It has it's own unique flavor and people either got it or they didn't it. I think the average person doesn't know anything about GL and so the story's simplicity was called out as a result.
The DVD/Bd sales have been VERY good for a movie that only made £116 million domestic. Its blu-ray sales werent far off that of First Class and its DVD sales have been comparable to Thor, both of which were a lot more successful at the BO and with critics than Green Lantern was. I'd say competing with those 2 in the home market means that GL is doing very well there.
