Blinded By ‘Green Lantern’s’ Light

Some reviewers, such as Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers, seem to think that “Green Lantern” is the “Heaven’s Gate” of superhero films.  Rottentomatoes.com seems to agree, which is probably why it currently has a 25% approval rating.

That being said when I checked Rottentomatoes yesterday it had a %20, so perhaps there’s room for improvement in that area.

As I mentioned in my prior post, what appears to be turning off many critics–other than the dodgy CGI–is the writing.  That’s a fatal blow for a movie of this nature because the character is already somewhat silly, and weak writing is only going to make that only more obvious.

I am going to catch it this afternoon, and post a review tomorrow.
