Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?
If they needed to show Green Lantern overcoming his fear, then they should have used Kyle Rayner. Hal Jordan has always been pretty much fearless (to the point of being stupid sometimes.) But again, this brings me back to another problem I've always had with the character, and that is that Hal is the least interesting of the main lanterns. Green Lantern is not all that cool. Now, the Green Lantern Corps, that is AWESOME! That's what the movie should have been about.
I think again...the movie suggested there is no such thing as NO FEAR, even the GL corps when faced with Parallax showed fear and died to feed it. The best GLs control their fear and use it.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
