From Everybody:

A lot better than I had expected. I did not think Ryan Renolds would be believable as a superhero, but it worked! Oh, and I loved that his ex wasn't fooled, just because he was wearing a costume! Brilliant!

Not the best superhero movie

Fans of this superhero did not like the movie. They did not like the actor or the plot.
I quite enjoyed it.
There are things that could have been better and more impactful (I don't think that's a word), but it was fun to watch, and I think the story was a good journey for this type of hero.
The climax scene was awesome to watch and very visual. I did not notice any VFX mess-ups on the main character's mask, but honestly, I was watching the movie and not paying attention to little things like that.

Good

I never really thought Ryan Reynolds was anything special, but wth this (and especially The Proposal) he has won me over. This is an fairly good superhero movie, with great laughs when the ordinarl Hal has to learn to be the green lantern

"No Evil Shall Escape My Sight"

Plot:

Millions of years ago, beings called the Guardians of the Universe used the green essence of willpower to create an intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps. They split the universe into 3600 sectors, with one Green Lantern per sector. One such Green Lantern, Abin Sur of Sector 2814, defeated the being Parallax and imprisoned him in the Lost Sector on the ruined planet Ryut. In the present day, Parallax escapes from his prison and nearly kills Abin Sur, who escapes and crash-lands on Earth and commands his ring to find a worthy successor.

A cocky Ferris Aircraft test pilot, Hal Jordan, is chosen by the ring and transported to the crash site, where Abin Sur appoints him a Green Lantern, by telling him to take the lantern and speak the oath. At home he says the oath and is later whisked away to the Green Lantern Corps home planet of Oa, where he meets and trains with Tomar-Re and Kilowog and Corps leader Sinestro, who believes he is unfit and fearful. Jordan quits and returns to Earth, keeping the power ring and lantern.

Meanwhile, after being summoned by his father Senator Robert Hammond to a secret government facility, scientist Hector Hammond performs an autopsy on Abin Sur's body. A piece of Parallax inside the corpse enters Hammond giving him telepathic and telekinetic powers at the cost of his sanity. After discovering that he was only chosen due to his father's influence, Hammond attempts to kill his father by telekinetically sabotaging his helicopter at a party. Jordan saves the senator and the party guests, including his childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris. Shortly afterward, Hammond successfully kills his father by burning him alive before Jordan learns of Parallax coming to Earth.

Back on Oa, the Guardians tell Sinestro that Parallax was once one of their own until he desired to control the yellow essence of fear, only to become the embodiment of fear itself. Believing the only means to fight fear is by fear itself, Sinestro requests that the Guardians forge a ring of the same yellow power, preparing to concede Earth's destruction to Parallax in order to protect Oa. However, Jordan appears and reveals that fear will turn the users evil if its power is used, so the Guardians reject Sinestro's plan and Hal leaves to go save Earth.

Upon returning to Earth, Jordan saves Ferris from Hammond. Parallax arrives, consumes Hector's life force, and then wreaks havoc on Coast City. With new-found strength, Jordan lures Parallax away from Earth and toward the Sun, destroying Parallax. He loses consciousness after the battle and falls toward the sun, but is saved by Sinestro, Kilowog, and Tomar-Re. Later the entire Green Lantern Corps congratulates him for his bravery. Sinestro tells Jordan he now bears the responsibility of protecting his sector as a Green Lantern.

In the epilogue, Sinestro steals the yellow ring and places it on his finger, causing his green suit and eyes to change to yellow.
