** Hal and the Spectre making sure Linda Danvers would never see her child again during ''ComicBook/ManyHappyReturns'' is a particular sore spot for fans of that version of ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, especially when the narration made it clear Linda was more or less dead inside now.

** Dex-Starr's origin story will have you in tears at the end especially if you're a cat lover.

** Most people agree that Sinestro looked great and was written and acted perfectly.

** Kyle Rayner has a poison dick. It's often joked that dating Kyle is the equivalent of signing your own death sentence.

** The post-Johns New 52 ongoings, for introducing stupid concepts (the rings are actively destroying the universe), stupid villains (Relic) and just dumb creative decisions that were already proven to be bad ideas (making Hal the sole Green Lantern). Most of the creative decisions were undone for ''ComicBook/DCRebirth''.

** On the other hand, a lot of Johns' work was wiped out, including his run on Flash and JSA, so it's not as though he got to keep everything he wrote in continuity.

* HypeBacklash: [[Film/GreenLantern The movie]] was supposed to be DC's response to ''Film/IronMan''. But it wound up getting a mixed response.

** Hector Hammond's screaming. Just...really, it doesn't do his level of menace any favors, if he was even considered menacing.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: ConspicuousCG is invoked with the Lantern uniform and constructs.
** Also, all the introductory scenes look ridiculously fake, and there are plenty of times during Hal's training on Oa where it's inescapably obvious that you're watching Ryan Reynold's head in front of a green screen. Plus, every scene with Sinestro (or any of the aliens, actually).
* TaintedByThePreview: Many fans were not encouraged by the trailers, partly due to the special effects being underwhelming and also due to the "[[Film/IronMan Iron Man]]" vibe.

* ToughActToFollow: Not necessarily a ''bad'' movie, but being the first major DC film after ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', ''Green Lantern'' had a lot to live up to comparatively speaking. The comparison isn't exactly fair in the first place as although being "superhero" movies within that spectrum they are in wildly different genres. ''The Dark Knight'' is a crime/vigilante drama while ''Green Lantern'' is a Sci-fi SpaceOpera. Getting to theaters behind ''{{Film/Thor}}'' didn't help things either.

** Hal's AdaptationalComicRelief, done by the writers to take advantage of Creator/RyanReynolds' comedic talents. Some fans love it for making an bland character actually interesting while others think [[WhatTheHellCastingAgency it was a horrible casting choice]].
** The actual Green Lantern costume. Some fans argued that it being a glowing CGI construct made sense since it's supposed to be created by the ring, while others argued that it looked silly and was a needless waste of CGI. This is exasperated by Green Lantern's classic comic outfit often being held up as one of the best superhero outfit designs of the Silver Age.

* DesignatedHero: Hal, at least in the first part of the film, comes off as incredibly selfish. His ego costs people their jobs, and when they are understandably angry at him, he (unintentionally) hospitalizes them with his ring.
* DesignatedVillain: Hammond was actually a nice guy before being possesed by Parallax, with shades of TheWoobie and the {{Adorkable}}.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Many fans agree that Mark Strong's Sinestro was the best character of the movie.
** As mentioned below in OneSceneWonder, the other members of the Green Lantern Corps like Kilowog and Tomar-Re were liked despite their small role.

*** Similarly, there's the Outsiders member Halo, who has has a multicolored aura. Each color has a different power, except violet which brings out an alternate personality, just like with Carol Ferris in her earlier Star Sapphire incarnation.
