GREEN LANTERN Gets Trashed by Critics!
Things aren’t happy in the Martin Campbell house tonight. And the always smiley Ryan Reynolds is likely trying on his frowny face. Because their comic book blockbuster Green Lantern is getting a critical lambasting. It has a 21% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“… eye candy, and not much more.” — EW
“… a highly unstable alloy of the serious, the goofy and the downright derivative” — Variety
“…it’s as bad as it gets — a dumb, pointless, ugly, moronic and incomprehensible jumble of botched effects, technical blunders, and cluttered chaos.” — Rex Reed
“Green Lantern fails to shine.” — U.S. Weekly
“It’s a frustrating, deeply flawed film rife with missed story opportunities and squandered potential.” — IGN
“What the [Green Lantern’s Power Ring] cannot do, alas, is create a good movie.” — Miami Herald
“.a pretty joyless comic book movie experience.” — MSN Movies
So most of the critics really aren’t digging it. Doesn’t mean you or I can’t. But it doesn’t bode well. Ah, well, not all superhero films can be hits.
