I was opposed to the movie, even though Ryan Reynolds plays the Green Lantern. My thoughts were; I do not really care too much for Sci-Fi/Fantasy super hero thing, his ridiculous weakness is the color YELLOW! seriously wtf that? And all this alien universe and creatures... not really my cup of tea. And then my friends and husband kind of dragged me, I am glad they did because I love it.
My friend Jamie has a very high comic book IQ and know everything about the all these super heroes. So he was relieve that Hal Jordan's weakness is actually not the color yellow but the color of fear, which represents yellow. I am glad that they made the first scene of the movie as awesome as it is. I love how Hal have this bad ass daredevil personality yet when he became Green Lantern and seek audience to talk with the Guardians he actually admitted that he is acknowledging his fear. The cockiness just completely went out the door, and that is not a bad thing. It was where every body saw why the ring picked him to replace Abin Sur.
I am kind of disappointed with Carol Ferris, I was so impressed with this chick when they were doing the flight demonstration and then after that all I see was a dolled up version, and seriously, too much seducing. But I did love how she said... "Hal, is that you? Oh my god Hal. Do you think just because I can't see you cheek bones, I wouldn't recognize you..." Thank you! The whole, keeping secrets with best friend and potential girl friend is so over rated. Finally someone not as stupid as Louis Lane.
The CG is of course was fantastic, I like how Reynolds delivered and acted out his lines. I like how they portrayed the fear into the villain Parallax. It was both fun and entertaining.
