Hal Jordan, flight jockey test pilot, arrogant ladies man and general all round not hero (this seems to be a bit of a recurring trend with Ryan’s characters). When he sacrifices his plane in a test exercise, and buggers up most things in his life, he finds himself being chosen by the lantern to be the newest member of the Green Lantern Core.
As Hal begins his training in what it means to be a Green Lantern, and how to use his will to the best design, he finds that the earth is coming under attack by an entity of both exceptional power and the Guardians own creation. A being that once upon a time was the very epitome of the guardians, until he sought to master the power of fear, and became Paralax.
As the Guardians continue to lose their battles against Paralax, and only feeding him more souls and increasing his power, Hal must make a choice when it’s discovered that Paralax is being drawn to earth by something unknown.
Run, and maybe survive, or, fight and maybe die to save the woman he’s fallen fall, and the planet that is his home.
This matchup of Ryan and Blake bring two very highly respected and regarded players to the screen in this semi-hit. These two have a great chemistry off set and on the screen it shows. They are the sole redeeming piece of this movie.
Not the best DC adaption (but to be fair there aren’t all that many good ones to choose from), but it’s a long way from the worst of them, and there are so many of those in the DC universe.
