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

B grade for me. I'd give it 3/4 stars as well.

I just came back from "Green Lantern". I enjoyed it. Thought it was one of the most rushed superhero origin stories that I've ever seen. It basically tried to pack about a dozen or so years worth of arcs into one hour and a half movie trying to please all facets of the GL fandom and I think it suffered from that. Ryan Reynolds impressed the hell out of me though. I was expecting him to be shit. Blake Lively was tolerable. Mark Strong was great as Sinestro although Tomar Re was more of a mentor to Hal than he was in this film. The training sequence was a joke. I thought the Hector Hammond stuff was among the weakest in the film...I don't like him much as a character though to begin with. I'll still be getting this on DVD though. Probably will be seeing this a couple more times.
