The Green Lantern Corps is a federation assigned to police the 3,600 sectors in the universe, overseen by an ancient race of immortals called the Guardians, who reside on the planet Oa. Most Lanterns are aliens, but of the six Earthbound members in DC Comics’ history (Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Raynor and Jade), Hal is arguably the most popular.
Action Adventure - This is an extremely effects-heavy science fiction superhero adventure that is a starring showcase for Ryan Reynolds, who gives the film some touches of humor. Some action scenes may be too intense for young children, and some strong language could be of concern to parents.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 74 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:Over half loved it with most of the rest enjoying it very much. A few were disappointed.
TEENS:Not many teens were willing to fill out our questionnaire but those that did all enjoyed "Green Lantern" very much with most loving it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from both the males and females! Nearly all loved it.
ADULTS:The male reviews are very good but not quite great. About half loved "Green Lantern," but most of the rest rated it above average and average. These aren't bad reviews, since the moviegoers did like the movie, but they aren't real high reviews. The female reviews are very mixed. About a third loved it and another quarter enjoyed it very much but the rest only rated it as average, which is a bit disappointing.

existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the
Green Lantern Corps. Warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green
Lantern wears a ring that grants him the ability to create anything his mind can
imagine. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance
of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of
their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds).
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect
for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But
Hal's humanity is one weapon no member of the Corps has ever had, and if—with
willpower, determination and the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood
sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively)—Hal can quickly master his new powers and
find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to
defeating Parallax…he will save the Earth and all of mankind from certain
