Reynolds is charming as the green-outfitted superhero, and does well in the film’s cheeky-comedy sequences. But Parallax is such an abstract villain that there’s never any sense of real danger in the film. For me, Green Lantern failed because of its over-dependence on CGI and special effects; there were times I felt I was watching a jazzy video game. The story is simplistic, there’s barely any character depth to speak of, and the acting is mostly hammy. Coming so close on the heels of the superb X-Men: First Class, you can’t help feeling underwhelmed and a tad cheated too.I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for Green Lantern. It’s bright and shiny, but its battery runs out too soon.

Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Rashid Irani Site:HindustanTimes
Scripted by no fewer than four writers, the son-et-lumiere spectacle is marred by crummy CGI, eardrum-shattering sound effects and plenty of psychobabble. Inevitably, niceties such as in-depth characterisations take a back seat.Like many recent mega-budget extravaganzas, The Green Lantern is filmed in 3D. But the extra dimension adds nothing to the viewing experience. Rather, it’s just another instance to stick to traditional 2D.
Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Johnson Thomas Site:MidDay
The film was fashioned on a poorly written script that is terribly cliched in construction. The set-up is as cheesy and unexciting as can be with Hal being troubled by his father’s death and therefore being motivated to enjoy the full benefits of the Lantern powers.The motivation appears quite shaky and coupled with the uneven run of special effects, action set-pieces and editing that fails to generate the requisite excitement or energy, the narrative appears unimaginative, failing in effect to bring out the full potential of this superhero story!
