Review: Campbell Paints Shallow Portrait In 'Green Lantern'

June 18th, 2011 1:03am EDT
Green Lantern
When adapting a comic book character for the first time on the big screen, writers and directors often struggle with effectively recreating the hero's world. This is because condensing a collection of written works into a movie is a difficult task. The filmmakers usually need to take liberties with converting them, to maintain a reasonable running time.

Given the constraints, they must balance effectively explaining the character's back story and compelling viewers with an adventure in the present. Only the best super hero adaptations give equal attention to both though, while the rest ...

Helpful fact to know for those of you unfamiliar with the DC comic...Green is the color of will. Yellow is the color of fear. So...green is good...yellow, bad...very very bad.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Green Lantern,' 'Mr. Popper's Penguins,' & More

Green Lantern
I was impressed last week by the J.J. Abrams picture “Super 8,” which pays skillful homage to the craft of film’s executive producer on the project, Steven Spielberg. Abrams takes his own trademark intrigue and mashes it up with themes present in classic Spielberg stories like “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” and “Jaws,” to create a movie that is both visually impressive and possesses heart. For more of my thoughts, check out my review if you haven’t already.

Hitting the box office this week are the Ryan Reynolds comic book vehicle “Green Lantern,” the Jim Carrey comedy “Mr. Popper’s Pe...

"Green Lantern" star Ryan Reynolds has risen from comedy cutup to rom-com heartthrob to megabudget action star on the back of his everyman appeal — by just being a guy.

"The Hollywood a**hole is becoming a bit of a dinosaur every day, thank God," says Jason Bateman — Reynold's co-star in the upcoming "The Change-Up." "But it's still not the norm to be as decent as Ryan is. Decent without being a boob. He's the World's Sexiest Man and all that sh*t, but he's still a real guy, not a noodle."
