I WAITED 2 WEEKS TO GET THE BLU RAY "SPECIAL EDITION" AND IT WAS JUST A REGULAR BLU-RAY. . . IT DOES NOT COME WITH A DIGITAL COPY OR BOX SET. WHEN I CALLED BACK THEN SAID THEY HAD SENT ME THE WRONG ONE AND I WAITED ANOTHER TWO WEEKS FOR IT. WHEN IT FINALLY CAME IN IT WAS THE SAME BLU-RAY NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURE SHOWS AND NO DIGITAL COPY. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CHEAPER AND BETTER TO GO GET IT SOMEWHERE ELSE. THIS IS FALSE ADVERTISEMENT.
Pilot Hal Jordan goes for the ride of his life when his test pod is mysteriously transported from the safety of an airforce hanger to a rocky desert only to encounter a bizarre dying alien named Abin Sur, who had summoned Jordan via his powerful. Abin Sur dies and Hal's world is turned upside down and he is introduced to the Green Lantern Corps, guardians of the galaxy. Under the tutelage of Sinestro, Hal learns to use his newfound power and witness, thanks to Sinestro's words and actions, that the Guardians of Oa-those who created the Green Lantern Corps and the green lantern power battery-have grown soft in their approach to intergalactic crime. Sinestro believes a more stern approach is needed and so takes Hal under his wing to show him that might makes right. The Corps faces a crisis as the Yellow Element-the only force capable of weakening the Green Element, which powers the Corps's green battery on Oa-has been stolen. Should it be used against them, the Green Lantern Corps will crumble and the galaxy as we know it will no longer be protected and chaos and evil will reign. Green Lantern, to me, has always been a cool character, yet he's also always been an overlooked character outside the realm of us hardcore superhero guys. Batman? Sure. Superman? We know him even better. Spider-Man? Yeah, good movies on the big screen. But Green Lantern? Wasn't he that green guy from that old Super Friends show, the one with that ring that does stuff and, um, well . . . I really appreciated the origin tone of this movie and even more so that 99% of it didn't take place on Earth. Here we got to get a solid look at the world of Green Lantern, which is an intergalactic one and not confined to a bustling Metropolis or an eerie Gotham. To see the Green Lantern Corps-all those aliens with varied green uniforms-really added to the scope of what the Corps is all about and a visual reminder that humanity's protection is only a small part of what they do. According to this movie, there are 3600 green lanterns, each with their own sector to watch over. Solid. I had only a couple minor quibbles with this movie. I thought Hal Jordan dove into the Green Lantern thing rather quickly. He gets the ring and suddenly-BAM-he's all green and knows what to do. He also seemed too casual and calm about all these alien encounters he suddenly finds himself having. If that was you or me, we'd be freaking out the second Abin Sur showed up, green ring or otherwise. Likewise, Hal Jordan seemed to be the only guy who got back to wearing regular clothes when the ring came off, whereas everyone else still retained their uniform. I thought the uniform came with the ring. Take the ring off and you're back to wearing whatever it was when you put it on. Again, minor, but something I would have liked to have seen handled better. I know that comic books and comic book movies are not as much for kids as they used to be. Once again this DC film has some foul language in it. Not impressed because it's kids asking their moms for these flicks. It's not like the old days where superhero cartoons were clean language-wise. The action is great. The fights are cool. If Green Lantern: First Flight is meant as a primer for the upcoming live action film, man, we're in for a real treat and an awe-inspiring experience coming 2011. This flick is solid, enjoyable and fun. Check it out. A.P. Fuchs Canister X
Not being a huge Green Lantern fan when I was a kid, I wasn't sure what to expect when I got this, but I was not disappointed in the least. This was an excellent re-telling of GL's origin, while also explaining the relationship between him and Sinestro (I could never figure out how he came to be). The acting as well as the action was very satisfying and definitely builds up some anticipation for the live-action film that is currently in the works.
Good story , and plot line , good quality animation , first rate voice actors. Good affordable price.
This is a good movie showing how the Green Lantern started.I have read comics when I was young.This rendition stays pretty true to how Green Lantern started.It has a very good characters and a good story line.Sinistro has bulked up and is even more imposing.This a good movie to begin GL lets hope there will be more in the future.
Green Lantern is on of my favorite character and i like d the fact that after calling all over town you guys had the dvd i had been waiting to see. the back grund story could havde had more detail about the poeple in Hal's life as well the corps and the and more of his training. overall very dvd.
DC had outdoen tislef once again and guven us another great origin story as Hal Jordan is given the ring of the Green Lanterns and sets on on a cosmic adventure. This is anotehr great animated DC film. If I had anything negative to say it is that we are not given time to see Hal learn what the ring can do, they go form him getting the ring to him flying around and expalin it away with a throw away line. A must buy!
Green Lantern is the least well-know to the general public of DC Comics' major characters, but he is also the most interesting. This movie introduces Hal Jordan (the Silver Age GL) in a updated modern tale that is as dramatic as any live-action film. It feature the origin of the evil Sinestro and serves as an introduction to the Green Lantern Corps for those who may not be as familiar with the characters as they are with Superman & Batman. The PG-13 rating is a bit much despite some animated violence and suggestive moments. A must have for any fan of comic book superheroes (especially those from the DC Universe).
