Back in the 1960s, there was an episode of Doctor Who that created in an attempt to mix the sci-fi and Western genres together. It was a failure, but they took it to the air anyway. Over the decades, the writing of one of the best BBC sci-fi shows has gotten drastically better. The cross-genre theme works very well in books, as there have been many of these sold in the last few decades. There have also been attempts but low-budget studios to mix the genres together, but these movies tended to get very little press and they were forgotten and set on old VHS tapes in the rental section of C-stores and small video tape rental outlets, unless someone looking for something unusual wanted to take a chance on it. There have been a few successful, steampunk-based movies that use this forumlae, like Wild, Wild West. So here, we have another attempt to bring these together in a movie that uses a title with variation on a cliche’ phrase, and there the movie becomes a cliche’. While this movie has some big names in the cast, production, and direction, it seems the movie itself has no direction, and no logic to it.

DC Comics has always had a problem getting good films on screen. Usually they are way more corny then their comic book characters are but with Green Lantern the corn fits. Hal Jordan was always a nut case and the film carried that to the big screen well. Many might think that the character was just misrepresented but in every thing that I remember of Hal is that he was a jokester and not all that serious. They definitely picked the right actor to portray him in my opinion. Now I haven’t read the comics as faithful as other might have but the film seemed true to character and was worth the viewing of it. I even viewed it more then once and not just because I am writing about the film, I genuinely liked the film and how the characters were portrayed. Sure there are deviations but when is there not even from comic issue to comic issue. Just enjoy the film and then start reading the comic if you have not already done so. Green Lantern has always needed to come out of the shadow of the Dark Knight and Superman and this one let him do it.
