This summer has been a barrage of comic book adaptations, with Thor, X-Men: First Class and Green Lantern all hitting the big screen with gusto. Green Lantern looked promising from the previews, with Ryan Reynold's and his wit being matched up with some impressive visuals. As a kid, I was always a Batman and X-Men fan, so to be honest I know next to nothing about the Green Lantern story, but it looked interesting enough to warrant a watch.
|That big, evil cloud thing is Parallax. It eats people and planets, but no vegetables.|
|Purple aliens... this looks promising.|
|The world's only hope for survival is a Canadian.|
|Mark Strong basically unrecognizable as Sinestro.|
|Not even the ring could save this one, pal.|
TL;DR - All flash and no dash for Hal Jordan - 5.5/10
