Based on the DC comic, Green Lantern, this movie features characters from the comics. Like other superhero movies, there is a villain that poses a threat to Earth and must be defeated by a green lantern, Hal Jordon. There are many green lanterns, but a villain named Parallax defeats many of them, and one of the green lanterns retreats and ends up on Earth. He is close to death and so Hal Jordon succeeds him. Will Hal Jordon be able to protect Earth from the evil Parallax? I am not really into DC comics and therefore I cannot judge how those familiar with the comics will find this movie, but it may be worth a shot to watch.

Horrible movie. Watch Deadpool instead, it has the same lead actor and is much more well done.

Besides the taking of Our LORD's name in vain and the immoral/sexual content, it was a good movie. There are some things that aren't true, but are Ok because it is a Sci-Fi movie.

I liked this film, it's a good intro to the character, for a newbie like me. It shows some common knowledge on Green Lantern, what I didn't know was that he is a part of a whole customized team of guardians. Yeah, that new!

Despite what everyone else here said, I really enjoyed the movie. The storyline was great, it was funny, and there was plenty of action. We are all entitled to our opinions so I won't argue but I love this movie. The only thing I don't like is Ryan Reynolds being deadpool and green lantern.

After watching the extended cut of this film I pronounce the experience to be decidedly...average. I neither hated the film, its protagonist, or villain(s)...but at the same time I didn't end up with a whole lot of interest in or affection for any of the above, either. The best thing about it was probably Ryan Reynold's charm and charisma as Hal Jordan, plus a few stunningly rendered CGI sequences. The worst thing about it was the silly digitally-painted-on green mask on Reynold's face while he is in costume as the Green Lantern, in Blu-Ray high def it looked even phonier and was a major distraction.
On the whole I can see why they decided to shelve the character and franchise for the foreseeable future, though it's been announced that the Lantern will return in 2020.
Sadly, I presume that the motion picture's under-performance spelled the doom of the generally excellent Green Lantern Animated Series, which I highly recommend to anyone with an interest in the character.

Likeable and watchable, though it didnt quite mesh with the critics who panned it upon it's 2011 release, this comic book adaptation of the DC hero Green Lantern does have plenty of action and fantasy element, so as to not totally alienate it's target audience. I enjoyed Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan who receives the famed Green Ring and Lantern from Abin Sur and upon the utterance of the oath, becomes the interstellar superhero of the title. Mark Strong as Sinestro is a strong performance for the actor, and even though here is portrayed as a member of the Corps. you can tell that he is destined to become evil as time goes on. By any means, not an epic, however fun.
