Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?
A pretty dire prognostication for this flick, nay, the costumed-punchy-people genre
, in the Irish Times.
Tara Brady observes (from her review):
But as Hollywood rushes in to resurrect every soul who ever donned a cape or dispatched a villain mid-monologue, Supehero Fatigue Syndrome has set in. X-Men: First Class, despite excellent notices, has performed well below expectations, Thor failed to make a thunderous boom and predicted tallies for the rest of this summer's slate - Captain America: The First Avenger, etc - are hastily being revised downwards.
If the rapidly declining genre is starting to look awfully like the disaster flick at the end of the 1970s, then Green Lantern is the Airport '79 of superhero pictures.
'Spock is always right, even when he's wrong. It's the tone of voice, the supernatural reasonability; this is not a man like us; this is a god.'
- Philip K. Dick
