In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, an elite, powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. When a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds). Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal's humanity is one weapon no member of the Corps has ever had, and if--with willpower, determination and the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively)--Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he will save the Earth and all of mankind from certain destruction.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A relentlessly silly superhero flick with eyeball-rolling dialogue - set in vast, familiar-looking digital realms that look like rejected models from the second "Star Wars" trilogy.
Rotten: Neither amusing nor exciting enough to ensure a long-running franchise.
Rotten: The result makes the movie seem assembled from bits and pieces of other superhero yarns rather than existing on a plane of its own.
Rotten: As a disjointed rumble in the cosmos, it's both too much and too little, and too dorky looking. In this case, Green means stop.
Shine a little light on the Lantern
Avoid the extreme reviews - the "Best movie I've ever seen!" - what are you, 12?
"This is the worst movie in the history of movies!" And you've seen how many movies over how many genres, spanning how many years?
I'm in the middle - I enjoyed it; my expectations were for an action movie with lots of good CG, and it didn't disappoint.
Of course, the characters are shallow - iT'S BASED ON A COMIC! Just about what I expected. (I like the shade of green they selected. See? Shallow...)
Enjoy the film for what it is - have fun...
They are so dumb this movie was AWESOME!!!!!!!
Are you kidding? Ryan Reynolds Pulled it off. Much better than Being Deadpool Personally. They did quite well. Definitley adding this to my collection.?
