Green Lantern

As I mentioned the other day, I like me my DC Comics. And over the last five years or so, Green Lantern has been consistently awesome under the guidance of Geoff Johns.

So, as you can imagine, I’ve been looking forward to the film for a long time. Despite the bad reviews, I saw it last night, and am happy to report it was pretty gosh-darned cool. Loads of fun, and some great performances (yes, even from Ryan Reynolds).

For a full review, I’d point you over to Bleeding Cool where my friend Michael Moran has pretty much summed up how I feel. It’s a spoiler-free review, so feel free to dive on in.

Could the film have been better? Of course. I would have liked to have seen more of the brilliant Kilowog, and perhaps for the sequel (which is hinted at in the mid-credits sequence, which I won’t spoil here) it would be cool to have it as an ensemble piece, with a team of Green Lanterns going into battle.

The best bit for me, I must say, was a cameo appearance by my favourite Lantern of all, Bzzd. Blink and you’ll miss it, but it was the icing on the cake for me.
