"Green Lantern" is one of the superhero movies launched this year, based on the Marvel comic book of the same name. Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds, who was clearly hired as eye candy, stars as the Green Lantern, who is an aviator struggling with memories of his deceased dad. 

He is chosen as a superhero by a wait for it..."Green Lantern" from another planet that is really fond of the color green. "Gossip Girl" television actress Blake Lively, hired as additional eye candy, stars as the Lantern’s love interest and co-worker that the bad guys go after.

First off, I saw so much green in this move, I started getting tired of the color. Everywhere you look green…green…green. We get the point. It’s GREEN Latern. The special EFX were better than average though, but it made the movie a little too slick. 

When I saw this scene, especially the forehead, I thought "Oh, I didn't know Rihanna was in this film" (LOL)

The storyline for this film was a bit weak. Accomplished actress, Angela Basset and a host of character’s with sophisticated British accents were hired to give the film credibility, but it wasn’t enough in the face of bad lines. A good script is important and that was lacking here. Too many clichés and trite jokes. 

Furthermore, how many times is Hollywood going to run with that reluctant superhero thing. "Spiderman" just about wore it out and "Green Lantern" finished it off. Still, this movie has something going for it...it wasn't the Green Hornet (now that movie was bad).
