Despite the lukewarm reviews of Green Lantern, I enjoyed this version starring Ryan Reynolds. The key to this movie is Reynolds. He plays hot-shot test pilot, Hal Jordan, to perfection. Yes, Hal Jordan is cocky, but he also has a Deep Secret. When an alien crash-lands on Earth, Hal Jordan is chosen by the Green Lantern ring to become part of the Galactic police force with incredible powers. Those of you who’ve grown up reading the Green Lantern comics know the familiar story. Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) plays Hal Jordan’s boss and love interest. Yes, there is creditable on-screen chemistry between Reynolds and Lively. Reportedly, $300 million was spent on this CGI extravaganza. When the movie ended, the crowd cheered. A sequel is already in the works. GRADE: B+

    Of course the crowd cheered. It’s the opening weekend audience of fanboys.

    Let’s see how it does next week.
