    Deadpool fix's this movie by killing Ryan Reynolds

    it's because of this movie that the green lantern animated series got cancelled
    And I hate them for it.

    im still learning about the D.C and MCU I dont know to deep like other people who are hardcore fans of Green Lanter is my favorite charcter in the D,C he can fly and make different weapons,..he can make a bubble and put some one inside and move them away....I dont know who are the most powerfull superheros are and its really a endless debate. bt I think Green Lanter can hang with the best..not only weapons bt he can make shields or some wall......the movie is really a disspointment, bt there was potential in it, and if done correctly. he could of been a really awesome movie. and I hope D.C doesnst give it up. look what happen to batman....Batman and Robin, when I watch when I was kid like around 8 years old. I thought it was awesome bt now older, man that movie was with out that movie being very horrible. they wouldnt reboot the Frnachise. and they reboot the franchise 3 why not Green Lanter, aint he one of the oringal of the justice League members....

    "Deadpool" goes to inappropriately touch Hyper Fangirl when Devil Boner appears and beats the living hell out of him.
    "This is what you get when you touch my fiancee!"
    That is true.

    Huh. Somehow I completely missed this review. I have been watching for seven years how did I skip this.

    12:03 you do know there's this incredible technique I'm not sure any human can understand, it's called taking something off when it isn't needed.

    Perhaps a reason people hate the colour scheme so much is that it's essentially the opposite of the almost standard blue/teal look, not only does blue look desaturated but red is also emphasised, giving a warm look to many scenes, and the green's a rich primary colour, not the sickly pale version of the modern red/green colour-blind standard. .

    Not surprised that the director of Thor 4 and the New Zealand airline PSA would be in this film, he’s kind of a plague when it comes to anything on screen

    I'm Guessing Parallax is the reason why this Shit Movie exists?

    Pésimos subtítulos en español, el desgraciado que lo haya hecho como castigo se merece un día entero viendo Fant4stic.

    Hold on. U gonna criticize the fact that she should have known he was Hal right away? Please tell me u are not ok with superman throwing on some glasses and fooling the world that he is Clark Kent.

  • ab dude

    Not sure why this movie gets so much hate. I found it entertaining. Not sure what people were expecting. It's a movie about a dude flying around space and saving the world. No it didnt compare to the comic but movie does

    OK, no one's gonna react to this but rewatching the review in 2019 and I gotta say the Superman/Lois flight seen makes no sense. It woulda been impossible for her to be held by him the way she did. Not according to physics...

    Say what you want about the movie. But you gotta admit the oath scene was really freaking cool.

    Only good thing about this abomination was Mark Strong. Shame we’ll never get to see him play the villain version of Sinestro.

    Wait, wait, wait...there's a version of Nothing But Trouble that makes sense?!? Someone else actually knows what that movie is?
    I mean yeah, Green Lantern sucked and ruined our childhood or whatever...but seriously, where can I find that director's cut?

    so that's how devil boner proposed to super hyper fan girl, that was funny and sweet and yeah the green lantern move was awful.

  • Halford Cincuentaysiete

    Fun fact: This Green Lantern movie was supposed to kickstart the DCEU. I wish I was making that up

  • Shadowfaux

    Okay the Deadpool stuff really doesn't need to be there, it's not close to funny and it ruins the flow the video

  • vizthex

    It's sad but also relieving that the Justice League cartoon Green Lantern is way better than this.

  • Soup Pigeon

    I know this isn’t the movie’s fault (because they had to follow the comic) but wouldn’t it have been more interesting if the person chosen was an artist or a writer? Someone imaginative and creative, so that when this person is fighting the things they make are interesting and fun - and not just tanks and shit? Like the Green Lantern can create anything his imagination can conceive ; and yet he never makes anything innovative or creative to fight with...
    (at least in the movie I can’t attest to the comics)

  • William McFarland

    I don't like these reviews where he beats a dead horse. I much prefer when he either defends an overly-hated movie, or critiques an overrated movie, or praises an underrated movie. Don't get me wrong, the movie isn't good. It's not even underrated. But this movie (and movies like this) are disliked because they're bad, but "hated on" because its "cool" to be angry. Annoying.

    • ab dude
      ab dude 28 days ago

      Agreed. Its people say they hate this movie cuz they figure it's cool to hate it.

    I actually kinda have a soft spot for this movie it has it's problems but come there are a lot worst superhero movies than this😒😒

  • Idek_anymore The42nd

    Anyone else notice that at 5:12 Sinestro looks like he’s wearing a yellow lantern ring? Coincidence or not?

    They don't wear masks because they don't see any need for secret identities.

  • Ethan Kellerman

    I thought it looked good. Also, why is Parallax a fallen Malthusian instead of an insect that was the first ever being to feel fear so that he becomes the embodiment of the emotion?

    Green Lantern is my favorite hero of all time. He's got an imaginative concept and some of the most colorful and entertaining comic book stories I've ever read.
    It's a shame this film captured absolutely none of that.

      Abigail Zimmerman What about the scene where Hal says the oath for the first time? I gotta admit, it was pretty badass.

    Quick question: if the Ring can literally do anything, can it make something that isn’t green?
    I was put in front of a firing squad that day!

    12:25 Pretty much proves that you don't know source material, because that was pretty much a 1 to 1 explanation on how Green Lantern Rings work in the comics. Amense will-power and an immaginitve mind. That's literally it. That's all that's required. And FYI, Green Lanterns were first.

    Is it just me or does that sound like the 501st narrator from the first Star Wars battle front 2 (2005) the alien from the beginning that gives Ryan Reynolds his power

    When Tamara shows up I can see the 'I will not breathe' from Monkeybone. Guess he forgot to erase it
