I finally caught Green Lantern for the first time today (on HBO), and it wasn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. The worst parts were Parallax and the special effects (the CGI suit is fine on the CGI characters but doesn't look convincing enough on Hal). I thought the acting wasn't bad and was convincing for its tone. I'll agree with the guy that said that some moments look and feel like a CW show, but Arrow/Supernatural CW as opposed to say, Heart of Dixie CW.

Overall, I say let them make a sequel (or use Reynolds for Hal in JL). I'd rather rewatch Green Lantern over Dark Knight Rises, so that's something.

You're not the only one who likes it. I liked it a lot sure it wasn't as bad as people have made out.

Also its one of the few superhero films that actually delivers in its final fight. Hal vs Parallax was pretty awesome.

I still say if this film had come out 10 years ago it would have been better received.

Its a shame it didn't manage to turn a profit in cause far worse movies have. I really think a sequel would've ironed out any problems.

And totally agree on keeping Ryan Reynolds as GL.

I agree. I think GL is a averege comic book movie. Its biggest problem being that superhero movies have stepped up quite a lot with the Nolan Batman films, Avengers, Iron Man etc. I prefer GL to FF, GR 1&2,DD and even fairly recent stuff like the third X-men movie or Wolverine.

I don't get the hatred, its an averege comicbook movie, the extended cut being an ok one at that. I'm not saying it's flawless or great. But nowhere near as bad as people say.

Even though Ryan Reynolds is only a few months younger than me, I consider John Cusack to be a better actor. His timing in Con Air is entertaining.

I watched about half of it on cable not long ago. It's just as terrible as it was at the midnight screening. It flat out sucks.

Green Lantern will have to be the Hulk of the JLA flick if the character is ever going to get a sequel. I wouldn't want to see a sequel until he goes through a JLA cleansing anyway. Where the first film left him at the end is so ****** and unearned.

The 'Green Lantern' movie fell a little flat, sure, but it wasn't completely terrible.

I think they should just do a soft reboot, not ignoring the first movie, but just continuing on with a different tone and better script.

They don't have to acknowledge every little detail from the first one.

I think Reynolds et al deserve a second shot at this.

But not Punisher Warzone that was awful, I don't want a reboot but I guess that's the best we can hope for. Tbh I think the only Green Lantern we're gonna see in live-action is in JL unless he has an epic Hulk like impact in Avengers and starts shifting merchandise then it's gonna be a very long time if ever we get a Green Lantern movie again.

There was nothing average about GL. Even if it went straight to sci-fi(like it should have) I would have thought it was terrible. The only reason I think it's not getting a lot of hate is because of Ryan Reynolds fans. At least some bad movies are comical at how bad they are this movie is just hard to watch for more than a minute. I mean watching a 1 minute clip on youtube is even hard to do.

Nah. I think you just have an odd way of seeing things. It's a rushed Hollywood production, with most things being around averege. If you think Mark Strong is "terrible" in it, or the End Fight with Parallax looks like something on the SyFy channel, and is "painful to watch", then I guess your cable provider offers a different SyFy channel than what I have watched.

Regarding Reynolds. Never really followed him or his career, thought he was ok. Nothing fantastic there (that type of production) but he did ok with what he had.

I don't think GREEN LANTERN was really all that rushed as a project.

It took years to gestate, and even after a script was finished, it wasn't exactly fast tracked.

What they need to do with the GL movies is what Marvel did with the Hulk films. Just keep going and adjust along the way. 1st Hulk film, bombed and isn't liked by most. So the second starred a new guy as Banner, new Ross and Betty, and better looking Hulk. They changed a lot but never retold the origin. Just sort of talked about it and fixed things that didn't work. Then they kept that going with Hulk in the Avengers. With a new Banner and a slightly different concept for How and Why he becomes the Hulk. Now we finally have a Hulk that seems to work for everyone.
So the next GL films could do the same. Different guy playing Hal, different woman playing Carol. Adjust the origin as needed. Maybe This time Hal just go out of GL training with Kilowag and is now partners with Sinestro who isn't a yellow lantern.
This film is like Training Day, with changes because you don't want it to seem like a copy even though the concept was in the comic first. But keep the idea started in the 1st film about the corps and the wring and everything. Maybe even keep the costume similar enough.
So it was established in GL 1 that there is an alien police force with rings that can create green energy things from the wearers imagination. There are characters named Hal, Sinestro, Carol, Kilowag, Tomar Ray, the Guardians, a place called Oa, etc. If the next film doesn't work just keep it going like the Hulk then too.
