I've never read the comics, but from what I understand, the movies stick very close to them. This particular story was very intriguing. I always liked the Green Lantern, but never really knew Hal Jordan's character. My only issue was the intro seemed really rushed. Hal gets the ring, and is apparently really fluent with it, with no training (montage anyone?) or anything. Regardless, the story was packed with action, with a good twist at the end.
One thing I've noticed is that the DC movies seem a little more brutal and violent then when I was younger. I don't know if I just pay more attention now, or if it really has changed, either way, I still enjoy the movies.
Jordan quickly finds himself caught up in cosmic-scale events, as the Green Lantern Corps arrest him for possessing the ring without permission of the overseers of the Corps. Jordan faces the accusation that he is unworthy and quickly proves himself to be a natural at wielding the ring, despite his inexperience. He is embroiled in a conspiracy that reaches to very high levels in the Corps, but his own innate talent and determination allow him to overcome great odds in pursuit of true justice.
While the story is not exactly in line with the comic origin of Hal as Green Lantern, this movie does go far to show why he was regarded as the greatest Lantern ever, since despite his inexperience he takes on and defeats the prior claimant to that title. There are a number of violent deaths in this movie, so it's not exactly intended for small kids to watch though they surely see worse in video games these days.
This is a fantastic story told with wonderful animation that surpasses all the other movies in the line thus far. Even with voice actors who I would not have chosen, the creators delivered in First Flight a wonderful origin story for one of the core DCU characters.
Warner Bros has certainly put some effort to make these DC animated titles to really standout on Blu-Ray. "Green Lantern: First Flight" is presented in a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen format. The picture quality is truly impressive. On the other hand, its 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio track lacks some punch in some of the big action sequences, but overall it's good. Despite the lack of an audio commentary track, the Blu-Ray comes well sorted with 5 comic book featurettes, extended promos of previously released animated movies, the "Duck Dodgers" episode "The Green Loontern", 5 "Justice League" episodes (Hearts and Minds PT 1 & 2, The Return & Once and Future Thing PT 1 & 2) and the 8-minute sneak peek of the upcoming animated movie "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies". Overall, "Green Lantern: First Flight" scores a "B+".
I thought the movie was a pretty cool, action packed movie. The only thing that kind of bothered me was that when Hal gets the ring it's like he already knows how to use it right as he puts it on. Now as I said before I'm pretty new to the Green Lantern universe so unless that's how the ring works it just didn't seem right to me since in the live action movie he had to learn how to use the powers. As you get further in the movie it's like he already becomes a Green lantern god within like just a couple days of being a Green Lantern. That was pretty much my only complaint about the movie everything else was cool and it was fun to watch.
