Green Lantern: First Flight (2009) - Film Capsule

Heroes: Green Lantern Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps

Villains: Sinestro (and Kanjar Ro)

Diabolical Scheme: Sinestro wants to wield the power of the yellow element to bring a new order to the galaxy.

Coolest Moment(s): Watching him use moons as weapons. Lets just see Batman do that. Also, a shower of rings following a mass killing of GLs established Sinestro as a real threat.

Worst Moment: The first few minutes could have used some padding. And a picnic basket construct is kinda lame.

Comic Book Logic: How did punching an exhausted green element release more power, and then, only directed at Hal?

Review in 50 Words or Less: Expectations for direct to DVDs must be checked, but GL delivered epic scope and polished animation. In fact, animation just may be the best medium for balancing creative lantern constructs with a semblance of believability. This just may be DCs best animated feature so far. Bring on GL 2!
