Weird scene in the Green Lantern movie

#1 Edited by cattlebattle (12579 posts) - - Show Bio

Tomar-re states numrous times that theres is 3,000 some odd lanterns in the universe, however when they show a pan out of the corps. listening to Sinestros speech, there appears to be millions. Is there a reason for that? Are the rest of them reserves or something

just another continuity error

yeah, it definitely looks more like the 7200 lanterns that it's supposed to be, but it doesn't look like MILLIONS.

I didn't notice a problem. 3600 is a lot of lanterns though.

Maybe they had too much spare CGI left they didn't want to go wasted...

Meh, who cares? Did anyone care when there were no houses in Thor?

3600 is a big number. DOnt be a douche and judge everything. If you were in the power where it mattered you wouldnt be on this website. However its better then a comedy with Jack Black (The original plot) so just chill and go count all the lanterns. also editors would rather do 3600 then 1,000,000.

I too enjoyed the movie. Although I'm not a huge Green Lantern fan, so I didn't catch any continuity errors that a lot of fans had. i think they could really step it up, if they did a sequel.

Honestly I think people just WANT to not like the movie. Like bashing on X-Men Origins was getting old so they moved on to another. No, it wasn't as good as Batman Begins. But cut them a break it wasn't BAD. For the first time ever doing such a unique power set on screen, they did well. A sequel done right could be very good indeed.

What about that scene where he straight up murders people in a parking lot? Awkward.

They should have just filmed Green Lantern: Secret Origin instead of giving us a really, really cheesey 80s made-for-tv film. Special effects don't make up for poorly written dialogue or a poorly plotted story.

Finally, Ryan Reynolds is not to blame. He did what he could with the BS he was given. He was a great choice for Hal.

This review sums up how I feel:

And yes, I am a (disappointed) Green Lantern fan

I actually liked it...

and no it wasn't millions WTH. Do you know what MILLIONS looks like? millions is the entire population of a large city or a capital.

I'd say there we probably a few thousands, max 10 thousand, but not more than that, definetally not

also, isn't there like 3 human lanterns from the corps? Kyle, hal and john? Earth is sector 2814 so that means that there could be more than 1 lantern per sector (Im no expert so Im open to be proven wrong)

and also Guy Gardner, even though he isn't fully human he is from Earth
