Ring and his uniform turns yellow. NICE!
- Noob’s note: Although the story behind the Yellow Power ring had a makeshift origin in the movie. FAIL!
- It was good and entertaining, but just good.
- I loved it and I am going to go see it a second time.
- I am wearing a Green Lantern Tee-Shirt right not, I wore it when I went to see the movie
- I wore my Green Lantern Power Ring, My five-year-old son Vasili wore his Green Lantern Power Ring. My ten-year-old daughter Eleni wore her Indigo Tribe Power Ring and my fifteen-year-old son Danis wanted to sit in another car.
