Product Description

An anthology of 6 tales that show Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns policing the galaxy a la “Gotham Knights.”

Amazon.com

A crash course in all things Green Lantern is offered in Emerald Knights, a DC Universe Animated Original feature that details the history of Hal Jordan and his Green Lantern Corps cohorts in an engaging and action-packed anthology film. Taking its cue from 2008's Batman: Gotham Knight, Emerald Knights spins the origin stories for Jordan and four pioneer members of the corps--Kilowog, Laira, Mogo, and Abin Sur--as a sort of inspiration for newly minted member Arisia (whom longtime GLC fans will know as Arisia Rrab) before she joins them in battle against the exiled scientist turned pure energy being Krona, who poses a threat to the entire universe. The five stories, including that of Jordan joining the corps, hew closely to the original source material, thanks to the presence of writers like DC Comics' chief creative officer Geoff Johns, fellow Green Lantern writers Peter J. Tomasi and Eddie Berganza, Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), and Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green, who penned the live-action Green Lantern that will undoubtedly spur many viewers to seek out this feature. The stories are dramatic and well scripted, and avoid the clunky linking devices that plagued Gotham Knight, and the voice cast, led by fan favorite Nathan Fillion (Castle) as Hal Jordan and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) as Arisia, is solid, with contributions by Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy) as Abin Sur and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter's Lucius Malfoy) as Sinestro among the highlights. The animation is also top-notch, with the interplanetary scenes rendered with an impressively cosmic sweep. Extras, however, are limited to sneak peeks of DCU's All-Star Superman and Batman: Year One. --Paul Gaita

I saw an advance screening of this movie at Wondercon this weekend and there is legitimate reason to be excited about this. I have to admit that I was not impressed by Green Lantern: First Flight, the last DC Animated movie featuring Green Lantern, but they have really redeemed themselves in this one. This is 5 different stories (based off of classic Green Lantern comic issues) told as war stories by Hal Jordan (voiced by Nathan Fillion of Firefly fame) before they face a huge threat. Each of the stories focus on different members of the Green Lantern Corps and really show off the diversity that is so great about Green Lantern stories. The stories of the first Green Lantern and of Kiliwog both excelled in dramatizing how, despite the awesome power of the ring, courage really is a Green Lantern's greatest asset. The story about Mogo was based on a comic by Alan Moore and really drove the point home about how different Green Lanterns can be. I really hope DC continues to make similar animated movies, where they take advantage of the wealth of good stories from their huge catalogue of comics to create engaging movies.

One of the big problems I had with Green Lantern: First Flight was that the ring was usually used as some kind of green laser blaster, but in Emerald Knights there are some truly creative uses of the ring in the action scenes. Green Lanterns use the ring to cover themselves in a bombshell shape as they ram through starships, another Lantern uses the ring to form several different Chinese martial art weapons, etc. The action is fast, well animated, and with a variety of styles for the different stories. The drama and character building are also very effective. All in all, this is great animation worthy of not just renting but also owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales of the GL Corps! April 9, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

I got to see the entire animated film before its release date and listen to Bruce Timm discuss this great film, the best I've seen in the DC Animated universe.

And that's really saying something. I loved the latest Wonder Woman film with its emphasis on battle and the honor of the Amazons. I thrilled to the Red Hood and Batman's quest. But this film takes the best qualities of these and transforms them into a "GL Corps" that is really great.

Not to give too much away, but the film is broken down into an anthology format. Hal Jordan is explaining to his new recruit while they're hanging out on the Planet Oa, recharging their rings for a battle against Krona (which happens near the end of the film).

Some of the stories include when Kilowog (a tough drill sergeant who puts new GLs through the paces and anyone who doesn't measure up is a "Poozer") was himself a recruit and has to put up with a drill instructor who is tougher than he is! Self-sacrifice and working as a team are themes here.

Another tale that impressed me was Laira, a woman Lantern that has what Timm referred to as a mix of Star Wars' Jedi Master and Indiana Jones and martial arts. When she has to return to her home planet and face her own father in a battle that is heartbreaking to say the least.

As the two battle, these little hologram eggs accidentally open and show scenes where she would play with her father or they're having picnics together, etc. These homey scenes clash with the battle scenes and the irony and pathos of the scene just rips your eyes out. It's that amazing.

That bump of cynicism suggests that GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS, DC's latest animated original movie, was released predominantly to prep movie goers for the upcoming live action film. And yet it also services those like me who used to read the TALES OF THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS comic book and also those who long for a peek at the larger canvas promised by the Green Lantern mythos.

Our main man, Hal Jordan, is featured here but he's not the big draw or even the central character. Instead, our point-of-view character is the teenager Arisia, the Green Lantern Corps' newest recruit. EMERALD KNIGHTS is an anthology film, the backdrop of which is that the Lanterns have gathered en masse to await the impending arrival of Krona, one of the Guardians of the Universe's most ancient and deadliest foes. As they cool their heels, the Lanterns (but mostly Hal Jordan) regale an overwhelmed Arisia with stories plucked from the Green Lantern Corps' rich history.

We eavesdrop as Hal reveals to Arisia that, interestingly, the first being ever to receive the ring was not the first Green Lantern. The first Lantern, in fact, was Avra, a lowly scribe present on that day, standing apart from the legion of candidates. Avra was there only to record the momentous ceremony in which the four inaugural rings will choose their bearers, except that the fourth ring chose him. We learn that it was Avra who, in a time of peril, discovered that the bearer's iron will, given substance, could overcome frightening odds.

If you thought Kilowog was the meanest boot camp drill sergeant in the Corps, think again, you poozer. Next up is the tale of Sgt. Deegan, indeed the meanest, most ornery sumbitch whom the fresh-faced recruits, Kilowog and Tomar Re, ever had the misfortune to meet.
