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

Although character and production design is copied directly from Green Lantern: First Flight (2009), this is essentially a reboot of the previous film happening in a different time line. For example, in First Flight, Arisa is already established as a Green Lantern and Hal Jordan is the newcomer while in Emerald Knights, she is the rookie and Hal Jordan is the trainer. In First Flight, Sinestro obtains the yellow power ring and becomes the villain while in Emerald Knights, he's still a member of the Green Lantern Corps and his fate as leader of the Sinestro Corps is predicted to happen much later. Finally in First Flight, the individual power batteries were eliminated as was the need for regular recharging and the Oath was only used on special occasions. In Emerald Knights, the individual batteries are restored, the rings are recharged at regular intervals and the Oath is recited with each recharging (which is more consistent with the comic book story lines).

Superior to Live Action Film in Nearly Every Way
6 December 2011 | by phxpoetSee all my reviews

I picked up Emerald Knights and All-Star Superman for an extremely cheap price during Black Friday weekend and after being somewhat disappointed by the indifferent effort on All-Star Superman I was stunned by the high quality of Emerald Knights. One of the elements I enjoy about the Geoff Johns era of Green Lantern comics is the distinction that's made as to how each Green Lantern wields the power ring. Emerald Knights digs a little deeper and showcases the differences between the various Green Lanterns themselves. Like the artistic renditions, the stories of how Green Lanterns find their own path to greatness are unique and well executed. In all, there are five tales recounted to a rookie member of the Green Lantern Corps as war stories while the collective group prepares to face their greatest challenge; the transition from the current story to the flashback tales can come off as a little forced, but the content is of high enough quality that you will forgive the obvious method of delivery. The only other real shortcomings are that, like the live action Green Lantern movie, the big bad isn't fleshed out a lot and the lack of white incorporated into the costumes can make the Corps look a little homogeneous. Overall, though, check this movie out if you want to see a Green Lantern movie the way it's supposed to be.
