Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government, must find a cure for the monster he emerges whenever he loses his temper. However, Banner then must fight a soldier who unleashes himself as a threat stronger than he.
In a mysterious universe, an elite defense force of peace and justice have existed for centuries. Cocky test pilot Hal Jordan acquires superhuman powers when he is chosen by "the Ring", the willpower-fed source of power, of the Green Lantern Corps. Reluctantly at first, he takes on the challenges these other superheroes face. Putting his self-doubts aside, and spurred on by his sense of duty and love for his beautiful, intellectually equal, colleague, Carol Ferris, he is soon called to defend mankind from Parallax, a powerful, evil being who feeds on fear. He is the universe's last chance, as many Green Lanterns have been killed and the Corps is weakened. And he might just be the right Green Lantern for the job of keeping the world safe from harm. Based on the characters of DC Comics series "Green Lantern". Written by
Warner Bros. Pictures

In the test pilot scene, it is claimed that the F-35's service ceiling is 50,000 feet. Its real service ceiling is 60,000 feet. And exceeding the service ceiling doesn't cause an aircraft's engines to flame out like in the movie. But none of this matters, since if they were testing the air superiority capabilities of the drones, they should have been testing them against an air superiority fighter like the F-22, not a multi-role strike fighter like the F-35.

Decent flick. Not half as bad as some of the critics have been making it out.
A decent comic book adaptation of the DC comic book character Green Lantern.
It's certainly not as bad as some critics have made it out to be.
It's fun, the action sequences are flashy and exciting. The acting is all top notch and the humor is done really well.
Green Lantern is unpretentious, probably even one of the most unpretentious superhero movies ever made. It embraces its inherent goofiness and excludes much of the angst and over-seriousness that we seen in other comic book movies like Batman and Spiderman.
The after-credits scene is awesome. A real fan pleaser and hopefully they will make a sequel.
