Just got back an hour ago. This is very much a GL fan's movie. I loved it.

My only issue with this movie was that the soundtrack lacked a really strong melodic theme for Hal. A lot of the score was really generic orchestral and rock stuff; effective but ultimately forgettable. Maybe it's because I'm a composer myself, but I've always felt that a superhero should have a really strong, recognizable musical theme. Superman and Batman have theirs (several actually, if you count Shirley Walker's fantastic work on the animated series), and I was really disappointed that the Green Lantern didn't get his.

Come on DC! You had a fun script, a great cast, and some awesome special effects. Now let's get an awesome soundtrack.
