    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.
