DVD of the Day #271 - Green Lantern: First Flight

I’m not really a big fan of Hal Jordan. Guy Gardener is the one true GL in my eyes, followed ky Killowog, G’Nort and Kyle Rayner. Hal is just a bland shallow character and so when this was announced as the next DC Direct animated film, I skipped on purchasing it, especially after how bad Gotham Knight and Superman/Doomsday were and how people were up in arms about Wonder Woman being shit.

However, thanks to Netflix, I picked this up. I thought it would make for a decent evening of entertaining crap. Well, Hal was still two dimensional, boring as hell and one of the blandest super heroes ever, but the rest of the cast and crew really made the film shine in spite of the lead character.

Most people know the origin of Hal Jordan, right? Abin Sur, a dying alien crash lands on Earth and tell shis ring to go find a suitable replacement to recieve his phenomonal cosmic power. The ring finds to, Guy and Hal, and picks Hal because he is closer. Hal inherits the ring and the lantern shaped battery and becomes the Green Lantern, another superhero from DC’s Silver Age.

This movie follows modern continuity more than the Silver Age, with Hal being trained by Sinestro and meeting all the other GL’s from across the universe right away. However, it then differs quite radically from any other Green Lantern continuity. First off, everyone automatically hates Hal because he’s human. Ouch.

Here we have Sinestro turning heel, as everyone who has ever read a DC comic or seen an episode of Super Friends expects. However I was surprised and pleasantly so to see Kanjar Ro and the Weaponers of Qward show up and have a decent role. I was also shocked that one of the most popualr Green Lanters of the 1990’s era turned heel and sided with Sinestro. That was a great twist and one I was shocked by.

This is also the most violent DC animated product I have ever seen. There is a LOT of death. Major characters from the Green Lantern mythos are killed off in this film. Several Green Lanterns die, a few characters from the GL rogue’s gallery bite it and it’ll be pretty hard to make a sequel because really, who is left for Green Lantern to face?

In all, I actually really enjoyed this, but it was more because of Sinestro, and seeing classic GL’s I haven’t seen since I was a little kid like CH’P, Arisa and I think I even saw Jack T. Chance, which was pretty cool. G’Nort would have been awesome to have as well. This really isn’t worth purchasing due to the movie only being about an hour long and the lack of interest I have for Hal Jordan, but I would pick it up for free if it came up on Swapadvd.com.

Is It Worth Keeping? No.
