The Green Lantern
Ryan Reynolds makes one great, and totally gorgeous (and buff), superhero… as you can totally see, unless your blind.
(If you click on the picture it should take you to the trailer, but finish reading first! )
The insanely pretty Blake Lively makes a wonderful damsel in distress, and if your anything like me at all… within a second of her being on-screen (despite the brunette locks), your mind automatically jumps to the movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
Basically Green Lantern is about your average joe kinda guy, only his name is Hal, not Joe. Hal is chosen by the ring of a dying purple alien to become the next member of an elite force which battles evil all over the galaxy (Totally channeling the inner superhero geek nerd I never knew I had).
You need but one thing to be a green lantern, to be fearless. But, Hal is the first guy to enter the corps who is “only human”.
Of course what is a movie without a big-headed demented mad scientist bent on world domination, so one of those has to get thrown in for good measure. And this one has quite the obsession with Hal’s girl… (dun dun dun)
Hal, better known as The Green Lantern, must harness the forces of all that is green, courageous, and his own willpower to fight evil and save the world, and his girl of course.
*Props to May birthdays, (namely, me) emeralds apparently have the power to rule the world!*
This movie was really good. Some of the creatures (evil scientist… cough cough) were weird shaped and kinda grossed me out. It had some suspense and twists.
Overall, I think it’s a good representation for DC comics and superhero movies alike.
You should definitely go see it, just wouldn’t take your kids necessarily, some language, violence and scary creatures (even though some are the good guys) are all over this movie.
Great way to start out the summer I hope to call the “summer of midnight premieres”, because… I want to. So, there.
