Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?

I give it a B+. It's definitely not fanboy proof (what is anyway?), but I thought it was a good take on the Green Lantern mythos that people who don't know the first thing about it can enjoy. While Hal Jordan isn't my favorite Green Lantern, I found myself liking Ryan Reynolds' average joe take on the role. Mark Strong as Sinestro was a scene stealer, IMO. Loved seeing the Corps all 3600 members strong on Oa as well as Jordan gradually mastering his ring.

But one thing for sure is that this movie was written with a sequel in mind, and nothing hammers that more is the clip that comes in after the closing credits.
