'Green Lantern' is 'Comic Book Movie Hell'

Sci-fi super hero flick is a major dud

By |

Peter Travers is urging everyone to skip Green Lantern, the movie based on DC Comics' sci-fi super hero starring Ryan Reynolds. "It is awful, it is bad, it is comic book movie hell," says Travers. "Michael Bay in a couple weeks is going to have to strain himself hard to make Transformers 3 bad enough that it can beat the Green Lantern." Though most everything about the movie is a mess, Travers does approve of Peter Sarsgaard, who turns in the picture's only good performance as the mutated villain Hector Hammond.
