Review: Green Lantern Emerald Knights

As the home planet of the Green Lantern Corps faces a battle with an ancient enemy, Hal Jordan prepares new recruit Arisia for the coming conflict by relating stories of the first Green Lantern and several of Hal’s comrades.

I still get chills when I hear the Green Lantern oath, there is something about that just prepares you for battle.

“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!“

This animated movie came out in the summer and I for one love all of them, and this is a little different then the usual Green Lantern story. You get introduced to Hal Jordan as a familiar character but not a story about him, its more about the Core and the Green Lanterns. What was entertaining is that you get introduced to a few different characters in the Green Lantern Core and see how it developed, and the story develops around their current threat that faces the Green Lanterns. The animation is simple reminds me of the animated show the Justice League and it isn’t as good as Green Lantern First Flight but still very fun to watch. Made me put my Green Lantern ring on and see if it works, doesn’t hurt to try.

The Green Lantern Models

I made this model purchase before the movie even came out, I was so excited to see the Green Lantern since GL is one of my favorite characters from DC Comics for a long time, by far one of the best. I just couldn’t wait for movie so I preordered the Hal Jordan statue using his ring, and the Green Lantern Lantern itself which came with the Green Lantern ring.

I was surprised how cool the Hal Jordan statue was, very detailed look and the green punch forming around him, I loved it. Then Lantern was amazing, it looked exactly like the one from the movi and the added bonus was that the ring fit perfectly, and if you bring the ring close to the Lantern it surprised me, the Lantern lights up which is insanely cool. This is displayed proudly with the rest of my comic and movie memorabilia. Can’t wait for the GL2 to come out, they said its supposed to be darker and edgier which is exactly what it needs to be and they have so much story to use from the Green Lantern comic books, I just can’t wait.
