'Abduction,' 'Beastly,' 'New Year's Eve' and...?
3. "Green Lantern"
"in Brightest Day, In Blackest Night, Ryan Reynolds career is not alright, With this and the "Change-Up" both a blight, it's crazy they couldn't get 'Green Lantern' right!" The scary thing is that the marketing for the film understood the movie more than the actual movie did, and for a little while, it looked like Warner had pulled off a "Star Wars" with superheroes. Instead, the movie plays like someone really wanted to find a way to deliver all the thrills and charms of "Superman III" or "Batman Forever." Garish, with a terrible villain and an incomprehensible climax, there's no excuse for anyone making a superhero movie this bad at this point.
