WE'VE NEVER BEEN BIG FANS of SUPER-HERO MOVIES in GENERAL (THOUGH the FIRST TWO LATE 70s SUPERMAN MOVIES and the 2008/INITIAL IRON MAN FILM WERE PRETTY COOL), BUT WE WERE KINDA HOPING GREEN LANTERN WOULD GO AGAINST the GRAIN and ACTUALLY BE ENTERTAINING...

THEN WE SAW IT. 

IN a YEAR TOP-HEAVY with DISAPPOINTING SUPERHERO and "TENT-POLE" MOVIES, SADLY, LANTERN IS JUST ANOTHER MISFIRE. CASTING the OFTEN LIKABLE RYAN REYNOLDS in the TITLE ROLE GAVE the FILM SOME PROMISE, but the CGI FX and CREATURES ARE MOSTLY SUB-PAR. AND IT'S NOT LIKE LANTERN RANKED UP THERE with SUPERMAN, BATMAN or SPIDER MAN in TERMS of NAME RECOGNITION (OR BOX OFFICE POTENTIAL). WITH THE L.A. TIMES SAYING the FILM's PRODUCTION BUDGET WAS in the $200 MILLION RANGE, and ITS TOTAL BOX OFFICE BEING ABOUT HALF THAT (LINK), IT's HIGHLY UNLIKELY THIS WILL BECOME a FRANCHISE (WHICH WOULD BE BAD NEWS ONLY for OUR VOTING MEMBERS, WHO ARE ALWAZE on the LOOKOUT for WORST REMAKE/SEQUEL CONTENDERS). 

TOO BAD, 'CAUSE with the RIGHT BALANCE of SELF-DEPRECATING HUMOR and KILLER SPECIAL FX, LANTERN COULD HAVE MADE MULTIPLE RETURNS to the SCREEN.  AS IT IS, IT's LIKELIER to LEAVE MOVIE FANS DEMANDING the RETURN of THEIR MOVIE TICKET FEE and/or DVD PRICE...
