Buy it... if your passion for superhero fantasy music is so forgiving that you can get in the mood to kick godless alien ass to the sounds of a disappointing reprise of ambient design and occasional, derivative orchestral flourishes.

Avoid it... if you seek something (or really anything) new in the realm of superhero music, because James Newton Howard sleepwalks through this score without making much effort to instill a unique sound upon this concept's history.

Green Lantern: (James Newton Howard) Considered at one point to be the most anticipated comic book adaptation film of 2011, Green Lantern landed on Earth with a tremendous thud. Warner Brothers reportedly spent upward of $300 million making and promoting the DC Comics characters' debut on the big screen, only to see it struggle to recoup half of that amount at the worldwide box office. The concept had been batted around by several studios for decades before Martin Campbell stepped in to helm Green Lantern through production hazards that included significant script re-writes and late special effects work that required Warner to pump more money into the film just to meet its target debut date. A solid pummeling by critics defined the movie as little more than a sound and light show, and fans dumped it almost immediately after its initial theatrical flourish. The plot of Green Lantern serves as an origins story for the concept and its main character, and for those of you not familiar with the DC storyline, it suffices to say that a group of wacky-looking aliens called the "Green Lantern Corps" protects the universe by assigning a "Green Lantern" (a representative from a myriad of species that have special powers bestowed upon them) to each sector of space. When a nasty fear-mongering being called Parallax runs loose, kills one of these protectors, and eventually ends up on Earth (plenty of hot babes and tax loopholes on this planet), an average American male is absurdly chosen to be the Green Lantern for this sector and trained by an understandably hesitant mentor. Proving that humans aren't so damn dumb and hopeless as a trip to Wal-Mart would otherwise indicate, the new superhero of our region does his thing in a grand show of bravery and says the oath of his group to pave the way for the sequels the studio was hoping to green-light before abysmal returns muted such banter. Apparently asleep during half of that show was composer James Newton Howard, a veteran of superhero movies who is typically considered to be a counterweight to the flow of generic blockbuster noise emanating from his friend Hans Zimmer's clone factory.

The insert includes a list of performers but no extra information about the score or film. As in many of Amazon.com's "CDr on demand" products, the packaging smells incredibly foul when new.
