While most U.S. media get to see the film tonight, the first sixteen reviews (as of this posting) are out for “Green Lantern” on Rotten Tomatoes and the verdict is almost the polar opposite of “X-Men: First Class” the other week.
RT scores tend to go down as they accumulate more reviews and right now ‘Lantern’ sits a 25% positive T-Meter rank with an average rating of 4.5/10. That presently puts it about on par with the first “Tomb Raider” movie. More telling is the reviews themselves aren’t singling out one specific fault but a whole range of issues from the acting to the story to the direction.
As the film doesn’t hit Australia until August I won’t get to see it for another month at least so I won’t be personally reviewing it for the site.
