So I just saw the new Green Lantern movie and I decided to give my review of it. If you don't know what or who the Green Lantern is, basically they are a large community of aliens called the Green Lantern Core and they all live one planet far out in space. The core was made by The Guardians and created a Green Lantern ring which can materialize anything by using energy from the one who wears it. Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) is chosen to be the next Green Lantern and the first human after one Green Lantern crash lands on earth. The movie is pretty good, but not the best superhero movie I've seen. Granted it is a intro/beginning movie to a whole series. So it had to tell of how Hal Jordan became a Green Lantern and really focused on him and his life. The main villian was somewhat good as a villian, but the source of his power was alot more intimidating. It was this huge blog smoke-like monster that was once one of the Guardians and it feed on fear and could kill anybody by taking the fear, literally right out of their body. The way Hal destroyed it, I thought, was good. There was no other real effective way than that. Overall, the movie was good, if you like superhero movies. Could have been better, more action and fighting. I would give it a 7/10. Not the best movie but not that terrible either. Go see it for yourself to form your own opinion.
