Green Lantern Is the Best of All Superheroes

I was most happy to learn of the coming Green Lantern movie that will star Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard. Also I have been told that the great Angela Bassett will also be in the film. This film is especially exciting for me because as a young boy the Green Lantern was my favorite of all superheroes.

It always seemed to me that while many superheroes were just lucky to be in the right time and place and were given their powers by the grace of God, the members of the Green Lantern Corps had to earn the privilege of serving. It was something a youngster could strive to live up to. So to me, this makes Green Lantern a special comic book and movie. They were the police officers in space and here on Earth.

When I heard that Green Lantern was to be made as a movie I had to shout "Hoorah!" This has made me very excited and I believe this will the best superhero movie even better than Iron Man and The Dark Knight with the Batman. And that is really saying something special because these are my favorites and many consider them the best there is even better than the Spider-man movies. I will be hoping that Green Lantern will be as successful as these other comic book heores so that he also may have a series of films released. Some may say he is not popular enough but I say he is aces!

What do you think about Ryan Reynolds as the Green Latern?

Hi there.

Well, I saw the movie this past Saturday, and while Ryan Reynalds did an admirable job as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, the movie just did not hit the mark for me. It wasn't terrible, but it was not the blockbuster hit that it could have been.

What did you think of the movie?

I would have to say I pretty much agree with you on all points. I enjoyed Ryan Reynolds in the role, but the movie just did not have quite the impact I was expecting. Maybe my expectations were too high and I will like it better after repeated viewings once I have the DVD because I DO have to have the DVD. But yes, it was a little less than I expected.
