Green Lantern

As it turned out, this Green Lantern movie is more of a origins movie. It shows a human being selected for Green Lantern Corps and his “coming to terms” with it. There wasn’t much of Green Lantern action at all. Even in the parts where there is action, it is mildly engaging and sparsely intense.

The lighter moments are also shown well and they do get the audience laughing. The movie feels lacking of any real emotion of grief and loss for most of its part.

The story does not have a lot of twists and turns, which is how it normally is for a kids’ movie. The plot moves straight ahead and it is fairly predictable. It is a good watch overall and the 3D experience added to the value.
