Kind of Crappy

This movie certainly isn't as bad as some of DC's worst, but it's definitely not as good as its best. It was trying to be epic and everything, and it did okay but it was generally just cheesy. The violence wasn't terrible, and the sexuality was WAY below the Batman vs Superman stuff. The swearing wasn't super bad either. It was kind of funny in some moments, but I really didn't feel anything when I watched this. Definitely just a one-time-watch.

A great massage with not as great language. Parents should defiantly tell younger kids what words to repeat and what words they shouldn't. some implied sex as well .

O.K Superhero Movie, is not great but not bad.

Parents need to know that this movie stars superhero, except it does not feel like a superhero movie. The movie is very violent especially the main villain Parallax. The other villain Hector Hammond could also scare kids. Some scary flashbacks. Swearing include "s--t", "a-hole", "son of a bitch", and a middle finger gesture. Good Movie, but not a really good superhero one.

DC movie has good action.

Green lantern had a few scary monsters but nothing to scary. It has some scary moments with a scary looking guy. also- has strong language in the first of the movie- 2 g*d d**n, 2 a*s, 3 h*ll, 1 bulls**t, 2 s.o.b, ALL USED IN THE FIRST 20 MINUTES! my rating is PG13- for some language.

It Was Fine Movie

It was only ok. Nothing stood out about it. It could have been done better. There's some violence in it but, nothing to bad. Hope you enjoy!

Not special

This movie isn't bad. It just doesn't add anything new to the characters. The violence is not too bad. Watch if you like superheros. Hope you enjoy!

Great movie, but too violent for younger kids

I think this is a great movie. But it is still best for older kids. There is plenty of fantasy/cartoon violence, but little blood and nothing graphic. But just like most superhero movies, this one is violent enough for it's PG-13 rating and Parallax looks very monstrous. He could frighten younger kids. There is some suggestive material, but nothing explicit. Fairly infrequent use of mild to moderate language includes 4 or 5 uses of the H word, 1 use of the D word, maybe 2 or 3 uses of the GD word, 1 use of the middle finger, 2 uses of "son of a b---h," probably 5 uses of "oh my God," one incomplete use of it, 1 use of "God," 1 or 2 uses of "Jesus," and 1 use of "bast--d." There's also one use of "stupid." There's also some alcohol use. But there's also a good message about courage. Anyway, this is a great movie that I would highly recommend for superhero fans.

Good movie by DC.

Good movie. This movie had action and a bit of humor. Acting was average. The CGI was cheesy. No morals or positive role models. Average superhero movie violence. A bit of sexual content, nothing too strong for a mature kid. A bit of swearing including sh*t. Overall, typical superhero movie.

beware my power... GREEN LANTERNS LIGHT

green lantern is a very good movie about a test pilot being recruited for an alien army to protect the universe.This movie has several scary images and villains and a dramatic memory of a characters death. This movie has several romance scenes and a character sleeps with a girl (nothing happens )

Entertaining, albeit superficial, second attempt for DC to prove itself worthy to run against Marvel, nothing memorable, kind of disapointing, however perfect choice for younger fans of DC comics.

"Green Lantern" is DC's second attempt to cram another super-hero movie in preparation for the "Justice League" film scheduled for release in 2015, that's just as good as the "Dark Night" trilogy, and doesn't fail to entertain child and successfully bore adults. This movies doesn't do either, although it fails to top success of the "Dark Night" trilogy. Ryan Reynolds was a excellent choice to be cast as the Green Lantern, and Peter Sargaard played a predictable, and unlikeable villain, and Blake Lively plays a cranky, unrepeatable, and girlfriend that no man would want as their spouse. Besides the personality of the characters themselves, the acting and special effects where substandard, resulting in a movie that is only worth one watch. I had high hopes for "Green Lantern" and was let down to see Martin Campbell waste the potential of an awesome superhero movie, and he neglected the generally negative critical reception, by saying that although a trade account reaffirmed that Warner Bros., was "somewhat disappointed" opening-week box office of the film, they still intended to move forward with a sequel. In 2010 Martin Campbell announced the possibility of a "Green Lantern" trilogy. I imagine what a second film would be like (so does everybody else who stayed until the end of the credits), and it was pretty obvious as Sinestro's name originated from the word "sinister" and he looks a lot like what I'd imagine the devil looking like, however I couldn't comprehend a third "Green lantern" flick. The movie is humorous at times and intense during others; it superficially addresses heavy topics like death and child trauma. This big-screen take on the classic comic book superhero offers lots of fast-paced, combat filled action, much of it cartoonish in nature. it's almost disheartening that the rioters chose to include some moderately strong language to convey an emotion/message, including bulls**t, S.O.B., and a**hole, totally unnecessary, better to buy it on DVD is you have little ones who are interested in the film so you have the opportunity to mute it. Expect some drinking of beer and hard liquor at a bar, but nobody gets drunk. Social drinking at parties. It's implied that Hal had a one-night stand (he's shown in his underwear. Some kissing and flirting, a couple is shown briefly under the covers on a bed, brief cleavage shot. The main monster, the Parallax, is scary, and could definitely frighten young children. The movies is filled with loud explosions and fight scenes, mostly involving a lot of punching and throwing (albeit with minimal blood/gore). The violence is pretty tame compared to other superhero movies. "Green Lantern is a perfect flick for older tweens and teens (probably not adults, however they may have to see it with their children and it's really not that terrible) who are only looking to be entertained and are not seeking lots of depth, profundity or moral insight.

Green Lantern bombs

Completely bad written movie. Did not please me. Maybe it will be better if they remake it and have a different GL. The talk right now is John Stewart who is actually WAY better in my opinion.

Could've been better

This is a high-budget film with impressive visuals. The problem is that the film should have flowed much more easily. I was confused about what was happening and I kind of got bored of the introduction to Oa and whatever. However the characters are likeable, and there are some very good lessons learnt, something very admirable considering most movies aren't as such. Even so this film wasn't intense enough, and kinda boring. Perhaps young kids will like this film.

TERRIBLE

The movie is terrible. There are some good messages but most everything in this movie is cheesy. but one human is creppy for younger kids after he gets this stuff in him.
