Ryan Reynolds is Hal Jordan, aka DC Comics' superhero Green Lantern. Directed by NZer Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and co-starring Taika Waititi and Temuera Morrison. Screening in digital 3D.

The Green Lantern Corps are protectors of peace and justice in the big wide universe - a small but powerful force that has existed for centuries, a brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order. Each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But a new enemy has arrived: the Parallax. The Corps' fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal. Blake Lively (The Town, Gossip Girl) plays Hal's childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris. 

The Green Lantern first appeared in All-American Comics, in 1940.

An attempt to infuse an earnest piece of comicbook lore with an irreverent, tongue-in-cheek sensibility yields decidedly mixed results in Green Lantern.

I don't think The Green Lantern has enough to really stand out in the superhero crowd; it lacks the grittiness of a Batman, the everyman appeal of a Superman and the fun offered up by this year's Thor.

In a summer stuffed with superheroes, this underwhelming offering will likely leave you jaded. How it could have used some of Thor’s charm and The Green Hornet’s chutzpah.

So it turns out, it's a film that might rack up a few Lightyears but it's without quite enough Buzz.

Serves up all the requisite elements with enough self-deprecating humor to suggest it doesn't take itself too seriously.

Martin Campbell made Zorro and Bond work as contemporary heroes, but doesn’t quite have the feel for poor old Hal Jordan. Green Lantern is dazzling in pieces, but we’ve seen too many sharper versions of the superhero origin story in the last few years. It’s not Jonah Hex, but the battery runs low too quickly.
