Not to be confused with The Green Hornet, released in the same year, which may have been rather awful, but this was much, much worse.
If you're unfamiliar with DC's Green Lantern comics, this film won't really help you out as far as origin stories are concerned, in fact, you may know even less. In a nutshell, the superhero isn't that super at all, gaining his powers from a magical ring from a distant alien planet.
Ryan Reynolds' performance is about as lousy as the CGI effects, which are overused throughout, and are more distracting than they are immersive.
