CHUD Review: Green Lantern (2011)

2011 was a rough year for DC Comics, and their old buddy The Green Lantern wasn’t helping. Martin Campbell and Ryan Reynolds let a lot of people down with this cartoony and convoluted adaptation, especially those hoping The Green Lantern would be any good. Here’s a clip from my review:

The problem with Green Lantern isn’t the acting, script, effects, etc. It’s the amount of them. Campbell embellishes the Lantern’s every quirk with high gloss, making the film about as subtle as a punch in the face.

There’s also a part where Green Lantern turns a gala into a CGI Hotwheels course. It’s insane.

Enjoy the review!
