    Not gonna lie, I'm honestly shocked that Ryan Reynolds didn't jump on this one.
    I mean normally he would go for it in an instant. He agreed to guest star on Honest Trailers twice, Cinema SIns as well I wonder if NC asked him.

    That movie was honestly the biggest disappointment for me in the DC movies. I hate most of the others, but this made a mockery of one of my favorite and most popular characters in comic book history. And, the most unfortunate thing is that Ryan Reynolds is THE PERFECT actor to play Hal Jordan with his cocky, wisecracking attitude. But because of awful overuse of cgi, character design, and lazy effects, not to mention the lazy writing and boring characters, this film was one of the biggest disappointments Iโ€™ve ever had in a movie

    Is it weird that I actually enjoy & like this flick? I mean yeah it had its problems, but some of the standouts like Sinestro, Ryan Reynolds & the fact that we got a D.C. superhero film that wasn't Batman really made smile. I am still holding out for a great Green Lantern adaptation.
    Also anyone else think they played the Paralax card too soon? Like it should have been shown in a sequel?

    I sometimes wonder if this movie was made in the late 90's was scheduled to be released in the early 2000's but the guy writing everything down heard something wrong and wrote that it should be released in 2011 instead of 2001.

    Miss Mangas 3 months ago

    The movie isn't that bad to me, the backgrounds are nice and Ryan's performance too. The problem is the story and villain, they are stupid and uninterresting. Oh and the F.R.I (Force romantic interrest) as Erod will put it is lame and useless. Heck Mary Jane from Spider man is prettier and better than her.

    Yeah i agree that the suit looks ugly! If it wasn't Cg, it would look better in my opinion.

    Parallax sounds like the name of a medicine, i can't take it seriously X) He would make a great duo with Profeon from Dungeon and Dragons.

    5:57 Ladies and getlemen, meet the director of Thor: Ragnarok and the voice of Korg in the same movie
    6:50 Hal's father has evidently never heard of an ejection seat (See Martin-Baker Fan Club)
    7:08 Hal did his job to the letter. See if a fighter plane COULD actually shoot down the drones. If he could, in any manner that a human pilot could possibly think of INCLUDING unconventional way then the drones needed upgrades to counter them. If not then the drones are ready to sell to the military
    It isn't his job to throw the fight just to show the drones were ready when they weren't.
    8:09 That's the same line he and his father said right before dad died.
    10:52 Why did they let him keep his "underwear"? I put underwear in quotes because I've truely never seen underwear fit exactly like this. It looks more like a white "black bar" that censors use in movies to hide actors naughty bits.
    11:26 THIS is the same guy who played Deadpool twice Or should I say three times) just five years later successfully?
    12:08 because none of them need to keep their identities secret of Oa
    12:26 For just one partial training session in which he has to no how to do everything perfectly BEFORE the first training session or get kicked out. Jeez, in what other profession do you need to know everything flawlessly BEFORE your first day on the job?
    14:26 What exactly is the purpose of this "intermission"?
    8:55 and 14:46 Abin Sur was buried at the crash site so they should know somebody found the wreck and possibly removed evidence first, right? Why didn't Amanda Waller try to track Hal down and get any evidence he had? What kind of Black Ops science experiment is this?
    The fact that Sur was naked and in a grave raised ZERO red flags with her? Nor that a new superhero sprang up just 2 days later didn't set off any alarms with her?
    14:55 A student comes in VERY late for class and he doesn't even acknowledge it at all?
    16:09 Dewers? I'd think he would ne a Jim Beam man myself.
    16:38 What happened to the helicopter's tail and rotor blades? Did it kill someone? Nobody cares what happened to it after it broke off
    17:19 And already was (KIND OF) 2 years before
    17:29 Whatever happened to having to say the oath whenever you had to recharge it?
    20:04 Doesn't this constitute stalking?
    20:18 NOBODY notices a giant space cloud of faces approaching Earth/New Orleans?
    21:31 You know, she married him right after this, right?
    21:38 MAN, they sure thought they were going to get a sequel, didn't they? Warner Brothers REALLY does make a lot of shitty superhero movies. Wonder Woman was the exception to this rule.
