Green Lantern. The Movie
“You must learn to focus your will and create what you see in your mind.”
The trailer and the super green hero character have made me to believe that Green Lantern it’s a low quality movie, predictable and targeted at 10 years old kids. But I was wrong: in my right there was a 10 years old kid which has fallen asleep.
The story was originally enough and Ryan Reynolds, The Super Hero, went well in this role, succeeding to give credibility to the super hero regardless many humoristic scenes.
The 3D effects didn’t had any WOW effects, but it were much better than those of Pirates of the Caribbean for example. What’s more important is that 3D didn’t seized the characters or the story, which sometimes is better to be this way.
If you want a relaxing evening, Green Lantern can be a good movie choice. After I got out the cinema, I realized that GL somehow resembles the animation movie Megamind.
It seems that the sequel, Green Lantern 2, will arrive in 2013 in a “Darker and Grainier” version.
Surprising, with the movie you will also get some interesting words on which you usually came across in Self-Development books:
“No matter how bad things get, something good is out there, just over the horizon…”
“The ring did not see that you are fearless. It saw that you have the ability to over come fear.”
“You know… there is a saying in my planet, we say ‘I am only human’. We say it because we are vulnerable, we say it because we are afraid, but that does not mean that we are weak.”
“I feel your fear growing. You will be dead soon…”
“To master the ring you must learn to focus your will and create what you see in your mind. The ring’s limits are only what you can imagine.”
“In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight! Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my power. Green Lantern’s light!”
“You can’t foresee all the consequences of your actions — But that’s no excuse to do nothing”
“I could always use my ring to create the money, or to make myself a plane. But I need to show that my will-power works on more than just the ring. That I can use it to reshape my world, to make the life I want.”
