Pilot and future Green Lantern Hal Jordan refuses to kill the enemy in the Korean War because he doesn't believe in the cause "even though North Koreans started the war in an attack on the US' allied South Korea. Princess Dianna opines that America is no longer "in the right" after WW II. Sorely disappointed in this film. Blatantly liberal, exposing its bias early on dishing out the usual slander about Joe McCarthy. His actions have already been vindicated several times over, but like good communists, liberals just keep saying the lie over and over until innocent and unaware people don't know the difference between truth and falsehood. What's funny "and sad" about it, is that the climaxical point is one about putting differences aside to defend America's Liberty. Yet references are continually made that make the conservative right look dictatorial while the liberal left is made to look as great promoters of freedom. It seems today's comic writers have failed to observe history correctly: Hitler's rise came through his Socialist Party! This gives the film an unfortunate and smelly aroma of hypocrisy: A sad, vain attempt to make communism look good. Apparently, only the liberals in the current DC universe can be heroes. Against the big threat the of "The Center" "odd name when you think about political metaphors" Superman, usually seen by DC writers as aligned with the conservative right, is dispatched early, and has little impact in the battle even though he is the one that calls for an end to political bickering to stop, and unites the so-call Justice League heroes. Sigh. If you let your children watch this, watch with them to discuss the hidden views. Good way to build critical thinking skills. On a more technical note, the visuals are poorly drawn, although the attempted emulation of 50s era heroes and art is fairly consistent.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
