    You know what’s sad is that GL would’ve been an awesome franchise fer the folks at WB….alas only if they had penned it the right way. How about you and I sit down and pen one down for consideration?

    The mythology is nonsensical and the plot takes forever to get going. But once it does, the movie takes advantage of a strong cast and a director who knows what he’s doing. Good Review!

      Unlike yourself, I actually did know a lot about GL before the film, but tried to be objective about it and review it as a stand alone feature film. The saving grace would’ve been Reynolds in a role, that should be like his dozens of roles prior to it, but he let me down. Most of the establishing mythology scenes seemed more to set up for a possible sequel than have any impact in this film… as proven by the after credits scene.

      Thanks. Your too…
