Green Lantern: First Flight (DVD)
Green Lantern: First Flight is an animated and lively origin story about the transformation of test pilot Hal Jordan into a member of an intergalactic society watching over the universe. Flying an experimental jet one day, Jordan (voiced by Law and Order: Special Victims Unit's Christopher Meloni) encounters a dying alien who is a Green Lantern protector of Earth's sector of the cosmos. The alien's ring, a repository of enormous power granted by a council of elders called the Guardians, zips onto Jordan's finger, but neither the Guardians nor other Green Lanterns are ready to accept him as an unproven member. Complicating things for Jordan is the fact that the Green Lantern tasked with mentoring him, Sinestro (Victor Garber), is plotting the destruction of the Guardians with the acquisition of "yellow power," the only force that makes the Lanterns' green power useless.
Jordan's resilience and willingness to throw himself in harm's way for the good of everyone gain respect, but his inevitable showdown with Sinestro is an epic fight. This PG-13 feature is a bit bloody, and there are a few swear words, but most of the violence arises from that familiar, shape-shifting light emanating from Jordan's ring. Happily, there is some of the old DC Comics wit in the way his Green Lantern ring shapes its beam into such imaginative weapons as a golf club and a flyswatter. --Tom Keogh

|I can't wait for the uninformed and unwarranted "reviews" of this movie!||
Personally, I really love this movie. I didn't really know much about the GREEN LANTERN story before watching this movie, so I did research of who Hal Jordan was afterward. If you're an avid fan of the character and story, this wouldn't excite you too much given that it isn't the complete origin... Read More

|First Flight v. Emerald Knights?||
Nope, no rehash here.
While they do share a very similar animation style story-wise and thematically they are quite different.
First Flight focuses the story on Hal and, as the name might imply, is a retelling of his origin as well as his introduction to Oa, the Guardians, and the GL corps. It... Read More

|what's the difference in extra contents of dvd vs bluray?||
One of the differences seems to be an additional 4 episodes from JL and JLU picked by Timm just like the other releases. You may not mind if you already have those series (which you definitely should if you are planning on buying this) and also as a personal recomendation I would say go for the... Read More
