Green Lantern (2011)

Green Lantern is an attempt by DC to be more like Marvel’s formula of films. This means that, for a DC film, it tries to be more humorous than other DC movies would usually be. However, there are several parts of this film I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. For one thing, the character of Hector Hammond is incredibly creepy for younger children. Throughout the movie, his head swells in a disgusting mass, and he slowly loses his sanity. I remember being in the movie theater, and hearing several children crying because of how unsettling the character was. As for deaths, a man is burned to death onscreen following a very distressing scene featuring Hector Hammond, following several men being impaled with glass, and a doctor being stabbed in the eye with a syringe. Also, the main cause of death in this movie appears to be a form of essence-draining that leaves the corpse drained and skeletal, as if they’ve been dead for centuries. This happens to a massive crowd of people at the climax. If the viewer is easily overwhelmed by violent crowd scenes, it can be very difficult to watch. As for blood, there’s very little actual bleeding in this film, and the blood that is shown is alien blood, and may not be as concerning for some viewers.
