|In brightest day, in blackest night, no bad review shall escape my sight.|
Green Lantern opens today, and the reviews are pretty terrible. Yet it stars the incomparable Ryan Reynolds, who could appear in a car insurance commercial and still imbue it with wry humor and rakish charm.
Reynolds is an immensely likeable actor, particularly when he's in funny, sarcastic action mode. I'm curious whether the power of Ryan can overcome the general stench of the movie itself. I haven't decided yet whether to go see Green Lantern, but the mere fact that I've read the reviews and am still thinking about it should tell you all you need to know about the power of Ryan.
|You, sirs, are giant, metal disappointments.|
So will you catch Green Lantern in theaters this weekend? And are there other actors or franchises whose overall appeal will get you into a theater even when the movie itself is lousy?
