I just realized after a year of shooting off my virtual mouth about Green Lantern, I never posted my thoughts on the movie once I actually saw it!
In short, I enjoyed it. The special effects were awesome. It was fun to see this character I have followed and enjoyed for the last 25 years brought to life on the screen.
My only disappointment with the movie was that I felt somewhat misled about how much of a role the rest of the Green Lantern Corp would play. All of the trailers, advertising, posters, etc., featured the rest of the Green Lanterns heavily – I thought the movie would center on them as a group, but in reality they were only a few minutes here and there. Hal Jordan’s entire training and interaction with the other GL’s on Oa lasted all of a few minutes, and then it was back to Earth and Hal on his own.
Other than that, though, it was a great origin story. I enjoyed the humor, loved seeing it in 3D, liked the teaser during the credits (Sinestro trying on the yellow ring), and will be definitely hoping for another one!
