Summer's Golden Dozen, #12: 'Green Lantern'
In Theaters: June 17
OK, I have my doubts. Ryan Reynolds makes an amiable hunk accessory for Sandra Bullock (The Proposal), but play a superhero out of DC Comics? Don't care that RR was Deadpool in that X-Men spinoff, Wolverine. I'm still worried. The role of Hal Jordan, the fighter pilot who becomes the first human ever selected to join the Green Lantern Corps, has challenges. Still, I get a good vibe that Geoffrey Rush is doing the voice work for the computer-generated Tomar-Re, the bird-beaked Yoda for Hal. And director Martin Campbell kicked ass refreshing the James Bond franchise with Casino Royale. So maybe. What are your thoughts?
