    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Hal claims that a Lantern's only enemy is fear itself. The thought of a sequel to this shamelessly soulless Hollywood product scares me plenty. show more

    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    There are pros and cons to this Green Lantern, a half-campy, half-compelling adaptation of the superheroic DC comic books. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    For a movie that touts the importance of humanity, Green Lantern is a strangely lifeless spectacle. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Green Lantern was meant to be a sci-fi adventure, but it proves to be a genuine mystery. How could its megamoola budget have yielded a production that looks almost as tacky as "Flash Gordon" (which had the good grace to deprecate itself at every turn)? show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    What has Campbell wrought? An intermittently amusing, interminable affair that for sheer ugliness and a scenery-chewing performance by Peter Sarsgaard has a certain Camp appeal. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    The effects are so omnipresent it's like Reynolds' perfect hair is floating in CGI limbo. Yet when they need punch, as in a "Superman"-ish display-of-powers scene involving a helicopter, there's no flair. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Serves up all the requisite elements with enough self-deprecating humor to suggest it doesn't take itself too seriously. show more

    The film splinters into three near-discrete storylines that don't play all that well together. show more

    Takes forever to get going and then goes nowhere. show more

    Mike Scott New Orleans Times-Picayune

    So what we have is a movie that will make at least two important groups happy. New Orleans boosters can cheer Green Lantern for its local roots and for the possibility that the inevitable future installments could return to town. And the purists can cheer, knowing that Campbell and crew have done Green Lantern justice. show more

    I actually skipped this movie when it was in the theaters because of the bad reviews. My mistake! I thoroughly enjoyed this movie on DVD and whish I had gone to see it on the big screen. It was a fun superhero movie. Thank you Green Lantern!

    I don\'t understand why the critics gave it a low rating. I thoroughly enjoyed it as did the majority of viewers. After all, It\'s a comic book come to life, not a Shakespeare novel.

    Its a buy the DVD movie for me. Conflict between \"fear\" and \"will\". Great theme, much deeper then meets the eye!

    I really loved this movie, I took my boyfriend to see it is funny movie and i think everyone could really love a superhero like green lantern because it always turns out in every movie the hero gets the girl.

    We have not seen this movie but I think it will probably make me think of green things.
