There was hardly a boring or a meh moment in the entire movie. Some of the jokes are not exactly pristine but Gru’s accent takes care of that, and leaves you laughing out loud.

And once I watched the movie, I found out I was right. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even though there was a small part of me that wanted to see the epicness. The action and pacing was great. Kirk and Spock were excellently portrayed, as expected. But the movie was still somewhat of a mess. It didn’t feel like a Star Trek movie, at least not one with Kirk and Spock.
It has all ended! Seven Harry Potter movies later, we have come to the last movie of the series. Seven books and eight movies is quite a story and it falls on the last movie to give a fitting end to the series. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, shortest in terms of runtime as well as in the number of chapters it covers, provides a spectacular ending to the series that spanned a decade.
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.
This movie was all that I hoped it to be. It was not long, was funny for adults and kids, was fun to watch and showed subtle points you would want to emphasize to your kids when you tell them stories or fairy tales.
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.
