One thing is for sure, with Marvel dominating the cinemas, it's a surefire bet DC has them on the ropes when it comes to animated fare, and that counts for something.

Eventually, the stories begin to rely on simple, clever solutions rather than violent ones.

Doesn't have a unified plot, but tells a handful of mini-stories very well.

The cosmic equivalent of hearing a Homeric epic in ancient times: we thrill to the battles, we wait with bated breath for the appearance of our favorite characters, and we root for noble, righteous warriors. [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

Witness the Color of Will.

Quite good! 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. That said, the animation is crisp and smooth with beautiful colors 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 too. Go see this great animated movie!

I really love how this expands the GL lore with short stories from multiple characters within the Corps. Top that off with some of the BEST animation and character designs I've seen from a non-Asian production... you've got yourself quite the winner.

I came into this with a lot of skepticism as I've never appreciated the title character but the lore presented here really fleshes out the concept with a lot of credible ideas.

I just wish it wasn't loosely strung into one film. Almost cheapens the experience of the short stories along the way.

This cartoon has absolutely nothing to do with the first cartoon, "First Flight." Sinestro was the villian there, here he is just another member of the Lantern Corps. This is really a series of different stories explaining the mythology behind the Green Lantern Corps(pretty much every character except the main character, Hal Jordan). If your like me and don't really know much about any of the characters, then this is a perfect introduction. Not sure if it will have anything to do with the story of the live action movie about to come out, but it's still very entertaining. The animation is good, parts reminded me of older cartoons like "Voltron". The stories are told at a good, brisk pace and are easy to follow. Overall, a pretty decent cartoon movie, better that "First Flight" and a good introduction for possible future installments.
