Mini Movie Review – Green Lantern

 

Hey, hey, hey! Listen all, I know it’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve posted, but truth be told we had an awesome game review line up and ready to post but let’s just say whining new technology you should always read the instructions first. Worry not, the re-edit of the review is nearly done and will be out soon (I promise). For now Backlash, Blu and myself went to go see the new Green Lantern movie and have come back with the definitive results. Well for those who don’t know, the movie is mired in controversy within critics and the audience. Some say the movie was terrible while other thought it was good, and numbers are disappointing at the box office. So we’ve taken upon ourselves to settle the debate once and for all using the fewest words possible:

 

Boss Bronze: I thought it was alright. The story was coherent, the characters were stable (although a little bland), the special effects were expected, all and all a general movie to go and see. Maybe that’s the problem, there’s nothing in this movie that really stands out (maybe the bad guy fight but). All the superhero movies released recently had something that made it stand out from the pact – Green Lantern had no quality. Again I enjoy the movie, didn’t regret seeing it, but will I see it again or buy the DVD of it in the future, probably not.

 

True Backlash: Backlash agrees with me for the most part. However he thinks the Green Lantern corp. needed more focus, the Hal Jordan’s family and ‘best friend tom’ need less focus, and the film was grainy(although that might have been the movie theater’s fault).

 

 

Blu: Unfortunately this movie did nothing but confuses her plot wise, and was generally found the movie underwhelming as a whole (like many people). However despite this she still said she had a good time.

 

 

 

Consensus:

This is one ‘middle of the road’ movie if I ever saw one, not terrible but nothing to write home to mama about either. My advice, see it just so you can put in your own two cents about it at your website of choice (did someone say Video Game Armada?).
