      “The Green Lantern: First Flight” is an animated movie installment to the DC Comics story of a test pilot turned intergalactic superhero. When Abin Sur, a beloved member of the Green Lantern Corps crashes on earth, he calls forth a worthy replacement, Hal Jordan the test pilot, to take his power ring.

      The ring provides the super hero abilities of the

      Green Lantern, an elite force of super heroes.

      He is summoned by the Guardians, the keepers of the Green Element, the substance which provides the energy for the rings.

      They oversee the Green Lantern Corps to ensure the safety, justice, and peace of the universe.

      Because they are unsure of the capriciousness of humans, they decide to test out the newest recruit under the watchful eye of one of their most elite Green Lanterns, Sinestro.

      Unbeknownst to them, Sinestro is harvesting the Yellow Element, the one substance that is more powerful than the Green Element in order to overthrow the Guardians and bring his new power to order.

      This animated movie is an entertaining introduction to the story of the Green Lantern.


      • The Green Lantern: First Flight animated movie
      Because it is animated, a lot of the action of the comic books is brought to life through the cartoon.

      The movie is action filled but easy to follow along to.

      It provides a glimpse to the beginning of the tale of Hal Jordan as a Green Lantern and galaxies in which he travels to protect the order of the universe.

      Fortunately, as a cartoon, the story was clearly depicted with all of the intergalactic aliens.

      It may have seemed silly to watch a live action version of the guardians who all look like flying smurfs.

      This movie was entertaining with a fast moving plot; though I have never read the comic books, it may be a good one to try for fans of the comics.
