It should have been a cosmic buddie cop movie. Focus more on Hal and Sinestro's relationship. From resentment, to begrudging respect, to full on friendship by films end. We learn the GL mythos as Hal does... instead of some ill conceived opening montage that the viewer has no emotional attachment to.
The whole thing was just unimaginative and lazy. It's like the studio just wanted the origin out of the way so they could kick on with this big new franchise. Problem is, you gotta make a decent first movie for a franchise to be viable.
Seems they learn a lot of lessons from the GL debacle. So it's a blessing in disguise really.
Not for GL fans. Even if they learned their lesson, the film might have scared WB off from even touching the property again any time in the near future.
