Ok folks, I’m sorry… I tried, I really did but I just couldn’t stomach it past the first 15min of this movie. It’s absolutely painful! I’m not sure if it’s the overuse of blatant CG or the horrible story telling that just shoves you into the universe too suddenly, but man, this was bad. Maybe it gets better later, maybe I’m a bit too harsh, but I just couldn’t do it. Perhaps one day I’ll attempt it again, but for now, I’m throwing in the towel.
Anyways, for those folks that don’t know, Mr. Green Lantern here has one of the absolute worst weaknesses in all of comic history. The color yellow!! No, you didn’t read that wrong… literally, the color. I’m not exactly sure how the mechanics of it work, but apparently anything yellow makes his ring not work… or something like that. Talk about having your kyptonite sitting around every where you go! Never mind that green is made up of blue and YELLOW, but it seems like quite the disadvantage… I mean, how could you compete with that? Couldn’t someone just point a yellow filtered flashlight in your direction and you lose all your powers? I guess at the very least it makes things interesting in a fight.
