Un misto di commedia brillante americana e di reinterpretazione dei personaggi.
Non raggiunge gli apici delle recenti produzioni Marvel-Disney (da qui le 4 stelle) ma forse ci stiamo viziando e pretendiamo sempre di più, magari troppo.

One of the big problems I had with Green Lantern: First Flight was that the ring was usually used as some kind of green laser blaster, but in Emerald Knights there are some truly creative uses of the ring in the action scenes. Green Lanterns use the ring to cover themselves in a bombshell shape as they ram through starships, another Lantern uses the ring to form several different Chinese martial art weapons, etc. The action is fast, well animated, and with a variety of styles for the different stories. The drama and character building are also very effective. All in all, this is great animation worthy of not just renting but also owning.
I got to see the entire animated film before its release date and listen to Bruce Timm discuss this great film, the best I've seen in the DC Animated universe.
And that's really saying something. I loved the latest Wonder Woman film with its emphasis on battle and the honor of the Amazons. I thrilled to the Red Hood and Batman's quest. But this film takes the best qualities of these and transforms them into a "GL Corps" that is really great.
Not to give too much away, but the film is broken down into an anthology format. Hal Jordan is explaining to his new recruit while they're hanging out on the Planet Oa, recharging their rings for a battle against Krona (which happens near the end of the film).
Some of the stories include when Kilowog (a tough drill sergeant who puts new GLs through the paces and anyone who doesn't measure up is a "Poozer") was himself a recruit and has to put up with a drill instructor who is tougher than he is! Self-sacrifice and working as a team are themes here.
Another tale that impressed me was Laira, a woman Lantern that has what Timm referred to as a mix of Star Wars' Jedi Master and Indiana Jones and martial arts. When she has to return to her home planet and face her own father in a battle that is heartbreaking to say the least.
As the two battle, these little hologram eggs accidentally open and show scenes where she would play with her father or they're having picnics together, etc. These homey scenes clash with the battle scenes and the irony and pathos of the scene just rips your eyes out. It's that amazing.
This film is much better than the earlier GL film "First Flight" and is a must-see to any Green Lantern or DC Animated film fan. Have you ever wondered about the first Green Lantern? How the constructs first appeared? The first mission of the first Green Lantern Corps? And how a Green Lantern can be an entire Planet??
Then pick this up! Its release date is June 7, 2011. It's direct to DVD!

Lets talk about the movie:
Loved the animation. Somewhere between anime and the DC animated universe
Great stories. All of the Tales from the Corps were entertaining and complete unto itself. Fun, engaging, and had some great lanterns in it.
Sinestro. Man, I love him as a GL. From First Flight and here, hes a great character. Geoff Johns has done a remarkable job in changing his character from a one-note villain to a truly complex character. Well done.
Extras. I enjoyed the Batman: Year One extended preview (although Ben Mackenzie seems like a bad choice for BATMAN, imo.)
The framing story with Krona. Very weak. Theres no story there. No explanation of Krona, really other than a few throwaway lines. He's not really much more than a cosmic Godzilla in the film. Disappointing.
If you're a GL fan, you've read most of the stories as GLC stories. Its great to see them animated, but there's no fresh stories really here, I dont think. Lots of recycling from old GLC annuals and such. (Something extremely disappointing is the continued smacking in the face of Alan Moore. I get it. DC owns the stories, But man, do they rely on his genius in their projects. 2 of the stories here come directly from past Tales of the Corps that he created. They are great stories, but I feel bad for the guy....)
Ring constructs. This is animation- no excuse for the laziness of this. While there were some good ones, there just a lots of ring blasting more than anything else. A few swords and weapons here and there, but nothing creative- no egg beaters, or baseball gloves, you know? Something thats used as a weapon, without actually being one. The previews I've seen of the upcoming movie look like they do a lot more with that than you'll see here.
The packaging. This is some of the weakest, lamest packaging ever. No insert, terrible DVD illustration. Just awful and cheap. But you're here for the movie, not the packaging, Im guessing...
As I said, if you're a GL fan, or like comics/sci fi, its a totally entertaining 80+ minutes at a good price....
I used to laugh (inside) at my 30 something year old roommate [years ago]. I was in my late 20's. I'm more of an out doors on the go, foodie type hobbyist. Just different type of play. And, I would wonder why the hell would a grown man put a Green Latern image as his facebook profile picture? I was just being a fuddy duddy adult. Ha ha ha.
Then I being bored one night decided to watch this movie. [I'm a fan of Nathan Fillion.] To my surprise...Awesome. Cool. Great story line. And since I'm not a comic connoisseur nor a specific hero groupie, let me just say I've become a Green Lantern fan. I may not be so hard core into the comic world but I value the creative story telling behind it. If I had an alternate calling I would not mind taking a shot at writing comic book stories. What an awesome way to expand and be expressive of oneself on so many levels. The comic world would be your oyster.
You got your typical dooms day end of the world or more like cosmos situation and you have a band of heros. Highlighted a few characters each with a story that shows why they deserve to wear the ring that connects to the "will." I couldn't help myself but want be drawn to Laira's story line. Yes, I'll be a nerd about it. I love a female character who can keep some arse.
And I'm almost tempted to want a ring. Almost. [My money is better spent on putting it into a 401k]. However, $2.99 on Amazon Instant was a very well deserved investment.
A good one to enjoy with the kids and kids at heart. Go play, y'all. :)
The movie opens to the primary threat, as we see that the longtime foe of the Guardians, Krona, is back with a new threat, emerging as a giant from the sun around which Oa revolves, with a host of shadow demons at his command. He retreats after the initial foray but it's clear that a full attack is imminent so the Corps is mustered to be prepared to fight back. The newest Lantern, a very young Arisia, nervously awaits battle, and to calm her nerves, Jordan narrates these stories for her. So what are these stories?
1. The story of the creation of the Corps and of Arva, the first real Green Lantern, the first one who worked out how to create a construct, how to use the ring to its full potential, how to properly muster the will to turn the ring into the most powerful weapon in the Universe. In the dawn of the Universe, chaos and evil run rampant and the Guardians must muster the power of Will into a powerful weapon. The first four rings are granted to the mightiest warriors in the Universe and to one other: Arva, a scribe, the chronicler of the Guardians. The four are overwhelmed and are in retreat but Arva refuses to lose his faith in the Guardians. In one desperate, last-ditch fight, he digs deep inside himself and finds the will to become the first true Green Lantern.
2. The story of Kilowog and of the tough-as-nails drill sergeant, Deegan, who trained him. Deegan puts his recruits through hell, much to the dismay of a somewhat uncertain Kilowog. The drill becomes real as they are summoned to fight off invaders on a nearby planet. Deegan takes on the invaders, instructing the rookies to protect the civilians. Unfortunately, the invaders are tougher than Deegan anticipated and he is thrown down. When all seems lost, a late-arriving Kilowog arrives, fighting off the invaders and inheriting the mantle of his predecessor. This could be the story of any sergeant working with a team of raw recruits, watching one of those recruits become something more. It's a bit of a cliche but it's well done.
3. The story of Laira, a Lantern raised in a home where honor means everything. She had been summoned to her home world, which had been declared a rogue world, engaging in the genocide of its enemies. Laira is forced to fight her stepmother, her brother, and, ultimately and to her great grief, her father, a man who, we learn in a flashback, was passed over by the ring when it selected Laira instead of him. In a prior attack by the very enemies they are now destroying, Laira's father was defeated. A Green Lantern arrived to protect him but ultimately was killed by the relentless enemy. On his death, the ring selected Laira, who used the ring as a beacon to summon the Corps to her father's aid.
Back in the present, Laira is initially overwhelmed, since she really does not wish to fight the man she still loves very much. She finally recognizes what he has become, however, calls on her will, and defeats him. In the process, her father finally sees what he has become, what he has lost, and decides that he must pay a price. The ending is a bit disturbing but it is a logical conclusion, based on what we know of the family.
4. The story of Mogo. This is based on a story by Dave Gibbons and Alan Moore (the latter of whom is better known as the author of V for Vendetta, Watchmen, and other classic graphic novels and comic book series). This is the story of Bolphunga, the Unrelenting, the mightiest warrior in the galaxy. Well, mightiest except for one: Mogo. Bolphunga hears of Mogo and decides to challenge him. If you don't know the story, I'll stop here, as revealing anything more would spoil the fun. And fun it is, in a well-told and amusing tale.
5. The story of the friendship of Abin Sur and Sinestro. This story begins with a battle between Abin Sur, wielding a nearly depleted ring, and Atrocitus, a being who claims to be able to talk to Destiny and see something of the future. Atrocitus has Abin Sur's lantern and is withholding it until Sinestro arrives to help. To buy himself some time, Atrocitus cracks open the battery, rendering it unstable and subject to a devastating explosion. In a desperate last-ditch attempt to save the world, Abin Sur, with a ring at near zero power level, grabs the lamp, recharges his ring, and flies off into space, where the lamp explodes. Fortunately, Abin Sur was able to protect himself and he returns to take out Atrocitus.
Sinestro explains that Atrocitus is part of a terrorist organization and his goal is to take down the Green Lantern Corps. In the ensuing discussion, we learn that Sinestro does not believe in destiny while Abin Sur does, and they ultimately agree to disagree. Before Atrocitus is imprisoned, however, he makes two predictions about Abin Sur's destiny. To find out what those are, you'll have to watch the movie. This is a somewhat unsatisfying story, as there doesn't seem to be much point to it. If you know the back story from the comic books, this will make more sense but even then I have to consider this the weakest of the group.
With the stories over, the main story resumes, with a planet-sized Krona beginning his final attack, as an enormous army of shadow demons attacks, overwhelming the members of the Corps. When all seems blackest, a little help from a rookie Lantern and a lot of help from an unexpected source turn the tide. The ending is a satisfying one.
There isn't any real unifying theme to these stories and they don't tie into the main storyline in any way that I could figure. Still, the stories are, for the most part, entertaining, even if a few of them are a bit cliched. The animation is good, with a good mix of CGI and hand-drawn animation, and the voice acting is very good, with Nathan Filion leading the way as Hal Jordan. Overall, I enjoyed the movie and can recommend it.
