A movie that Ryan Reynolds gave a one out of 10 has landed on Netflix and - despite what he thinks - is proving popular with viewers.
However, it turns out that he’s no fan of one of his most well-known roles, which has recently landed on Netflix and made its way into the top-10 most watched movies this week - sitting in fourth place.
One viewer even took to X [Twitter] to share that the movie 'wasn't that bad'. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but better than nothing, right?
Green Lantern, released in 2011, is a superhero flick based on the DC Comics character of the same name.
A synopsis from Netflix explains: “Test pilot Hal Jordan (played by Reynolds) harnesses glowing new powers for good when he wears an otherworldly ring and helps an intergalactic force stop a powerful threat.”
The movie was one of the biggest Box Office flops of all time, pulling in $220 million against a production budget of $200 million.
As well as being a commercial disaster, it was widely panned by critics, and holds a 25 percent score on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes where a critics’ consensus reads: “Noisy, overproduced, and thinly-written, Green Lantern squanders an impressive budget and decades of comics mythology.”
And it turns out that Reynolds isn’t a fan, either.
During an appearance on Plead the Fifth, Reynolds was asked to rate Green Lantern out of 10, with one being the worst and 10 being the best.
He responded: “I would give it a scant four… maybe. Three or four.”
But Reynolds couldn’t hold back from what he really thought as he then screamed: “It’s a one!” Ouch.
Although Reynolds might not believe the flick is his best work, he has no regrets about starring in it, as it's where he met his now-wife, Blake Lively.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said: “Look, the movie obviously didn’t work but it’s one of those things…”
He added: “No regrets, it was amazing. Met my future wife. We were buddies then - it was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone, we were both single. We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl. And that was the most awkward date for our respective partners, because we were just like fireworks coming across.”
