Type: Sci-Fi / Fantasy
Director: Martin Campbell
A great but reckless test pilot is given a green ring by a dying alien and in doing so he gains super powers and and joins an inter-galactic police force. He doubts his ability and calling and so walks away from the job, but returns when his girl friend and the earth is threatened with destruction. This is not the best of the super hero type films as the plot drags in places and the pacing is uneven, but Ryan Reynolds is good as the slightly vulnerable super hero. Peter Sarsgaard is good as the villan, but Blake Lively is underused, being cast as the love interest, rather than anything stronger.
