3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it could have been, June 9, 2011
This review is from: Green Lantern: Emerald Knights [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
You'd figure that a collection of various Green Lantern stories written by guys like Geoff Johns, Dave Gibbons, and Peter J. Tomasi would result in a great animated feature. With Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, you'd be sadly wrong. While this latest DC Universe animated feature isn't bad one bit, it still feels kind of lacking. Green Lantern Hal Jordan (voiced by Nathan Fillion) narrates a collection of tales to young recruit Arisa (Elisabeth Moss) involving various Lanterns past and present such as Sinestro(Jason Isaacs), Kilowog(Henry Rollins), Laira (Kelly Hu), and even Abin-Sur (Arnold Vosloo). The Abin-Sur tale is by far the best of the bunch, and the Mogo-starring tale (featuring the voice of the great Rowdy Roddy Piper as a nefarious villain) is pretty fun too, but the interlocking tale featuring Hal and the Lanterns in an apocalyptic showdown is quite an anti-climactic letdown. While I'm all for seeing a multi-faceted collection featuring various Lanterns, I would have loved to have seen some others like Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, or even the little squirrel guy whose name I can't remember for the life of me. Despite its flaws though, the animation is wonderful, and the voice acting isn't too bad either. All in all, if you weren't impressed by Green Lantern: First Flight; Emerald Knights won't win you over either. Still, it's worth a look at least for Green Lantern fans regardless.
