Green Lantern (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) Blu Ray|
In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight! Let those who worship evils might beware my power... Green Lantern's light!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 brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. 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 (Blake Lively), 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.from£9.99 | RRP:

I always liked The Green Lantern, for his adventures took place in a highly imaginative and free flowing universe where humans were connected to the wider spectrum of existence. And the idea of an inter-galactic federation of alien races (i.e. 'The Green Lantern Corps') seemed like a perfectly natural way to defend the galaxies against a variety of aggressors. Director Martin Campbell ('Goldeneye', 'Casino Royale') does well to balance the comic's 50s' style mythology with a character driven origin story that neither saves itself for a sequel nor drags on to the point of tedium. We get through the whole "The Guardians of the Universe have divided the universe into 3,600 Space Sectors with one Green Lantern assigned to protect each sector..." hokum in the prologue, rush though the traumatic childhood moment and onto wisecracking, troubled test-pilot Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) who's chosen to become The Green Lantern protector of Earth. Whisked off in a ball of light by legendary Green Lantern Abin Sur (Temuera Morrison); he's transported to their home world, promptly put through his paces by Lanterns Sinestro (Mark Strong) and Kilowog (Michael Clarke Duncan) before being told of an approaching threat known as The Parallax.
Adapting the comic to film was always going to be awkward, especially depicting all the worlds and their inhabitants whilst keeping the story focused on our hero. But the filmmakers manage to cram a lot, perhaps too much, into the film's 120 minute running time. Ryan Reynolds makes a convincing superhero, Mark Strong, not playing a villain for once, was good as Sinestro and Blake Lively doesn't embarrass herself as Carol Ferris but doesn't have the stature or malice to pull off her alter ego; Star Sapphire, if indeed we get a sequel. The final battle is somewhat of an anti-climax since it is, essentially, The Green Lantern fighting a yellow plume of smoke but there's still enough going on to keep an audience entertained. Good movie, could have been better, worth watching once.
