Fan expectations are high for this beloved comic-turned-movie. Ryan Reynolds is Hal Jordan, hot shot pilot and unexpected hero. A brunette Blake Lively is his wingman/boss and Peter Sarsgaard is Hector, a lovable but easily corrupted braniac. Green Lantern relies heavily on CG (including Reynolds in a digitally created green suit) as the Lanterns rely heavily on the power of imagination. Tons of mythology is thrown at you but the script and director Martin Campbell utilize Ryan’s dry wit to make it entertaining and good summer fun. Stick around for the first part of the credits for the sequel set-up.
