All exposition and cliche, and no real sense of excitement. Three thousand Lanterns DO NOTHING. Sinestro does NOTHING. Two-thirds in, I was thinking about a book I had bought before going into the theater. Sad.
(And Tim Robbins and Angela Bassett [!] get treated like cannon fodder! These are GREAT film actors, and THIS is what they have to do for checks in 2011?!? DAY-AM! :))
P.S. BUT the sequel should be GREAT! I was glad to know to stay half-way through the credits to see what I had really hoped to see!
