Storyline

On Oa, the headquarters planet of the intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps, the Guardians of the Universe see alarming evidence that the feared villain, Krona, is coming to destroy the planet. While the Guardians move to evacuate, Green Lantern Hal Jordan helps the unsure new recruit, Arisia, by telling her several stories of fellow Lanterns and the challenges they faced. Through him, we see the adventures of Avra the first Lantern, Princess Laira, Kilowog, the unsociable Mogo and Jordan's immediate predecessor, Abin Sur. When Krona arrives, those stories prove more valuable than anyone expects as Arisia draws a special inspiration from them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

Two of the segments are based on the stories of Alan Moore: "Mogo Doesn't Socialize" and "Tygers". Only the illustrators, Dave Gibbons and Kevin O'Neil receive screen credit for the original work, as was the case for Gibbons on the screen adaptation of Watchmen. This is because Moore, displeased by earlier adaptations of his stories, now typically refuses to be credited for subsequent ones. See more »

User Reviews

 
Pretty much brilliant
8 September 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I like the comics very much, feeling rather nostalgic for them for the joy they gave me as a kid. I loved this movie and find it much better than the live-action movie. It was lovely to hear Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan, and he does do a great job, however I think he was deserving of a little more to do. That said, the animation is crisp and smooth with beautiful colours and detailed backgrounds, and the music is exciting and gives plenty of emotional weight. The writing is sharp, clever and thoughtful, the stories while episodic are told with clarity and heart and all the characters are engaging and have great personalities. The voice acting is very strong, with Jason Isaacs particularly impressive as Sinestro. All in all, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is pretty much brilliant. 9/10 Bethany Cox
