By Luke
Format:DVD
I was pleased with this movie. The animation was mostly excellent (with a few brief moments of really bad animation), the voice acting was superb, especially Victor Garber as Sinestro. The plot was a little over the top, but that's par for the course in a superhero movie.

One thing that prospective buyers should beware is that the digital copy is Windows Media format only. It will not work on iPods or iTunes. I bought the DVD (at a brick and mortar store) and I did read the fine print before buying it. However, I'm sure some iTunes/iPod users may balk at the idea of paying extra for the special edition, which contains an essentially useless (to iPod/iTunes users) digital copy. It seems especially silly since the iTunes ecosystem is much larger than the Windows Media ecosystem.

The special features are also compelling. There's a two-part episode of the Justice League, some documentaries, a first look at the Superman-Batman animated movie, and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Thrilling Story Aug. 18 2009
Format:DVD
I am a moderate Green Lantern fan who found this movie very good. The voice acting was superb, especially by Sinestro and the music was perfectly selected to give each scene a mesmerizingly dramatic effect. The tension continuously builds throughout the story leaving the viewer enthralled in the intensity. The main villian in this story is very cynical and interesting to watch on screen. I would recommend this movie to any comics fan, and to anyone who enjoys a tightly packed and intense story.

4.0 out of 5 stars well done March 5 2010
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
i thought this was a very well done animated movie.it's the origin story of how Hal Jordan became a Green Lantern.i have no idea how close it is to the original comic book origin.but i do knew,i loved the story.i thought it flowed very well,with a good mixture of action and drama.i thought the voice acting was terrific.plus,they seemed to have a good script to work with.i found the dialogue to be really good,as well.none of the usual cheese we tend to see in many animated or even live action movies.i think this particular animated film is as good as any of the recent spate of releases by both Marvel and DC,and it's certainly as entertaining.for me,Green Lantern:First Flight is a 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars First Flight? Let's Hope There's a Second! May 18 2010
Format:DVD
4.5 out of 5

Pilot Hal Jordan goes for the ride of his life when his test pod is mysteriously transported from the safety of an airforce hanger to a rocky desert only to encounter a bizarre dying alien named Abin Sur, who had summoned Jordan via his powerful. Abin Sur dies and Hal's world is turned upside down and he is introduced to the Green Lantern Corps, guardians of the galaxy. Under the tutelage of Sinestro, Hal learns to use his newfound power and witness, thanks to Sinestro's words and actions, that the Guardians of Oa--those who created the Green Lantern Corps and the green lantern power battery--have grown soft in their approach to intergalactic crime. Sinestro believes a more stern approach is needed and so takes Hal under his wing to show him that might makes right.

The Corps faces a crisis as the Yellow Element--the only force capable of weakening the Green Element, which powers the Corps's green battery on Oa--has been stolen. Should it be used against them, the Green Lantern Corps will crumble and the galaxy as we know it will no longer be protected and chaos and evil will reign.

Green Lantern, to me, has always been a cool character, yet he's also always been an overlooked character outside the realm of us hardcore superhero guys. Batman? Sure. Superman? We know him even better. Spider-Man? Yeah, good movies on the big screen. But Green Lantern? Wasn't he that green guy from that old Super Friends show, the one with that ring that does stuff and, um, well . . .

Green Lantern is an outside character. He's known and he's unknown. I think of him like Superman, the difference being is he takes the ring off and he's a guy like you and me.

3.0 out of 5 stars A run of the mill origin story Feb. 16 2013
By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The title I gave this review - "A run of the mill origin story" - pretty much sums up my take.

Our tale begins with an alien green lantern crash-landing on Earth. He dies shortly thereafter, but not before giving his power-ring to Hal Jordan: the hero of the piece, and the character all true fanboys will recognize as THE definitive green lantern.

This movie does differ from most other superhero origin stories in that the part where the hero actually gains superpowers is dispensed with very quickly. The focus is on the hero's first adventure - the one where he earns his spurs as a superhero. Hence the title "First Flight". But in all other respects this piece is pretty formulaic. There are a couple of twists here and there, but nothing major. The production values and the voice acting are all up to the exceptionally high standards that we've come to expect from DC's animated offerings. Otherwise...

Meh.

A lot of the animated DC stuff Bruce Timm has released over the years - in particular I'm thinking of Justice League Unlimited and Batman - Mask of the Phantasm - has had real depth; far beyond what most people expect from the superhero genre. This one just doesn't. Don't get me wrong: there's nothing especially bad about this movie. It's more that there's nothing that really stands out as especially good about it either.

The up side is, if you're after a rocket-fueled, high powered action flick, this movie delivers in spades. What you see is what you get, and what we get is a grand, galactic-scale adventure.
