Plot Summary
In a universe as vast as
it is mysterious, a small but 
powerful force has existed
for centuries. Protectors
of peace and justice, they
are called the Green
Lantern Corps. A brother-
hood of warriors sworn to
keep intergalactic order,
each Green Lantern wears
a ring that grants him super-
powers. But when a new
enemy called Parallax
threatens to destroy the
balance of power in the
universe, their fate and the
fate of Earth lie in the hands
of their newest recruit, the
first human ever selected.
Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky
test pilot, but the Green
Lanterns have little respect
for humans, who have
never harnessed the infinite
powers of the ring before.
But Hal is clearly the missing
piece to the puzzle, and
along with his determination
and willpower, he has one
thing no member of the
Corps has ever had: humanity
With the encouragement of
fellow pilot and childhood
sweetheart Carol Ferris, if
Hal can quickly master his
new powers and find the
courage to overcome his
fears, he may prove to be
not only the key to defeating
Parallax... he will become
the greatest Green Lantern
of all.

GREEN LANTERN is a superhero picture which retells the story based on the original DC comic series. This movie was loaded with comedy and action sequences complimented with the talented acting of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, the impressive direction of Martin Campbell as well as the interesting computer generated visuals. 

Well, it's rather a good movie, it is left suggesting a possibility for a second instalment.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
