QUICK TAKE:
Sci-fi/Action: A cocky Earth pilot must overcome his doubts and fears after he is chosen to become a member of the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps.
PLOT:
Hal Jordan (RYAN REYNOLDS) is a cocky, risk-taking pilot still haunted by memories of seeing his own pilot father (JON TENNEY) crash and explode when he was just a little boy. He grew up with Carol Ferris (BLAKE LIVELY), whose father Carl (JAY O. SANDERS) owns an aviation company that is angling for a government contract. Heading the approval process is Senator Hammond (TIM ROBBINS), whose scientist son Hector (PETER SARSGAARD) also grew up with Hal and Carol and has loved her from afar for years.

Across the stars, the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps. is doing battle with a rising threat, the cloud-like Parallax (voice of CLANCY BROWN), which has harnessed the power of fear and is growing larger as it consumes entire worlds. One of the Green Lanterns, Abin Sur (TEMUERA MORRISON), is mortally wounded and makes it to Earth where his power ring selects Hal to become the next Green Lantern. The ring transports Hal to the planet Oa, where he receives training from Sinestro (MARK STRONG), Tomar-Re (voice of GEOFFREY RUSH), and Kilowog (voice of MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN).

Back on Earth, Hector has been recruited by a secret government agency headed by Dr. Amanda Waller (ANGELA BASSETT) to perform the autopsy on Abin Sur. He ends up becoming infected with Parallax and develops extraordinary telekinetic and telepathic powers. Upon Hal's return, the newest Green Lantern must not only overcome his own fears and doubts, he'll also have to do battle with his former friend turned evil and eventually face Parallax alone as it seeks to consume us next.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
