I’m always interested when I hear directors or actors admit that a film project they’ve been involved with was crap. Not that I take great joy in their failure, but I actually like when they admit it, as it shows that these people don’t see themselves as perfect Gods and that not everything they put out is going to be solid. Previously, it was Transformers 2 with Michael Bay (who should be apologizing for his entire filmography outside the one Meat Loaf video he did).
Now, noted Kiwi director Martin Campbell who made some of the better day Bond movies such as GoldenEye and Casino Royale can add his name to the list of confessions.
If you didn’t know what Martin Campbell looked like before, you do now.
That’s all well and good. But I think his most recent turkey is going to require more apologies in the near future.
The flying scenes in this look worse than Superman III. Yes, really!
I’d write more about Green Lantern, but I’m sure there are a dozen other blogs, news article and review sites that will gladly repeat what I would write here.
