Want to learn more about some of the best 'Green Lantern' movie quotes? You've come to the right place. Some of the best lines from the 2011 'Green Lantern' movie are from Hal Jordan, but others, from Tomar-re for example, are also great. Read on for some of the best quotes from the new 'Green Lantern' movie...including, of course, one of the single coolest superhero oaths ever. EVER! Be sure to vote on the 'Green Lantern' quotes you like the most, and add those that aren't already on the list.

'Green Lantern' features Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, playboy fighter pilot-turned, well, Universe saver. With the help of a mysterious and powerful ring, Hal fights alongside the Green Lantern Corps to save Earth from certain destruction. Didn't see the movie when it hit theaters? You'll be able to see it on DVD or possibly streaming on Netflix, if the streaming gods allow it. Despite some pretty scathing reviews from movie critics, 'Green Lantern' did draw an audience: As of early-September 2011, the film had grossed more than $214 million worldwide.

'Green Lantern' was one of the first big superhero movies released during summer 2011, but it sure wasn't the only one! For more action movie quotes, check out these lists of the best lines from 'Captain America: The First Avenger,' 'Conan the Barbarian,' 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', 'X-Men: First Class' 'Super 8,' 'Straw Dogs' and 'Cowboys and Aliens!'

    Hal Jordan: "In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let all who worship evil's might, Beware my power, Green Lantern's light!"

    Ah, apparently the oath just comes to Hal - it's the ring. It chose him, it can make him say what it wants. Including a bad ass oath...one of the best ever.

    Hal Jordan: "What is that?"
    Tomar-Re: "It is the energy generated from the central battery. It's power comes from the will of every living creature in the universe. This in turn charges your lantern which in turn charges your ring. Even your suit is comprised entirely of energy."
    Hal Jordan: "What's with all the green?"
    Tomar-Re: "Green is the color of will. The guardians harnessed will because it is the strongest source of energy in the universe."

    Hal Jordan: "Yeah, I've been shaking up the wardrobe lately."

    A nice new jacket, a pair of green tights - really, Hal's branching out.
