EVEN THOUGH "GREEN LANTERN - FIRST FLIGHT" HAS NOT TAKEN *FLIGHT INTO STORES UNTIL THE 28/07/09' THE BUZZ FOR THIS D.C ANIMATED FEATURE HAS JUST BEEN IMENSE, YOU'VE GOT ALL THE GREAT D.C UNIVERSE WRITERS AND PRODUCERS WORKING ON THIS TITLE INCLUDED: BRUCE W. TIMM ( BATMAN TAS / SUPERMAN TAS ) AND THE SAME TEAM THAT BROUGHT YOU THE LAST 3 D.C ANIMATED MOVIES FROM THE D.C UNIVERSE E.G: SUPERMAN / DOOMSDAY.
FROM WHAT IVE HEARD THIS WILL BE A FAST PACED ORIGIN STORY WITH ACTION GALORE NOT SO DIFFERENT TO THE WONDER WOMAN ANIMANTED FEATURE, THE STORY IS OF THE TEST PILOT "HAL JORDAN" AND HIS JOURNEY FROM A COCKY TEST PILOT TO A MEMBER OF THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS, D.C ARE KNOWN TO KEEP THEIR FEATURES IN SYNC WITH THEIR CHARACTERS ORIGIN BACKROUNDS WITH SOME MINOR CHANGES FOR EXAMPLE WITH THIS MOVIE THE COSTUMES VARY FROM THERE COUNTER-PARTS IN THE COMICS.
ALL IN ALL THIS SHOULD BE AN OVERLY ENJOYABLE MOVIE AND I CANT WAIT FOR THE RELEASE DATE TO GO OUT AND BUY IT, I SUGGEST YOU FOLLOW SUIT.
THANKS FOR READING, OH YEAH 1 LAST THING.....
IN BLACKEST DAY,
IN DARKEST NIGHT,
NO EVIL SHALL ESCAPE MY SIGHT,
LET THOSE WHO WORSHIP EVILS MIGHT,
BEWARE MY POWER...... GREEN LANTERNS LIGHT
Look, to most fans, Green Lantern and his story is known, so don't expect it to change DRASTICALLY in this movie. I won't give away anything, but old fan will enjoy as well as new cartoon / anime fans. This is GREEN LANTERN reborn for a new generation of fans.
KID friendly - keeps the little ones attention - 9/10 (there is some killing and although no graphically shown, maybe much for younger ones).
FEMALE friendly - typically they won't care, but the action draws the ladies in as well and the well paced STORY keep them there - 9/10.
Specifically, what does pop out - The Animation is SUPERB and COLOR & CLARITY make for a very exciting action movie. The cartoon style is different from previous animation by DC (BATMAN, Wonder Woman, JL: Final Frontier)the GL movie has it's own style, same way the SUPERMAN/DOOMSDAY had a different style.
Things to KNOW...
1) You can buy this anywhere.
2) BEST BUY had a week 1 special - the BLU-RAY or DVD came with a Green Lantern - Hal Jordan figurine. Same as the Wonder Woman, it has alot of articulation and is sure to go up in VALUE (Wonder Woman goes for $25 on E-BAY).
Fans already know the story... A dying aliens finds test pilot Hal Jordan (the second of five Green Lanterns) and bestows upon him the ring of the Green Lantern. He is teamed with Sinestro, a Green Lantern with ambitions of his own. Sinestro makes a deal with the Weaponers of Qwad to develop a Green Power Ring that gives him the ability to beat the Lantern Corps.
Okay, that's the basics, but this movie really elevates an old story into an art form. Christopher Meloni of Law and Order Fame does a respectable job as the voice of Jordan. The action scenes are quite intense for an animated film (almost being on par with Anime)
I enjoyed the movie. Solid Green Lantern movie. They probably could have went with something more epic, GL comics certainly have many epic storylines, but it was still good. Solid animation, good voice-acting, and good battle-scenes. Things mostly stuck to the comic roots, as well.
I enjoyed the extras, a lot. I had heard from other GL fans about the Duck Dodgers GL episode, but never had watched it before this, so that was a big plus. And I'm a HUGE Justice League Unlimited fan, so the 3-parter as an extra was fantastic. It was almost like getting a whole other feature movie.
This DVD is definetly worth the price it goes for.
This film rocks it! It is a retelling of the origin story of Hal Jordan, Green Lantern. Everything about this film is amazing; the voice acting, the script, the art/animation, the plot, the dialogue, the character representation, the action.
Nothing but my highest praise. Bravo!
