More Info:
  • Mike Scott

    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.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    For all the CGI action sequences and butt-rocking Dolby sound effects, in fact, Green Lantern is most satisfying when it sticks close to stodgy comic-book archetype. Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

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

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It's not only light, it's thin. It's self-deprecating to a fault. Reynolds is required to practically wink at the audience, as if to say,"I know this looks silly."

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Green Lantern does not intend to be plausible. It intends to be a sound-and-light show, assaulting the audience with sensational special effects. If that's what you want, that's what you get.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Apart from having no particular reason to exist onscreen, especially at these prices, it's not half bad.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    More science-fiction space opera than superhero epic, it works in fits and starts as its disparate parts go in and out of effectiveness, but the professionalism of the production make it watchable in a comic book kind of way.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Takes forever to get going and then goes nowhere.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    An attempt to infuse an earnest piece of comicbook lore with an irreverent, tongue-in-cheek sensibility yields decidedly mixed results in Green Lantern.

    Variety Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Reynolds makes Hal a perfectly functional comic-book hero, but there's a big difference between functional and super.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The result makes the movie seem assembled from bits and pieces of other superhero yarns rather than existing on a plane of its own.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    What gets sacrificed on the altar of this new franchise launch is any real sense of fun.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

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

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    It's neither amusing nor exciting enough to ensure a long-running franchise.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Apart from some spiffy visual effects, which create coherent, scary textures and architecture for outer space, Green Lantern is the most generic of summer time wasters.

    Time Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Green just isn't the superhero color this year.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    Martin Campbell, though a capable director of action (Hal's training session with the Michael Clarke Duncan-voiced Kilowog is proof of that), doesn't have a poet's instincts.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Glen Weldon

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

    NPR Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    Martin Campbell made Zorro and Bond work as contemporary heroes, but doesn't quite have the feel for poor old Hal Jordan. Green Lantern is dazzling in pieces, but we've seen too many sharper versions of the superhero origin story in the last few years. It's not Jonah Hex, but the battery runs low too quickly.

    Empire Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    The result is a deadly disappointment, despite Ryan Reynolds's cocky, muscle-flexing charisma as the daredevil test pilot turned intergalactic peacekeeper and Peter Sargaard's movie-stealing turn as a nerdy scientist turned psycho monster.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    The film, released in both 2D and 3D, delivers lots of freshly minted CGI'd action (eventually) but none of it grabs you. There's just something too synthetic about the whole enterprise - it's fantasy tipped over into fakery.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Karina Longworth

    The film never rewards the viewer for even trying to keep track of what is going on. So you give up, and instead try to grab on to the small pleasures, which momentarily distract from the fact that the narrative is nonsensical, the characters so boilerplate that their every action seem preordained from the earliest frames, even as the action on-screen is often incoherent.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Whenever this Lantern returns to terra firma (too often), its imaginative flights are ground down under the Warners overlords' demographic-pandering heels.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Blake Lively doesn't have a whole lot to do as Hal's employer and occasional lover, who sometimes requires rescuing. No great loss; she and Reynolds have minus-zero chemistry.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    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.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The spectacular collapse of Green Lantern is bound to be blamed on Reynolds, but the villainy has its origins in an injustice league of TV-trained screenwriters and tin-hearted studio suits.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Well, Green Lantern isn't "Jonah Hex" bad. But it's silly enough to be part of the same "silliest Warner Brothers comic book summer movies of all time" conversation.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    A film so utterly lacking in conviction, it needs a 25-year-old Tom Cruise vehicle just to keep its spine straight.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Green Lantern is bad. This despite Mr. Reynolds's dazzling dentistry, hard-body physique and earnest efforts.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    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)?

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Can we please get over the notion that every superhero in a skintight suit deserves a movie? Green Lantern is the latest wallet drainer emptying the comic book bench, more thudding than "Thor" and sorely incoherent.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The film is remarkably stunted.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    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.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The tone is all over the place, which makes the movie difficult to take neither seriously nor as popcorn fluff.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Even as a prime example of rotten summer silliness, this is a paralyzing experience.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It's a helluva comic book, to be sure, but it's a godawful mess of a movie.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Even by the standards of the current run of mediocre comic-book movies, this one stands out for its egregious shoddiness.
