Blu-ray Review: GREEN LANTERN

Watching GREEN LANTERN on this Blu-ray Combo Pack  didn't make  too much of a difference from the theatrical experience. This movie just really didn't have a great story but the special effects are awesome.

Ryan Reynolds plays Hal Jordan who becomes the Green Lantern and has to earn the Green Lantern Corp's respect while he saves Earth from the devastating Parallax, that the entire Green Lantern Corp couldn't destroy together. This made no sense to me but it was visually fun to watch. Ryan Reynolds just seems like the same character pretty much in every movie he's in, doesn't he?

The best part of director Martin Campbell's movie on this Blu-ray is the awesome, crisp and clear visuals and loads of special effects throughout the movie, this definitely helps with this situation! Another plus is the strong supporting cast, especially Mark Strong as Sinestro, all of us knowing where he eventually ends up, you know evil and all that jive! I know another movie will be made and this is one part that I hope continues with the sequel, watching Sinestro fall into the darkness that the yellow ring possesses needs to continue.

Bottom line is this Green Lantern Blu-ray Combo Pack is for a younger audience, it just has a little too much cheese to it for the older audience. It gets a generous 3/5 because of all of the extras that it includes, especially the introduction of the Ultraviolet digital copy. Do I want a sequel to this mediocre movie? Yes, if it has a better story!  Buy It 10/14 on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with UltraViolet Digital Copy or Download to Own
