Glad I have an category of Hug between a Snog and an Avoid as Green Lantern would probably have been an Avoid.

Loads of effects that end up being a bit dull and a script that has less in it than jar of air. Ryan gives a cheeky-chappy feel and Blake is not only really good looking but also has a potential for some heart-felt scenes. Didn’t really have many though and those there were seemed just a bit stinted.

The overall feel was that the comic ruled the screen rather than the script and whilst hard-core fans might be happy, the film is a little dull to say the least. Corny lines, corny alien plant, corny bad guy. Felt like they made this in the 90s.

Just enough for a comic/superhero fan to see but not enough for anyone else. I actually want to rate this as Avoid now. No, give it a chance as long as it promises not to have a sequel.
