not everything needs to be played straight and for the film critics

not every war film needs to be the thin red line, there is a whole audience that would very much appreciate a less heavy film experience especially around this time of year

it's so easy to pick a film apart from it's many missed opportunities
while completely missing out on intent

bay caters to this audience while the critics and boarders hate him for not making it the way they wanted

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
